How to Start your Day?
Your morning routine is important. This sets the tone for the entire day. If you can improve your morning routine you can improve your overall productivity and performance.
No matter you are a student or a working professional or an entrepreneur or a full-time homemaker it will equally important for all.
Here are a few things that can add to make your morning routine better. (This my almost my personal routine). It is not a one -size fits all kind of thing, you can have your own depending upon your needs.
Your night routine.
Yes, your night routine has a great impact on your morning routine. Fixing a sleeping time will help for sure. It is ok to breach that time once in a while but there must be a time that is fixed for all other regular days.
Before you go to sleep, you can plan a broad strategy for the next day, just write the broad goals or targets for the next day, don’t go into the details. You must know what your next day looks like.
At this time you can also review the performance of your current day.
It is very important to measure your performance on daily basis.

A great sleep leads to great mornings. Sleep for at least 7 hours. You will wake up with fresh energy. Unnecessary compromising on sleep is not a sustainable practice.

These are cues or things that help you get out of bed in a good mood. For me, music works. I wake up and play some of my favourite songs and this keeps me going. Me and Chikoo (My younger daughter) enjoy this part of the morning together.
Luke-warm water is the best, this is the first thing I consume after I wake up and after that, I go for a coffee (no milk, no sugar), I prepare this myself and this again helps me get charged up.
Some physical activity
Either with my coffee or sometimes after finishing it I Stretch and do some basic workout, it lasts for 15 to 30 minutes depending upon my feelings at that time, Here again, my trusted partners are music and chikoo. In between this stretching cum workout session I do dance with chikoo.
Practice mindfulness for atleast 5 minutes. Sit-down focus on your breath and don’t try to fight with your thoughts just let them flow.
Taking a quick shower gives you all the freshness you are looking for the entire day.
I hope this will help you in making your morning better.
