10 Simple Morning Time Tips to Have a Fantastic Day!

1. Get Ready the Night Before

The first of my simple morning time tips is such a huge time saver because you have so much less to do in the morning! At night you should pick out your clothes, get your coffee ready to brew, and plan out your breakfast (or have fast and easy options available). Do anything else you can that will save you a little extra time in the morning then you will have more time for yourself.

2. Don’t Use Snooze

I am so guilty of this one! Hitting your snooze button actually makes you more tired because it allows your body to go back to sleep for only minutes before being woken up again. It is such a bad habit to break. My best advice is to set your phone on the other side of the room. Once you are out of bed, it is easier to stay up.

3. Lemon Water

First thing you should do when you wake up (after putting on your robe and slippers) is to go drink a glass of lemon water! It is so good for your first thing in the morning and allows your metabolism to get kick started. Warm lemon water has more benefits than cold, but I love a glass of cold water in the morning (then straight to my coffee). You can make it really easy by having lemon slices ready in the fridge and it has now become a habit.

4. Change your Phone Background

What do you do when you first wake up? If you’re anything like me, you check your phone. I love having an inspiring quote as my phone background because it is such a positive thing to start your day with. I change out my quote/picture pretty often.

Another thing you could do instead of this is find an app that sends you an inspiring daily quote or daily bible verse. Set it so that they send it to you in the middle of the night, that way when you wake up in the morning it will be waiting on your phone screen.

5. Wake up Earlier

This may not seem like a tip that will make your morning better, but it does! (At least it does for me)… I LOVE taking my sweet, sweet time while I get ready in the morning. The more amount of time I have to spend at home, getting things done and preparing for the day, the better I feel. I HATE feeling rushed, it stresses me out so much. Waking up earlier is the perfect solution. Like I said before, I am NOT a morning person at all, but my body is slowly adjusting. Start with waking up 15 minutes earlier then add more and more time until you’re at your desired time.

6. Eat Breakfast

Just do it. Every single day. Eat your breakfast! And do it within an hour of waking up, but AFTER your lemon water! Something light and healthy is perfect for early mornings especially if you have a hard time eating right after you wake up. You don’t need to eat a huge breakfast first thing in the morning, but make sure you get some food in your belly. Then you can have a more filling breakfast a little later on. If you don’t have enough time to make breakfast in the morning check out these 3 super quick options you can have ready ahead of time!

7. Stretch

I underestimated how much stretching or having a small workout in the morning can really help you feel energized all day! If you don’t have a lot of time, at least take some time to do some stretches. It’ll get your blood pumping and get you ready to take on the day. If you have extra time do any kind of workout and I promise you’ll feel so much better.

8. Fresh Air is your Best Friend

I LOVE to take my coffee and breakfast out onto the porch! Its relaxing and the crisp morning air makes me so happy while simultaneously waking me up (maybe that’s the coffee). It’s currently winter and very cold where I live so I am looking forward to the day where I can do this again!

9. Listen to Something While you Get Ready

Most people already do this and it’s for a good reason! I love either listening to upbeat music or a funny podcast while I get ready. It brightens up my mood and fills me with more energy (again that might just be the coffee). If you have a long car ride, that is also a great time to jam out!

10. Have Something to Look Forward to Every Day

The last of my 10 simple morning time tips is a great one and helps not only your morning, but your entire day. While you are enjoying your quick breakfast, cup of coffee, upbeat music, and fresh air; think to yourself about something happening today that you are looking forward to. No matter how small, think of something. Write it down and remind yourself of it throughout the day. It could be what you are having for supper tonight, a TV show coming on, or plans you have after work/school. Find something, anything that you can look forward to in order to help you get through the day.
