Have you heard the saying, “well begun is half done”? It means beginning a task correctly and properly makes the rest of the task easier. The same can be applied to our daily life too.
Every successful person has a morning routine, which they follow without fail. It’s one of the reasons behind their continuous success. It can bring amazing results and changes in our daily lives. If you care to google on this topic you will find numerous posts about the positive reasons why you should wake up early, exercise and have a routine that fits your time plan perfectly.
Past three years, I missed getting up with the larks and enjoying the moments of calm before the hustle and bustle of the day began, due to various reasons. But now that I’m back in order, I realize what I was missing in those years. To me, my morning routine is the best and favourite part of the day. It works wonders in my life.
Maybe you should try it too. Here are five reasons to convince you on that 😉
BRINGS AN ORDER TO LIFE
Or more like an aim. I know what I’m supposed to do when I open my eyes and it compels me to get up from the bed. There were many days without any plan and I would go back to sleep knowing I have nothing to do and have the rest of the day to figure things out. Well, it has changed now. I strike off most of the tasks on my to-do list in the morning itself and still has ample time left to browse through the internet or catch up with the latest news.
ALWAYS ON/BEFORE TIME
The order helps to finish the tasks efficiently and on time, and be ready to leave the house without running late. There is enough time left to double check on things and reach the destination early before the rush hour begins. I use the time till friends arrive, to read the book or brush up the lessons on the previous day. This helps me control my nerves and be super calm and poised to face what the day brings on.
IMPROVE TIME MANAGEMENT
It comes with the daily morning routine. Learning to get ahead of the plan has taught me how to utilize and manage the available time efficiently. The practice has made things a lot easier. I make a list of what needs to be done the night before, and try to accomplish them within the available time. Don’t know how to explain it, but it’s been working well for me.
REDUCE THE LEVEL OF STRESS
Phew! Getting the jobs done in a decent manner is always counted as an accomplishment in my list. Knowing I have done all that got to be done keeps the stress level too low. There are no fretting or shedding tears over something I couldn’t do, neither any scenarios of dreading what it might cause. I’ve been a lot happier these days. And most of the credit goes to my morning routine.
FEELING POSITIVE ALL THE WAY
It’s not just about getting the tasks done and being ready on time. It starts with each thing I do since waking up; each thing contributes to the final such as the faith/hope from reading the Bible, the energy after yoga and meditation, eating a healthy breakfast and running chores in between. Did I miss tea? 😉 And gratitude? All things together work the magic and boost up my level of confidence.
Do you agree? Do you have a morning routine? Has it changed your daily life in any way? I would like to hear it.
