Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Morning Rituals for Success

Cohorted Cult, Morning Rituals for Success

”The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine” – Mike Murdock

What does success mean to you? It all resonates differently to us all so your definition of success to everyone else’s definition of success is probably not at all the same. Your version of success to you is the most important so aim for your own greatness daily.

We all have 24 hours in a day but how you want to spend that time is entirely up to you, undoubtedly we all want to reach our full potential otherwise you wouldn’t be here reading this…

Here are some of the best morning rituals for you to do reach maximum levels of productivity and motivation on a day to day basis…this is something for everyone to so there’s NO excuses. It might seem like a lot but if you organise yourself well you can do this all in less than 90 minutes, consider these as power hours. 

Wake Up Earlier 

Let’s start with the key ritual – Wake up earlier than what you do already (2 hours is perfect)  Giving yourself some power hours in the AM is a game changer, Rushing in the morning often has a ripple effect throughout your day which can be stressful and distracting.

Don’t pick up your phone first thing in the AM

This is an increasingly bad habit for us all. Turn off your alarm, put the phone down and crack on with your morning. Don’t be distracted by what’s happening on your phone (especially social media) it can all wait. We’re not able to control what we see by looking through our phones, it’s important to be in control of our thoughts and emotions.

Write down your to-do list for the day

In the morning have a pad and pen at the ready by your bed when you wake up first thing, write down everything you need to do for that day and try to prioritise the important things first, set your biggest intention for the day too.

Make your bed

Just make it. Keep your room tidy because you’ll be thankful coming back to it in the evening…Tidy room, tidy mind – you know how it is.

Meditate 

You can take as long as long as you want meditating, but 5-10 minutes is perfect to start the day.
Sit up straight in a silent space
Close your eyes and scan through your body and see how you’re feeling
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth
Stay focused but allow your mind to wander when it wants to, draw your attention back

Work Out & Eat Breakfast

Not everyone works out daily or sometimes even at all but getting at least 30 minutes of exercise in everyday is great for your physical and mental health. There are many benefits of getting it done first thing but that’s completely down to you (try make it a habit) Get them endorphins going!

Eating a well-balanced nutritional breakfast will set you up for the day ahead so make sure you give yourself enough time to include this in your morning routine.

Listen to a Motivational Podcast or Listen to Your Favourite Playlist 

Get your favourite playlist on whilst you’re getting ready for your day or put on a podcast of your choice whilst you’re on your commute. Filling in these ‘gaps’ with something uplifting/inspiring and informative is beneficial for your concentration, mood and imagination.

Final thoughts?

Give yourself enough time in the morning to complete these rituals and take your time to enjoy the start of your day. Become familiar with each pointer and take your time to perfect each one – there’s no rush. Get one right and implement another and keep going until you can fit them all into your morning power hours.
