Everyone is unique in so many ways – we process things differently, and pattern our days based on what we prioritize daily. But while everyone seems to have a different routine, there are still common denominators that we noticed! Here are some of the most common habits that we see successful people do daily:
GET ENOUGH SLEEP AND GET UP EARLY
We’re going to be the first to admit that we’re guilty of hitting that snooze button in the morning, but here’s the deal we’ve discovered: a lot of successful people get up early so they can do activities dedicated to their self-care: whether it’s mediating or working out or getting some meal prep done in the morning.
According to Inc, 90% of executives wake up before 6AM on weekdays to give themselves extra time to stretch, drink coffee, or read. This is because they know the rest of their day is going to be dedicated to the hustle and rush of work and business. It’s also their way of putting themselves first and doing something for themselves before doing something for others.
Make sure you get enough sleep, so you feel refreshed and ready to conquer a brand-new day! It's recommended for adults to get between 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night to function at their best, so get that sleep and get fired up for the next day ahead. You can also get an energy boost by taking B vitamins – they're beneficial for brain function, energy levels, and cellular health.
Nutrilite™ B Vitamins has all eight essentials B Vitamins including biotin that is used by the body to help fight fatigue. It has the added traceable ingredient: spirulina, blue-green algae rich in nutrients. The spirulina in our B vitamins is cultivated in Amway's own Nutricert™ certified partner facility in Southern California, which uses a specially designated pond system that uses gentle paddle stirring. This cultivation process assures a perfect mixture of fresh water, nutrients, and exposure to the intense Sonoran Desert farm.
MAKE PROTEIN-PACKED POWER MEALS
If you want to maximize your day, you need energy and power to get through it, especially if you're on the go! So here are some recipes that you can enjoy throughout the day.
They’re delicious easy to make, and full of protein -- the building blocks of our body. Protein is known as a macronutrient like fat and carbohydrates, which means our body needs a lot of it. It’s what makes up our hair and nails and is also the main part of building and repairing tissue. These recipes are all made with Nutrilite™ All Plant Protein Powder so get cooking and get your daily dose of protein power:

The age-old saying, “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail” still rings true. Even just listing down your tasks will help a lot for your busy day, so make sure you know what you need to accomplish!
WORK AND PLAY!
A productive day doesn't just mean getting things done, it can also mean connecting with your peers and getting everyone in a good mood! Bond over lunch, tell jokes during a client meeting to lighten the mood, and share tips about work and life in general. All these contribute to a perfect day!
DOUBLE UP ON NUTRIENTS
For people on-the-go, it’s important to fuel up on energy by having a hearty lunch! Get something with lots of proteins, vitamins, and minerals, and to really get the nutrients you need, supplement your meal with Nutrilite ™ Double X ™. Made with unique plant ingredients and blended by science, it has a vitamin tablet, a mineral tablet, and a phytonutrient tablet. Take one of each twice a day with meals, and your body will thank you for it!
GET UP AND GO
Sitting too long isn't good for anyone's health, who stand up and walk around every hour or so! Not only will a short powerwalk energize you, it will also be a change of scenery and it might bring you inspiration to your day! So, stretch those limbs and go!
HAVE A PERFECT NIGHT
You put in a lot of work throughout the day, so it should end in a relaxing and rejuvenating evening. Have a healthy dinner, put your feet up, and maybe enjoy a glass of wine to help unwind. Recount your day, celebrate your wins, and reward your body with an extra boost with Nutrilite™ Omega 3 Complex Softgel Capsule, a natural fish oil supplement rich with omega-3 fatty acids which promote heart health and play an important role in brain and eye health.
