Sharing what works for me.
Sleep early. Because without your body’s natural repair and rejuvenation system, it cannot do its work. If you sleep at 4 am and until 11 am, those 7 hours are not the same if you sleep from 10 pm to 5 am. By doing that, you wake up well-rested, ready to take on the day.
Hydrate. About 60% of our bodies are water. And to keep our bodies going, we need to replenish the water we lose through different bodily functions. That’s why we should drink a glass of water in the morning when we wake up. At the most basic level, it wakes you up.
Move. Movement is life; stagnation is death. By moving our body in the morning, we get rid of sluggishness and activate the air element in the body and make it light. It also makes us more alert and creative. Alertness help in different cognitive function, and we need creativity everywhere.
Bathe. This is also linked to a large part of our bodies being water. By porting water over our bodies we refresh and clean them. It acts as a channel through which we break free from impressions of yesterday.
Eat. Give your nourishing food. And, don’t eat until you are too full. It will make you lethargic. And, your goal with food, especially in the morning, is to give your body energy to get a headstart.
Work. Take care of your #1 priority first thing in the morning. By doing this, you feel a sense of winning the day early enough, and this enthusiasm and energy help with other things too.
By doing this, you’ll set yourself up for a good day.
And don’t forget to rest because all work and no play make Jack a dull boy. You don’t want to be dull. You want to be full of energy and creativity. So rest after you have worked for 2-5 hours.
After this, you can have work again after eating a light lunch. But, again, this can vary depending on what you do.
Later in the day, spend time pursuing a hobby. Spend the rest of the day with family, friends, and nature.
End the day by slowing down with a ritual like listening to music or going for a walk. Then, go to bed and repeat the next day.
