They say the early bird catches the worm, and it seems like people with morning routines are just winning at life.

In our eyes, it appears they had a hearty breakfast of champions with fresh fruit, milk, and juice, dressed professionally with no wrinkles, have a clean cut with perfect hair, and the kids are ready and dropped off to school in time, all neat and tidy before going in to work.

Wake Up With a Mission

If you truly want to have a morning routine that really accomplishes something Laura Vanderkam, time management expert and author of Off the Clock: Feel Less Busy While Getting More Done says this is the secret. - Source

“Think about what would make you excited to get out of bed. There’s no reason to have a morning routine just to have a morning routine,” she told Ladders. “The reason to do it is that there’s something cool you want to do in your life that is not fitting in your life otherwise.

“For many people, that’s something like exercise because it is hard to fit it in the rest of the day or creative pursuits like writing a novel. You are probably too tired at the end of the day to write,  but if you get up in the morning, it could work. Or maybe it’s family time and a dinner just doesn’t work so go for family breakfast. This is anything you want to have in your life that you can’t make space for otherwise.”

 

Marie Kondo your morning

It’s similar to Marie Kondo-ing your life, you are just doing it with your morning. You want to be getting up for something that brings joy into your life. If you are just doing it to say you did it, that is just adding more clutter. 

This new mindset can put less pressure on yourself and your day to figure out what you really want to get out of your morning routine. Going to bed early opens up this wide space for a morning routine. “Going to bed early is how grownups sleep in! If you go to bed earlier, you can get up earlier,” she said.
