5 Morning Rituals to Help You Become More Productive

We all know the saying that humans are “creatures of habit”, right? That’s because we often gravitate towards familiarity and routine. We like to stay in our routines because the potential for something to go wrong is diminished.

You probably have some sort of familiar rhythm to your day. Wake up, get ready for work, go to work, come home, sleep, repeat. Humans like to drop into this cycle on a daily basis to help reduce the potential for impromptu stress.

So what’s your morning routine like? Do you have any rituals to help kick start your day? Sure there are the basic necessities like brushing your teeth, getting dressed, and eating breakfast, but do you ever make time to truly map out your day or better prepare your mind for the workload ahead?

We’ve compiled a list of 5 Morning Rituals to start doing so you can set yourself up for a better and more productive day:

1. Wake Up Early

Set your (Yoga Wake Up) alarm! With the increasingly busy lives of modern society, more time in the morning can change how we view our day to come. When we give ourselves ample time, we reduce the potential for rushing and scrambling out the door. This creates a more peaceful and relaxing morning and gives us time to mentally prepare for the day ahead free from worry and stress. Our Yoga Wake Up app features an alarm clock that you can set the night before! Simply set your wakeup alarm to whatever time best suits you and keep it open over night. The app will do the rest!

2.Take Time Getting Out of Bed

More often than not, once we open our eyes and escape from dreamland, we get up and get moving almost instantly. While this is sometimes necessary to get to work on time, it can leave us feeling mentally disorganized and physically drained (hence the importance of waking up early). It is important to take your time transitioning from sleep mode to the real world, so find something you can do from bed that helps you remain calm and grounded. There are so many different things you can do such as meditate, journal, and perhaps bring a physical ritual into the mix. This brings us to the next ritual…

3. Get Moving

We suggest adding some sort of physical movement into your morning. When we make time to wake up the body, we can take mental note of where the body is at for the day. Ask yourself, “How do I feel today?” Are you more tired than usual? Do you feel physically energetic? Use this information to help prepare you for your morning movement. This movement could be anything. Dance to music, go for a run, do some yoga, meditate from bed! Yoga Wake Up is a great tool you can use to help you get into some yoga movement or meditation in the mornings.

4. Eat A Healthy Breakfast

This is known everywhere as being one of the most important morning rituals. Whether you’re a breakfast person or not, your brain needs fuel to be as productive as possible throughout the day. Since the first thing on our list is waking up early, this should also give you enough time to make yourself a hearty breakfast. Click here for some great recipes to help start your morning off right! At Yoga Wake Up we dedicate at least 1 blog a week to give you healthy, simple breakfast recipes you can make at home.

5. Make A List

Before work (or play), be sure to make a list of short-term goals you’d like to accomplish by the end of the day. Start with the most important things and then work your way down the list. If you’re into it, you could even make a list for before and after lunch! This way, you’ll be able to set a time management schedule for yourself and keep your goals organized all day. In turn, you’ll feel less distracted, more focused and more productive!

We know it’s extremely difficult to change a person’s routine, but we hope you’ll take some of these rituals and slowly start implementing them into your morning. Try doing it in steps. In no time we’re sure you’ll be on your way to a more productive morning.

Erin shows overscheduled, overwhelmed women how to do less so that they can achieve more. Traditional productivity books—written by men—barely touch the tangle of cultural pressures that women feel when facing down a to-do list. How to Get Sh*t Done will teach you how to zero in on the three areas of your life where you want to excel, and then it will show you how to off-load, outsource, or just stop giving a damn about the rest.
