Blast Off Every Day with a Motivating Morning Routine

Start your day out right with a morning routine!

“The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.”Mike Murdock

Are your mornings exciting? Do you get up in the morning anticipating a great day?

The way you start your morning sets the thermostat for your day. If your morning starts in a positive, uplifting manner there’s a 90 percent chance the rest of your day will be the same way too.

But if you start out your day in the other direction your day can be just plain miserable.

While some people start out their day thinking “Oh God its morning?” don’t you think that it would be better to start your day out thinking, “Thank God it’s morning”?

Of course!

For years I’ve had a regular morning routine that helps me get me ready for the day.

I’ve found that a good morning routine will improve your mental alertness while giving you the kind of mindset that will help you take on nearly any challenge you face in a calm, relaxed manner.

It will also make you a whole lot more fun to be around.

Your morning routine will jumpstart your day, allowing you to take charge of every aspect of your life.

While, like all habits, it will take a little effort to develop, it will give you dividends well beyond the investment.

Here are 7 guidelines to think about when creating your morning routine:

1. Wake up and get up!

To start your day out right you need to invest time in your morning routine.

Many people set their alarm clock for the last possible second. They might even hit the snooze button several times.

Not only does this routine interfere with your sleep, jumping out of bed, getting ready as fast as you can and then rushing out of the house is not good for developing a positive mindset.

• Try setting your alarm clock at least 45 minutes earlier and then getting up when it goes off.

While you’ll probably have to experiment to find your proper time, you should allow enough time be able to get up and get through your morning routine with plenty of time to spare.

2. Drink Lots of Water

Many years ago I read a book about developing Chi (internal power). It said in order to keep your body healthy you should drink about 3.5 liters of boiled water every morning.

The purpose, they said, was to rehydrate your body while cleansing it of toxins.

I found that 3.5 liters was just too much water to put in my stomach at one time. On top of stretching my stomach to what felt like its limit, I also had to go to the bathroom nearly every 15 minutes.

But if you’d like, feel free to try it. I remember the author swore by it.

Because of that experience I don’t make a practice of drinking quite that much water but I do regularly drink about 24 ounces of water every morning.

The reason you should drink water is because after 6+ hours without any fluids, your body needs it.

Make drinking a big glass of water one of the first things you do every morning and see how much better you feel.

3. Practice a Short Exercise Routine

Whether you choose 20 minutes on the treadmill, a walk around the block, or some light calisthenics, do something to get your heart beating and your blood moving.

This will wake up your mind and body!

My exercise routine involves practicing about 15 minutes of Yoga and another 20 to 25 minutes of Qigong (an internal Chinese martial art). If you’d like to learn more about my morning exercise program or Qigong send me an e-mail or call me.

• No matter what you choose for your exercise routine it will wake you up and help you keep awake at work.

Another added benefit is you’ll likely drop a few pounds, which can help you feel great.

4. Practice Quiet Time

While I use my Qigong as my quiet time you can meditate, go over your goals, or just relax.

By having a few quiet moments you eliminate that rushed feeling most people have every morning.

You might want to use this time to read a motivation book or work on a Sudoku puzzle.

5. Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Starting the day out right means taking the time to eat a healthy meal.

When you wake up you haven’t eaten for more than six hours, and probably a lot more than that.

You have been fasting. That’s why your morning meal is called “break fast”.

By eating in the morning you give your body the energy it needs to start your day and it will also give you the momentum you need to make healthy food choices throughout the day.

• On top of giving you energy, many health experts promote eating a good breakfast as a way of getting into better shape.

6. Review Your Day’s Schedule       

As you look over your schedule visualize what needs to be done. See yourself performing each task easily and effortlessly.

• Also, take a mental snapshot of what your day will look like.

Do you have any meetings with important clients? Do you have to talk with anyone on your staff? Are any projects due?

• When you review you day in advance, instead of showing up at work and trying to figure out what’s going on, you’ll go into work with a plan of action.

7. Make Your Morning Routine a Habit

Most experts say it takes about 30 days to form a new habit.

So for 30 days practice following your morning routine, even on the weekends!

Studies have shown that if you practice your habits daily they are much easier to form.

Commit to practicing the same morning routine every day for the next 30 days!

A Morning Routine Can Change Your Life

If you’ll invest the time, what you’ll find is a morning routine can make a huge difference in your life.

Make your morning routine unique to you. Find out what makes your morning routine something that makes you want to get out of be and get your day started.

Remember – It’s Worth It!

At first, this might seem like a lot to do. It will certainly be more than you’re used to doing and that’s why it will seem like a lot.

But it’s worth it.

Start by going to bed a little earlier.

As Benjamin Franklin wrote in Poor Richard’s Almanac, “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.”

Shift an hour or two from your night to your morning routine.

Get up a little earlier.

You’ll get a great jump on the day and your mind will be ready for anything that comes your way.

Use your morning routine to help you live the life of your dreams.
