1. It starts your day focused on you.  

When we immediately start focusing on others, we set the precedent that we’ll always put others before ourselves.  But before you answer emails, or wake the kids up for school or even begin to think about work, you’ve got to focus on yourself. 




By consistently performing those actions that you take on, you will consistently remind yourself that you’ve got to take care of yourself first before you can possibly be effective at helping others.  

2. It helps you to focus on what is important

Perfectionists don’t continue to get back on the horse every time they get knocked off. When you do the same thing every morning, it doesn’t matter if you royally messed up today. Maybe you ran really slowly this morning or you burned the eggs. It doesn’t matter. You’re going to get up again tomorrow and do it all over again.

Morning routines teach us how to be persistent — how to keep pushing through failures. The fear of failure can’t hold you back, because if you do it every day, you’re inevitably going to fail once in a while. But that’s OK. You’ve got a routine, so you just get up the next day and start from scratch.

 

 

3. Morning routines are a reset button.

No matter how horrible the day before was, you know that you’ll have a reset button in the morning. The morning routine becomes an almost mindless activity to start every day. It becomes a ritual. It becomes a meditation.

You begin to look forward to time to yourself where you can just let go of the stress from the day before and do your morning routine. It’s your time to unwind and relax, no matter what else is going on in your life.

We have all day long to focus on others—and we usually spend most of it doing just that. So why not set aside 30 minutes every day for yourself? Why not start every day reminding yourself that you’re most important?

As for me, I’ve noticed an unbelievable difference. 

I wanted to read more, get fit and feel more in control of my life. But I also feel more calm, more centered and more at peace with my daily work flow. I’m getting caught up and feeling more relaxed, yet more productive. I’m able to focus and be more present with my friends and family. Most importantly I just feel an overall sense of well-being.

Want your life to be even more awesome?

Replicate the habits of successful people, of those that you admire. It stands to reason that if many successful people such as Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Tony Robbins, and Barack O’Bama all swear by their morning routine, you might want to emulate them and do those things that they do!  It’s okay to copy people, it’s not like we’re in high school anymore. 

An easy morning routine is the perfect way to start! Get relatable tips and advice to create your personalized morning routine on YouTube. And, don't forget, it only takes 21 days to make a habit!  When you wake up every morning and consistently strive to improve yourself, you reduce stress, gain confidence, and learn persistence.

Maybe it’s just me, but that seems like a pretty good reason to start a morning routine. ;-)

Psssst: So I when I decided to take action, I somehow stumbled upon Hal Elrod, author of the best-selling book, "The Miracle Morning" available on Amazon. It’s a long video at 1:22, but plan ahead and squeeze it in sometime; I highly recommend it. To view it, click here.
