Importance of a morning routine

Starting the day without a plan or a sense of purpose is a recipe for disaster. It will result in a chaotic day in which you will be tired, frustrated, and stressed but will have accomplished nothing worthwhile.

The key to a productive day is to establish a morning routine. One in which you maintain a consistent first waking hour throughout the week and engage in activities, rituals if you will. That will keep your body and mind at peak performance.

Here are some of the most important reasons to develop a morning routine:

  • It gets you started right away and puts you in the right frame of mind.
  • Allows you to keep track of the time you spend each day doing something worthwhile and productive from the moment you wake up.
  • It allows you to have more control over your day.
  • Lowers your stress levels.
  • Increase your energy levels.
  • Helps to get the important tasks done first.
  • Improves your adaptability.

How to start a morning routine

Starting a morning routine should be simple enough. However, morning routines are not a one-size-fits-all process. You have to find the ones that will work best for you and your current circumstances.

Your morning routines will be in constant flux, adapting to your goals. What matters is that you have a process in place to save you time and the act of decision-making. Precious resources that could be spent on more important tasks that will move you closer to your goals.

That being said, here are some suggestions for getting started with a great morning routine:

  • Maintain a fixed bedtime and waking time. For a morning routine to stick, it is best for it to be consistent. When you decide on a morning waking hour, keep your schedule even on weekends. This is to set a healthy sleep-wake cycle. And at the same time reset your internal clock, or circadian rhythm, resulting in better quality sleep.
  • Determine how much time you will need for your morning routine. That is, how much time you need to prepare to get things ready for the day. For example, breakfast, lunch for the kids, pet needs, and so on. Plan your morning routine so that you have enough time and don’t have to rush around.
  • Ditch the snooze button. Hitting the snooze button does not help you establish a consistent waking-up pattern. You may need to adjust your wake-up time if you find you need more rest. Remember that adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per night for quality rest. But if you hit snooze for other reasons, you may want to schedule something that you enjoy doing. As an incentive for you to stick to your morning wake-up schedule.
  • Get out of your bed. Just get up, put your feet on the floor, and go about your morning routine.
  • No phones. Avoid scrolling through the news or your social media feeds. This can negatively affect your day’s productivity.

Morning routine ideas

In addition, here are some morning routine suggestions for you to consider:

  • Start your day a few minutes earlier than usual. So you can devote more leisure time to yourself.
  • Drink water first before your usual coffee or tea. This helps rehydrate you and jump-start your metabolism. This, according to research boosts metabolism by up to 30%.
  • Go for a walk outside. This helps reduce your levels of stress and anxiety throughout the day.
  • Expose to early morning sunlight. Promotes metabolic well-being and positive functioning of your hormone system. It also signals the release of cortisol which promotes a healthy immune system.
  • Exercise. A healthy lifestyle requires at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise daily.
  • Plan your day ahead. So that your day can follow a structure for productivity.
  • Tidy up. Making up your bed should be a good start.
  • Read uplifting quotes such as the ones shared in the earlier section of this article. For a morning motivational boost and take advantage of the power of words.
  • Have a mantra to repeat each morning. One that will calm you or help bolster you to take on the day ahead.
  • Enjoy a healthy breakfast.
