It’s no secret that the early bird catches the worm. Many of the world’s most successful people start off their days early. They want to be ahead of the game and make the most of their day before most of us are even out of bed!
If you’re in the mood for an early-morning routine that will seriously change your life, here’s our 6-step guide for starting your day off on the right foot:
1. Jump Out Of Bed And Don’t Procrastinate
The number one rule is to stop snoozing your alarm and basking in your bed until you know you’re going to be late! The sleep you get while snoozing has been shown to make you more tired, not less.
So bite the bullet and get out of bed first go! Stop thinking about how much you deserve a couple of extra hours of sleep and focus on how much your body and mind will benefit from a 5 AM alarm.
2. Hydrate Your Body
Start off your morning in the best possible way: drink a glass or two of water. Your body and skin will be very thankful! If you’re feeling particularly daring and hot water isn’t too much of a hassle, try some hot water and lemon or detox teas to get your digestive system going.
Meditation can help you start the day full of positive vibes. There are several different methods of meditating, so try and develop your personal style. Choose a spot and position that you find comfortable for yourself. You can perfect it as your early mornings accumulate!
4. Listen To Music
Music will give you the energy you need to take those early mornings by the horns. Put some positive, happy, and bouncy music on that will lift your mood – and crank up the volume! Dive into your favorite songs to find all the motivation and energy you need.
Whether you’re more of a gym bunny or a yoga-at-home person, find some time in the morning to exercise. It will wake up your whole body and mind to prep you for the day ahead! An extra benefit is that it will also give a boost to your metabolism (diet tip here!).
6. Read & Write
Check out all the latest news in a few minutes to keep yourself updated with what’s going on around the world. Visit your favorite digital magazines and blogs (including us, of course!). Start keeping a journal – write down a couple of personal thoughts on or an inspiring quote to focus your mind for a few minutes.
Now you’re ready to kick-start your day! What are your favorite morning routine tips to hit the ground running?
