The Right way
Posted by Coach Jeremy.
This is one of the hardest, but best things to do every morning if you want to be successful. If you already get up early, as in around 6 a.m. or 6:30 a.m., then don’t worry; I’m not talking to you since you're already on top of the game! I’m speaking to those of you who get up around 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. like I used to. I work at home, I’m able to get up whenever I choose. If you have this option to get up early, do it! I get more done in the early hours of the day and have less distractions. Each morning, I get up at 6 a.m., and I’m working out by 6:30 a.m. and eating breakfast by 8:00 a.m. or 8:30 a.m. This is especially a great tool if you want to get more done each day. It is reported that most successful people, even President himself, gets up at 6:00 a.m or 6:30 a.m.. each day. So, if the President himself can find the time, surely we all can!

3. EAT BREAKFAST
We all know breakfast is important, but did you know that all successful people make sure not to skip this important meal? Don’t eat too early if you’ve had a late dinner, but be sure to eat something at least a couple hours after you get up. Since I wake up at 6 a.m., I myself am not in the mood to sit down and eat first thing. It actually helps me wake up to get up and move first thing, get the mind working. Then, I refuel afterwards and I feel great all day long. In fact, I am much more capable of focusing on the tasks the rest of the day by fuelling up first thing. All successful people know how important mental function is in generating ideas, accomplishing tasks efficiently, and increasing motivation for the day ahead. Plus, not eating breakfast can make you cranky, so do everyone else a favor, and eat before you start your day!
4. BE ORGANIZED
One other thing that highly successful people have in common is that they are very organized when it comes to their morning routine, This means, keeping your room organized. Don’t leave your bed unmade, clothes all over the floor and your bathroom a train wreck. Every time you do, these visual cues send teeny tiny signs of stress to your brain, and can make you feel chaotic, even if you’re not. Be organized, and you’ll feel more together, more on top of your game and ready for the day ahead. Coming from a slob turned neat freak, I’m here to tell you- this works!
5. LEAVE YESTERDAY BEHIND
One really important thing you must do every morning is not to get up regretting yesterday’s choices, decisions, losses, etc. If you had a tiff with a friend, or someone said something that upset you, you must leave it in the past. leave what ever it is behind you alone and focus on today. Every successful person approaches the new day ahead with a new attitude, positive outlook and with a plan, not a regret. You cannot change what is past, but having the right outlook for the day ahead will give you the ability to make today better.
6. BE CONFIDENT
One really simple thing I have found that works very well is to give yourself a pep talk each morning. I do give myself a mental pep talk each morning though, telling myself that I have everything it takes to get through this day, accomplish what is needed, and be open to new ideas and possibilities that can enhance my life, or other lives around me. Be prepared for any situation by giving yourself a confidence boost each morning. This gets you motivated and makes you more confident to the world around you. Doing anything that makes you feel more confident is a great way to start the day. I also like reading an inspirational passage or quote each morning, which gives me something positive to focus on first thing.
7. PLAN YOUR DAY
The best way to have a successful morning is by mapping out your day. This means focusing on your to-do list and goals for the next 24 hours. The only way you can maximize your efficiency for the day is by knowing the exact order of things that need to be done. The early part of the day is best for reflection because your mind is clear and your environment is quiet. So from the second you wake up, plan your daily routine in your head or write it down and then go on with your day knowing you got it all figured out!
8. TRACK YOUR TIME
While planning your to-do list, it is also important to keep a time frame in mind. After all there are only 24 hours in a day and yet there are so many things that need to be done. Make sure to assign an appropriate number of hours for each task so you can properly space out everything and not run out of time. Be sure to remember to schedule in some quiet time for relaxation and healthy meals to take care of yourself and avoid stress.
9. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT EVERYDAY
If you do today waht you did yesterday, then tomorrow you will have what you have today

Then go to bed with regularity. Regularity is very important if you want to sleep well. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time. Having a bedtime routine (like having a bath & watching a motivational video before bed) will help your brain wind down and prepare you for sleep, and get you ready for the new day.
