7 Things that can Help You Set the Best Morning Routine
We all start our day differently. Some of us start our day with a morning coffee; some check social media, others check their inbox, some drink lemon-honey water (like me), others attend their yoga class, cardio session and so on. There are hundreds of thousands of ways people can start their day.
But the question is which morning routine suits you the best. No one can create the best morning routine for you, as we all have different preferences, different working styles and biological rhythms. The routine that suits the highly productive people doesn’t mean it works for you. If you are not satisfied with your current routine and looking for ways on how to start your day, here, I have listed a list of ideas that you can implement to make a perfect routine.
You can mix and match the activities you like most and skip the ones that make you uncomfortable. It will take 30 days to stick to your new routine, so choose the one that you find most interesting.
Let’s get started!
Wake Up According to Your Biological Clock
When it comes to set a perfect morning routine so that you can make the most of your day, it is important to wake up at your right time. I’ll not emphasize early, as some people find it extremely hard to wake up at 6 am to start their day and they try to snooze the alarm for a few hours of sleep. Instead, choose a time that suits you best; it helps your body to establish a rhythm that makes it easier to get up without finding excuses to sleep more.
Do What You Love
Waking up early is a daunting task for many, especially when you don’t have a reason to jump out f bed. Do what you like most; it will encourage you to jump out of your bed every morning. Whether it’s your favorite hobby, reading, writing, exercise, your passion project or any other activity, take some time to do something meaningful and significant.
Doing so will prepare you for a very productive day ahead. You will feel fresh, positive, and accomplished, and gear you up for a successful day ahead. Using this time to pursue something that means a lot to you will make you feel valuable and improve your self-confidence.
Set Your Plans Earlier
After waking up, think about the most important task that you want to complete first. We all know our To-Do list of the day, but it is important to prioritize your tasks and do what matters most to you. Identifying your most important tasks is the most important step you can take to create your routine. A little planning can help you manage all your tasks efficiently.
When you plan your most important tasks of the day earlier, it will help you come up with some great ideas related to the tasks and prepare you for the most challenging tasks. Don’t waste your productive time on checking social media and stay away from doing all the mindless, unnecessary things; it will help you keep on the right track.
Celebrate Your Day’s Achievements
Find a few minutes at the end of the day to figure out all the good things you have done today and celebrate your wins. Write all your good things in a gratitude journal, on your phone app, or a notebook to keep track of everything you have done today.
Whether you believe it or not, it gives you a lot of encouragement and gives you a sense of accomplishment. If there is something that you didn’t be able to complete, find the reasons why it happened and promise yourself that it won’t happen again and you will put your best efforts to complete all your tasks for the day.
Learn New Things
Whether you are an entrepreneur, writer, blogger, designer, develop or marketer, invest your time in learning new things. For instance, if you are running a mobile app development company, discovering the latest trends and implementing them into your business strategy can help you improve your products or services and satisfy your customers’ needs. If you are a designer and leading a team of web designers, it is recommended to read interesting articles on the latest web design trends and graphic design elements or watch videos to learn how you can improve your work to meet the client’s requirements.
Remember, continual learning is the greatest investment that sets you up for your professional and personal growth.

There are hundreds of thousands of ways to increase your motivation. You can watch TED videos, read motivational blogs, quotes, inspirational stories, or talk to your loved one to boost your motivation levels.
