Rise and Shine: 5 Things Uber Successful People Do First Thing


Rise and Shine! Morning time simply became your new best buddy.

Love it or despise it, making use of the morning hours prior to work may be the secret to a successful, and healthy, lifestyle. That’s right, early rising is a typical quality discovered in numerous CEOs, government officials, and other influential individuals who have the rise and shine habit.

Margaret Thatcher was up every day at 5 am, Frank Lloyd Wright at 4 am and Robert Iger, the CEO of Disney wakes at 4:30 am simply to name three of them.

I know exactly what you’re thinking –  you do your finest work at night. Not so. According to Inc. Magazine, early morning individuals have been found to be more proactive and more efficient. In addition, the wellness perks for those with a life before work go on and on. Let’s explore 5 of the things successful people do prior to 8 am.

1. Get Your Heart Pumping

I’ve stated it many times before, I’ll state it once again. Most individuals that work out daily, work out in the morning after they rise and shine. Whether it’s a morning yoga session or a journey to the fitness center, working out before work provides you a boost of energy for the day which should give a sense of accomplishment.

Anyone can tackle working online after 200 ab reps! Early morning workouts also get rid of the possibility of flaking out on your cardio after a long day at work.

Even if you aren’t bright eyed and bushy tailed at the thought of a 5 am jog, try waking up 15 minutes early for a quick bedside set of pushups or stretching. It’ll help get up your body, and prep you for your day.

2. Plan Your Day.

Optimize your potential by mapping out your schedule for the day, as well as your objectives and to dos. The morning is an excellent time for this as it is commonly one of the only peaceful times a person gets throughout the day.

Schedule a small window in the evening to prepare a few healthy snacks to eat the next day.

3. Have a Good Brekkie.

All of us know that ‘rush out the door with a cup of coffee and an empty tummy’ sensation. You sit down at your desk, and you’re already questioning the earliest that taco truck sets up outside your workplace. Not good!

Take that extra time in the morning to sustain your body for the jobs ahead of it. It will help keep your mind on what’s at hand and not your growling belly.

Not only is morning meal good for your physical wellness, it is also a great time to connect socially. Even five minutes of talking with your kids or spouse while eating a quick bowl of muesli can increase your spirits prior to going out the door.

4. Positive Thinking

These days we talk about our physical health over and over, but often our mental wellness gets neglected. The morning after you rise and shine is the perfect time to spend some quiet time inside your mind meditating or visualizing.

Even just a minute of visualization and positive thinking can help enhance your state of mind and outlook on the work you need to complete for the day.

5. Greens Before Icecream

We all have that one job on our to do list that we fear. It looms over you all day (or week) till you finally suck it up and do it after much procrastination. This is an easy suggestion to get rid of that tension –  do that least preferable task on your list FIRST.

Rather than anticipating the discomfort of it from first coffee through your lunch break, get it out of the way. The early morning is the time when you are (normally) more well rested and your energy level is up. For that reason, you are more well geared up to deal with more challenging projects.

And take a look at what this means, your day will get considerably simpler, not harder. By the time your work day is ending, you’re finishing up with simpler to dos and going into your personal free time more relieved. Hooray!

Mark Twain was well known as an advocate of the rise and shine early regime.
