The Power of Morning Routines: Maximizing Your Productivity Every Day


If you want to maximize your productivity, then you need to start by morning routines. When it comes to getting things done in the morning, most people skip breakfast and go straight for coffee. While this may seem like a good way to start the day off right (after all, who doesn’t love caffeine?), it’s actually not ideal if you want to keep your energy levels high throughout the day. In fact, there are several studies showing how important eating breakfast can be when it comes to improving overall health and productivity—and those findings aren’t just anecdotal evidence either! So if you’re looking for some new ways to get things done without feeling sluggish during the day or falling asleep before midnight like so many people do these days… here’s what works:

The morning is the most productive time of your day.

The most utterly and extraordinarily productive time of day, without a shred of doubt, is undoubtedly the morning. The reasoning behind this being that, not only are you completely reinvigorated and prepped for work after a well-deserved night’s slumber, but also because you’ve slept enough to minimize the probability of experiencing any sort of fatigue or drowsiness.

The most magnificent facet of this phenomenon is the fact that one does not even have to step outside of the sanctity of their own home to accomplish a single task in the early hours of the day. All that is required is an insatiable drive for success and some adept time-management techniques, which we will divulge later on.

You can set yourself up for success by getting a good night’s sleep, eating right and taking care of yourself.

  • You can set yourself up for success by getting a good night’s sleep, eating right and taking care of yourself.
  • A healthy body is one that’s fueled by the right foods. And if you’re looking to lose weight, it’s important not only to eat well but also exercise regularly.
  • In order to maximize your productivity as an adult, make sure you get enough rest every night so that when you wake up in the morning–and especially before working out–you feel energized and ready to go!


The body is highly sensitive to changes in your environment and the food you eat.

Your body is constantly changing, adapting, and responding to new stimuli–whether it’s a new job or a different time change at work. Your response to food is dependent on what you eat; how often; how large an amount; how much water with it (and if any); etc.

Before your head hits the pillow each night, it’s time to tune into your personal rhythms and rhythms of nature by getting outside and enjoying some fresh air.

You’ve probably heard that getting outside is good for you. But did you know that it also helps you sleep better, reduce stress levels, and improve your focus? Getting some fresh air before bedtime can help reboot your body’s circadian rhythm so that it’s ready for the next day.

When I was growing up in California, my family never went camping or hiking until after Thanksgiving–and even then we only went once a year! It wasn’t until college when I discovered how relaxing hiking could be:

  • You get more oxygen in your blood (which helps with energy production)
  • You move around instead of sitting still while reading on the couch (which helps prevent back pain)

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and eating it helps you feel more alert and less hungry later in the day.

In fact, studies show that people who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to be successful at weight loss than those who skip their morning meal altogether.

Improve your productivity with these morning routines

The power of a morning routine is that it forces you to get up early and do something productive. If you’re like me, then this can be hard because I’m often in bed by 8:30pm. But if you have a morning routine and make it the last thing on your mind before going to sleep at night, then when the alarm goes off at 7am (or even closer), chances are good that you’ll actually get up without an argument or struggle–and get started on your day right away!

A morning routine isn’t about having everything perfectly organized at all times; rather, it should be just enough structure so that getting dressed becomes part of the process instead of an afterthought or last thing before crawling back into bed for another hour under covers (which happens sometimes).


We all aspire to achieve our utmost potential, and the foundation of this begins with obtaining adequate sleep and consuming a healthy, nutritious diet. If one’s current habits with regards to these two vital aspects of well-being are inadequate, then it is high time to work towards improving them.
