How do you create the perfect morning routine?
While there are a myriad of resources, articles, and books on this topic I think that it can often be difficult to know where to begin. I have compiled some of my favorite ideas and articles about how to incorporate a morning or evening routine that works for you.
If you enjoy reading about what other people do in the morning (as I do) you should really head over to the website “My Morning Routine.” Each Wednesday they post the morning routine of a different person (entrepreneurs, writers, artists, and everything in between) and you can even submit your own!
Another great tool that I love is the 5 Minute Journal. I have actually written a blog post about it so make sure to click below to learn more.
My Favorite Books about Creating the Ideal Routine:
The key is to be patient with yourself and to be willing to try many different things. Everyone is different and what works for one person might not work for you. Therefore, try out a variety of habits until you find something that you can commit to.
Here are a few suggestions:
Exercise (I prefer a short walk)
Tackle a big task
Listen to a podcast
Mantras or Affirmations
Pick one and see how it goes. Don’t try and create the perfect routine all at once. Instead, choose one area that you think you’d really enjoy and make it a habit. Then, choose another area and keep working at it until the next area becomes a habit. Eventually, you will have a really nice routine in place that sets you up for success for the rest of the day.
