Three bedroom-based morning routines that could set you up for success
Sometimes achieving the things we want in life is hard. Often, we can feel as if we are continually fighting our bodies and mind, trying to get them t o do what we want them to do. To set you up for success, here are three morning rituals that you could do each day before you leave the bedroom.
Make Your Bed
It sounds obvious and simplistic, but making your bed is one of the most powerful things that you can do to set yourself up for the rest of the day. Researchers still aren’t quite sure why it’s so effective. But they think that it has a purifying effect on the mind. Once the bed is made, the bedroom is tidy and sleep is in the past. You’re setting yourself up for a day of work, whether at home or the office.
Create An Outfit Strategy
Take a moment to think about the sheer amount of time you spend thinking about which outfit to wear before you go to work.
Well, if that sounds like you, then you might need an outfit strategy. Instead of asking yourself what you’re going to wear in the morning, you have a plan that dictates your precise outfit. So, for instance, your five-day plan might spell out your outfit for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and so on.
If you’re worried about people catching into the pattern, you can operate a 6-day rotation. So, you wear different outfits from Monday to the following Monday and then start wearing the first Monday’s outfit on the following Tuesday and so on. If you need more space for all your clothes, and if you can try investing in 4 door wardrobes. Extra room means more options!
When you look into the morning routines of many of the world’s most successful people, you often find that they spend a lot of time meditating.
Why meditate? Well, research shows that it helps to centre the mind. It also allows you to cope with the challenges of the day better. People who meditate can enter a different type of brain state that makes them more productive.
Meditation isn’t just sitting still, saying “om” over and over again. It’s all about observing your thoughts as they come into your mind and then letting them go, like leaves on the wind.
So which of these morning routines will you be trying for success before you leave the bedroom?
