Easy to Create a Successful Healthy Morning Routine in 4 Simple Steps
Some people thrive on 8 hours of sleep, others only need 6 hours. I personally do best when I get a full 8 hours of sleep. It is important to get in touch with your body’s clock. The key is consistency. It is best to keep the same sleep schedule on the weekends, or you will risk feeling jet-lagged come Monday morning. With my 4 steps to a healthy morning, it is easy to maintain.
2. WRITE DOWN 3 THINGS TO ACCOMPLISH DURING THE DAY
Tackle the most challenging task first, when your mind is the sharpest. This will also help later in the day when unexpected tasks pull you in other directions. It is good to have a clear plan, so you don’t waste valuable mental energy on tasks that are less important.
Journaling in the evening is also important for your overall health. You can try journaling your desired outcome for the day, or simply write out a list of tasks. I wrote a great article about the benefits of journaling at night.
3. CREATE BUFFERS IN YOUR SCHEDULE
It is important to allow yourself time in case mistakes or emergencies occur. Don’t overbook your daily schedule. Give yourself “buffers” between tasks and appointments. This way, you will never feel stressed going from one engagement to the next. It is best to have a smoother transition, rather than risk burnout.
4. FIND BALANCE
Schedule in time for mental or physical breaks. You can pencil in daily meditation first thing in the morning or get in a quick HIIT workout. Stress gets the best of all of us. By scheduling this “me time”, you will feel more refreshed for the tasks ahead. It truly is about balance and learning to nourish ourselves first. You will notice that once you take care of yourself first, you have more energy to devote to other tasks throughout the busy day.
