How’s your morning like?
Does your morning start with emails and social media? Do you start by reacting to other people? Your kids, your employees, or your spouse?
If yes, then you need to change this.
Wake up one or two hours earlier than you usually do. Doing so allows you to create time for yourself.
Let’s say you wake up at 7 a.m. You check your email and social media until 7:15 a.m. You then start rushing around the house as you try to make breakfast and prepare the kids for school. After the kids leave for school, you’re off to work.
No time for yourself.
Now let’s say you wake up at 6 a.m.. Don’t touch your phone until 7 a.m.
Spend the extra one hour doing some light exercises, meditating, and planning your day.
Renowned author, Robin Sharma, calls this extra hour the HOLY HOUR.
He explains that you should spend the first twenty minutes of the day exercising. Then spend the next twenty minutes reviewing your goals and planning your day. Your final twenty minutes should be spent reading or listening to an audiobook to make sure your better than you were yesterday.
At 7 a.m., you can get back to your routine. Having had one hour to yourself.
