Know Your Lifestyle
There are many morning routines out there each of them tell you tons of different ways to embrace a better day and life, but the fact is each woman has her own lifestyle and according to it she plan and practice a specific routine, you probably found yourself unable to follow a specific routine although you challenged yourself and did everything the right way. That is why it is better for you to know how your life goes and then set a morning according to this, for example, if you run a blog you might have lots of tasks to do every day and you probably work up late for some nights, so you won’t be able to wake up early in the next day. You may not have time to exercise or watch your favorite show too so, arrange your day according to your needs and life flow and stick to a working plan and a healthy morning as long as you can.
Schedule Your Day
It is hard to have an organized day if you have your own business and work, everything may get mixed up and you probably end up finishing one task or two. It is always better to schedule your day at least a night before, get a paper note so you can reach your to-do list easily and start writing down things you need to accomplish the next day so you don’t get rushed up or confused at the morning, all you need to do is picking up your note and start finishing up your tasks one by one.

If you still want to go with your phone alarm disable the snoozing feature and put it away so you can wake up easily. Another thing that might help you to have better sleep and better morning is putting your home in the sleeping mood, when you get closer to your sleeping time lower the lightning into a calming and relaxing mood also lower the brightness of any device you use or turn into the night mood, this will send some signals to your mind in order to make you sleep.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day it supplies you with the energy to start your day in the full, ready, and productive version of you so don’t shorten your meal on some juice or smoothie go with the whole thing and enjoy what you eat. Eating isn’t only for health purpose, it is also a way of treating and enjoying your senses so don’t avoid or be ashamed of. Let your breakfast be healthy and enjoyable by including healthy and delicious food you love, for example, if you like having cereals on breakfast go for it but try to include fruits and vegetable salad besides to give you more energy and have that sense of fullness so you don’t get hungry very soon.
Break The Routine
It might be a strange tip for some as we are talking about maintaining a better morning routine, but having a productive morning doesn’t mean to have a boring morning, as we mentioned before keeping the excitement and enjoying the little things help you to have a fresh, healthy, and full of energy morning. If you have breakfast at home, practice at the gym, walk your dog, take an ordinary bath every single morning you might lose the excitement and give up on waking up early as you do the same things over and over again. So instead of following a boring routine, break it once awhile with simple steps and moves like having breakfast with friends for a day and enjoying it alone at a restaurant or place you love for another day the same for exercising, discover new sports once a while and challenge yourself through, practice in the garden or go for a run around the block.
