Ever had a dream that set the mood for the entire day?
“Morning routine” sounds boring, but it’s a surefire way to set yourself up for the day in a healthy way. Your moods needn’t be subject to outer circumstances or other people. You’re in control.
Some people claim they don’t have time for a morning routine. However, it’s up to you to tailor your routine to your schedule, and in the following, I’ll help you create the space you need.
Your mission: Determine the perfect morning routine for you and put it in place.

Task 1: Find the perfect morning routine
There are so many things you can do in the morning. Your task is to find out your preferences, so please get a pen and paper, and write down whatever appeals to you. Here are some suggestions to get you started:
- Journalling / morning pages (it’s a thing! Look it up)
- Meditation – try these (5 or 10 minutes is fine!)
- Body care
- Exercise (read Spark! by John J. Ratey)
- Set an intention for your day
- Plan your day
Task 2: Fit your routine into your schedule
Now look over what you’ve written down for Task 1. Is there anything you’d like to add or take out? Take a few minutes to make the necessary adjustments.
The next step is to calculate how long all this will take you, and then count backwards from when you need to leave the house or start working. That’s the time you should set your alarm for.
Too early? Look what you can drop from your morning routine, to make it fit into the time you’ve got. Or think of ways how you can go to sleep earlier in the evening. It’s well worth it for the gains in clarity, emotional balance and productivity a morning routine provides.
