Your alarm starts ringing as soon as it hits the set hour for the morning to get off the bed. You get dressed up, makeup, have breakfast and leave for the day. Is that all you are following?
To begin with a productive day, there is a lot more you need to opt for to get the best out of you.
A straightforward question before looking at the top 20 morning habits that will play a significant role in bringing the best out of you is “who is termed as the more productive person for the day?”
The energetic and enthusiastic one of course. Isn’t it?
Okay, let’s get started with the ways how to create phenomenal morning habits that could change your days, for the better, forever!
Here we go.
Wake Up And Smile
You have entered a new fresh day, smile for the new beginning this day has to offer you. Smile for the tasks you have to accomplish the whole day will make that inner sense of responsibility and eager to do what you love.
Warm Lemon Water
It detoxifies the body setting it to an active mode.
Sipping a warm glass of water helps in flushing out the toxins and wastes by cleansing it efficiently. It keeps the digestive system on track by maintaining the. On the other hand, drinking cold water after the meal can harden up the oil of the food being consumed and make it a fat deposit inside the intestine. So it is always suggested by the doctors to drink a glass of warm water 20 minutes post meal. It further supports in shedding those extra kilos you have put on and relieving from the pan.
The best thing to start the day for me is INTROSPECTION. It is indeed the magical task one can teach in the lifestyle that would do wonders for your life. It varies from person to person as to how to take the life. Do you fear from facing different challenges that come your way or you courageously take them as a chance to step over to the next level of your hurdles? That is what is introspection is all about. Self-analyzing power to know what I am up to and what is coming next. It is must task for every morning routine.
Move Out In The Fresh Air
Taking a walk or jogging and greet the world can give rise to the heavenly feeling inside you.
In fact, in my personal experience walking on the grass is just ‘out of the world’ feeling. Walking on the grass barefoot will cause you to feel the serenity of the environment giving your mood a unique twist of calm and relaxation which is an excellent thought to begin your day with.
List Down The Tasks For The Day
By making it a habit of listing down all the upcoming tasks for the day, you will gradually be more focus in your work and will get the determination to complete it in the 24 hours(before the day ends).
Consequently, there is a human tendency that is appreciated here for paying attention to all that is mentioned in a to-do list for the sake of self-satisfaction and moving ahead with a goal in mind is an excellent choice to opt for.
Wake Up Daily At The Same Time
Your body will get used to it. Waking up isn’t a big task but waking up every day at the same is. So for a healthy living style, adapting the same time to opening up your eyes every morning is an excellent sign of a substantial body.
Make Your Bed
You surely would not like to come back home to the jumbled and messed up bed. Make the bed as sweet and good looking as you would want it to be when your return home before leaving the house.
Check Your Calendar For What Good Is Coming Your Way
This is a motivation-booster. By monitoring your personalized schedule on what exciting is following your move is going to improve the confidence within as well as build the scope of more productivity.
Find Time To Be Grateful
All we tend to do is running and pacing up for our work now and then. Rarely do we find ourselves engaging in ourselves as to devote some precious time to think about the time when life has-beens that kind and showered success to you. I am pretty sure about the possibility that adopting this as a habit will surely be a life-changing experience for you and your future version.
Create A Routine And Stick To It
No matter where in the universe you find yourself, try keeping the same morning routine. A famous author once wrote, “The repetition itself becomes the important thing; it’s a form of mesmerism. I mesmerize myself to reach a deeper state of mind.” But, as anyone who’s made a New Year’s resolution knows it better, it’s relatively easy to create a routine for oneself, but then sticking to it is a different story.
Don’t Be A Procrastinator
Drop out the habit of saying ‘NO’ all the time. I mean do you ever say ‘Let me leave this task for next week.’ That is procrastination. You plan to say no for the present scenario and delegate the work for the future. If you are currently in such kind of situation, DROP IT! Instead, start being PROACTIVE.
Performing meditation denotes a sense of patience and steadiness in oneself. For all those who are not finding ways to be relieved from the distress and anxiety, meditation is a boon!
If you’re new to meditation, even five minutes of perhaps listening to a guided meditation or some lovely music will do.
Practicing meditation for a more extended period, you might notice that you can handle stress better, concentrate more efficiently, be extra patient, increase awareness and heart health.
Listen To Your Favorite Track While Getting Ready For The Day
A great trick indeed! Shake a leg on the tunes of your favorite tracks can will power inside the body. You will start loving and appreciating each and everything that is happening around you because your mood is all set to brighten up. It further adds the feeling of positivity in you.
Be Intentional About The Choices Of The Day
If, however, your daily tasks boil down to things that you find dull or pointless then possibly it’s time to reconsider why you’re doing them in the first place. Because if you don’t live intentionally, it becomes far too easy to move through life without ever having lived on your terms. As Dillard said, our days comprise our lives. Intentionality means taking stock of our lives and making changes if we’re unhappy. Creativity can only flourish if we’re in touch with ourselves and our ambitions.
Produce Self-Motivation Power
Developing self-motivation power will not only improve the stability in work-life balance but also act as an energy boosting agent that flows down the blood.
Check Important Emails
It might be the case that you forgot checking emails last night when you returned home. Maybe important ones or the other way round. Take out some precious time out in the morning to devote some time to it before leaving. Have a glance at your emails
Chat With Your Family
Spending some time with your family is a richness in its unique way. For the whole day long you will be engaged in your professional life anyhow. Sparing out some time out of your schedule is equally necessary for spending with your family and closed ones.
Do not be in a rush
Getting your toes in a hurry is getting yourself in a closed circle of anxiety which nobody wishes to fall. Another thing you would relate it with yourself that it can cause a feeling of hypertension within which is the worst decision to start your day!
Have A Nutritious Breakfast
I find it hard to eat first thing in the morning, but when I do eat I know I feel great afterward. You’re fuelling your body and mind for the day ahead. Few quick breakfasts meals you can cook for your self – bag up some chopped fruit and veg for ready to make smoothies, make pancakes, cornflakes, and milk and the list is endless.
Scan Your Home Before Leaving
Like I said before, do not be in a rush. You will get nothing good out of it.
There is more of a possibility that you would leave out some essential things to carry with yourself. So it is better to make it in a routine to scan the full house to check whether you left out with something important or not.
How about practicing one or a few of these morning habits daily from your next morning and see how it takes your life ahead?
