5 Tips for a Morning Routine

As the saying goes: ‘’There are two kinds of people in this world: Morning people and people who want to shoot morning people.’’ waking up might prove itself hard even for people who want to achieve numerous things during the day.


How do we stay in line with morning masters?


Early risers are often thought of as energetic problem-solvers leading businesses, organizations, or sometimes even nations. Ever wondered how a morning person can get so much done in only 24 hours? We are going to break down a few secrets to being a morning bird even though you find yourself a night owl. Kosio Angelov, the #1 Amazon bestselling author of “The Lean Email Simple System” and the founder of High-Performance Lifestyle talks in one of his articles about productivity, motivation, and inspiration as things to either keep you going or being an illusion for the nowadays culture.


There is no magic recipe for a balanced lifestyle that leads to success rather than inspiration and motivation. So how do you get motivated in the morning? Let’s see them written down:


  • Start gradually. That’s right, you do not have to wake up at 6 AM if yesterday you made breakfast at 1 PM. Set realistic expectations and don’t start with an unnatural hour while waking up early.  Push down with 10-20 minutes your current alarm and observe yourself and your reactions. Keep it going as soon as you see positive results.


  • Put the alarm away from the bed. It’s very easy to snooze it when it’s right next to the bed and also consider the fact that it might trouble your sleep in the long term.


  • Take deep breaths and be grateful. Now that you are up and most likely a bit tired, this is the perfect time to take deep breaths and be grateful for another day. Cliché? Might be, however, if you see it everywhere it means it worked for someone, and being grateful will also boost your morning with positivity and compassion.


  • Reward yourself. Compassion is truly the key to this. You need to stop beating yourself up for not waking up properly or staring at the blank wall for 20 minutes after opening your eyes. You are doing your best and you know it. Pushing harder next time will come naturally as long as you are proud of yourself and maybe add an extra chocolate chip on your cereals for being an early bird today.


  • Eat nutritious food and exercise during the day.


Being a morning person helps you get through the day and improve both your health and efficiency. We are living in a fast-paced environment where even sleep can get you to lose the latest news and trends, therefore, let the mornings inspire you. Let the sun touch your skin and reprogram your brain, inspiration being one of the best motivators. And while you can certainly draw inspiration from a variety of sources around you such as people, nature, books, and magazines, it is not that easy to get your daily dose when you work in a traditional setting such as an office, or even from your home. The little things matter and make the difference, even if you decide to talk to the moon about your latest achievements.


Try to be a morning person for a week and let me know the final results! What inspired you?
