6 Morning Habits of Super Successful People Revealed

Ask any entrepreneur, CEO, or inventor, and they’ll tell you that they barely have time to breathe. So how do they cope with their crazy schedules and still manage to take care of their mental and physical health? Many don’t, but the truly successful professionals out there know never to compromise on their health.

So how do they sustain such a high level of success and maintain their sanity, while the rest of us barely have time to do our laundry?

Steal a few tips from them and make your day more productive!

1. Wake up early

Yes, we all know this one. Successful people don’t sleep, right? Not really. They just don’t sleep in. They take advantage of the early hours of the morning to take care of tasks and organize the things they otherwise wouldn’t have time to do during work hours.

2. Eat Breakfast

Break. Fast. You haven’t eaten for more than 6 hours, and your body will need that jumpstart in the morning even though you may not always feel it. Successful people will always make time for breakfast to ensure that they’re at the top of their game both mentally and physically when they start their day.

3. Silence

During your commute to work, or first waking up in the morning, it could be tempting to put on some music or turn on the news to chase away any residual grogginess. But successful people embrace that early morning silence. They take advantage of it to get their thoughts in order and to mentally prepare for the day ahead.

4. Reflection

Self-reflection is key to identifying areas for improvement and to celebrate successes. Write in your journal, reflect on the previous day, do a gratitude page, or just write about anything that pops into your head. Developing this habit of self-reflection will ground you and help you feel more prepared to face the day.

5. Take Care of THAT Task

It sucks to wake up in dread because you know you have to do that thing you really don’t want to do. So get rid of it first thing. Take the biggest, most difficult task of the day and do it before you tackle the rest of your to-do list. The boost you get from getting that off your chest will make the rest of the day a breeze.

6. Exercise

You are never too busy to squeeze in at least thirty minutes of exercise. Successful people will never skip a workout. Healthy body, healthy mind. The endorphin boost and rush of clarity after a workout beats drinking gallons of coffee.
