How to Harness the Power of the Morning Routine

Posted by Jennifer L Kropf on November 19th, 2020

It’s 11:00am on a weekday. And you’ve likely played out one of two scenarios:

In the first scenario, you got up this morning with just enough time to get yourself together and grab an easy (and unhealthy) bite to eat. You managed to suck down a lot of coffee and of course stopped for meaningless chit chat with a colleague. And now you’re just ticking off tasks to do, with no real sense of direction. You feel sluggish, bored, or overwhelmed.

In the second, you woke up early. First, you got in a good workout, meditation, and journaled your way to a purposeful day. Then, instead of picking up that donut, you made yourself a quick smoothie; because hey, you’re on a roll. And in place of marking off random tasks to be done, you’re knocking out the hard stuff first. So, when lunch rolls around, you’ve become more centered and accomplished more important stuff than most people do in a week.

Which morning scenario did you play out today?

As you can see, the right morning routine can be powerful. Indeed, it’s so monumental that repeated for a lifetime it can be the difference in the person that you turn out to be.

3 Easy Tips for Developing Your Best Morning Routine

Ready to level up on your morning routine? Do this:

Read About What Works for Others

A morning routine is not one size fits all, but success leaves clues. So, find articles and books that talk about what people do in their days to become more productive, happy, and successful.

Then, begin experimenting and seeing what works for you. Here are some morning routine examples:

  • Meditation
  • Cold showers
  • Reading
  • Deep work
  • Relationship building
  • Journaling
  • Exercise
  • Prayer
  • Morning Affirmations
  • Visualization

Get Up Early

It’s easy to lose sight of ourselves in the slog of adulthood.

But once your family is up or you arrive at your desk for work, you are on someone else’s time. So, by waking up an hour or two before your obligations, you give yourself the gift of self-care and making progress towards YOUR beloved goals.

What do you want most out of life? Use your morning routine to get you there.

Give It Time

Whatever you choose to do in your mornings, give it the time it requires to make an impact on your life. Many of us quit a new beautiful habit simply because we don’t see the results fast enough.

So, stick to a number. You will not give this up for 21, 31, or 66 days. Only at that time will you re-evaluate this new habit.

In Conclusion

For most, a life-changing morning routine is about the process. We change and evolve and so does the routine that works best for us.

However, one thing is certain. Putting purpose and design behind how you start your day will transform your life into one with genuine meaning, exceptional health, and superior productivity.

It starts with a single step. A single habit. And goes from there. Start now and see where it goes!
