Morning is the most productive portion of the day and if you can reap the benefits of this portion, you will achieve any goal you set in your life. No matter if you are an entrepreneur, a professional, a freelancer, an athlete, or a student. To create an extremely productive lifestyle, you have to follow some meaningful morning rituals. So I have compiled a list of these 5 morning rituals you have to observe in the morning.
1. Move your body - One of the most important morning rituals
If you want to get your body and mind running fast together, you need to move your body. Exercise, Yoga, Cycling, Running or Walking will make you fit. This serves as the base for your high-performance level from the start of your day.
If you have never been to the gym or have never done any exercise, you can start with 5 minutes rotating and stretching your body. Once your body starts adapting this, you can increase the time and add some more exercises like pushups and squats. Set a goal for the time and gradually increase it to 40 minutes a day. You will see the effects soon!
Successful people know the benefits of meditation. It reduces stress and depression and helps you develop a high level of focus and attention to the moment removing any disturbing stuff from your mind, allowing you to make better and smarter decisions. It will also boost your energy level in the morning and help you stay tuned with your goal for the whole day.
You can use any technique you feel comfortable with, i.e. sitting in a calm room with fresh and aromatic air or under a tree in the garden, listening to a smooth and relaxing music or chanting any mantra or any of the many ways of meditation. The important rule to get the benefit of meditation is to do it daily at the same time.
3. Be grateful for what you have
By being grateful for what you have, you stay on the ground and in the existing moment and can have a different view of your surroundings and existence. This way you will have an awareness of what you have while running after your goals. This keeps you in control of yourself preventing you from ignoring your present happiness and reality while expecting future gains and happiness.
4. Set your goals for the day
Ask yourself "What would I be doing if this is my last day of life?". This question will prompt your thinking about the important things in your life making you clear on what you should be doing during the day.
Steve Jobs used to ask himself a question at the starting of the day, "If these days have been the final day of my existence, would I want to do what I'm about to do with my day?" If the answer is no to a thing, it means he needs to change it.
5. Drink of the morning
Make a drink out of fruits and vegetables. It contains micronutrients, vitamins, and minerals which are essential for your body to function at its best. Start every morning with this powerful drink. The energy you get from vegetables and fruits boosts your creativity and productivity. Also, fruit and veggies play a vital role in enhancing your happiness and outlook.
