We all want success, so what’s stopping us? One little change could make all the difference: the time you wake up. There’s an old phrase that has a lot of truth to it: “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man wealthy, healthy, and wise.” It makes sense, right? Because the earlier you get up in the morning, the better chance you have of getting your day in order. That means squeezing in a workout, making a to-do list, and eating a healthy breakfast all before you even step into the office.

But there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. Starting your day with a work out, a to-do list, and a decent breakfast leads to a lot of benefits. For example, you’ll start off your day healthier, happier, and less stressed. There’s a chance you’ll enter the office with a more focused mind, which will lead to an even more productive morning. Do you see where this is going?

A morning routine can really can impact your entire day. A healthy breakfast can lead to a healthy lunch. A productive morning can snowball into an entire productive day. A week of workouts can kickstart a whole month of exercise. Suddenly, we’re talking about a life-changing impact. Sound crazy? It’s not really. It’s pretty simple. Try it for a week and see how you feel.

If you need motivation, ask your partner or a friend to join you. You’ll be more likely to wake up early and hit the gym if someone is waiting there for you. Even simply announcing to family or friends that you plan to get up earlier can be a great motivator. It’s all in your hands… try setting the clock on your smartphone a couple hours earlier than usual right now and be sure to factor that into your bedtime tonight. You can do this!
