Priming - the Most Important Element of the Morning Ritual

How many times do you wake up in the morning and find you don’t feel like doing anything? No matter how many cups of coffee you drink, you still are neglecting the work you need or want to do. This is where priming can help you.

Our thoughts, feelings and emotions can be primed by factors we’re not even aware of, which greatly impacts our performance in other aspects of our lives.

A very good explanation of how priming works come from an experiment conducted by Yale University in 2008 using a hot and cold cup of coffee. They asked undergraduate, test subjects to hold a cup of hot or cold coffee for a moment. 30 minutes later they told the subjects a story with information about the personality of an individual. The subjects were asked to assess the personality traits of the individual. The ones who had held ice-cold coffee, assessed the individual’s personality as significantly colder, compared to those who had held hot coffee.

If the temperature of a cup of coffee has the power to influence individuals, how much more will this morning routine influence your entire day?
