Everyone has a morning routine that they follow every morning. Whether it’s sleeping in and rushing out of the house to having something structured, there’s some sort of “routine” in everyone’s life. While some are better than others, it’s important to have a morning routine, specifically one that helps you with waking up and develop good habits.
The reason this is so important is while a lot of people have a good morning routine, a lot of people lack it. They sleep in, skip breakfast, and more.
Seriously we’ve spent so many days where we get out the door with our hair messed up, sleep in our eyes and not feeling the best. If you’re tired of it, you need to get a serious morning routine to get through the day and here’s why.
The first big reason is that having a structured morning routine will reduce stress a lot. When we rush out the door not looking the best, forgetting our keys, it stresses us out a lot. But one of the magic things about a routine is that over time those things we do become automatic.
Think about it.
When you close the door, you automatically lock the door with little thought behind it. You don’t get stressed about it because you aren’t thinking about it because you know you did it already. With a morning routine, it follows the same idea. When you have a routine you do every day, you don’t worry about if you did this or that, and you live a more stress-free life.
The second reason is that over time as you get used to the process you do every day, you’ll learn to do the tasks faster over time. You’ll find nifty hacks to reduce time or you’ll simply develop speed at doing those tasks that you won’t be wasting time figuring out what you have to do next.
Another great perk of a morning routine and sticking to it is you’ll be less likely to forget things. If you make a habit and routine to check that you have everything you need for work, then you are less likely to forget things at work or have to drive back home. A lot of times people forget keys, laptops, or even their own phones. By making a habit of having everything you need ready to go the door can help you in being less forgetful.
One other perk to think about is that the morning is normally the only time in the day that we take care of ourselves. A lot of people have said the first thing they need to do every day is to go to the gym. If they don’t, their entire day is nothing but an unproductive mess. With this in mind it makes sense that if you set aside some time to do some exercise or even meditate, you can make a huge change in your overall life as a result.
The last benefit we want to share is that if you have a morning routine, you’ll also be eating better. A lot of us rush out the door and don’t grab anything to eat. While some may opt for starving until lunch, some will rely on fast food for their breakfast. You don’t need me to tell you that’s not the healthiest thing to be doing, but if one has a morning routine, they often have more time to put something healthy together to bring to the office or have something healthy right at home before going to work.
A morning routine can help in many aspects of your life. Furthermore, the habits that you put into your morning routine can make a dramatic impact on your life as you practice it over time.
