I get asked all the time, “How the heck do you get so much done and how to do you have so much energy all the time?”
One of the absolute keys to my success is the morning ritual I follow each day. By starting my day off with the right fuel for my mind and body through mindset, focus, nutrition, and exercise THAT is what powers me through the day.
Don’t have a morning ritual? Give this one a try! I SWEAR, in 30 days, it will change your life.
I start off by thinking about 3 things I’m grateful for, even before I get out of bed. This helps me start my day with an “attitude of gratitude”. When your day starts off on a positive and invigorating note, like thinking about the things you’re so happy and honored to have in your life, you can’t help but take the rest of your day in a positive direction.
Next, I read off my goals for the month. I keep them written out so I can not only read them every morning, but so I can see them and be reminded of them throughout the day.
After that, I practice what’s called “future pacing” by reading a short letter I wrote to myself at the beginning of the month. This letter is very specific and purposeful. It is written as though the month has already passed and I’m looking back on it congratulating myself. I’m setting the “pace” for what my future is going to look like.
(These 3 things take a total of about 5 minutes.)
Last, I start my day with a healthy breakfast, typically a quick smoothie, and some exercise. By eating a healthy breakfast, studies have proven that you’re more likely to make healthy food choices for the rest of the day. And, by getting your exercise done first, you not only get it out of the way and don’t have to worry about squeezing it into your busy day, but you feel energized and fantastic all day!
