How would you currently rate your mornings? Are you waking up and getting ready for the day in a way that makes you feel peaceful, productive, and optimistic about the day ahead, or are you among those who feel frazzled and like they’re forgetting something as they’re running out the door five minutes late again?
Creating a perfect morning routine is less about the exact things you do and more about finding what works best for you.
Find Your Optimal Wake-Up Time
Creating a perfect morning routine starts with waking up at the right time every day. Most people decide when to wake up based on external factors like what time they need to leave for work or when their kids wake them up. And there are too many people who are not getting enough sleep!
But have you ever thought about when your optimal wake-up time is? Sometimes waking up earlier can leave you feeling more productive and energetic than sleeping an extra 30 minutes.
Experts recommend that those between 18 and 60 get at least 7 hours of sleep, those 61-64 get 7 to 9 hours of sleep, and anyone 65 and up to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep. So getting a minimum of 7 hours of sleep seems to be ideal for most adults.
Are you making sure that you’re not only waking up at an optimal time but also going to bed at the right time so that you can be fully rested when your alarm goes off at your optimal wake-up time?
To find your optimal wake-up time, try getting up at different times. Some people who get up at 7 am to make it to work by 8:30 might find that going to bed a little earlier getting up at 5 or 6 works better for them. So if you’re feeling tired in the morning, make sure you’re trying out different wake-up times to start your perfect morning routine.
Do What Energizes You
Once you’re up, have a plan to get ready for the day in a way that energizes you. This can be an activity that provides you with physical energy, like going out for a run or a walk or doing some morning yoga.
But it can also be something that energizes you in the sense that it motivates you and gets you excited for the day, like turning on a specific morning playlist so you can listen to your favorite songs while you get ready.
Of course, don’t forget your morning coffee, tea, matcha, or whatever beverage you enjoy in the morning to bring you energy for the day.
Add Some Self-Care
Making time for self-care as part of your new morning routine doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Just doing a few things for yourself that make you feel good, relaxed, or less overwhelmed will make the start of your day so much smoother.
Morning meditation is a popular form of self-care that can get you ready and feeling more balanced through the rest of your day. Another idea would be to light one of our Earthgifts Aromatherapy candles and read a few pages of a book while you slowly enjoy your morning coffee.
Even a small amount of time, like five to ten minutes, dedicated to self-care as part of your morning routine can make a big difference in making sure that you’re prioritizing yourself.
Hopefully, this article has provided you with some ideas. Your perfect morning routine is going to be different from anyone else.
Creating an ideal morning routine should include enough time to be able to add in activities that not only energize you but allow you to prioritize self-care during the beginning of your day.
Now it’s your turn to decide what to include in your perfect morning routine so that you can start your day in a way that works best for you and leaves you feeling ready to take on each day.
