Meditate

Learn from the Queen of Daytime Talk shows herself, Oprah Winfrey, and start your day with a few minutes of meditation. Meditation brings Miss Winfrey “hope, a sense of contentment and deep joy.” Not only that, according to Healthline, taking a few minutes a day to ruminate also brings positive improvements in one’s health such as decreased blood pressure, better stress and anxiety management, and lengthens the attention span.

Set Your Intentions

Do you want to know how Ariana Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post, thrives in a male-dominated world? She gets her 8 hours of sleep. The minute she wakes up, Ariana Huffington takes a moment to herself and sets her intentions for the day. Having your goals, whether spiritual or functional, set at the beginning of the day creates a productive mindset, a mark of a true go-getter.

Have a Hot Beverage

Pinkies up! Queen in her own right e Marie Kondo, founder of the KonMari method, and the actual Queen of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II, start their day with a hot beverage–warm water, earl grey for Queen Elizabeth. It may not have any scientific benefits (that we’re aware of) but, a relaxing, warm drink in the morning slowly eases you into your full potential. Why not take this time to list things you’re thankful for? If tea is not your (ehem) cup of tea, try a classic cup with a side of antioxidants like Royale’s Coffee Blend and Choco All 8.
