Morning Practices for a More Productive Day

By Matilda Davies

Implement these 5 steps into your morning productivity routine

Who among us wouldn’t love to tick a few more boxes off our to-do lists every day? The way you begin your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day, and your morning routine can have a big impact on your productivity levels.

There are a few key practices for your morning routine that can help you do just that.

Getting up in the morning
A good morning routine can set up the tone for a more productive day,
so implement these five key morning practices to increase your productivity levels.

1. Meditate

Meditation has been linked to reduced stress and anxiety, better sleep, more energy, an increased sense of wellbeing, decreased blood pressure, and increased immunity. What that means for your to-do list: more done.

Begin your morning with a simple ten to fifteen minutes of meditation, your evening self will thank you later.

2. Exercise

Like meditation, exercise also offers a number of benefits for those who struggle with anxiety and depression, and it can also provide you with more energy for your day. And by getting your exercise routine out of the way, you can create more mental space all—there’s no afternoon or evening workout hanging over your head.

No need to pay for a gym membership or brave the cold and dark of the early morning, there are plenty of at-home exercises you can use for your morning routine.

3. Don’t hit snooze

Your body needs time to wake up. If you eat up your morning by continuously hitting snooze, you’re throwing away valuable time for not only allowing your body to wake up, but time that can be used for getting your day in order.

4. Don’t skip the coffee

Everyone’s favorite chemical, caffeine, is a powerful stimulant that can help fuel your day. A morning cup of coffee is a great way to stimulate your senses, wake you up, and even reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. Plus, some evidence suggests that the smell of coffee can even reduce stress.

Coffee can be both, a powerful stimulant and a relaxing part of your morning routine.

5. Wait until you get to work to...well, work

Lack of work-life balance is a sure-fire way to kill productivity. So restrain yourself from checking emails until you get to the office and don’t take work calls at home. By reserving your morning for meditation, exercise, a quiet cup of coffee, a few moment of solace, you can ensure you have enough mental energy to take on your day with all you’ve got.
