The first thing you do sets the tone for the day. Not everyone is a morning person but having a good morning routine can help you go about your day with more focus, be more productive and most importantly improve mental health and wellbeing.
There are no right or wrong ways to a morning routine but here are some tips to help you get out of bed on the right foot.
Give time to yourself
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? These days we might be quick to jump onto social media or our emails. Dedicate some time to yourself, this might be 10 minutes meditating, do some exercise, or making your favourite brew. Whatever you choose to do, make sure it is for yourself and without external distractions.
An act of gratitude
Have something feel thankful for will put your mind on a positive tone. This might be saying a prayer, watering the plants or read something uplifting so you can tackle whatever the day may bring.
Do you have an important meeting or a first date tonight? Set yourself a to-do list of what you want to accomplish each day. This will keep your mind focus, free from distractions, and motivated throughout the day.
Your morning routine should help you ease into your days. It should be enjoyable, make you happier, and give you something to look forward to. Check out Motifate and start creating your morning routine.
