Morning Routines

routine, planning, to-do-list

    A common term found in recent book that I have been reading is the one talking about “Morning Rutines” and what top perfomer athletes, and successful people do on their regular mornings. On my research about the science and psychology behind this common practice for entrepreneurs and more ordinary people in general I found that Morning Routines or Morning Rituals,  is a great way for the mind to start the day by doing things that fill it with a sense of purpose and satisfaction, by doing a task or activity regularly the mind does not have to work to decide what to do, or worry about starting the day, it simply enjoys by allowing the routines to start the day while it gets on focus, to later execute on important decisions, and take full control of the day by making problem solving, problem finding and other daily mind exhausting thinking processes.

So by simply having a morning routine you enable you mind to sit back and enjoy seeing you perform activities where it does not have to do a lot of thinking, it is refreshing, gets you pumped in the morning and ready to perform better for the whole upcoming day!

Why not share your day to day routines and see what ideas can we get from others!

Personally, I start my day by drinking water, stretching my body for a couple of minutes to get my blood running and then take a look at my top 3 priorities for the day, then I start Pandora on my computer and play some music to start my day! What d you do first thing in the morning?

2015 Goals


It’s been almost a month of the new year and to help me accomplish my goals of the year I decided to let friends and people know what they are so I feel more motivated to accomplish every single one of them.

In no special order or purpose here they are:A

-Run 3 times/week: At least 1 mile every time, so far I’ve been running between 2-3 miles three times a week and so far I feel very happy I’m following up with such (hopefully by now) new habit.

-Morning Ritual: It sounds weird at first, but I have found out that many successful people have their own morning routine or ritual to help them prepare for the day, listening to Lewis Howes, Anthony Robbins and other great people I took this tip and I’m starting to apply it every single morning, where I think of what I’m grateful for, I visualize the day, think of ways to serve others, I do breathing exercises and do basic stretching to get my body moving and my blood running.

-Read at least 1 Book per month: It might sound super easy for those who are natural readers and can eat a book for breakfast but on my own life and personal habits reading a book it’s not really on my top priorities. Of course with this goal I’m trying to change this since there’s so many great book I wish to read, and some that I have started but never finished for numerous excuses but not this year of course.

-Save Money: Saving and Investing money is one of my goals this year, more than anything being consistent and form a habit to know where my money goes and try to allocate it the best I can. Of course with this goal I also need to keep researching the markets since I plan on buying stocks and open a new account in a different bank just to have my saving money there and not feel tempted to spend what is available on my checking account.

-Plan each month: To have a basic plan of things and habits I want to continue doing, days off and other activities I want to accomplish.

Those are some of my principal goals, I think I will be learning as the weeks go by and find out the best way to make everything work, there are also another activities which I would need to do in order to keep up with such goals that I might later add to the list.

At the end of the month or beginning of the next one, I will check how am I doing so far to keep track of my goals and have an amazing year.

Time do Dominate the day!
