If you’re looking to improve your morning routine but don’t know where to begin then don’t worry, you have definitely come to the right place. Whether you’re looking to make the most of the time you have in the morning or you want to improve your mood, changing your morning routine can be incredibly difficult. From waking up as early as possible to ensuring you eat breakfast every day, the more effort you make the better. With that in mind, here are 8 ways to ensure you have a great morning routine: 

 

– Wake Up As Early As You Can

 

One of the best things you can do to improve your morning routine is to make sure you are waking up as early as you possibly can. Whilst this doesn’t mean waking up at the crack of dawn, it does mean waking up with plenty of time to comfortably get ready and relax before you have to officially start your day. If you make going to work a part of your day rather than the reason you get up, you’re going to start your day off in a much better mood.

– Ensure You’re Drinking Water As Soon As You Wake Up

 

Another great tip is to ensure you’re drinking water as soon as you wake. Whether you keep a bottle of water by your bed or you head downstairs right away, the sooner you drink water in the morning the better. When you wake up in the morning you’re dehydrated so having a glass of water helps re-hydrate you right away, helping your brain to focus. 

 

– Don’t Skip Out On Breakfast

 

Although you may not be a morning person, having breakfast each and every morning is absolutely essential. Not only will it help you focus during the day but it will also help kick start your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day. Whether you grab some fruit on your way to work or you make yourself a sit-down breakfast each morning, you need to be sure you’re eating something to help start your day. For more benefits to eating breakfast each and every day, you can visit this site here. 

 

– Make Time To Exercise

 

Another important thing to make time for each morning is a little bit of exercise. Whether you prefer to spend your morning stretching at home or you like to head out to the gym, morning exercise will release the endorphins you need to have a great day. Whilst you don’t have to exercise each and every day, you will really start to notice the difference on the days you do exercise.

– Spend Time Focusing On Your Daily Affirmations 

 

If you’re focusing on your mental health and you want to make sure you’re starting your day off in the best possible way, you might want to think about focusing on your daily affirmations. For those that don’t know, daily affirmations are short, powerful, yet simple statements that are designed to manifest a specific goal. For example,  a daily morning affirmation can be as simple as I am healthy or I am happy to be where I am. 

 

Although it is not for everyone, it can really help some people when it comes to getting through the day. 

 

– Mentally Plan Out The Day Ahead

 

If you struggle when it comes to organisation and you need a little bit of guidance each day, planning out everything you need to do is a great way to clear your mind each morning. Often people find that they’re too busy worrying about their to-do lists and because of that, they tend to take much longer to get everything done. With a clear and actionable list, you can’t go wrong. 

 

– Listen To Some Feel-Good Music

 

Finally, starting your day off and having a great morning routine wouldn’t be complete with some feel-good music. Whether that means putting on your favorite album or listening to the charts, starting your morning with music is one of the best ways to ensure you’re in an incredible mood for the day ahead.

    These are some great tips! Our mornings ALWAYS feel rushed to me! I really think I will feel a ton better when the time changes. I have NEVER been a morning person as much as I try. I think the one thing that would help me the most is having a better sleep schedule and going to bed at an earlier time.

    Your post was spot on. I used to wake up around 6:00am. But recently I’ve been waking up around 445-5am to get started on my day. I do things in the morning that I’m not huge on and get that out of the way. Drinking water is always a must for me. What I neeed to get better at and I probably hit this at least 70% of the time is making my list of 5 things I need to do. Sometimes I get busy and don’t make the list but I want to hit this at least 90% of the time.

    I could stand to improve our morning routine. It’s okay, but we still end up being rushed when we’re trying to get out the door.

    One of my goal is to improve my morning routine, but procrastination is hitting on me. Maybe, I should start my day by exercising and eat some healthy breakfast.

    Great list and I follow almost everything except the daily affirmation. I workout and listening to good music had a healthy breakfast before that, but I think I need to start with a new routine with a positive affirmation. Do you have more examples or where I can start learning to get good positive affirmation? Please share links if possible. Thanks.

    In the last week I have realised that I need to wake up an hour before my kids to get some work and breakfast done so that I am more relaxed when they wake up and not rushing around
