Last week I wrote a post about defining success through balance. Below I am going to write about two things I have been doing first thing in the morning. Rather than waking up, rolling over and start checking e-mails, texts and messages from all social media outlets. I’ve been keeping my phone on “Do Not Disturb” until I have my beginning of my morning routine done. This allows me time to get ready for the day, rather than racing around to get out of the door. 

  1. RomWOD: I mention this because it is an outlet that most have heard of by now. I take 20 minutes first thing in the morning to stretch and relax before anything else. This gives me time to adjust my thoughts and get my head straight, while I am figuring out my day. It doesn’t have to be RomWOD, simply taking some time in the morning to move around before you do anything else will suffice just as well.
  2. Headspace App: After about 20 minutes of light stretching and moving, I get in about 10 minutes of breathing and meditation through the Headspace app (recommended to me by Gregory Jaworowski). The Tim Ferris show just did an episode on linking habits and traits of successful people together. The one habit that they all had in common is that they have some sort of meditation practice. 

Here are just two things I have been doing, I hope they help you find balance and help you slow down your day just a little bit. Taking an extra 30 minutes in the morning can make you much more productive throughout your day.

    The Headspace app is great! Been working for a couple of years on meditation. Good addition to my life. P.S. You can try it for free- 10 sessions. Go get focused and calm!
