What you do before 8am everyday can shape the rest of your day and even the rest of your life.
Here are 7 things successful people do everyday before 8am
1. Wake up early
Successful people know the importance of sleep so they go to bed early and wake up early. A successful man won’t be found spending his nights watching late night movies. While he might have go to bed late sometimes, he generally goes to bed early so he can get adequate sleep and rise up early the following day.
Starting your day by saying a little prayer will help keep you positive and focused for the rest of the day. Use this time of the day to quickly express your gratitude.
Working out every morning helps give you a boost of energy for the day and successful people know this. You prepare yourself for the day’s activity when you exercise every morning. Don’t forget to jog or do some quick work out by 5am tomorrow even if it’s just for 10 minutes.
4. Take a cold shower
After working out, taking a cold shower will not only cleanse your body, it will also increase oxygen intake thereby releasing a rush of blood through the body. This helps make you alert.
5. Eat a healthy breakfast
It’s important to take a healthy breakfast to fuel your body for the tasks ahead. You should also ensure you don’t overfeed that early in the morning. Take something light and healthy.
Mornings are the best time to quickly spend some quiet time inside your mind visualising your life goals. When we’re clear on what we intend to accomplish in a day and we make out a plan to realise it, we’re more likely to make it happen. Every morning, visualise how you hope to use that day to achieve your dreams. You should aim to get closer to your goals every day.
7. Map out your plans for the day
If you don’t use a to-do list, I advise you to use one after today. It’s important to map out your plans for the day as it helps you prioritize your activities for the day and keep you organised.
