Morning Routines to Get You Up and Productive

Everybody’s morning routine is a little bit different. Some prefer to begin their day with a walk around the block. Others enjoy a nutritious breakfast. Most of the people I know? They hit snooze until the last possible second, slip in to their work attire faster than Superman in a phone booth, and head out the door in a flash. Unprepared, rushed, and a little out of sorts. The opposite of getting off on the right foot.

It may seem trivial. Sure, you can grab a bite on the way to work and “wake up” on the drive, but the truth isn’t as forgiving. Your morning routine sets the tone for the day that follows. Your increased stress level, lack of preparedness, and that empty stomach don’t exactly scream success.

But fret not my dreary eyed, empty stomached, non-morning people. Today on Healthversed, we’ll break down your morning routine and offer up a few minor tweaks that’ll get you on the right path for good! Today we explore a few helpful morning add-ons to ready you for the daily grind. Let’s go!

Make Your Bed

We get it. It’s hard to think about crisp sheets and throw pillows when you’re alarm is blaring and you’ve got 0.5 seconds to spare. But that doesn’t diminish the task’s importance. Don’t just take my word for it. Take a Navy Seals word for it.

It may seem trivial, but adding bed-making to your morning routine initiates a chain reaction of minor but important accomplishments. You’ve been awake for 5 minutes, and you’ve already completed an important task. Making your bed is easy, fast, and it encourages productivity throughout the rest of your day. What’s more, crawling in to a well-made bed at the end of the night even helps you sleep better.
