A typical morning for most adults is incredibly hectic and often passes in the blink of an eye. You jump out of bed, dash around fixing breakfast, packing lunch, getting kids ready for school and then rush out the door off to work. But it doesn’t have to be like that — you can totally end this bustle if you choose. The key lies in rethinking your mornings, and using them to your advantage by doing things that matter the most to you.
While many people put themselves through haste and cramble every morning, the most successful people, on the other hand, use their early-morning hours to accomplish their highest-value activities. Early mornings are the best times to focus on things that are most important to you because your willpower is renewed after a good night of rest. We all want more time to do the things we care about — reading, working out, spending time on meditation or spiritual growth, working on a new project, or having quality time with our family — and all these activities require willpower and discipline. Working on these goals late in the day can feel like a slog since our willpower is largely drained fulfilling the routine demands. That’s why, developing a habit of working on them early on is key to set ourselves up for success.
