5 things wildly successful people do before drinking their morning coffee

How you spend your morning can often predict the type of day you will have.

According to a Business Insider article, successful people approach problems by thinking outside the box to rise above their limitations. The way they approach those problems begins with their morning routines.

Here are five things successful people do before drinking their morning coffee.

1. Disconnect. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said he starts every morning by sending a motivational email to his employees before disconnecting and dedicating his mornings to exercise and family. Diving straight into emails and Facebook just after waking up will make you lose focus throughout the day and succumb to the wants and needs of others, according to the article.

2. Exercise. In as little as 10 minutes, your body releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that calms your brain and helps with impulse control. Exercising daily leaves you feeling more energized and to view life in a positive manner, despite how hard it may be to wake up and go for a short run, according to the article.

3. Meditation. Meditation is becoming increasingly popular among C-suite executives. Why? Research illustrates that mindfulness fights of stress by reversing the fight-or-flight response, improving focus, boosting creativity and increasing your emotional intelligence.

4. Goal setting. According to the article, planning out your day significantly increases your ability to accomplish your goals. Try listing out your goals after meditation for added calm and clarity.

5. Eat a healthy breakfast. While your daily dose of sugary cereal is tempting, a healthy breakfast stabilizes blood-sugar levels while decreasing appetite, increasing energy and improving concentration throughout the day.
