These Secrets Will Make you Reinvent your Morning

This week on Monday Motivation we'll discuss a technique that helps make every day great!

If you're anything like me you hit the snooze button 3 times before rolling out of bed. Just to hop onto the computer and complete that endless to-do list. Before you know it, 5 hours have passed and you have nothing to show for it besides more things on the to-do list. In today's society distraction are a constant. Early on as a blogger I wasted a lot of time on unproductive distractions (i.e. social media, television, eating/snacking, the internet, email, etc.). I would love to say I had an epiphany and created a solution based on my experience but that is not the case.

In the past, I've (Read: How to Relieve Stress in 10 Minutes) discussed how much I enjoy reading about other entrepreneurs and their experiences. Reading, watching, or listening to others in your field is the best way to learn there is always a nugget of motivation, inspiration, or lesson you can learn. I found an astounding trend among several of the entrepreneurs I recently read about, they all consistently took a moment every morning to just clear their mind before beginning their day. One of my favorites was an Erica Nicole interview #HerStory, she actually coined the "Clarity Moment" phrase.



A clarity moment is an amazing way to start your day. Your clarity moment can vary based on what your needs are. The goal of the clarity moment is that you leave it feeling motivated and prepared to start the day. Personally, I wake up early (almost) every day to clear my thoughts, refocus on the big picture, and pray. Clarity moments allow you to re-energize and take time for yourself.

5 Steps to Clarity Moment

  1. Be prepared (Read: 8 Ways to be More Productive)
  2. Make a strong to do list (prior to your day off)
  3. Set aside 10-15 minute (uninterrupted) for yourself
  4. Meditate (Pray, Yoga, Stretching, etc.)
  5. Start Your Day/To-Do List
If you are truly struggling and want to change your life. The Miracle Morning is simple, to the point, inspirational, and thought-provoking. I'm looking forward to reading my copy again.

  1. This is really great advice. I find myself getting so distracted while I'm trying to do a task that I end up with a thousand browser tabs open and nothing gets done. I will have to try this method. Thanks!

  2. I completely agree with setting some time to yourself in the morning! I enjoy my 15-20 minutes in the morning before the first kid wakes up!

  3. I'm lost without a To-Do list and totally agree that one is necessary to make the most of your day. I'm guilty of not setting time aside for myself- to meditate or work on physical fitness and it's so important to care for yourself!!

  4. I'm definitely going to give this a try. I was just reading about how being too busy kills creativity! Creativity is central to all my passions, but I am so busy! This looks like a good start to giving my mind rest. <3

  9. I agree with the list most especially with clearing of the mind. I needed that to declutter everything and of course, pray/meditate.
