A good morning routine allows you to start your day in a calm and leisurely manner. Especially if you aren’t a morning person, having a solid morning routine ensures that you can tackle anything that life throws at you through the day.
Now, we’re not saying that you need to hold yourself to a strict timetable right when you roll out of bed, but doing things in the same order helps build habits and lowers risk of stressors like forgetting your lunch at home or wearing mismatched shoes! In fact, starting your day with a stressful, haphazard routine might make you feel like you’re playing catch-up all day. Instead, start with a relaxing habit, try to do everything in the same order, and watch your day – and your mood improve.
Below are some suggestions to incorporate into your morning routine, pick your favorite and start tomorrow!
