Getting Up: A Good Morning Routine
Everyone has a different morning routine. Some people like to wake up early and go for a run, while others prefer to sleep in. Some people like to wake up to music, while others need silence. We all have different needs, so why should we all have the same morning routine?
Waking up on a great morning is the best feeling in the world. It gives us new energy and perspective and the motivation to do anything. It’s a catalyst for new beginnings. And because it’s a new day and a new beginning, we don’t have to carry over anything from the day before. We can start the day with a clean slate, and how we treat ourselves in the morning is how we treat ourselves for the rest of the day.
Here are the following routines that will definitely give you a good and productive morning:
- Wake up at the right time. As a human being, you have two reasons to get up: survival and success. If you only get up to survive, then you are not a successful living being. Animals do not need to get up in the morning and go to their jobs.
They are satisfied with the life they have. But people are different. People want more. They want to be successful. Success is everything. If you do not want to be successful, then you are not a human being. If you do not get up at your right time, you are not a successful living being.
- Prepare it the night before. The first few hours of the day are some of the most productive and, as a result, least stressful. By making the most of this time, you can simplify your morning routine and eliminate decision-making tasks that can interfere with a well-rested start.
As a person of the modern-day, you should know that most of the things we face throughout the day are decisions. They can be as big as which job to take or as small as what to have for breakfast. Most of these decisions can be simplified by making them the night before, so you wake up knowing exactly what you need to do. That way, you won’t have to make a choice, only do.
- Create your ideal routine. If you are running late in the morning (or at any time for that matter), the last thing you want to do is attempt to do any sort of exercise routine. However, routines can actually help you get to where you need to be and beyond. They can help you relax, clear your mind, and even motivate you to get to work or school on time.
The key is to create a morning routine that works for you and your lifestyle. If you’re a morning person, you might be able to get away with a basic routine of waking up, getting dressed, and eating breakfast. If you’re a night owl, a morning routine might help you to get up earlier and get going.
- Morning workout helps. You may be reluctant to start your morning with an exercise routine, but the benefits of working out early in the day are numerous. Research shows that people who train in the morning are more consistent in their exercise routines and are also more likely to try new activities. Also, starting your day with a brisk walk or workout can help you feel more energized throughout the day.
- Prioritize the big task. When you have a big list of things to do, the urge to procrastinate can be overwhelming. If you have tasks that are important and require a good amount of time, the tendency to put them off will be even stronger.
Fortunately, there is a trick that can help you get through these tasks and get your procrastinating under control. It may sound counterintuitive, but you should do your biggest task first. Tasks that require more energy are usually more important, and therefore get our attention and demand to be made. When you do your biggest task first, you make sure that you’ll have enough energy left to finish the rest of your day.
Most of us have a morning routine. We have a cup of coffee, check emails, then go to work. However, if you want to be successful, you should also include some mindfulness. Why is it important to create an ideal routine? To be successful, you need to get in the “zone.” It’s hard to do this if your morning routine is mundane and boring. You need a routine that you will look forward to. You need a routine that will get you motivated.
