Start Your Day with A Great Morning Routine

Inspirational Quotes

You had such a great day planned. But, before noon, you are overwhelmed and exhausted.  You can change that by creating an intentional morning routine that sets you up for success.  This routine has four easy steps, and as always, you can plan it the day before.  Elevating your morning routine will reduce your stress and anxiety, which will help you prevent, delay, or successfully manage a chronic disease.

“Morning routines are powerful and set our pattern for the rest of the day,” Lee Chambers, an environmental psychologist and well-being consultant in Britain, told HuffPost. “A worry-filled morning will often flood into an anxious afternoon.” Conversely, starting the morning with intention creates a sense of calm and confidence that makes the rest of the day seem more manageable.

Start your day with some light stretching; as a yoga teacher, I love a nice gentle yoga sequence to begin my day.  If you do this consistently, you will warm up your muscles, increase your flexibility, and get your body ready for your cardio activity. Mix up your workouts to avoid a workout rut.

Here is a list of activities you can choose to include in your morning routine.  Pick three more:

  • Take ten minutes and do a thought dump
  • Make up your bed
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Include ten minutes of gratitude
  • Plan your day
  • Create an affirmation recite it each day
  • Layout your clothes and dress your best even if you are staying home

Start with four, and do not be afraid to trade them out if they are not working; your morning routine should evolve with you and set you up for a fantastic day.
