Morning routines can be as simple as stumbling out of bed for a coffee. Or slamming the snooze button on your alarm clock for just 5 more minutes’ sleep. You either hate them or love them, but mornings are a damn certainty in our lives.
But did you know that the routines you put in place each morning can make the different between a shit day and one which rocks? Successful fempreneurs understand this and that’s why they’ve invested heavily in identifying and participating in some of the best morning routines I’ve ever seen. Want to know what they are?
Best Kick Ass Morning Routines of Successful Fempreneurs
- Make a List
No, not another to-do list! Instead you’re going to start cultivating a results-based mind-set by making an achievement list. Either before you go to bed, or first thing in the morning, make a list of everything you are going to accomplish that day. Stick to your list, adding things which pop up today onto tomorrow’s list. You’ll start the day with a sense of purpose, knowing what you’ve got to do to finish a winner.
- Start Strong
Our willpower is super strong in the mornings. We’re fresh, energised and ready to roll, which is why all the hard tasks should be scheduled for the morning. As the day goes on, our motivation and willpower shrinks, which is why it’s so easy to put off the challenging stuff for another time. Do it in the morning and then not only do you not have to worry about it, but you can feel great about what you’ve done all day long.
- Listen to Your Body Clock
Have you read “The Power Of When” by Michael Breus, PhD? Turns out we’re not all early birds, or lions as Michael has termed those of us who thrive with the rising sun. Successful fempreneurs arrange their morning routines to suit their chronotype, whether that is meeting with colleagues first or checking emails instead to avoid talking to them! Michael does point out that those who are most successful believe in the power of the early start (yes, the 5 AM club rocks) and if like me you’re serious about next level achievement, I highly recommend you read the book.
- Meditate and Journal
The answers you seek are already inside of you, just waiting for you to ask the questions and quiet your mind to hear them. I know that there are still those who don’t believe in the power of the pen, but I’m not one of them! If journaling is something that you’ve been skeptical about, or a frustrating activity, download my free workbook on powerful journaling questions to ensure a success mind-set.
- Visualise Your Day
Some fempreneurs are thinkers. They can really picture in their minds the tasks they are going to achieve and can map out their day this way. Others need to doodle on paper or create a flow chart of their tasks in order to work out what’s going to happen. Whatever way works best for you, this is a great way of not only mapping out your day, but also visualising the great stuff that is going to happen to you before it even occurs. There is nothing better than positive thinking.
