You’ve heard about morning routines and how powerful they can be for jump starting your day. You might even have your own morning routine, and that’s terrific.
But what I’m about to share with you beats every single morning routine out there.
One note: I said this is the best morning routine for online marketers, and hands down, it is. But it’s also the best morning routine for plumbers, horse trainers, athletes, CEO’s, astronauts and street sweepers.
That’s right – it’s the best morning routine for EVERYBODY.
And get this – it’s actually the morning routine BEFORE your morning routine.
In fact, without this “pre-routine,” your other morning routines are pretty much useless.
Here’s what it is: Sleep in total darkness, with no electronics and no sound for a solid 7-8 hours each night.
As blasé as you might think this advice is, I can tell you from personal experience that it is life-changing.
Many professionals get 6 hours or less of sleep each night. They have to PUSH themselves all day, drink energy drinks and coffee until their hands shake, and then have a drink or two before bed just to try to unwind.
Then the alarm goes off again the next day and they’re tired, groggy, irritable and angry they have to face the day again.
But YOUR LIFE can be way different (and better) than this when you start getting enough sleep.
Here’s a few power sleep tips to get you started on the right track:
Don’t eat anything for the last 3 to 4 hours before bed.
Shut off all electronics and even unplug the Wi-Fi.
Block every bit of light coming into your bedroom. Turn down the thermostat to a comfortably cool level, even a bit chilly.
And go to sleep when your body tells you to – not when your work is done.
Get sleep like this routinely and you’ll start getting twice as much done in half the time when you’re awake. You’ll have MORE leisure time, not less.
You’ll be healthier. You’ll get sick as often, and I bet you’ll also lose those stubborn 10 pounds you couldn’t seem to shake when you were sleep deprived.
You’ll be happier. You’ll have more energy. And you’ll forget all about energy drink (because you won’t need them)!
You’ll think better and more clearly. You’ll have a better memory. You’ll deal with stress better. You’ll be in a better mood and people will like you more.
You’ll like yourself more.
If you’re sleep deprived, building your online business will seem like WORK.
If you’re well rested, you’ll have natural motivation and it will seem like play.
Try it for one week.
It’s the greatest productivity tool, energy enhancer, mind booster and happiness pill all rolled into one.
