What is the morning routine?
How to start a healthy morning routine — and stick with it?
Morning routine is essentially a set of actions you perform in the morning, usually before starting your day's main activity like going to work or to school. The actions can be anything from drinking a glass of water or brushing your teeth to doing a two-hour workout or running around or meditation. For instance, waking up at 6:00 AM and exercising every morning is a routine.
If you, like most other people, wake up every morning because your alarm clock is constantly ringing, so you are no longer sleep and you are dragging yourself get out of bed reluctantly, not wanting to get up, but you must do because you need to travel somewhere, do something, go to meet or take care of someone. If you do not need to do those things, you will still sleep.
There are 4 tips to start a healthy morning routine and stick with it:
1. Set your alarm to work for you — not against you. To give yourself enough time for self-care in the morning, set your alarm clock a bit earlier -- and go to bed earlier, too.
2. Breathe in the new day.
3. Drink water before coffee.
4. Move your body in all directions.
The morning routine will help us set the tone for the day, better allowing us to control our schedules rather than our schedule controlling us. As we start each day fresh, we can better focus on what is in front of us, where to prioritize our time, and, ultimately, increase our productivity.
