Best Early Morning Habits
If you want to be successful then you have to make the most out of the time that you have. We’re each given equal amounts of hours in a day but we’re not putting in the same efforts. It’s ironic to find that most of the less fortunate ones have more time to sleep and sit around doing nothing while the successful ones are always trying to stretch their time and hardly have an extra hour for rest. No wonder we’re all created equal but we don’t all of us end up the same way.
The following are only some of the best early morning habits of the successful ones among us in Singapore:
Making the bed
It doesn’t matter if you have a paid help or none. Getting up early and being able to make your bed as soon as you wake up gives you your first accomplishment of the day. This sets the tone to a productive day ahead as being able to accomplish one task makes you feel ready to take on another and the rest. Studies have also shown that those who are able to consistently make their beds as soon as they get up end up with more productive days.
Eating your healthy breakfast
Take it from Spongebob – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Skipping your breakfast is not a good idea nor is it a healthy one. In fact, you should eat your breakfast as if it’s a feast for a king. That means you eat the most quantity of food in your first meal of the day followed by lunch and the least on the dinner. Make sure that you eat a balanced breakfast, too. Have some fruits and veggies on the side with some source of protein and carbs.
A moment for meditation
Taking a 15 to 20 minute break for your meditation is good for your soul and mind. It is said that you don’t really gain anything from meditating but what you get rid of are a lot. You get rid of your anxiety, fears, negativities, and that senseless chatter in your mind. Meditating in a day makes you feel refreshed and gives you a sense of more control and awareness of self. You’ll find your days go through smoother as compared to those days where you’re easily irritated, anxious, and hot-tempered.
Your eight to five office schedule may not really give you enough opportunities to move your body. Keep physically fit and don’t let those fats take some room around your waist by doing your regular physical exercise. You can wake a bit earlier and go out for an hour of jogging, biking, or swimming. You can do your own set of physical trainings, too, by following some aerobic programs. You only need at least two and a half hours of vigorous physical activity in a week. This can mean even less than thirty minutes of physical activity every day. So what’s your excuse?
