Impact of a Morning Routine

I love mornings. Each new day brings new opportunities and it’s 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 big impact on the rest of it.

Think of it as setting the tone for your entire day. That’s why making over your morning is so important. It’s about much more than those first few hours.

I’m sure you’ve experienced this yourself. Let’s 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’re 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 can’t 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 get done in 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’d 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 planned to do, too. Chances are that sleeping through the snooze button didn’t 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’s what the old saying about getting up on the wrong side of the bed is about. Let’s 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 your morning. As we’ve 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’d like, but it will also make the entire rest of your day go much smoother.

  1. Usually I have a morning depression everyday !
    I stay around 30 mins or more in bed once I hear my alarm then try to get out of bed and start my day with black coffee to get some focus .

  2. Farah, I was the same…and I’m so much happier now that I can ‘delay’ email checking for a bit later in my morning.

  3. I will start my morning by stopping the snooze button and get up of my bed on the first alarm ring.

  4. I definitely notice a difference when I get up on the first alarm – usually it means I slept well, am feeling refreshed, and am eager to honor my morning commitment to myself. Excited to learn more about making over my mornings so that most of them are this way!

  5. I start my day by checking my work e-mails which is something I really want to change.

    Looking forward to the morning makeover challenge!

  6. When the alarm rings feel I hadn’t enough sleep and there’s nothing important than my dream.
