Ready to improve your Morning Routine for 2018? I know I am because I am always looking for ways to better my morning routine. My morning routine is constantly evolving and changing, and that’s okay because I am also evolving and changing just like you are.
So, we’ve got 3 easy ways that technology can aid in your in your quest to improve your morning routine. I used the areas of personal development, meditation and exercise because those 3 things definitely need to be included into your morning routine.
1. Personal Development / Growth
You are responsible for protecting your mental kingdom. And, from personal experience the best time to do this is first thing in the morning. Go ahead and eat, exercise, shower, etc. Just don’t wait until 3:00 pm in the afternoon before filling your mind with positive things; too much will have already happened. To be fully on top of your days it is best to nourish your mind sometime close to after you wake up. Just know this — the sooner the better.
Being able to find different ways of building happiness and feeling more positive emotions in yourself is a critical part of your coping skills that will affect all aspects of your life. And, it’s super easy in this day and age to find excellent high fiber brain content that we can feed our minds with.
Of course my obvious first choice would be: MorningCoach. You must be listening to MorningCoach otherwise you wouldn’t be here right?! MorningCoach is a fantastic way to start your day off on the right mental foot. Along with JB providing you daily coaching, tips, hacks, encouragement and support, we also aim to afford you the chance at having 15 minutes of a momentary decrease in stress and a hopefully get a few smiles from you!
2. Meditation Apps For Your Smartphone
Being able to calm your mind is really a superpower. Calming your mind is not only about switching it on and off from the hustle and bustle of life. Once you are mediating consistently, it will also change the way you see the world and helps to unlock your true potential. There are numerous benefits you can receive from meditating and having a mindfulness practice.
Stop, Breath & Think is a great one if you are new to the mindfulness and meditation world. And, so is Calm.
Headspace is mediation made simple. Buddhify is another one you might want to also check out. All four apps mentioned here are available on IOS and Android. And, I know there are many, many, MorningCoach members that meditate, so if you have a personal favorite please let us know in the comments section below! We’d love to know what has helped you.
3. Exercise Apps
Life is all about motion; it’s constantly moving — and so must you! A lot of people (including myself!) are not able to hit the gym every morning, so it’s vital that you find easy alternatives that you can do.
For instance, I am currently learning the ancient practice of Qigong — and for free! It’s similar to Tai Chi in that it has very slow flowing moments incorporated with deep breathing. I found numerous educational videos on my Amazon Prime Video account and I do this on days I can not make it outdoors for a walk.
Here are some apps (for IOS and Android) for you to check out:
Sworkit: they have guided workout plans for any level including cardio, yoga and strength training.
Couch to 5K: this is a training program that has helped thousands of beginning runners move from the couch to the 5K finish line. WOOHOO!!
CARROT Fit (taken from their website) is a sadistic AI construct with one simple goal: to transform your flabby carcass into a Grade A specimen of the human race. She will do whatever it takes – including threatening, inspiring, ridiculing, and bribing you – to make this happen. CARROT kicks off the epic journey towards a healthier you with her Weight Tracker and her 7 Minutes in Hell Workout. These are just the first of many planned “fitness modules.” Others, such as Deathmarch 5K, are coming soon. (This one is only available on IOS right now.)
If you are fairly active already, then you might want to check out Strava.
Either way you go about it, make sure you improve your morning routine for 2018. How you start your day has so much to do with how you feel and how your day goes.
So, how are you going to improve your morning routine for the upcoming year?
