7 MORNING HABITS OF SUCCESSFUL WOMEN
#Morninghabit1 — RISE EARLY:
“One key to success is to have lunch at the time of the day most people have breakfast,” said Robert Brault.
A majority of successful women you see are early risers.
Not only has science time and again proved the perks of waking up early but it’s rewarding in many, many ways.
To make waking up early easier, you want to hit the bed sooner.
Besides starting your day on a positive note, getting enough shut-eye improves –productivity, work rate, concentration, memory; decision-making, and problem-solving skills.

Waking up even an hour early keeps you healthy by allowing you time to squeeze in some exercise; prepare and have a good breakfast; which boosts immunity, regulates weight, and keeps you energized throughout the day.
It offers more hours for your work — to plan and prepare for your day ahead; get your essential tasks done.
#Morninghabit2 — GRATITUDE JOURNAL:

It’s no surprise that practicing gratitude is beneficial for your body and soul.
Many studies have shown that the simplest practice of making a gratitude list, meaning — counting, or jotting down your blessings, significantly influences your well-being.
The easiest way to exercise this is by maintaining a gratitude journal. A journal can help you keep everything in place.
To make it more simple you can allot time; say 5 or 10 minutes daily or as your schedule allows.
I keep it flexible, like, I go into writing details on a relaxing day or if I have more thoughts.
While I just meditate and thank God for the most important people and things in my life when pushed for time.
You’ve got to find a method that works for you as there’s no one size fits all answer.
Each day, taking a few moments to draw attention to people and things you’re grateful for, helps to cultivate a positive attitude; builds self-regard; makes you optimistic.
Practicing gratitude brings the feeling of abundance, therefore, reducing materialism, social comparisons, or doing wrong to others.
It is a great way to transition into being a cheerful person that everyone would love to be around.
How wonderful is that?
#Morninghabit3 — BREATHE/SPEND TIME IN SOLITUDE:
Spending alone time at the window at the crack of dawn is time well-spent for me. Additionally, it’s a cherry on the top moment, if it is raining.
Letting go of all the worries and being still and present in the moment; experiencing the glory of the morning to every bit of it. And letting the morning swish its magical wand to transform my day into a happy, productive, creative, and energized one is what I count on every morning.
I have purely simplified my life but if you’re a busy bee and gathered with kids and a lot of people, a lot of time, you want a well-deserved break to nurture your soul.
Solitude is beyond everything.
#Morninghabit4 — EAT HEALTHY BREAKFAST:
Breakfast — indeed means breaking the overnight fast. Hence, it is important to fuel your body in the correct way.
What you feed your body at the beginning of your day can set the tone for the entire day.
But this main meal most commonly seems to be slipping off your priority list due to demanding mommy duties.
By eating a healthy and fulfilling breakfast you’ll be able to think clearly, make better decisions, and have the energy to choose something healthier for dinner.
But if your first meal of the day is unhealthy, you are more likely to pick poor meal options later in the day because your brain would not have enough glucose levels to allow you to think clearly. You might experience hunger pangs. And you would only want to serve your hunger without giving much thought to nutrition.
Successful women value their health. They plan and fix up nutritious breakfast.
They know they need proper nutrition to fuel their body and mind in order to pursue their passion.
If you could prep up a lit bit beforehand and eat something nutritious, you’re going to do a whole lot better in terms of feeling vitalized and having more strength all day long.

#Morninghabit5 — EXERCISE:
Successful women are long known for regular workout routines. Because they appreciate their health.
Running, weight lifting, playing a sport, getting in thousands of steps a day, or performing a good cardio session at home.
Nothing specific. Just a chunk of time is dedicated to exercising.
While there’s no specific answer to the “what’s the right time to exercise” question — mornings always turn out to be the better time for exercise.
- Getting up a little earlier than your kids you can focus and enjoy your exercise, as morning time is distraction-free — you’re less likely to get notified, called, or sidetracked.
- You’ll have more energy and be in a better mood to do some serious exercise moves.
- Thirdly, the tried and true reason is, evening workouts, mainly rigorous activities can disrupt your sleep; whereas morning exercise can help you improve sleep quality by promoting rich and sound sleep patterns.
#Morninghabit6 — READ:
Want to be that smart lady in a group of colleagues or friends who can hold on to any conversation, or indeed add more knowledge or facts to it, and make it more interesting? Then you want to develop the life-changing habit of reading.
Reading is an exercise for the brain.
Successful women habitually read because they want to strengthen their thinking and decision-making process along with being stress-free and creative.
Reading, besides, improving your memory, attention, focus, and concentration refines vocabulary and makes you appear more confident and professional.
You can benefit from reading fiction too. As it helps boost creativity, strengthen relationships, and make you receptive to new ideas.
So, be sure to embrace some reading time to enjoy the impressive rewards.
#Morninghabit7 — VISUALIZE:
Visualization plus discipline are the most powerful ways to achieve the biggest goals in life.
It is something we do every.
The activities you’re going to perform when scheduling your day, outlining a business plan, the ways you’re going to have fun on your trip, etc are examples of visualization.
Visualization is an effective technique that creative professionals and sportsmen use to enhance their performance. I have seen Indian former International cricketer Sachin Tendulkar guiding fellow cricketers to visualize, many a time.
Visualizing is a method of picturing or envisioning your life the way you want it.
You want to be a successful singer — imagine yourself practicing daily, performing at grand concerts with ease and comfort. Along with your physical or vocal training, if you practice visualization, in all likelihood you’re soon going to achieve it.
Even if you’re a stay-at-home mama you need this kind of technique to thrive in life. In addition to your daily routines, mentally visualizing how you want to spend your day can be super effective. Calm, productive, relaxing, energetic?
You’ll love it, girls! I promise.
As they say, your habits decide your future. Building positive morning habits will set you up for success and prosperity.
So, time to up your game.
