Have you ever wondered what highly successful people do on Monday mornings? Success is not created by luck, but by working hard toward reaching a specific goal.
They Meditate – Start With Just 5 Minutes
Monday morning meditation or prayer are great tools to envision success. It’s important to quiet the mind and let the positive energy in as soon as you wake up. If you start with meditating for 5 minutes and over time increase it to half an hour per session. Such practices can also answer unanswered questions and lead the way to success.
Oprah meditates two times per day for 20 minutes, and she states, “I walked away feeling fuller than when I’d come in. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is — still — the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.”
Concentrating on silence and your heart beat is one way to do a meditation.
They Fuel Their Body – Food Is Energy
It’s imperative that your body is fuelled with nutritious foods first thing in the morning. Healthy food provides energy and gets the mind and body ready for the day. Apparently Richard Branson eats a fruit salad and muesli (a mix of rolled oats, fruits, nuts, seeds, and milk) in the morning to help get the brain focussed.
Some ideas for a healthy breakfast:
- 1 egg, 2 servings of egg whites, orange juice and a flax seed bread toast
- Protein smoothie/shake
- Fruit and greek yogurt parfait
- Peanut butter and banana sandwich
- Quinoa and fruit bowl
- Apple slices dipped in peanut butter
They Get Active – No You Don’t Need A Gym Membership
Highly Successful people know that getting the body active is imperative on Monday mornings and throughout the week. Exercise helps the body wake up and oxygenate; by doing so, all of the cells become active and ready for the day. Exercise is known not only to positively affect the physical body, but it also to keep the mind sharp.
