The Benefits of a Morning Routine

By Donna Stark

Have you been looking for ways to make your mornings more enjoyable, your days more productive, and your body more healthy? Do you wish you could start your days with less stress and a happier disposition? Well, here is a little secret ... you don't need to look for multiple ways. You just need to do one specific thing to find the success you are looking for. You need to establish a consistent morning routine.

The Benefits of a Morning Routine

Are you wondering why you should think about establishing a consistent morning routine? Well, at its simplest level, a morning routine will help set your day up for success. You will start to notice that you feel more motivated than you do right now and your daily to-do list will seem a lot less overwhelming. But that's not all. Check out these other benefits that a morning routine can bring to your life too.

  • Better moods
  • Reduced levels of stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Increased energy and motivation
  • Increased structure and productivity
  • Increased levels of physical activity
  • Improved, healthier diet

Getting Started

The tone of your day relies on a good morning routine, but the type of morning routine that works for you may not be the type that works for your best friend. In other words, you need to figure out what works best for your schedule and design a plan around that. Here are some suggestions that can help get you started.

  • Wake-up call - Your friend may decide to wake up before sunrise but that doesn't mean you need to rise at that time too. Take a look at your calendar and wake up at a time that makes sense.
  • Movement - Start your mornings with some movement. This can consist of some simple stretches or you can do more by walking, running, cycling, or strength training.
  • Breakfast - You should also start the habit of making yourself a healthy breakfast in the morning too! Leave the coffee and pastry for someone else and consume a breakfast that is filled with nutrient-dense foods.
  • Prioritize - Before you dive into work, take a few moments to prioritize your daily tasks. Whether you tackle the most difficult one first or save it for later in the day, finding what works best in your schedule is critical!

Win the Day

Mornings don't have to be rough and your days can definitely flow more smoothly but you need to take the necessary steps first in order for that to happen. And if you feel overwhelmed with the thought of revamping the routine you follow now, just start with some baby steps! You may surprise yourself at how easy it is to change the course of your days!
