How to Order Your Day for Success

Updated on June 24, 2016

1. Wake Up Early

So, you’re not a morning person. That’s fine. You can become a morning person. I’m not saying that you are going to wake up one day and love talking to people first thing in the morning. What I am saying is there’s probably nothing about the morning itself that you hate.

For many of us waking up early is difficult because we don’t go to bed early enough. Make sure you go to bed in time to get 8 hours of sleep. You may feel a little disappointed going to bed before your 11:00pm show, but you’ll be happier in the morning. You wake up refreshed and ready to start the day.

Early doesn’t have to mean 4am. You can go to bed at 10pm and wake up at 6am or be in bed by 11pm and wake up at 7am. Just try to be up before 8am. It makes a huge difference!

2. Drink Plenty of Water

Starting your day with a tall glass of cold water may not seem quite as nice as starting it with a cup of coffee or tea, but it’s refreshing and healthy. Also, when you start going to bed in time to get 8 hours of sleep, you’ll find you won’t be as desperate for coffee.

Also, drinking a tall glass of water (12-18oz) will fill you up which is necessary considering that breakfast isn’t for a few more steps.

3. Rest

That’s right! Take 30 min to 1 hour and half to rest. Rest emotionally and spiritually. Take time to just be still. Think of something positive. Pray, read an inspirational book, or watch an inspirational message. Set your worries and schedule aside and do whatever you can to introduce some calm positivity into your life.

This will help you not to rush through your day. When you take time to rest first thing in the morning, you won’t find yourself so exhausted throughout the day.

4. Work Out

After you’ve taken time to be still, get moving! Working out releases endorphins that will make you happier throughout the day. You feel good about yourself because you are doing something good for yourself.

Try to workout at least 5 days out of the week, even if it’s only going for a walk. Exercising in the morning will help you to make better choices throughout the day. You might find yourself reaching for healthier snacks. After all, you don’t want to take away from the hard work you put in exercising.

5. Eat a Filling Breakfast

You’ve earned it! And if you really want, you can have a coffee with your breakfast. Incorporate fruits to get your sweet fix for the morning and some veggies because you have to have your veggies! Incorporate whole grains to fill you up.

Breakfast can be a little reward for all the good things you did that morning.

6. Pamper Yourself

Pamper yourself with a nice shower. Get the temperature just right and use your favorite soap. Brush your teeth and use mouthwash for that super clean feeling. It’s about finding joy in the little things.

Pick out an outfit you're proud of and use perfume or cologne to really make yourself feel good.

7. Work

Whether you’re going to your job or working from home, it’s important to grind. You’ve done all these great things and you haven’t even started your day yet. So get started! Work hard and work with excellence. You’ll be so pumped after starting your morning right, this will feel effortless.

8. Take Breaks

Take breaks for lunch and dinner. Enjoy these breaks. Get work off of your mind and watch a TV show or chat with friends during your break. Read the news. Do whatever you want as long as it isn’t work and doesn’t remind you of work.

9. Rest Again

At the end of your day, rest again. Take time to wind down. Read a book, watch TV, knit, or whatever relaxes you. Some people talk to their friends to destress. Wash your face with a mask or take a bubble bath. Your options are endless, just make sure you do what’s fun and relaxing for you. Chances are you’ll have an hour or two to do this so enjoy it. Then make sure you get to bed on time!

10. Sleep and Repeat

That’s right! Go to sleep and repeat the steps all over again.

Switch up the steps, take some out, add some in and see how you like it. If you try any or all the steps let me know how it works out for you in the comment section below.
