How to Create a Productive Morning Routine
Productive morning routines set the tone for a successful day. Without a morning routine to set you up for victory, you risk sacrificing your energy, focus, and attention to detail during your long day ahead.
If you make snoozing your alarm a habit, the less likely you are to feel 100% ready to start your day. Ask yourself if the extra 5-10 minutes of sleep are worth making you feel rushed and late to work.
Take a 15-30 minutes to sit quietly and meditate before starting your day. Sitting silently can calm your mind, reduce stress, and lead to a more proactive outlook for the day. Apps like Headspace or Calm can help guide you through your practice.
Drink a Glass of Water
After sleeping for hours your body needs to hydrate. Quench your thirst first thing with a large glass of water. You can even add lemon to help remove toxins from your digestive tract, stimulate your metabolism, and freshen your breath.
Write 3 Tasks
Write down three tasks that you MUST get done today and complete those three items first. Finishing your to-do list will instantly make you feel accomplished and can inspire you to complete additional items that may have originally overwhelmed you from the start.
