Awaken Early .. Awaken New Opportunities …

Awaken Early .. Awaken New Opportunities …

I just as much as the next person LOVE my beauty sleep and am not a fan of going to bed early. Growing up I always had the stay up late and anything before 6:45 was too early. I could never understand the joy people received from getting up in the early am hours and were happy about it!

It wasn’t till I forced myself to get up and train morning classes (5:00, 5:45, 6:30) that I began to realize the importance and benefits of an early wake up call.

Most successful people you read about start their morning off before the sun rises.When getting up early you having the time to get activities done that are going to have a considerably positive impact.

Here are some of the great habits successful people have incorporated first thing in the morning. Not only are these traits powerful they put you in such a good state right of the bat!

Morning Meditation: Getting centered in your quiet time in the peace and quiet of the early morning will give you a clear mind and keep you centered, focused, and less distracted on the tasks that are really important to you.

Morning Movement: It does not matter if it is 4am or 6am I make sure I have a good 30 to 45 minutes of activity before I go to work. It helps me stay on top of my game, gets my blood flowing and mind prepared for the activities in my day. It also ensures I get my workout in, as some times we have problems arise in the day that take us away from our workouts and now I prevented that from happening. There is relief in knowing that my morning workout is checked off the list.

Write it down: I begin each morning with my daily devotion and then proceed to write down my goals, and tasks at hand for that day. This has been a game changer for my career and really helped me to alleviate distractions in my day. You can write down an array of things, from what you are thankful for, what you love about you, what your dreams and aspirations are etc … When words are in your vision constantly you are subconsciously moving in their direction.

They say that to establish a new habit in your life, you have to continue to do ii for at least 28 days. If you want to take the plunge, you know what you have to do. Be disciplined and put yourself to bed early to see the positive results you will get from just waking up an hour earlier!
