How do you begin your day? Do you wake up without the assistance of an alarm clock?

When you wake up do you know what day or year it is?

Are you rushing around looking for keys and things when you are getting the kids out the door? The way you begin your day will determine the flow of the day and in turn affect the way you work.

For years I never really paid much attention to my morning routines. I would just do, without any regard for routines or schedules. This type of reckless behavior would not serve me or my business well.

As I have been on my mental health and entrepreneurial journeys, I had to come to realize the importance of creating and maintaining schedules and routines.

Creating a ritual for the morning will greatly maximize productivity for the day. Developing a schedule for my morning has greatly impacted the way that I start and end my days. When I begin each morning on an organized note, I feel much more confident about myself, my abilities and the tasks that I have to accomplish for the day.

Take a moment to think about it.

How do you feel when you have to make an appointment and you have prepared thoroughly and given yourself enough time to get to your appointment?

You feel good, you feel more confident and most importantly you are not burdened with the stress of rushing and dealing with all of the other chaos that goes along with being unprepared.

Creating a morning ritual is not a one size fits all task.

Each routine will look different for each person. It all depends on your goals and what you are hoping to accomplish.

This is what my morning looks like :

I wake up on time, say a prayer, meditate and recite affirmations to myself. I make my bed and then proceed to dress and prepare myself for the events of the day. When I start my day like this, I am in better spirits and I feel much more productive. I not only feel much more productive, I actually am more productive. I am able to control of how things go.

When I start my day on a peaceful note, I know that I am going to accomplish more.

So what are the ways that you can create a morning routine that maximizes your productivity?

  1. Choose a time that you will wake up each morning. Decide on a time that you will wake up each morning, and be sure allow enough time to complete the tasks that you want to complete each morning.

  2. Incorporate some sort of spiritual activity into your morning routine. Whether you decide to pray or read something of a spiritual nature, this will really help you get in touch with yourself and a higher power.

  3. Meditation. Meditating for a couple of minutes in the morning can help you clear your mind of all of the mental clutter.

  4. Affirmations and Gratitude. Begin your morning on a positive note by expressing gratitude for all of the blessings in your life. Affirmations are a great way to be kind to yourself and develop a positive rapport with yourself.
