The Impact Of A Morning Routine

Impact of a Morning Routine
I love mornings. Each new day brings new opportunities, and it is a chance to start fresh and do better. How you start your day, or more specifically how you spend those first few morning hours has a significant impact on the rest of it. Think of it as setting the tone for your entire day. That is why making over your morning is so important. It is about much more than those first few hours.
I am sure you have experienced this yourself. Let us use the snooze button as an example. You set an early alarm to make sure you have time for exercise, meditation, or simply some much needed “me time”. You have every intention of getting up and doing whatever you are setting out to do when you set the alarm in the first place. Some mornings - hopefully most mornings - you get up when the alarm chimes and go for that walk, do your meditation exercise, or read a book for twenty minutes. Then there are those days when you just cannot make yourself get up. You hit the snooze button multiple times or turn the alarm off altogether and go back to sleep.
Think about how the rest of those days went. Did you notice a difference in how you felt? How much did you got done on the mornings when you got up with your first alarm? Were you able to do all the things you set out to do? How did those days compare to the ones when you hit the snooze button over and over again?
If I had to take a guess, I would say that the mornings when you got up as soon as the alarm went off went a lot smoother. I bet you accomplished what you have planned to do, too. Chances are that sleeping through the snooze button did not just affect your morning, but the entire rest of your day. You set the tone for how your day is going to go first thing in the morning. That is what the old saying about getting up on the wrong side of the bed is about. Let us make sure we get up on the right side and start our day off in a positive and productive way.
Over the course of the next seven days, I want to guide you through the process of making over your morning. As we have already established, this is an important task and a good thing to work on and pay attention to. Not only will you enjoy your mornings more even if the alarm goes off much earlier than you would like, but it will also make the entire rest of your day go much smoother.
