Your morning routine can make or break your productivity for the day. Getting into a productive mindset early can vastly increase the number of things you can get done with your day. We all know how easy it is to turn what should’ve been a productive Monday morning into a fog-filled, hazy slugfest.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at four habits you need in your morning routine to ensure you boost your productivity in 2022:
There’s no wonder that many of the world’s most successful people credit waking up early as being a part of their successful morning routine. Studies have shown that early risers have more time to complete tasks with fewer interruptions and tend to be more alert in the morning.
Waking up just 15 minutes earlier can help you add the following to your morning routine. It gives you more time to get ready for the day and means you’ll be feeling less stressed. Over time, taper this back by 5 more minutes each week until you reach an earlier wake-up time that makes you feel your most alert and productive to take charge of your day truly.
2. Tidy Your Bedroom:
One of the best things you can do when you first get out of bed each morning is to tidy up your room. Spend 5 minutes making your bed, removing clothes and clutter from the floor from the night before, and making your space appear tidier. This provides the motivation you need to actually stay out of bed and makes your bedroom all the more inviting when you decide to go to bed at night.
If you’re working from home, we recommend staying out of your bedroom entirely during the day. You want this tidying routine to become a habit and act as the action that separates sleeping from waking up.
The more you do this; the more your subconscious will begin to associate this action with firing your brain up for the day. This will help ensure you’re more productive in the morning and stop finding a way to head back to bed for a few more minutes accidentally!
3. Daily Affirmations:
Starting your day with affirmations can help transform your mindset and get you into the right headspace for the day ahead. It’s essential to focus on affirmations that make you feel energized and happy so that you can start your day in the right way. Try to say at least 3 affirmations to yourself before you walk out of the door. Here are our favourite affirmations for boosting productivity in the morning:
