Start the day off right with this morning ritual

Updated on May 31, 2017

We’ve all had that moment where we woke up on the wrong side of the bed; we feel as if we worked 20 hours the day before and we only got 4 hours of sleep and we have to do it all over again. Easy way to combat this problem would be to go back to sleep and try again. Unfortunately, for some of us we have plenty to do in a day and can’t afford the extra hours of sleep. This means that we have to get our minds and body in gear to start the long day ahead of us. This four-step ritual will have you ready to take anything that comes your way.

Breakfast

Of course, breakfast is the most important meal of the day; some people feel as if they don’t have time, so the skip it. Another thing they may do is pick something unhealthy and call it breakfast. To be honest if your breakfast is unhealthy then you might as well skip breakfast. Instead of opting out for a quick unhealthy fix, start your day with a breakfast that has a great serving a protein to fuel your body. You can find 100s of breakfast recipes; some of which are quick to prepare.

Read

This doesn’t read the newspaper or a magazine where all you’ll mostly find are gossip and bad news (why would you start your day like that?). Instead, read a motivating book; something that will allow you to see the world though a different view. This will get your creative juices flowing almost immediately. You could also read a book on something that you’re interested in like cars, food, technology. Spend at least 15 to 20 minutes reading.

Workout

By working out in the morning you’ll get a boost of energy putting you in a better mood to tackle the day ahead. Doing this overtime will build self-discipline as some people find it hard to get up in the morning. I also find that you get much better sleep at the end of the day by working out in the morning. Let’s not forget that overtime you’ll reach your fitness goals. There is a reason why you should read before a workout; this because some studies have found that you retain more information working out after reading.

Cold shower

After that workout, it time to hit the showers (a cold shower that is). After you’re all cleaned up before stepping out of the shower turn on some cold water for a few minutes. Cold showers are very beneficial for the mind and body. Cold showers ads a shock to your system like something you’ve never felt before. When you first start you may feel as if you’re out of breath, but soon after, you’ll learn that in order to bear this new sensation, you must remain calm. Cold shower also helps you remain calm for the day ahead.

Following this ritual demands a great deal of discipline, but in the end, you’ll be able to accomplish much more. Nothing will seem overwhelming; you’ll be able to take each challenge as the come along.
