Simple Morning Routine For 2021

Simple Morning Routine For 2021

Sue Faunt
I've always wanted to create a simple, but effective morning routine and it's been one of my goals for 2021. After a month of research, trial and error, I've found one and I wanted to share it with you.⁣

I knew it needed to be simple, I didn't want to spend an hour before jumping into my day. But I wanted it to be impactful and have meaning. It takes me about 13 - 18 minutes every morning. The first 5 I do in bed after waking.⁣

1. Every year I establish 3 simple overarching goals, basically my WHY and HOW of what I'm trying to accomplish. They are personal, so I won't reveal them, but they hit my most important growth areas in health, financial and lifelong education. They are only a few words each and I write them down every morning.⁣

2. Next I write down one thing I'm grateful for.⁣

3. I listen to a 10 minute motivational YouTube video, there are a million out there. Just search "morning motivation" or "motivational video". I like Motiversity and MotivationHubTalks.⁣

4. Next I write down some affirmations, such as "Dream Bigger", "Play All Out" or "Be Consistent" (I always have a notebook and pen on my nightstand). Usually in a area I need to work on and a simple message on how I can excel.⁣

5. Now I close my eyes and visualize my day. This helps me organize my flow and sets me up for a successful, productive day. I can also see areas where I may get distracted/sidetracked and how I may avoid them.⁣

6. I get out of bed and make my bed.⁣

I'm always ready to hit the ground running at this point and I've found my productivity increases dramatically when I follow these steps. There's been days I didn't do this and I found myself off track and off balance.⁣

Do you have a great morning routine?? Please share it in the comments, I'm always looking for new ideas!
