Whether you’re waking up in the morning to get ready for work or going over your schedule for the day, it’s important that you start off on the right foot. A morning routine can help with this by setting you up for success each day. Before we dive in, let’s take a minute to define what a morning routine is and how it can help us start our days off on the right foot.
A morning routine isn’t a set of rules with rigid times and actions, it’s a way to get your day started off on the right foot.
In the same way that your morning routine isn’t a set of rules with rigid times and actions, it’s also not something you should feel pressured to follow exactly as written. This is your routine–if it doesn’t work for you, change it!
You might find that some days are busier than others and need more structure in order to get everything done. Or maybe there are days when your schedule allows for less structure and more flexibility in when certain tasks get done during the day. Whatever works best for each individual person is what they should do!
Think about how you want to feel when you take action. That’s what your morning routine should help you accomplish
Think about how you want to feel when you take action. That’s what your morning routine should help you accomplish.
- When I wake up, I want to feel energized, excited and ready to tackle the day ahead of me.
- When I go to bed at night, I want to be proud of myself for all that I’ve done during my day (and also relaxed enough so that my mind can rest).
- While at work or school: focused on the task at hand and feeling like my best self!
Be realistic or you’ll just set yourself up for failure.
When you’re creating a morning routine, it’s important to make sure that your routine is realistic. This means that you don’t have too much on your plate and that you can actually complete all of the steps in your morning routine each day.
There are two main ways to do this: 1) ensure that all of the tasks in your morning routine are manageable; 2) identify how much time each task will take so that there isn’t too much pressure on any one activity.
Planning ahead can make your morning routine go more smoothly.
One of the best ways to make sure that your morning routine goes smoothly is to plan ahead.
If you know what needs to be done, and when, it’s much easier for things not to fall through the cracks or get rushed through at the last minute. You can also avoid feeling stressed out or overwhelmed by having everything ready in advance so that nothing feels like an emergency when it comes time for action.
If you’re feeling pressured or rushed by your morning routine that may be a sign that it needs some tweaking.
If you’re feeling rushed, pressured or frustrated by your morning routine that may be a sign that it needs some tweaking.
- Rushed: You might want to consider adding another activity into the mix. A great way to do this is through exercise–if you can fit in 20 minutes on the treadmill before work it will help clear away any lingering stress from the day before and give you more energy for whatever tasks are ahead of you.
- Pressured: If there are certain things in your routine that make you feel like they need done right now (like making sure kids have their backpacks packed), try breaking them up into smaller chunks throughout the day so they don’t feel overwhelming when combined into one task at night before bedtime or first thing in the morning when everyone else is getting ready too! Breaking down tasks makes them easier for everyone involved.”
Remember your mornings don’t have to look like everyone else’s. Your morning routine is about starting off your day on a positive note, no matter what time it starts.
It’s important to be realistic about what you can accomplish in the morning. If your goal is to meditate for 30 minutes, but your mind keeps wandering and it takes two hours for you to get through it, that’s fine! You’re doing what works for you. The point of having a routine is not necessarily the specific activities themselves but rather that they are consistent and help set up your day on a positive note so that no matter what happens during the rest of your day (and there will be plenty), at least things started off well enough that getting back up again won’t feel impossible or insurmountable.
It’s also okay if over time certain aspects of this routine change as needed–for example: if I’m feeling pressured or rushed by my morning routine that may be a sign that it needs some tweaking so I can start feeling more calm before facing my day head on!

A morning routine can help you set yourself up for success, whether it’s by helping you feel more energized or giving you an opportunity to reflect on what matters most to you. In this post, we’ll look at how to create and implement an effective morning routine so that every day feels like it starts off with a bang!
So the next time you wake up in the morning, don’t just hit snooze and roll over. Take some time to think about how you want your day to go, then create a routine that sets you up for success.
