So start by leaving bed earlier than you have to. Even if you’re not a morning person, make this sacrifice before you can see the benefits of a morning ritual.
2. Immediately Do Something.
In order not to go back to bed, which is quite tempting in the early hours, take action. It doesn’t matter what that is, you just need to move your body and engage your mind in an activity so that you can stay awake and actually begin your day.
Make your bed, for example. Stretch. Brush your teeth. Put on your clothes.
3. Keep Morning Pages.
Each of the things on this list takes less than 5 minutes, and that’s the beauty of it. A morning routine is a combination of super easy and quick tiny habits, but the overall effect is fantastic.
Place a notebook and a pen beside your bed the night before, so that you can grab it in the morning and write down a few paragraphs. If typing is easier for you, then do this.
Morning pages are a great practice that helps you clear your mind. It’s nothing more than putting pen to paper and sharing what’s on your mind.
Write about your plans for the day, jot down a few reasons why today is going to be a great day, say what you’re grateful for, or else. This will boost your positive energy.
4. Have A Quick Workout.

5. Drink A Glass of Water.

Here’s a practice for your mental and spiritual health. Start small if you’re a newbie. Just sit down, breathe deeply and try to quiet the thoughts in your mind.
Think of a positive thought and focus on it. Let go of anything else. Enjoy the silence and peace around and within you, notice how you’re relaxing and leaving the tension and stress behind.
Meditation, even if it’s just for a few minutes, has a healing effect. It lowers your blood pressure, makes you happier and more calm in general, boosts your immune system, and lets you concentrate more easily when doing your work later.
