While there are plenty of things you should implement into your morning routine there are also things you should not do in the morning if you want to live a healthy, happy and productive lifestyle. Today, peak performance expert and coach, Eric Partaker, breaks down 12 things you should not do in the morning. These are life hacks and lessons to not only optimise your mornings but to break bad habits, change your life and reach your full potential.
Stop Hitting The Snooze Button! - Put your alarm clock on the other side of the room, out of arm's reach so that you have no choice but to get out of bed to turn it off.
Five Second Rule - The moment you have the urge to do something you know you should do, give yourself 5 seconds to take action before your brain will try to convince you otherwise.
Put Your Phone Down - Stop using your phone as your alarm clock. Get an old school alarm clock and shut off your phone when you go to bed. This will help avoid temptation when you wake up to grab and start scrolling.
Stop Winging It - Make a plan for your day. Spend five minutes in the morning, seeing what meetings you have, when and where do you need to be? Look at the free space and decide how best you could use that? How could you further your goals?
A Clean Home Is A Happy Home - Ensure you have enough time scheduled into your day to clean up after yourself. Those simple acts of cleanliness will help promote a sense of discipline. It will increase structure and help improve your day.
Time To Hydrate - Begin every morning with two large glasses of water. Replenish the liquids in your body and give your day a well hydrated start.
Do You Make Your Bed? - The simple act of making your bed every single morning helps foster a sense of discipline and structure in your life so that you can get your day off to a good start.
The Best Investment You Can Make Is In Yourself! - Make time to read, study or learn at the beginning of your day. Take at least 5 minutes to visualize your day ahead. Decide how you will show up today with excellence.
