2# Morning Rituals:
If you are asking: “What is Morning Ritual and what it can do?” then,
Morning Ritual is not some magic prayer or anything like that but a set of activities you do after waking up and before starting the day.
Like for example: You brush your teeth and drink a tea while sitting in the chair. This is a Morning ritual
“What it will do?”. Well, Your Morning determines you entire day. If it’s good, then your day will be good.
So, Our motive is to start our day with full of energy and Focus to conquer our Goals.
Now, There are many activities you can do to start your day with full of energy and positivity. Some of them are:
i) Affirmations: Right when you wake up, Say affirmations like:
“This is going to be my day”,
“I am full of energy today”,
“Today I am going to do my best”
or some I AM statements like:

or, “I am Brave”
“I am the Best”
And Which I do is “I am Winner and I am going win this day.”
There is whole reasons and logic for doing it, which I am not going to cover all in this Article. But
simply in the morning your mind is very acceptable and it will accept things you say.
ii) Listening To Song or Music: It’s a very easy to do and my favourite one.
You are going to choose a motivating or inspiring song or music
and listen it for some time. You can even Dance if you want or go for a walk.
3# Intermittent Fasting:
Intermittent Fasting is a style of eating and fasting.
You divide your day into two sessions: Fasting Window and Eating Window.
You are going to fast for a period of time which is known as Fasting Window. Like for 16 hours.
And Then you are going to break the fast by eating within a time period known as eating window. Like for 8 hours.
If you ask: “What It will do?“, Many things, it can do many things. Like:
i)Help you to lose fat

It is very good if you want to lose weight but still want to build muscles. And even if you want to be Healthy.

The Simple way to do it is 16/8 method on which we are going to fast for 16 hours and eat for 8 hours.
i) Choose a time for eating, Example: from 10am to 6pm is your eating window
Means you can eat anything during this time.
ii) Then, your fasting window will be: from 6pm to tomorrow 10am.
You can always Customize the time to suit your day.
I am doing it from before the New Year and it’s been great.
