Get the most of your mornings

There are so many benefits you can gain from developing your own productive morning routine. You’ll feel much more energized and productive throughout the day. You can use your mornings to start new healthy habits, to work, or to have some time for yourself.

Everyone can be a morning person. You just have to find what works for you. You don’t need to wake up at five a.m., run 7 miles, do the laundry, read a book,…all of this before your workday starts. Everybody’s schedule is different and so everyone’s routine will be different too.

So here are my tips to get the most of your mornings:

⏰ Don’t hit snooze:

Whenever the alarm goes off, get up, and stretch your body. Go wash your face and get ready. Lying around in bed can cause you to fall back asleep and sleeping in intervals is not restful. My tip for you is to put your phone away the night before, so in the morning you have to get out of bed to turn the alarm off.

📵 Don’t check your phone:

Checking social media right after you wake up is so unhealthy for our minds. If we don’t check our phones, we can start our day on a more relaxed and fresh note. Instead of worrying about the work emails, articles, notifications, posts, we can focus on our own basic needs first. Whatever that habit is, do it before you check your phone.

🥛 Drink water:

Water should be the first thing you drink in the morning. If you drink some water after you wake up, you’ll start waking your body up and feel ready to start your morning, also it flushes out toxins. My tip for you is to always have a water bottle next to your bed.

🛏️ Make the Bed:

It’s a really obvious tip but it’s a really productive way to start your day (and you won’t be tempted to go back there).

🥞 Eat a healthy breakfast:

A healthy breakfast is so important to start your day! If you eat some donuts right after you wake up you’ll start feeling sluggish and no energy. A healthy meal boosts your energy levels and alertness and provides essential nutrients. You’ll feel so much more clear and productive.

🏃‍♀️ Workout:

You don’t need to do an intense and long workout or run 5 miles. If you always take only 10 minutes from your morning routine to do a little workout, some stretching, or yoga it’s enough! You’ll feel much more energized and good about yourself. And if you can do your workout outside, do it! It’s an excellent way to get some vitamin D and fresh air.

🎶 Listen to music:

Put your favorite playlist on while you’re getting ready to lift up your mood! Sing and dance around your house and have a great time with yourself in the morning.

There are so many benefits you can gain from developing your own productive morning routine. Feel free to take inspiration and develop your own that help you become a better morning person. Also, don’t forget to carry your morning routine into the weekend!

        That is 1st time I’ve heard of this! I love this advice. Do you have any books, blogs, apps etc. Else you’d offer anyone suffering severe depression? God bless 🙏!

  5. This is so good. I do try some in the mornings and whenever I do them I’m so refreshed. But anytime I don’t, I go out lazing all day because I’m full.

    Thanks Katie. I love you your post.

    1. So true, morning routines are so powerful!

  6. Waking up early in the morning is a big challenge for me. I usually snooze and sleep. Keeping the phone away from the bed before night is a good idea. But sometimes I wake up and walk all the way to the phone. Switch the alarm off and again sleep. So to get rid of that sleep totally, looking at the messages or posts as you get up will help. In my opinion. As you say looking at the posts and mails before going to bed is bad for sleep. The same technique if we do it in the morning we may get alert.

    1. Suggestions:
      1. Make a decision to make a change. That’s the first step.
      2. Find something you like to do, after you wake up.
      3. Start with just one of the steps suggested, to begin experiencing the change you WANT.
      4. Write an affirmation and stick it up where you can see it when you wake up. Eg: ‘I love getting up early in the morning’.
      Maybe it would help to figure out WHY you want to make a change. The answer to that would be your motivator. What you currently do is operating from a program in your subconscious mind. Change that program with a new one. Good luck.

      1. Thank you so much for all the suggestions! 😊

    Getting over hitting snooze is a hurdle of my. When I do get up early, I enjoy getting in a workout and some extra house work before work. Its a big boost of happiness and confidence rolled up in one simple act of getting up with the alarm.
