1. Know your WHY
Ask yourself why you want to establish this morning routine. Are you trying to study more efficiently to get better grades? Do you want to apply for a job, start your days with a better mood or live a more healthy life? There are many resons for trying to have a good start into the day. Know your motivations and find this intrinsic drive to continue. Knowing your motivation makes it easier to stick to your routine.
Easier said than done. Discpline divides those who take action and those that never do. Starting your morning routine requires discipline just as learning a new language or studying for a maths exam. This endurance will make it possible to turn an abstract idea into reality. An important aspect of being disciplined is having realistic goals. It’s also nice to break down big tasks into smaller ones. This makes it easier to reach your goals and motivates you.
3. Keep going
In addition to discipline, it’s important to keep going. If you get used to doing something regularly, it will get easier to stick to those habits. So don’t become discouraged if you haven’t developped a fix routine yet. Just keep going!
4. Start now
It’s tempting to procrastinate. However, this will unconsciously build up stress. If you start with your plans or tasks right away, it’s not only done faster, but you will also increase your motivation. So, don’t wait for the perfect week or morning to start your routine. Start tomorrow morning with your new routine.
