Do you often struggle to get up in the morning? Well I know how difficult it is to leave that comfy bed when you’ve to go to work and by hitting the snooze button you make it even more difficult! For you’re hardly left with any time and the whole world seems to be standing in your way!
This is what I’ve faced and I know we all do unless you’re really an early riser, and you deserve a pat on the back my friend!!

  •  While getting ready there would then be an eye liner mishap. You started with a thin stroke but ended up looking as if going for a Gothic themed party!
  • You’ve lost your pen drive or car keys or important documents or all of these!
  • You forgot to charge your phone! Damn how to survive the whole day now?
  • Breakfast- Oh forget it where’s the time?
  • You miss the bus so you take your car (damn flat tyre!). Call up your friends (but they won’t pick up the phone- Murphy strikes again)

And those who know me would be smiling while reading this because often they’ve tried to rescue me 😉 by giving a call early morning just to wake me up or getting me breakfast!! This is what friends are for! Haven’t we all gone through this phase?
Alright, So today I’d be telling you tried and tested things which would make your morning routine from frenzied and hurly burly to calm and prepared one. Become a morning person and get your life sorted! And guys if I can do it, anybody can do it.

A few changes here and there will revamp your morning routine and help you achieve a healthier, energised and a better YOU!

So are you ready for the morning make over? Follow these simple steps:

  1. Pre planning– Sleep a little early and visualise before what you got to do the next day. Do prepare for your breakfast and also the dress so that you don’t stand confused in front of the wardrobe saying I’ve got nothing to wear! Wake up 30 minutes earlier,Go to your garden, balcony or near the window and hear the birds chirping, trees waking up to the mild breeze blowing. Try to absorb the goodness of Mother Nature. Initially it would be little difficult but over the period of time you’d realise it’s amazing benefits. Every second counts in the morning and you’d see how this half an hour will have an impact on your day]IMG_4502 Source: Pinterest[/caption]
  2. Drink as much water as you can– Yes drinking water in the morning has therapeutic benefits. It works like magic, it detoxifies the impurities, keeps you glowing and charged up to fight the day!]IMG_4507 Source: Pinterest[/caption]
  3. To-do and not-to-do list– Write down the things you want to accomplish for the day. It could be as simple as `call xyz’, `buy veggies’, `finish reading the book’ and so on. For not-to-do list, it could be, `don’t look at the phone for straight 3-4 hours’, `I won’t be rude even if the other person is’. Writing down may sound old school to some in the time in today’s world. But the feeling of making a journal and scribbling down with the pen is something else! Well I’m myself a typing person but I still believe that Pen is mightier than the keypad.IMG_4499
  4. Ever heard of 1 minute Workout? – Haha I know that sounds little funny. But indulging in any form of exercise in the morning is necessary to stay energised. Jumping jacks, stretching, planks, push ups can give you the boost to shine all day. Well a minute does get extended to 3-4 minutes. So when you don’t have the luxury time in the morning, you can surely count on this instant Workout.IMG_4504.PNG
  5. Basic beauty regime– It’s important to wake up your skin too. Gently exfoliate and even the cells would say Good morning Beautiful! Follow CTM (cleansing, toning, moisturising). Dab a little bb cream, put some gloss, little kohl in your eyes and you’re ready to go! Isn’t it that simple?

By now you know what’s not working for you. And now that you’ve realised so you might as well make a few tweaks that’d make some difference in your morning routine and eventually your life! But often I’ve felt that it’s easy to follow a simple routine but it’s even easier to fall out of it. So be honest with yourself, make it your goal and try to follow until it becomes a habit. And then, you’d always be ready to seize the day.

So guys what’s your morning routine? How do you start your day? Do share below in the comment section?

Stay happy and stay fit!

  1. I am so much more productive and more likely to get out of bed if I plan my day the night before! I write down a list of what I want to do in the day and then allocate time slots throughout the day to do them, it really helps me keep on track 🙂

  2. I always write what I wanted to do today the night before, but if only my body allows me to sleep faster and earlier. I always wanted to be an early bird. Maybe I should use the force to force myself. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I think there’s something to this notion of a one-minute workout. We always set big expectations for ourselves, but even one minute is enough to get the blood circulating. OK. Tomorrow I begin! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Not all bt yes I do few…. Bt cannot do one thing at all .. cannot pen down them so well like u did….

  5. I really enjoyed your article, and it makes me smile a lot 🙂 I love to be organized in the morning and wake up with knowing exactly what are the plans for the next 1 hour. I also start my day with drinking a glass of water and than shower + makeup routine. What makes my day is a fresh homemade fruits juice. There is no day starting without this! The key to get full of vitamins and energy.
    I will try your idea of 1 minutes workout, never had the idea but sounds really good 😀

  6. Great tips! We get up 2 hours before work and love the extra time to connect with each other and drink our morning coffee together. Really sets the mood for the day.

  7. I love this much more than some others I’ve Seen that tell me a 30 min or hour work out in the morning. I drink my coffee and sit out on my porch. The fresh air definitely helps wake me up. I like the to do and not to do list. I’ve always made a to do. But have struggled to stick with it. Partially because I sit on my phone all day. Making a “do not sit on phone all day” may help

  8. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  9. I have to get across my appreciation for your kindness supporting men and women who should have guidance on in this topic.
