3 Ways To Get Your Day Off To A Great Start


Ever heard the phrase, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”?

Sometimes, if you want something in your life to change, you have to be willing to tweak your daily routine. And you might be surprised by just how impactful a few small changes can be!

So, before we get to our good morning quotes, we’d like to offer a few early morning life hacks to streamline your routine and boost your productivity.

1. Wake Up At The Same Time

One of the reasons it’s so difficult for some people to wake up early in the morning is because their circadian rhythm is out of whack. The circadian rhythm is the physiological process that contributes to brain wave fluctuations, hormones, and sleep regulation.

Aim to wake up at the same time each and every morning, regardless of what you’ve got going on that day. It may take a week or two for your body to adjust, but soon enough, you’ll find those early mornings aren’t half as bad as they used to be.

2. Brew Some Brain Tea

Jim Kwik, Author of Mindvalley’s Superbrain Program, swears by this one.

Where most folks reach for a cup of coffee, Jim brews up a special blend of three important ingredients: gotu kola, ginkgo biloba, and lion’s mane. He calls its brain tea, and for good reason. It’s quite the neuron-boosting blend.

Gotu kola has been used for many years in Ayurvedic medicine to combat anxiety and increase focus. Ginkgo biloba is a powerhouse antioxidant and has been shown to increase cognitive performance. And lion’s mane, an edible mushroom, is used to boost the immune system and promote neuroplasticity.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a good ol’ cup of coffee. But if you really want to get your juices flowing, keep an eye out for the ingredients in Jim Kwik’s brain tea.

3. Do Some Deep Breathing

Oxygen is good for the body and brain, and this especially holds true first thing in the morning.

Our brains are calorically expensive to maintain. They need of a lot of fuel — and this includes oxygen. In fact, our brain’s consume a staggering 20% of our oxygen intake.

Before you get out of bed, take three deep, cleansing breaths. If you feel up for it, take a few minutes to stretch.

As the body moves, your brain grooves

— Jim Kwik, Author of Mindvalley’s Superbrain Program

So, take a breath. Stretch. And let your brain and body wake up in together for a fresh start to your morning.
