I always get asked what my morning routines are like?
To be honest, I’ve spent many years mastering my mornings no matter what time I wake up. I’ve learned that the most successful people have a routine that they follow…and I’ve learned that routines are very helpful with my personal life.
My first rule for the mornings is to have a quick meditation. Lately, with my one year old daughter, it’s not easy to do long meditations. I start with a quick 5 minute meditation to just get me in the right mind set.
After my meditation, I plan out my day. I like to know what I am going to do, hour by hour and what I could expect. If there is any challenges, I like to think in my head that the problems are already solved. It’s the power of the mind and what I manifest. In my mind, I am a winner and I can overcome any obstacle.
My third tip for obtaining a productive morning is putting effort in looking my best. When I look my best, I feel my best. This helps with my confidence and gives me strength to be a BOSS. BOSS: built on self success!
When I get in the car, I like to listen to motivational speeches or BPM. I love EDM music and it really pumps me up in the mornings. Sometimes, I call my best friends who inspire and uplift me.
My last tip for a productive morning is to always remind yourself on why you started. This morning I was having a conversation with my childhood friend talking about life. I was having a morning where I just wasn’t feeling it. After all, I am human and have my ups and downs. My wonderful friend reminded me on why I started my career and how far I have come. That realization of how far I have come was a big confidence booster. I walked into my office, OBSEV Studios feeling like a true BOSS. Sometimes we forget the big hurdles we have overcome to bring us to where we are today. We need to celebrate the mini accomplishments along with the big ones.
Find the little things that make you happy in life. To be honest, I get so excited when I get my tea latte in the mornings. It used to be a coffee fanatic, but now that I quit…I’ve switched to green tea lattes. It is my fuel to get my day going.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Please leave me comments on what topics you guys want me to talk about next on my blog.
