Create an Amazing Morning Routine for Happiness All Day Long

You probably have several rituals in your life. You go to bed at the same time every night. You drive the same way to work each morning, take the same route home every evening, and have a routine for your daily workouts. But how does having a good morning routine increase your happiness?

I have seen in the past how my happiness is directly related to my morning routine. If my morning routine is off, I am often “off” for the rest of the day. I feel disorganized and stressed.

You probably have several rituals in your life. You go to bed at the same time every night. You drive the same way to work each morning, take the same route home every evening, and have a routine for your daily workouts. But how does having a good morning routine increase your happiness?

It is important to create a morning routine because of the way your brain is hardwired. The human brain loves standard operating procedures and reliable routine.

Those people who map out their lives with routines and schedules tend to be healthier, they get more done, and enjoy less stress. You can do the same thing by creating your own morning routine.

First, write it down! Write down what your perfect morning is. From the time you wake up to the time you step out the door in the morning. Having a plan gives your brain the ability to work on autopilot.

Try setting a timer. This is a great way to remind yourself to transition to the next goal in your routine. Use your phone so you know you will hear the timer when it goes off and be realistic in how much time you need to complete each task.

Add in meditation, a good workout, and healthy breakfast to your good morning routine.

If the first thing you do each and every morning is meditate for 10 minutes, your brain eventually understands what is coming next. If that activity, that part of your ritual, follows meditation with a morning workout, and then dressing for the day, each of these habits stack upon each other for predictable results.

Having a good, repeatable routine each morning means you will experience less stress and more happiness throughout the day. Being happier each day is priceless and it all starts with a good morning routine!

  1. I keep thinking that my family needs to revamp our morning routine, but we haven’t gotten to it. My kids are extremely early risers, so I will never be able to get up before them 🙂 I’m hoping as they get a little older, there will be more opportunity to create a peaceful morning with routine. Its been a struggle convincing my oldest to stay in his bed until 6, but we’ve finally conquered that one!

  2. We don’t have a morning routine because our mornings are different every day. I homeschool, but my son goes to public school for a few classes but only on Blue Days. I have lots of drs appointments and they are all over the place. We have several other things going on, business issues, and my dh works crazy hours so every day is new.

  3. Love this post. I also begin each day with meditation. Then, coffee (and in the summer I sit out on my porch to drink it and listen to the birds). During the school year (I’m a teacher), I then get ready and head off to school. In the summer, I work on my blogs for an hour or so, then breakfast, and then more work for a couple hours. Setting myself up each morning in a routine really helps me focus for the rest of the day.

  4. As someone who has evolved into a “morning person” I am in complete agreement with this post. A good morning routine, whatever that looks like to you, does set the tone for the rest of the day.

  5. I am not a morning person, so instead of stressing out about getting things done in the morning, I focus on getting things done when I am most productive which for me is the afternoon and evenings.
