Are you the kind of person that deals with the daily challenges of life as they are presented to you? Do you start your day as if it’s a blank page waiting for forces greater than you to create the journal of your day’s experiences? At the end of the day you frequently wonder what it is you have accomplished? Do you wish you had some secret power that could control the outcomes that are written in your daily journal? Would you prefer to be able to finish the day satisfied with your accomplishments and realizing that you had at least some control over what transpired during the course of your day?
Perhaps a major part of the secret formula you are needing in the quest to be more productive and to have some sense of control of your life’s outcome is to simply create a positive morning routine.
Most people have a morning routine, but it isn’t necessarily empowering to their day. It most likely looks something like this: the alarm goes off at 8:00 a.m., the snooze button is pressed once and maybe twice, then realizing that you are late, you hop out of bed, dash for the shower, do the bare necessities of personal grooming, and you are in your car by 8:30, stopping somewhere for 7 minutes to get coffee and a Danish and praying that the traffic is such that you can arrive to work at 9:00 a.m. Sadly, that’s the description of the start of most people’s day, give or take a little variation.
Now, to those that sincerely wish they could be more productive in their daily life, to have more control of accomplishing the goals and dreams that they have set for themselves, and their family, there might be a better formula for achieving those goals. I call it a Positive Morning Routine!
Positive Morning Routine, formula:
Wake up an hour earlier than you currently do, and forget about the snooze button. Get out of bed, start the coffee pot, and then do, at the minimum, some basic exercises to get the blood pumping and the endorphins flowing. Maybe sit ups, pushups, jumping jacks, stretching, riding a stationary bicycle for 5 or 10 minutes.
By then your coffee is ready to sip while you read a chapter from a motivational book or perhaps while listening to a motivational recording while you are exercising.
Afterwards review you goals (or take that time to create your goals). Study them and take time to evaluate your progress and strategize on how to improve your success. Acknowledge your accomplishments and praise yourself, even out loud if possible, your subconscious will definitely record that thought and sound as a positive success in the brain patterns.
Budget your time such that your necessary grooming will get you out of the house and on the road to work 10 minutes earlier than usual. Arriving to work 10 minutes earlier will have a significant effect on the peacefulness and organization of your thought processes in preparing for your work day duties.
If you dare attempt these suggestions I can almost guarantee to you that the results of this new discipline will improve your daily accomplishments to unprecedented levels and you will adopt these suggestions as YOUR NEW daily routine.
