You’ve probably heard about how important morning mindset is before. Maybe you’re skeptical about how well it works, or you think its a waste of time-mornings are supposed to be hectic and fast paced, aren’t they? Well, if you want to revolutionize your life, start living with purpose, and be productive each and every day, then you better believe it starts with morning mindset.
The morning is when you set your goals for the day. What do you want to accomplish, and how will you do it? It’s just like someone going out on a journey. Before they set sail, they need to have a destination and a map to lead them there. If you’re missing either of those things, then you’re just wandering aimlessly.
Perhaps you like to say you “live in the moment.” Except you know what you’re missing? The direction. What are your big dreams, destinations, goals? If you live in the moment, how will you ever achieve those things? You’ll never even work towards them.
That is the power of taking time in the morning to complete some morning mindset and reflection time. You don’t merely have aspirations-you have a plan. You don’t just have a plan though-you take action. Your morning is the best time to spur yourself to take action on the things you’ve been putting off, so don’t waste it.
How do you make the most of your morning mindset time?
There are some key areas you should think about and things you should do when you are setting your morning mindset.
- Meditation: Take some time to just breathe. Find a quiet spot, cross your legs, and just focus on maintaining a steady breathing rhythm. Clear your thoughts. This is a good time to live in the moment. You can also try putting soft instrumental music in the background.
- What will you take action on today? This will urge you to stop procrastinating on a project, or push you to do something you otherwise would have put off or avoided.
- 3 things I must do today: List these in order of priority. This will be your focus for the day.
- Visualize success: Ask yourself, what does success look like today? If you have a clear vision for what you want to do, it will be easier to get it done. PLUS, you’ll feel more motivated.
- Affirmations: Say them out loud. It could even be a quote like, “do what’s best, not what’s easy” to remind yourself of how you want to be living your life, and each day.
