You may have that one person at work that is always ready to greet the day, ahead on their schedule and cheerful throughout the day. Have you ever wondered where they get their boundless energy? Their morning routine just might have something to do with it.
Some of the most productive and successful people on earth implement healthy elements into their morning routines. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to meet a successful entrepreneur or ultra-productive CEO that doesn’t make time for a healthy morning.
A great example of this is one of the most successful people in the world — Oprah Winfrey. She starts every day with a 20-minute meditation (a bit less time if she’s extra busy that day). Meditation has been shown to boost endorphins and activate the parasympathetic nervous system. If Oprah can make time for meditation in the morning, everyone should be able to!
Another person who takes time for themselves in the AM is Arianna Huffington. The media mogul skips breakfast and has a bulletproof coffee instead. While bulletproof coffee is incredibly popular with Silicon Valley techies right now, studies show that drinking any kind of coffee has numerous benefits. These include a reduced risk of cancer and a lower risk of diabetes.
Love her or hate her, you can’t argue that Kim Kardashian is ultra-successful. She starts every single day with a workout. While this obviously helps her keep her famous figure, it also gives her the energy to tackle her many projects and business ventures throughout the day.
