Morning routine is so critical when it comes to structuring your day, and being more productive.
But how do you really structure it in a way to make it happen, especially if you’re not a morning person like me?
I’ve gone through a lot of different trainings on setting up your morning routine, and so many people are early birds, who wake up at 4 or 5 am, and I just couldn’t do it. I mean, I can try to do that, but my body is not used to waking up at that time every single day. I usually wake up either at 8 or 9 am, so I had to figure out my own morning routine, that fits me best.
I’m basically a night owl, and I found that I get a lot more stuff done during the night, because I don’t get any distractions. So I can stay “in the zone” for hours, and get a ton of important things done for the upcoming day. And when you live in Europe, and most of the business stuff goes off of American Eastern time, you definitely gotta stay up late (gotta love the time zones, right?).
So if you’re not a morning person, and have been struggling with how to put together a routine for yourself, read this post and watch the video below. If it helped me, it’s gonna absolutely help you.
One of the most important things I can tell you about starting your day right is – don’t check your email and social media notifications when you wake up. This is how you can absolutely ruin your day. All of those things can wait. And guess what – it’s other people’s agenda to get your attention to what they have to say to you. There’s nothing THAT important that requires your attention and time in the morning.
Instead – put your phone on the airplane mode, and read affirmations right after you wake up. I shared this earlier, and I used to be very skeptic about them, but they DO work! Write your affirmations down TODAY (if you don’t have them already) on a piece of paper, and take a picture of it with your phone. So in the morning you can just read them in your phone (and you’ve got the affirmations with you whenever you travel too, which is pretty cool).
The second thing that I do before I get my day started and before I move on to all the other activities, I write my goals down. I learned this from Grant Cardone not that long ago, and I was neglecting this task too. I was thinking to myself – why does that even matter to me? How is writing my goals down gonna impact my business and my results? I was SO WRONG! I get so excited and fired up whenever I write them down (I have a special notebook for that), and I visualize all these goals being already accomplished. This is very very powerful.
In the video below I talk about this strategy in more details, and I also share exactly what I do after these two tasks. And I could create a morning routine by not being a “morning person”, you CAN DO IT TOO!
