Did you know that motivation is something you can easily switch on?
Adopt this morning routine and you will never have problem with motivation.
Morning sets the tone for the whole day.
First let’s define motivation, it is the condition of being eager to act or work. It is so simple and yet we have such a problem with motivation, like it’s some special skill only accessible to rare people.
So how do we find motivation, how do we become excited about work?
We need a right state of mind and body, a good morning routine that will send us ready and eager to tackle our business and do all we need to do that day.
This is the first day of the rest of my life and it will be great.
1. Wake up on time
📷Make a habit to wake up every morning at least 2 hours before leaving the house or starting to work. This will give you enough time for all morning rituals that will send a message to your mind that it is time to warm up the engines and get to work.
Morning should be time of mental and physical preparation for the day. Making a habit of early waking up will have a big impact on your productivity.
2. Bring in THE SUN
Light sends signals to your body that is morning and it is time to wake up. Turn on the lights if sun is not up yet and start with your morning routine.
📷Drinking enough water must be part of your morning routine. After whole night without water our body is dehydrated and most important thing in the morning is to drink enough water to recover. You feel bad in the morning? These are the symptoms of mild dehydration:
Sounds familiar? No wonder you lack motivation. Make a habit of drinking a glass of water first thing after getting out of bed and see how your body will improve dizziness headache tiredness dry mouth, lips and eyes.

4. Activate body
📷Light workout is a great habit to incorporate in your morning routine. During sleep your body doesn’t move much and it can feel heavy and numb. Short workout improves circulation, activates body and brain, boosts metabolism and releases endorphins(feel good hormones).
If you don’t have habit of exercising do at least light stretches or 30 seconds running in place or jumping jacks.
Anything to move that body little bit will do the trick. It is very important to warm up body early in the morning and send fresh blood to brain, you will be amazed how much your concentration will improve.
5. Morning meditation
📷You’ve probably heard about morning meditation, but why do you actually need it? I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve asked a friend how they were doing and heard “busy” as the response. Everyone I know is busy. I’m busy. There are a million things demanding our time and attention every single day. I think most of us spend our time running as fast as we can just to keep up. The act of meditating causes the pituitary gland in your brain to secrete endorphins. We know about endorphins. They make us feel good, emotionally and physically. Meditation also enhances activity in the area of your brain that’s associated with positive emotions and experiences. Some studies suggest that meditation helps combat depression and anxiety, while others say that regular meditation may improve pain tolerance.
6. Eat the breakfast
📷You must fuel your body and mind for them to be in top form. No excuses, your habit must be to eat a healthy, nutritious breakfast every morning. Improvements you will feel and see will amaze you.
7. Quick talk
Find your morning positive thoughts and say them to yourself. Even if you don’t believe in power of positive thoughts or affirmations do them anyway, if nothing your confidence and mood will improve.
Have a habit of saying your sentences before you leave the house.
For example you can say something like this:
"I choose to think positively and create a wonderful and successful life for myself"
Blend this morning routine with your usual morning activities and feel your motivation increasing day after day.
And remember your future is created by what you, Do your future self a favour and work hard today.
