As Salaamu Alaykum(May Peace Be upon you) and Good Morning!
I woke up to eat suhoor(meal before fasting in Ramadan) and offered salat(the first of 5 obligatory daily prayers) this morning and felt as if I was missing something. I began to recite Qur’an and noticed that I had not been as productive as I wanted to be so I read more and made more dua(short prayer/supplication) I decided to make this morning a more productive one. I wanted to exercise but this morning I did not. I will plan for that sometime today. It is more beneficial to exercise in the morning versus late afternoon for most because it gives you a burst of energy you need. Since it is Ramadan( Holy Month of fasting for Muslims) I decided that I will exercise more in the evenings.
It was about 6am when I had finished reciting and I immediately made dua(prayer/supplication) for a more productive day. I began to focus on my goals. I checked and sent out important email(25 minutes), I worked on my business plan(marketing analysis seems to be taking me a bit long so i spent an hour on this!), and went to the library to do some research on trends in my business industry(45 min).
Ok what i am getting at is… productivity is best in the mornings and you may be able to reel in some clients while checking your social network accounts and blogs. This time of morning is very quiet and can help you to focus better on your goals and plan for success! It is also a time to meditate and focus on your body because it needs attention as well.
I encourage you to take some time in the mornings , in the early dawn, to reflect on the favours that The Creator has bestowed upon you, thank The Creator for giving you another day, organize your thoughts, listen to your body, and focus on the goals you would like to accomplish.
It is like a “tunnel of clarity” keeping you focused and enlightened!”
You know what they say…”The early bird catches the worm”! The more earlier you begin your day the better chance you have at success is what I stand on!!!
