Why the need for morning motivation

Motivation is the reason we want to start, continue, or stop doing something. It is a strong desire to plan and act in order to accomplish a goal. Finally, motivation is an internal factor that encourages you to continue working toward your goal.

It is for this reason that motivation is an important component for going after your goals and achieving success.

Without motivation, there is no drive within you to keep doing what you do for an intended purpose. There will be no fire or excitement to start something new. And you will find there’s nothing strong enough to make you want to break a bad habit.

Because the plan, action, and journey toward achieving something require hard work, blood, sweat, tears, and more tears. You must have a very strong reason or motivation to continue and overcome the ridicule, loneliness, misunderstanding, obstacles, and failures that will come your way.

Also because the journey is long and you may occasionally find yourself taking the wrong turn or being led astray, you will need to stay connected to your motivation. And, yes, your motivation, like a battery, needs to be recharged.

For this reason, you will need to get a dose of daily motivation each morning, if you must, so you don’t falter and lose sight of your goal in life.

How to motivate yourself in the morning

Morning is the time of day when you can restart your day. A clean slate.

Once you reset, there should be no room for the defeat of yesterday, only learning. Alternately, there should be no hangover from the victory because today is a new day to conquer, experience, and enjoy.

And the actions you take to start your day, particularly what you do first thing in the morning, set the tone for the rest of the day. As a result, it is important that you avoid a chaotic and stressful morning because it increases the likelihood that your day will be the same.

You must plan and prepare to be motivated in the morning. Especially if you are not a morning person like me. With a few simple changes, you can create a calm and organized morning for yourself.

A motivated morning charges you up and prepares you to face another day that will bring you closer to success. So here are some helpful pointers for motivating yourself in the morning:

  • Don’t hit the snooze button. By pressing the snooze button, you may oversleep or disrupt your sleep cycle. Both of these factors can increase your chances of feeling tired during the day.
  • Drink water first thing in the morning. After a dehydrating night’s sleep, your body requires plenty of water to rehydrate. You will need water to rehydrate your body and get you ready for the day. Keeping a glass or bottle of water near your bed serves as a reminder to drink as soon as you get out of bed.
  • Take in the early morning sunlight. “If sunlight reaches your eyes soon after you wake up,” says Dr. Huberman of the Huberman labs podcast, “it triggers a neural circuit that controls the timing of the hormones cortisol and melatonin, which affect sleep.” That means better sleep, better rest, and better energy and clarity for the day ahead.
  • Exercise. Exercising and stretching have been scientifically proven to release the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, which help to improve mood and long-term memory. So, working out in the morning is a natural way to increase your energy and improve your mood.
  • Spend some time planning and organizing your day ahead. This will give your day meaning and keep it from running you instead of the other way around.
  • Dress in clothes that make you feel good for an extra boost of confidence. It will also help to have a capsule wardrobe of items that fit you, are comfortable, and make you look great to avoid decision fatigue early on.
  • Make a morning mantra for yourself. Save a line or two from the quotes in the list above so that you can use the power of words to help you start the day encouraged.
