Entrepreneur and blogger Benjamin Hardy told how to plan the first hours of the morning to spend every day with meaning.
Don't do anything that causes stress. In stressful situations, the hormone cortisol is released, which will not let you fall asleep. Instead, do something relaxing and remember the simple rules:
"Treat yourself like your smartphone: sleep until you are fully recharged," advises Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post.
According to research by the American National Sleep Foundation, when we regularly get enough sleep, memory, resourcefulness and attention improve, inflammation, stress and the risk of depression decrease, and life expectancy increases.
If you get enough sleep and take care of your body, you won't need caffeine and other stimulants. For the most part, we use them because of the work schedule from 8 to 17 hours, constant lack of sleep and dependence on technology.
As the American thinker Ralph Waldo Emerson said, self—confidence is the main secret of success. And self-confidence arises when you do what you promised yourself.
The first promise in the morning — to get up or not at the planned time — will direct the whole day in a positive or negative direction.
Go outside or at least leave the bedroom to another room. So you will cheer up. A simple change of scenery energizes, because our brain loves everything new.
Morning is the perfect time to think about the desired future. At this time, your brain is tuned to creativity. Engage in meditation, and then visualize your goals. Turn on your imagination and imagine how you want to see your life.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination covers the whole world.
When you visualize and write down your goals, do it with feeling. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. Try on this feeling. It will help you to act differently so that the future is different from the past.
Write down your goals and the deadline for achieving them, as well as the price you have to pay for them. As billionaire Harold Hunt said, d in order to achieve success, two things are required. First: decide what exactly you want. Most people never do that. Second: determine the price you will have to pay, and then be determined to do it.
Train or just walk. At the same time, include audiobooks, podcasts or inspirational music. The movement will cheer you up, the brain will work better.
As Mark Twain said, if you eat a live frog in the morning, nothing worse will happen to you during the day. Do the difficult thing while the others are just rubbing their eyes.
If you want to be successful, do something for it. Success, like wealth, cannot be earned — it must be created. Turn on the creative mood and get to work.
