change. If something isn’t working, change it! Don’t latch on just because someone else is doing it. The best morning routines are ones that align with what’s most important to YOU!
Here’s how you get started— pick 4 habits and start them tomorrow. Yes, just 4. You can add more later, but it’s best to start small.
Pick the ones that resonate with you the most. Do them every morning immediately after you wake up for the next 30 days.
Remember, no matter what activities you choose as part of your morning routine, it must include the following 3 key requirements
If you choose an activity that doesn’t fulfill all THREE factors, success will be that much harder.
Here are some ideas you can include in your morning routine
There are no limits to what you can do!
I recommend that at first, you wake up an hour earlier than you normally do. This way you won't be stressing about not having enough time for your morning routine or getting stress after because you took time to do something other than your daily to-do list.
You can choose any of the ideas I discussed or come up with your own
You can, of course, choose more than four habits to start with. However, you’re more likely to succeed starting slow and with simple tasks. If you choose something and find out it really isn’t working for you, change it. This is YOUR morning routine; it can be anything you want.
If you need help remembering your morning ritual, set yourself reminders or post notes around your house until it becomes second nature.
Another helpful tip is to commit to new habits for at least 30 days. If you miss a day, make it up by adding a day to your total 30 days.
I hope this helps you get started and on your way to a healthier and happier life! remember, I'm always here to help, if you have any questions on establishing a morning routine email me at ContactToni@drToniCamacho.com and click here to listen to this week's radio show for free.
