Richard Branson’s Morning Routine in 2 Minutes

5 Habits you can adopt to win the day and stop procrastinating by Ishan @seefromthesky on Unsplash

Having a morning routine can help as you prepare for the unexpected. With Richard Branson’s busy schedule running multiple businesses, one word sums up how he gets all of this done. That one word is consistency. Between his meetings and running his businesses, Richard can work out two to three times a day. These five-morning routines can help you win the day.

1. Wake up before the sun rises

Richard Branson wakes up early before the sun rises. The Journal of General Psychology found that early rises generally procrastinate less than night owls. Even if you don’t wake up at 4 am, getting your day started before other people in your house gives you more quiet time without catering to the needs of others.

If you’re not a morning person, gradually go to sleep 15 minutes earlier each week until your body adjusts to the change. Over time, your body will adapt, and you’ll change from a night owl to a morning person.

2. Banish the snooze button

Hitting the snooze button for an extra five or 10 minutes doesn’t help. To get a good night’s sleep, you need 90 minutes. So snoozing for a few minutes is not helping. As you rise in the morning, you’ll be ready to tackle the day.

3. Get into a positive mindset.

Set the tone for your day since outside factors can easily distract your routine and ruin your day. A few ways to do this is by practicing gratitude, meditating, and journaling. Another tip is to practice self-affirmations. These routines help you have a better day overall.

4. Exercise and eat a real breakfast

Exercising right when you start your day helps you feel better overall and ready to start the day. It is too easy to miss a workout later in the day due to a busy schedule.

Richard Branson actually works out three times a day, once in the morning and evening, and then play a physical sport during the day.

5. Schedule your to-do list

Having a morning routine is helpful but not always needed. The key is to focus on what you really need to get done each day. There are probably half a dozen to a dozen things you need to do.

You need to focus on what you really must accomplish for your overall goal. This may be one or two things you need to get done. Focus on getting those one or two things done each day.

Do you use any of these as in your morning routine?
