It is nothing like you are trying to make your mornings chaotic or stressful. Maybe, you have tried different routines in the past to make your mornings more productive. Things go well for sometimes but then you find yourself falling off the wagon and unable to stick to the routine that you have created.
It is because the idea of a morning routine sounds restrictive but if you keep a little structure for the first part of your day, it will help you get everything done. This will free up time to improvise as much as you would like later on. Following are the ways you can set a positive tone for the entire day:
Do some exercise:
Exercise is really important for your physical and mental health but if you do it in the start of every morning, it gives you more energy and a positive outlook for the day ahead. Doing exercise for even ten minutes releases a neurotransmitter that helps your brain feel relaxed and your impulses in control.
Drink honey and lemon water:
In order to spike your energy levels physically and mentally, you need to drink honey and lemon water as soon as you wake up. This is a natural remedy that improves nutrient absorbent in your stomach because they are chock full of potassium, vitamin C, and antioxidants.
Stay away from gadgets:
You need to take care of your precious moments of going to bed and waking up in the morning by staying away from gadgets. Instead of straight jumping on to the social media, do things that relax your mind and set a positive tone for the day. Also, stay away from digital screens before going to bed to ensure a good night sleep.
Eat healthy breakfast:
For a more productive day, you need to eat a healthy breakfast every morning. When you eat something healthy, it gives you energy and improves your memory and helps to concentrate more for over longer periods of time.
Set concrete goals:
You can make your day more productive only if you know what you have planned ahead for yourself. Set two or three goals that you make sure to complete and it will help you maintain the tone for the rest of the day.
Don’t check emails in the start:
In the morning, your level of concentration is high, therefore, spend it on quality work. Do not check your emails unless you have done most important work. It is because when you indulge in checking emails, you forget what needs to be done first and waste your precious mental energy.
The sequence of habits when one leads directly into another, helps you to form a routine. Once you get the next habit in the stack down, it is easier to tack on the next one.
