How to Start Your Day With the Hour of Power and Become More Productive and Motivated

I call this my hour of power. Every morning I wake up and I spend 60 minutes doing three things. They’ve helped contribute to a lot of my success.

So what is this Hour of Power exactly?

It’s a full hour that is broken up into three 20-minute sessions:

  • 20 minutes of exercise
  • 20 minutes of meditation
  • 20 minutes of reading (positive, uplifting material)

The benefits of doing just these 3 things are great.

The Benefits of the Hour of Power

1. Exercise

Simply by meditating you’ll make better decisions, have better mental health, energy, and focus. Reading something positive every day ensures that you are always learning and growing, along with increasing your focus. Exercise, even if you are taking a walk or stretching for 20 minutes will make a huge difference in your overall health and longevity.

You can switch the order of the 3 activities and you can also choose what hour of the day you’d like to reserve for your personal Hour of Power. I usually schedule my Hour of Power for the first hour I’m awake in the morning.  This really jumpstarts my day and allows me to feel energized, focused, and engaged.

And each day, I change my routine a tiny bit….One day I might exercise by taking a 20-minute walk around my neighborhood. The next day I might jog on the treadmill. Whatever type of exercise you choose to do is fine; what’s most important is that you commit to doing it!

2. Meditation

The same goes for the meditation portion of the hour.  There are so many amazing meditation resources out there for everyone.  I’ve created a free e-book on a 4step meditation technique that is perfect for beginners. The most important thing is to find one that you feel connected to and spend 20 minutes really grounding yourself.

And remember, you don’t need to be in a remote cave in India to meditate, although that would be pretty cool!.  You can meditate almost anywhere….in your home, at a park, at the beach or a lake.

Again, go with your internal guidance and find a place that you feel calm and present in, and use those 20 minutes to feed your mind, body, and soul.

3. Reading

And last but not least, the third portion of your Hour of Power is 20 minutes of reading.  Get your hands on positive, uplifting material – it could be from an online magazine, a book, journals or articles.

But again, find something that excites you and that you’ll look forward to reading.  By reading positive material, your subconscious will become emerged in the affirmative, which helps you to remain in that positive state throughout the day.

I want to leave you with some homework after reading this . I’d suggest test-driving the Hour of Power for 30 days. After 30 days, see what worked well and what didn’t. Try moving your hour to different times of the day.  Did having your Hour of Power in the morning work better for you than having it at night? Please share your observations it will help us to improve ourselves and time.

Remember, you can always change the terms of your hour. It is YOUR Hour of Power.

But have fun with it.  And know that it’s extremely effective in centering you, uplifting you, and helping you create a powerful, positive day.

Please share your views or belief on this principle.
