The Perfect Morning Routine

Is there such a thing as the perfect morning routine? 

Having a good morning routine can make all the difference to how we spend our day. 

Whether you like to start with a morning meditation, making your bed, going for a run or sitting in bed with a coffee - your perfect morning routine is what feels good to you. 

There are some things you can do that will ensure you’re off to a good start and that will keep you more accountable and on track towards your goals. 

Good morning 

  1. Drink a full glass of water when you wake up to rehydrate. 
  2. Exercise in the morning - you’ll get those endorphins early and feel motivated for the rest of the day. 
  3. Use your Little Gym Book journal (you’re welcome) to track your progress and remind yourself of your goals every morning. 
  4. Have a healthy breakfast - fuelling yourself the right way will make you feel good and will ensure you’re more likely to make healthy choices throughout the day too. 
  5. Prep your lunch for work the night before - this will give you more time in a morning and you’ll feel good knowing you already have a meal ready to go that’s on plan. 

Simple ways to revitalise your mornings  

If you want to revitalise your mornings and perfect your routine, these simple actions are also a great place to start. 

  1. Drink your morning tea/coffee by the window or in the garden - breathe and get some fresh air. 
  2. Think about what you want to achieve today - cook a meal, finish a project at work, listen to your favourite podcast, check in on a friend, fit in your workout!
  3. Focus on your morning thoughts - write them down, think about what you’re grateful for. 
  4. Listen to the news - being woken by the radio or turning on when you get up will make you feel connected with the world. 
  5. Put on your favourite music - dance and sing whilst you get ready. This is the perfect morning playlist, according to psychologists.
  6. Take a cold shower - this isn’t for everyone but it can wake you up and kick start your morning.
