What can I do every morning before I get up from bed that will yield positive long term results?

Meditate for 10 minutes.

What are the benefits?

  • Meditating early in the day can clean your brain of any cluttered thoughts and prepare it for the day ahead.
  • It can improve your focus and concentration for the work you will do that day.
  • It can help you view your thoughts from a distance, which in turn helps you manage them better.
  • It can improve your mood by giving you a greater sense of calm, enabling you to feel more relaxed and positive about your life.

Where do you start?

  • Download an app called Headspace which will help you meditate on your own.
  • The app is a guided meditation that starts with 1o minutes, and it advances to 15 and 20 minute sessions if you wish to increase the time you meditate (or if you want to do a longer session later in the day).
  • Headspace is super easy and fun to use! It’s a great option if you’re an absolute beginner, because it will show you that this practice is something you can do on a daily basis to improve the quality of your life.
