On a scale from 1-10, how much do you LOVE waking up in the morning?
Do you look forward with excitement for your alarm to go off?
Or do you dread that moment every single day?
If mornings just aren't really your thing, then this post is for YOU my friend.
Morning routines are proven to make people more successful. They can reduce stress and literally improve your entire day. We are more productive and full of energy when we wake up to a purposeful morning routine.
Now, as if that isn't enough, below we have 5 more reasons you NEED a morning routine.
1. MORNING ROUTINES SET THE TONE FOR YOUR DAY
Ever feel like you are constantly rushing out the door in the morning to get to work, school, or wherever it is you are going? Do your mornings consist of frantic running around and feelings of stress? Creating a morning routine is one of the best ways to help combat those feelings. When you have a routine, you tend to go through your morning at a more reasonable speed feeling much more conscious and awake. It is hard to have a good day when your morning was a chaotic mess. But when your morning was calm and productive, it sets a very positive tone for the rest of your entire day.
2. MORNING ROUTINES HELP US BE MORE PRODUCTIVE
When you have a routine set for your morning, you are able to accomplish small tasks before you ever even leave the house. The more you accomplish before you leave, the more productive you will feel. That feeling of productivity will continue with you throughout the rest of your day, helping you be more successful in accomplishing your goals. It has been proven that simply making your bed each morning before you leave will jumpstart your entire day and make you feel more productive and accomplished. Just imagine how you will feel after completing your entire morning routine.
"Your first ritual that you do during the day is the highest leveraged ritual, by far, because it has the effect of setting your mind, and setting the context for the rest of your day." - Eben Pagen (CLICK TO TWEET)
3. MORNING ROUTINES HELP US BE MORE INTENTIONAL
Do you ever feel like you have so many dreams and goals yet you never seem to accomplish them? This could be a consequence of not being intentional enough with your day. When you have a morning routine you are more intentional about what you do each day. By being aware of what you want to accomplish and having a plan for your morning, the rest of your day will be more likely to go as planned.
4. MORNING ROUTINES HELP US REACH OUR GOALS
When we are intentional with our mornings, our days are more successful and productive. This leads us to being far more likely to accomplishing our goals. When our days are well planned out and start off on the right foot, the likelihood of reaching our goals improves.
5. MORNING ROUTINES CREATE BETTER HABITS
The more you do something, the more likely it will become a habit. Having a routine each morning leads to creating better habits. If you want to create better habits, implement those habits into your morning routine.
