5 Things entrepreneurs should do before 8am
A morning routine is important for everyone, especially entrepreneurs. This ensures you get your day off to a good start. A regular routine will help you to feel motivated, focused and productive for the rest of the day. Early in the morning is the best time to get in the right frame of mind to achieve success.
To get your day started well, here are 5 things entrepreneurs should do before 8am everyday:
Starting your day with 30 minutes of exercise will get your body and mind moving. If you can do a short workout or a walk every day, this will quickly tally up and fulfil the recommended 150 minutes per week of exercise for adults. Furthermore, in doing so, your brain and kidneys will be rewarded with dopamine, making you feel cheerful and therefore more dynamic.
Take a cold shower
This one might not be for everyone, but it should be. A cold shower first thing in the morning has been known to provide so many health benefits. Cold-water immersion (head included) will shock your body and help all your bodily systems – immune, digestive, circulatory and lymphatic get in awe-inspiring working order. In the mental sphere, cold showers increase alertness and eases stress, which is exactly why everyone should start their day with a cold shower.
Eat a healthy breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal as it provides the fuel for your mind, body and soul to get you through the day. Be sure to eat a nutritionist breakfast – no donuts or cereal loaded with sugar. Instead go for nice warm oatmeal with honey, eggs with avocado on toast, or fresh fruit and yoghurt. A healthy breakfast will give your drive a boost, and will improve your concentration and memory.
Plan your day
Structure your plans for the day. Don’t just wake up and wonder aimlessly. Visualise your goals and prioritise your tasks -starting with the hardest, and set suitable time frames for each one. List them by importance and deadline. Focus on things that must be done first thing. If there’s tasks you’ve been procrastinating about, get them done foremost. This will enable you to enjoy the rest of the day.
Mindfulness means – being completely present. Having your thoughts and focus on what you’re doing then and there. Being present isn’t always easy as minds seem to drift off and people start thinking of something else. The practice of being in the moment is useful for an entrepreneur as it helps to – ward off feelings of worry, improves your focus, creativity, productivity and overall well-being. It will assist you to slow down and appreciate life to the fullest. This is not something you just do in the morning. You should start as soon as you wake up and carry on throughout the day.
By having a regular morning routine, you will be developing good habits to help you stay vigorous, content and creative in both your personal and business life. It might take a while of experimenting with different routines to find your ideal one. Continue this routine for 21 days without missing a day, to get into the habit. After completing these 5 things, you’ll feel ready to take on the world.
