Daily morning routines for a healthy, calm and higher-achieving life
We all have habits. Our habits combine to form routines that play out every day for us. Finding and adopting the healthy daily routine re-energize us and help us to regain wasted time. Our regular schedule of actions consists of all of our habits; these actions structure our day and make the vast difference between performing at peak efficiency and struggling to make it through a poorly planned day.
So many of you send me so many excuses. Sorry, I can’t get them and even don’t want to bother myself trying to understand them. I am traveling around the world, changing places every three days or week, and I can easily apply those routines listed below in my life. Willpower is the single most important keystone habit for individual success. Let me show you how I perform every single morning.

Early wakeups. Becoming a morning bird makes us more efficient, happier, and boost our life energy. Our time is an invaluable asset. Highly successful people take it up a notch by waking up at 5.30 am. Believe me, if you hop out of bed without hesitation (no snooze!), you’ll make time to fit in a workout or yoga practice, meditation, and healthy breakfast eaten in a slow pace. It is easy; you can train yourself to wake up earlier by incrementally waking up 10 to 15 minutes earlier each day. Not only will you have more control in your early hours, but you’ll also have more opportunities to do things that matter the most.
Do you have to get up at 4:00 am to be successful? No! You do need to get up early enough to accomplish your most significant tasks to make yourself more productive throughout the day.
I never snooze, as soon as my alarm ring I wake up to start my day with a glass of lemon water. Pour freshly squeezed lemon to your glass and drink it, don’t prepare it a night before, it will lose vitamin C. Now, enjoy a refreshing start to the new day! Lemon juice reduces our body’s acidity levels, boost our energy, and prepare stomach to better digestion for the whole day.
I write a gratitude journal (my red journal always sleeps with me), the three things I am grateful for the last day and three sentences of gratitude for a new day. It takes 3 minutes maximum. Remember, fulfillment is about desiring the things that you already have and be grateful for them. By identifying the blessings, I am thankful for I become even more optimistic about my life and it improved my outlook in life. You can start with at least one thing that you are grateful for, and then count your small wins.
I take a moment to forgive and forget. Keep your journal by your bed (can be the same as your gratitude journal) and take a few minutes each morning to pour into it anything or anyone from your life that you want to get out of your mind. It can be an excellent mental release as you forgive those who have challenged you. It’s essential for your well-being that you forgive yourself for any mistakes made or failure you had. Now, you can start fresh a new day feeling great about yourself. Get it all out into your diary pages and free your mind from negative thoughts.
I take a few minutes to meditate and clear my mind, while still in bed.
Every morning I try to keep myself calm and let my inner peace guide me. It takes only a few minutes to say a prayer or to meditate to keep my morning tranquillity. Focusing on breathing, observing my mind, observing my body, and feeling alive – it is a beautiful experience. If you feel like, you may even recite an empowering mantra during your morning routine.
At 6 am I start my yoga self-practice. It takes me roughly 75 min. Before I was more into morning cardio workouts, jogging or fitness session but since I started my journey with yoga and dived deeper into its philosophy, I practice yoga every morning, and it completely changed my life. As I started doing it every day, I noticed so many other areas of my life changing. Daily yoga practice inspired me to move cross-country and completely reinvent my life. Yoga is not only physical exercise, getting back to the root of yoga- the physical aspect is just one of eight parts of yoga. It is really about connecting your mind, body, and soul. If you focus on connecting your breath to every movement you take and be fully present on the mat, it makes your whole body relax but at the same time forces you to hone your focus. Do you think that you can’t be good at yoga, learn it slowly. It’s all about your individual journey. By sticking to morning yoga sessions or other activities, you will improve your energy levels for a whole day. After that practice, a shower taste better 🙂
After my yoga and meditation practice, I pay attention to my significant relationships by sending a quick message to my beloved, family and friends. It can be a quick message to your mum sending that you love her or shooting a few words like ‘I’m thinking of you’ message to someone you like, love and appreciate. This little practice gives you the long-lasting benefits throughout the day. Being kind to others will make you happier and more confident. Professional relationships are equally important to cultivate, so you can start your day by giving a compliment to you co-mate.
Design and visualize your day.Around 7.30am just before my breakfast time, I ‘design’ my day by writing short points of my “daily schedule” of how I want my day to play out. It gives me a feeling of my unique day’s creation. I also try to imprint that ritual before I go to bed each night. Before I fall asleep, I shut my eyes and visualizes anything I want to happen or achieve the next day as having already happened. It allows me to go into the next day with full power and confidence that it is already a good day. Again, it takes me only 8 to 10 minutes. You can list the biggest three task for a day. Take just a quick moment to design and imagine the three main things you want to achieve tomorrow and refresh it during your morning writing moment. Please make sure they are achievable things that help you to higher up your efficiency.
I give myself an around ‘a power hour’ for my breakfast time. And yes, I am starving! It is one of the most important
The one thing I never do during my power hour? I am not checking emails and social media; my phone is still on offline mode. By 8.30 I am ready to start my day with a smile on my face.
The first of my business related tasks is to tackle the hardest one. If you have a job hanging over your head that needs more willpower, the trick is to focus on it at or just before 9 am, our willpower peaks around that time.
Stick to your routines by continuously practice them every single morning, don’t skip weekends! There may be a few things that ought to change in your day. Don’t rush. Changing too many habits at once can be painful and demotivating. You can pick one routine at once, and work on that for a week, another week add another one or two. Take baby steps. Stay motivated and achieve whatever you want. The biggest mistake I see people doing with habits is by going big. You don’t go big, ever. You start small with your habits. You can’t change your entire life at once, but you can gradually improve your lifestyle and routines within the month. All these little actions you take that seem so insignificant are however of huge value. Choosing to perform them would be an everyday choice for better. Trust me that will have a high impact on the positive exercise of your willpower.
