Morning Routine Ideas
If you're always looking for new ways to be more productive and feel better about yourself. And one of the efficients ways to start your day off is by making a small change to your morning routine. I know it sounds boring but trust me when I say that this simple act can make all the difference in the world.
It's no secret that our mornings are where we spend most of our time getting ready for work or school. So why not make it a beautiful experience instead of something stressful? look at some of these ideas that may motivate you.
Add A 10-Minute Strength Workout To Your Morning Routine.
Start with an excellent warm-up. A few rounds of jumping jacks or high knees will get your blood pumping and get you ready to work out.
Once that's done, move into the central part of the workout: choosing exercises that target different muscle groups. For example, chest presses and squats are great for targeting your chest and quads. You can do these by using dumbbells (or just using your body weight). Bench presses are another great exercise that targets chest muscles; see if you can find a bench at home so that you don't have to go anywhere else for equipment.
Wake Up Earlier.
The first step to a good morning routine is waking up earlier. Waking up early doesn't mean you have to wake up at dawn, but if you'd like to make it easier on yourself, try setting your alarm 30 minutes earlier than usual. This allows more time for your body to wake up naturally before the alarm goes off, which will help prevent shock and grogginess when it finally does ring.
Another tip: Set an alarm that goes off 15 minutes before your usual one this way, if you do hit snooze and let the world lull you back into sleep, there's another one waiting after that! And remember: We're all tempted by those snooze buttons because they seem like such an easy way out; however, all that does is postpone getting out of bed until 10% longer than necessary (and then there's always another wink). Getting rid of that button can be hugely beneficial for creating a healthy morning routine in which we call ourselves moving as soon as possible rather than prolonging our rest period unnecessarily.
Spend Some Quality Time With Your Journal.
Your journal can be a place where you express yourself and your thoughts. It's also a great place to write down your goals and the steps you need to take to achieve them.
You may also use your journal to express your feelings about yourself and the world around you.
When writing in your journal, think about what kind of mood or tone sounds suitable for the entry. Do something simple like "I am happy about…" or "I am sad about…" or even just "Today went well because…."
Make Your Bed.
Making your bed is one of the best ways to start the day. You can do it in under a minute, but it will make you feel more organized and put together. Making your bed helps set the tone for the rest of the day by making it seem like you're ready to take on whatever comes next.
Start a habit of making your bed every morning. Once it becomes a habit, you'll find yourself doing this automatically every morning without even thinking about it! The key here is to make this happen first thing when you wake up (or the last thing before going to sleep).
In addition to looking more organized and tidy overall, having an unmade or messy-looking room can create anxiety if we see our messy spaces all day long, especially if there are other disorganized things in our lives! So why not start each new day on a positive note?
Drink That Water.
Drinking water is good for you. It helps you stay hydrated, which keeps your heart healthy, helps you lose weight, and gives you more energy overall. It feels incredible to finish a cup of ice-cold water first thing in the morning!
Get The Coffee Brewing.
If you're a morning person, chances are you've got some morning ritual. But if, like me, you're not a morning person and sometimes need some help getting out of bed, try these tips to get yourself in the right mindset to start your day.
The first step is to get your coffee brewing! You can pour hot water into your favorite mug and add an espresso shot or two. Make sure to grind it immediately before brewing—otherwise. It'll be too strong for your taste buds when they're fully functioning at 7 am instead of 5 pm (when most people drink their last cup).
Put On Some Music.
This is one of the essential steps to a successful morning routine, but it's important to start with a song that gets you pumped up and ready to take on the day. The right music can instantly change your mood, try listening to something upbeat, like "The Way You Make Me Feel" by Michael Jackson or "Get Ready for This" by 2 Unlimited. If you're feeling more mellow, try some soft rock like "With or Without You" by U2 or "Somebody to Love" by Queen; if you're looking for something inspirational, try some classical music (the opening theme from Mozart's Symphony No. 41 sounds great when pumped through an old-fashioned speaker).
Meditate For Just 5 Minutes.
Meditation is a great way to start your day. It can help you feel calmer and more focused and boost your productivity levels throughout the day. If you don't have time for a full-blown meditation session, try meditating for just 5 minutes first thing in the morning.
To do this, sit upright on a chair or cushion with your back straight but not rigid. Close your eyes and breathe deeply into your belly with each inhale and exhale through pursed lips (like you're whistling) to help slow breathing even more. If it helps, count up to 10 breaths at one time before opening your eyes again—but try not to focus too much on numbers (you don't need any equipment). Once you find yourself distracted while meditating, a common occurrence, bring yourself back into focus on counting breaths again by reminding yourself that it only takes five minutes
Now that you've read through these ideas, it's time to start! You can decide which ones work best for your schedule and lifestyle. Then, start implementing the small changes one at a time. Remember to track how they affect you—positively and negatively—and remember that changing habits is hard work! But if you stick with it and keep up your motivation (don't forget those positive affirmations), then I know this will be a fantastic journey for all of us.
