The number one step to achieve the best morning routine is to actually leave your bed. This sounds silly, but I’m sure we all have those days when we linger too much and end up leaving the bed way after our alarm goes off.
You’ll feel much more motivated to have a productive day if you ignore those thoughts at the back of your mind- and do the best to spring out of bed.
The way to get out of bed more easily is first to go to bed at a reasonable time each night and secondly to be optimistic about the wonderful things you can achieve that day. After all, it’s a fresh new start and that alone can be the motivation to get up, and get stuff done.
Having trouble getting up? Here's a wake-up light that uses natural light and calming wake-up sounds to get you up gradually.
The next great way to start your day is to eat some breakfast. Grabbing a cup of coffee and rushing out the door seems to be the in-thing at the moment, but there are significant benefit to having breakfast (as your mother always told you).
We’re not talking about having a heavy breakfast every day, but try to eat a simple breakfast, which will help you meet your nutritional needs for the day.
This way you will be able to concentrate better (which equals greater success) and you won’t have to pack those vital nutrients into just two meals a day. You’re also less likely to overdo the next time you do eat.
You may want to have a serving of fruit and a slice or two of whole meal toast or a (non-sugary) cereal like oatmeal or Weetabix.
The next way to set up the best morning routine is to leave a section of your morning to read and reflect.
Reading alone is a healthy daily habit, and doing this is the morning can make you feel accomplished, it’s something that most successful people list as a morning ritual. Reading the bible before starting a day’s work has been found to be very motivating and a empowering habit by many people.
Before you start your day, it’s also beneficial to set aside time to reflect and just to think. Many people seem to have stressful and rushed mornings, but your day will be much more enjoyable if you give yourself enough time in the morning to just be peaceful and calm.
Another key feature of the best morning routine is having a vision for the day. This means, not just diving into whatever you meet – but having a good idea of what it is you want to accomplish. To do this, many people like to create a to-do list the night before. I like to jot down my plans in the morning. But it depends on whatever works for you.
Your day has greater potential to be a successful one if you lay out a realistic expectation of what you want to achieve.
There’s no point beating yourself up if everything doesn’t go as planned, because hey life brings things up, but you’re more likely to use your precious minutes wisely this way.
There are many other things you can do in the morning that may contribute to a good morning. But I’m keeping this article pretty simple because I know that often times the morning is not ideal for attempting a whole day’s work.
The above points are basically a few suggestions that I believe lead to the most success in your day.
As you begin your day, think about a person you admire (a role model for you) and reflect on positive daily habits they practice. See how you can maybe take on these healthy habits in order to improve your daily results, too.
