How to win your mornings?

Mornings are one of the most important parts of your day, Its a part of the day which can help you fuel yourself to be active and productive as your day progresses. Every go-getter needs this fuel. A productive morning routine can help you stay focused and engaged with your targets for the day and what you want to achieve (Or, when you don’t feel focused, a morning routine gives you awareness of your goals and redirects you towards them)

A morning routine is a self-investment, provided by you and for you.

And without it, things can be ugly.

Tips to create a productive morning routine :

Wake up on a dedicated time: It is a known fact that regular sleep patterns reinforce circadian rhythm and build a healthy sleep drive. You should select your wake time, including weekdays or weekends. Once you have set this time see if it is feasible. You don't have to become a morning person if you are a night owl. But setting time can help you organize your self and help you create a starting point to the morning routine which enhances productivity.

Engage in physical activity: Engaging your self in any physical activity in the morning helps you boost your metabolism as you are resting overnight and have good energy. One of the biological reasons for working out in the morning can be effective increased levels of testosterone (especially in males) that happen first thing when you wake up. Overnight our bodies begin to increase their testosterone production. Because of this, our testosterone levels are highest upon awakening. Taking advantage of this morning boost of testosterone can help build muscle more efficiently. Morning workouts also help in building consistency as your daily schedule can change according to your work needs and working out in the evening when you are tired after a long day at work just doesn't bring the 100 percent commitment out of you.

Eat a good breakfast: A good breakfast is as important as the physical activity you engage in. After you have worked out it is about 10 hours that your body has not gotten proper food (provided you sleep for 8 hours) and it needs the energy to carry out the tasks over the morning. It is very important to have a good breakfast so that you are not starving while catching up on work early morning which can be counter-productive.

No Screen-time until breakfast: This helps you keep your self focused towards your routine and not get diverted towards any tasks you might have to do (Don't avoid them if they are important). Try not to engage with your phone or laptop until you complete your morning routine, Things might seem urgent but believe me, once you engage in a good workout and give your self-sufficient food the energy to solve any problem becomes 10x.

Challenges you may face :

Being two-minded: This is a feeling which most of us go through, It is a situation where you have to choose between sleeping more or just pushing yourself to go get that workout in. Most of us fail to convenience ourselves and end up being lazy but the ones which win over their mind by pushing hard are the real go-getters and are able to see results.

Stress, tension or conflict: This is very normal. Most of us go through a period where we don't like our job, have family problems or any other thing which makes you feel your life is miserable. There is no reason for you to stop doing something which affects you in a positive way. A good morning routine is that positive thing that will give you the strength to win over those tough times and believe it or not that feeling of winning after falling down is amazing. So don't ever let external things affect your routine.

Physical collapse: If you are going through a situation where your body is going through some physical problems, Do not stretch yourself in this situation. It is better to take rest and not workout while you still maintain you're wake up times and nutritious breakfast.
