Before we get started with this blog post, take a few minutes to reflect on what your daily routine currently looks like.
What do you do when you first wake up?
What do you do before bed? How do you feel when you wake up?
Do you feel you are a morning person?
Share it in the comments so I know what your current day looks like and we can see the progress.
Night time routine
“Your morning mindset starts the night before”
Have a good night routine to set yourself up for a good night sleep. Get yourself organised with a to-do list and schedule for the following day, organise your clothes and do whatever else you need to so you can fully relax knowing you’re ready for tomorrow.
Add self-care into your evening. I always finish all business activity at 9pm. After this time I don’t go on my phone or laptop, I use this time for reading, journaling, meditating or anything else that promotes self-care and puts me in a positive state before sleep.
When I wake up I know exactly what I do as my morning routine, I keep it the same every day so it sticks as a habit and I don’t have to think to do the activities daily. This is what my morning consists of:
Your morning can look however you want it to, if you enjoy exercise then add a workout to it. If meditation or a mindful walk is more your thing then do that. It has to be something that you enjoy doing in order for it to have a positive impact.
I don’t do all these activities every morning because I have to, I do it because I want to. If I’m not enjoying a certain activity I remove it from my morning routine and I recommend you do the same. You can always learn new things and add new activities into your morning, do your research and find what other people like doing. Try them out and if you enjoy it then add it to your morning and see how you find it.
Put together a schedule for your morning to keep you on track, set the alarm earlier to make time for this before you start your day. Let me know in the comments what you’ve added to your morning and how it’s made you feel. I guarantee it has improved your mindset and your life like my new morning routine has.
