Have you ever noticed how the way you start your day can set the tone for the rest of your day? The first 7 minutes after you wake up can be the most critical ones to your success.

During sleep, we pass through several stages, from deep sleep to light and back again. Unfortunately, when we hear our alarm clock go off in the morning, we travel back through the stages very quickly and we wake up feeling a bit disoriented and negative.

That used to happen to me. I noticed that I would say how rotten the day was going to be, how much work wasn’t finished, and so on. And funnily enough, that’s exactly how my day would pan out!

Now, I awaken and consciously spend about 7 minutes positively reinforcing my attitudes and efforts.

Action
– Tomorrow, use your first few minutes to praise your efforts and have a positive inner conversation. See how your day is positively affected!
