If you can start your day right, then you can get more done in a day. A good morning routine can change your life for the better. You might be one step away from living a completely different lifestyle. Something as simple as a morning routine can be the solution to more than half of your problems. Hal Elrod came up with the perfect morning routine, he named it Miracle Morning. Let me give you a basic idea about what he meant.
Waking up & importance of morning routine
The hardest part of a day for most of us is to wake up. We tend to sleep up until the very last minute. The old saying ‘you snooze, you lose’ make so much sense now. When you delay waking up until you absolutely have to, it means you’re resisting life. Here are a few tips to not use that SNOOZE button-
Keep your alarm away from your bed, so you need to get up. It helps to wake the body up.
Brush your teeth and splash water on your face. Doing something that doesn’t require a lot of thinking helps your body get things in circulation.
Drink a glass of water. After 6-8 hours without water, your body is obviously dehydrated and dehydration causes fatigue.
Waking is the most important part of any morning routine, for obvious reasons as you may be well aware of.
meditation in your morning routine
Meditation calms the mind and body. Practice silence. Meditation strengthens the immune system and is a great way to start your day with. It helps you concentrate better and build your focus over time, which is a great skill for anything that you might want to pursue. Including meditation in your morning routine can bring about drastic changes in your sleep, mood, and habits. Research says that 20 minutes of meditation a day can help you stress and feel your best. So, it’s every way worth it.
Visualizing your aspirations and dreams is believed to attract your dreams into the reality. You might have heard of the saying, ‘Conscious shapes reality.’ Weather or not you believe in law of attraction, visualization lifts your spirits and emotion. It is like having that motivation switch that you can turn on when you’re feeling down. Most importantly, it can help you overcome major problems like procrastination. Motivation is an important part to achieve anything and including visualization into your morning routine is a really good idea.
Morning exercise should be constant in every morning routine. Your physical health is an important aspect of your productivity and must never be neglected. It helps you be more creative and productive, while also energizing you for the day ahead. When you exercise even for a few minutes in the morning, it significantly boosts your energy and mental clarity. Every morning you need to get your heart rate up and fill the lungs with oxygen. The kind of exercise you pick up is up to you. You can include things like walking, yoga or go for a run in your morning routine to have a head start for the day.
Books are the source material to literally anything you can think of. Whatever you want in life, there are countless books about it. The key is to learn from the experts who have already done it and try to replicate their results using your own innovative way. If you include reading in your morning routine, with an almost infinite amount of books on every topic, there’s no limit to the amount of knowledge you can get. All the successful people have one thing in common, they read every single day. If you read at least 10 pages a day, think of the wealth of information you might be able to get in a year. If you start reading today, I guarantee that you will see a major improvement in your life.
Morning routine & writing
You can write about anything you want. It can be a gratitude journal, it can be the things you want out of life, it can be your progress journal. You can write whatever you feel like writing about. Including writing in your morning routine will help you capture ideas. The process of writing something down helps you think through and understanding it better.
