Are you one of those people who jump out of bed at the last-minute, rush to get ready, and then you’re out the door to a busy day of work? What effects does operating this way have on your life (Have you even thought about this)? Do you ever feel like you’re missing something and if you just slowed down a bit you just might find it?
For as long as I can remember, I would sleep till the last-minute, hurry up and get ready, and then run out the door on my way to where I needed to be. I would forget things, spill all over my shirt, run into something, the list goes on – you know what I’m talking about.
I did this for years (you might be living this way) until I realized that there was a better way to start off my day and the results were totally worth it!
Here is how I start off my day:
1. Pray and mediate: I Thank God for my faith, my family, my friends, and all the wonderful things he has blessed me with. I ask him for wisdom, understanding, and a servant heart.
2. Love: I tell my wife how much I love her and how blessed I am to spend the rest of my life with her.
3. Exercise: I take care of my health so that I can live a long life filled with great experiences. Each morning, I will either run, cycle, stretch or lift weights.
4. Eat: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and if you miss it you will feel it. For me, I try to eat a healthy breakfast that can give me the energy I need to get through my day.
How are you starting off your day?
