So, what did we learn?

  • Add some kind of mindfulness practice like meditation into your morning routine — it will help you train your mind and emotions for the challenges to come.
  • Determine what kind of exercise is right for you and schedule it to keep your routine interesting.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast so that you have more energy and a stronger ability to focus throughout the day.
  • Have a “to-do” ready to conquer. Prioritize your day’s task list to make sure you tackle the most pressing things first and make your day productive.
  • Be your biggest motivator (and critic). Say something good to yourself in the morning. Put time and effort into building self-confidence. Start reading books on entrepreneurship. Management, self-improvement, and modern work culture.
  • Stay unplugged from tech during sleep hours. Also, checking your smartphone for messages or work email shouldn’t be the first thing you do when you wake up.
