Successful People are Morning People

by Jul 17, 2017

Ever wish you were a morning person? Maybe you should strive to become one– according to Dr Travis Bradberry “research shows that early risers are more proactive than night owls, they’re more agreeable and conscientious, and they’re happier than people who sleep in.” I can honestly say I feel more productive and accomplished when I start my day bright and early, and I’m sure many others can attest to similar experiences. In his article “8 Things Ridiculously Successful People Do Before 8 AM” Bradberry suggests eight behaviors and habits one can establish to best utilize the early morning hours and start each day off on the most successful note possible.

Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Disconnect. When you just wake up from blissful slumber to piles of notifications demanding attention, your morning suddenly becomes about responding to the wants and needs of other people– all before you’ve even climbed out of bed! Rather than responding to notifications right after waking up, take a few moments set a calm mental tone and start the day off right.
  • Set goals for the day. Taking the time to plan out exactly what you wish to accomplish will help your brain keep track of it and will also act as a visual reminder to continue working toward that specific end-goal– despite all the day’s distractions.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast. We’ve all heard this one time and time again– that’s because it truly makes a difference! Eating a healthy breakfast “gives you energy, improves your short-term memory, and helps you to concentrate more intensely and for longer periods.”
