Morning routine is extremely important to your productivity!

  1. I know the title of this article is quite radical, but I did this on purpose to get your attention. I'm sure this article will help you.

  1. You probably know the saying “Get out of bed on the wrong foot”. The nice thing about proverbs is that they always add up. If your morning is not going smoothly, you will find that the whole day will not run smoothly!

  1. How often does it happen that something goes wrong in the morning. You have lost your agenda, too little time or too much stress! In the first 90 minutes of the day, you set the foundation for the rest of the day!

  1. It is therefore logical that you should spend the first 90 minutes of the day as best you can without any form of friction or stress! In this article you want to share with you what only 5% of all people in the Netherlands do differently than usual and so that these people have much more energy, success and "happiness" than the rest!

Make yourself strong in the morning

  1. The first hour and a half set the tone for the rest of the day! You want to organize these 90 minutes as well as possible! You can read how to do this below!

  1. When you wake up your body is the â € œ restâ € attitude, before you want to do anything that day (work, children to school or study) you are completely “awake” first. To wake yourself up completely you have to split the principle of “wake up” into 2 parts.

  2. When you wake up your body is the â € œ rest â € posture, before you want to do anything that day (work, children to school or study) it is important that you are completely “awake” first. To wake yourself up completely, you have to split the principle of “wake up” into 2 parts.

  1. Wake up physically

  1. When you have just woken up, you still feel faint and very tired! This is not surprising, your body has just charged for 8 hours! To make you physically strong, the body needs the right foods (especially in the morning), so it is also important that you eat a well-balanced breakfast!

  1. An artificial light can also help you wake up more comfortably and suffer less from confusion and fatigue in the morning (1).

  1. Your body also needs some exercise. Doing sit-ups or doing your 50 push-ups for 10 minutes is enough to make yourself strong! It's important to warm up your body for the day, as it were!

  1. "Starting the oven"

  1. Besides nutrition and exercise, there is another important factor that is very important! Maintaining your body is the 3 rd point how you can make yourself strong! When you get out of the shower you always have more energy, don't you? Always do this every morning! Make yourself physically strong!

  1. Waking up mentally

  2. Mentally awakening

  1. Besides the physical part, it is also important that you are mentally strong. How often does it happen that when you have just woken up, you feel “brain dead”? Your brain has been on “non-active” for 8 hours (it is active, but subconsciously active) and therefore has to wake up again! This can be done very easily by letting your brain work for a while. Reading a book, the newspaper, or even a sudoku is all it takes to get your brain on!

The morning routine

  1. If you want to get everything out there every day, it is wise to have the best possible morning. This is easier said than done, which is why the so-called "morning routine" exists.

  2. If you want to get the most out of it every day, it is therefore wise to have the best possible morning. This is easier said than done, which is why the so-called "morning routine" exists.

  1. This morning routine is like the agenda of the first 90 minutes of the day in which you will make yourself 100% fit, so that you have enough willpower during the day! This sounds a bit vague and that's why I give a concrete example of my own morning routine below!

  1. Maybe this is just a bit too much so I'm going to give you an example below. I've had the same morning routine for about 2 years now. Of course I have adjusted / supplemented and "tweaked" these over the years, but at least then you have an indication of what a complete morning routine can be.

  1. I have to tell you this morning routine is tailored to what I like. Of course you can copy this literally, but this does not mean that this will work well for you. Every person has a different lifestyle, so this morning routine may not suit you. What you can do is use my morning routine as some sort of default and "cross out and / or add" here and there.

Every person has a different lifestyle, so this morning routine may not suit you. What you can do is use my morning routine as some sort of standard and "cross out and / or add" here and there.

  1. My routine:

  1. Before I even turn on my phone or computer, I make sure I do my morning routine as best I can. Through the water / breakfast I ensure that my body gets the necessary nutrients, the "sports quarter" ensures that I am physically strong, and the newspaper or the book ensures that my brain is also awake!

  1. Research also indicates that the RISE-UP routine, a routine that includes exercise, showering, and even calling a friend, helps you become more alert (2).

  1. This all looks pretty simple, but to do this really well it is necessary to commit to the first weeks. Most importantly, you make it as easy as possible for yourself.

  1. Before I go to sleep I put a glass of water next to my bed, make sure the youtube movie is ready. All necessities in the bathroom are replenished (toothpaste, deodorant etc. etc.) and I try to prepare breakfast as far as possible.

  1. By doing this you actually ensure that you reduce the chance of friction and frustration in the morning. How annoying is it when you are in the shower and the shampoo is used up? Or the toothpaste? This is very tricky and can sometimes really affect your “mood”. This will make your morning run less smoothly!

  1. Get everything ready!

  1. If you feel like you ended up setting up your morning routine like this, you may be able to do the same last night! Before going to sleep, there are a number of things you can do to improve your sleep! I don't have to tell you that a good night's sleep is important to your productivity. One can amplify the other, so when you have a good night's sleep AND a good morning routine you will get twice the energy!

Why is this difficult? Building Routines

  1. New Year's resolutions often don't work and this is not surprising! If you ask someone at the end of the year if they have good intentions, they often come up with complete laundry lists! A few weeks later you are interested in whether that person actually manages to keep up the good intentions. In most cases you will notice that practically none of these good intentions are left! And this is actually not surprising.

  1. The good intentions are actually a lame excuse to change a bad habit. The reason we call this process good intentions is because it sounds so negative otherwise.

  1. Which sounds better? “Get New Year's Resolutions” or “Get Rid of Bad Habits!”

  1. Why? Why is it so difficult to implement good routines in your life now? This question it 2 answers.

  1. 1.     Wanting to achieve too much, too quickly

  1. 2.     Most people don't know how to do this

  1. We humans want everything fast, fast and faster. We sometimes think that not only can computers "multitask", but humans can too.

  1. I'll tell you right away: We humans cannot multitask, and we never will! Our brains simply cannot handle this. The fact is that when you are busy with 2 or more things at the same time, you can never put your full focus on 1 thing!

  1. That's why we learned from home that we have to do everything step-by-step! You cannot watch TV and work at the same time! Do we want to do something right? Then you will have to focus 100% on that.

  1. If you have multiple New Year's resolutions, you can never focus 100% on the different ones. Do you want to implement positive routines in your life? Then do this step by step.

  1. If you want to implement a good morning routine, you will have to do this step by step. You cannot change your entire morning in one go. Chances are that you will not make it in the end.

How do routines work?

  1. The great thing about routines is that we don't have to think about it. Once we have learned a routine, it will go without saying! This will therefore not cost you any more energy!

  1. And this is exactly what we have a limited amount of each day: Energy!

  1. If you are going to learn a new routine, you probably won't have any problems for the first few days. But after 3 to 4 days it becomes more and more difficult to maintain those routines (for example, exercising for 10 minutes in the morning)! This is because you are not used to doing this. Your body is going to resist itself! You will notice that during the first 20 days you have to commit yourself to exercise in the morning, for example. But after about 30 days you wake up and without knowing it you lie on the floor and do 100 sit-ups. After 30 days you have mastered the routine, and you can start implementing the next routine.

Tell me!

  1. I am very curious about what other people have for their morning routine. Because of this I may also be able to sharpen my own routine! The nice thing is that every person is different, so every morning routine is different!

  1. I get a lot of questions from people who would like some more information about a good morning routine. That is also the specific reason why I decided to write one article about this.

  1. What would help is that when people themselves have experience with a good morning routine, they leave tips so that other people can get their inspiration from it. You can do this in 2 ways!
