7 Morning Routines Of Successful Business Minds

23 Oct, 2015 | Tags: , ,

We all want to be successful. We want to succeed in our education, in our workplace, in our creativity. But if we are honest with ourselves, we probably hold on to certain habits that aren’t the healthiest for nurturing success. Here are 7 morning habits of some of the best business minds. Maybe, if you start making these your daily early routines as well, you will find more success in your life.

Wake Up Really Early

You knew it would be here… Every successful individual wakes up early in the morning. Unless you already consider yourself an early bird, you’ll need to work your way up to being one; start by waking up thirty minutes earlier than you normally do. Successful individuals typically wake up as early as 4:30 and 5am every morning.

Don’t Check Your Email

Habit says “check your email right now!” But the successful tend to wait on this. Don’t start your day bogged down by emails. Clear your head for yourself first, let business wait for a bit. That way you will approach the demands on your terms as opposed to trying to create your schedule around the directions of others. 

Make The Best Coffee

Many successful individuals meditate, or make coffee, or journal in the early morning. Take time to clear your head. Think about yourself. Think about your family. Think about your life goals. Ask yourself, “what three things must I ABSOLUTELY get accomplished today?”. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, decide that you will only focus on these three things today. 


Staying fit is important for your health, but burning off a few calories early in the morning kick starts your energy. Exercise wakes you up and makes you ready to head right into your day. 

Eat A Healthy Breakfast

They always say breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Successful business minds take the time to eat a healthy breakfast before going into their workday.

Bond With Your Family

It’s early, and successful people know that family time is important. Set aside time in the morning while you’re awake and your mind is clear to speak and bond with your family members. Help your children get ready for school. Clean up after breakfast with your partner. Remember no matter what, family is always the most important.

Plan Your Day

Successful minds don’t walk into the office and try to tackle everything at once. Before you leave your home, consider which tasks you want to complete, and in which order. Always start with the hardest task first. Take on the hardest task and you’ll have the energy to get it done.

Which of these habits do you already use personally? Which do you want to start implementing in your own life right away? And which do you think would be the hardest for you to implement and why?
