Last week you saw how to add thirty 12-hour days to your life. But then what?

To start, know that the most decisive moments of your day are right when you wake and right before you sleep. That means that your morning and evening time is vitally important to your success and well-being, because this is when your mind is most receptive to new programming.

For now we’ll focus on that morning time and how you can set yourself up for success by using MEDITATION to increase your presence, peace, and creativity.

Here’s the simplest way to get started with this powerful practice:

Get in a comfortable position (making sure your spine is straight) and set a timer for 3-5 minutes. Now close your eyes and release any tension in your face with a soft Mona Lisa smile. Then start silently counting. Count on the inhale–1, 2, 3…, and then start over on the exhale–1, 2, 3…. The “game” is to see how many numbers you can reach on the inhale and how many on the exhale, aiming to count at least double the length on the exhale. So if you make it to the number 4 on the inhalation, see if you can hit 8 on the exhalation. Keep at this until you hit numbers that excite you.*

But don’t stop there, of course! Remember: NEW HABIT = NEW REALITY!

And let us know in the comments: Do you already have a preferred meditation time or technique? Share your practice! We need it.

*If you want sustainable success in this or any area of your life, consistency is key. Keep at this even just 3 minutes a day and watch your biz-life happiness skyrocket.
