Using a Digital Planner to Help with Morning Routine

How you start each morning has a huge impact on your success – or lack thereof – for the rest of the day. The best thing about cultivating your healthy morning routine is that it’s not one size fits all, and you can experiment and customize it for whatever fits you and your lifestyle best. Here are our best suggestions for cultivating a healthy morning routine:

Hydrate

After a full nights rest, I wake up thirsty! The first thing I do is drink a full glass of water. This not only hydrates me, but also cues my body that it’s time to function again.

Exercise

Physical OR mental! It seems like people either love or hate morning physical exercise. My vote is for the latter. My workouts are personally better in the midday when I feel myself hitting the afternoon slump. But I still get my morning exercise – in the form of mental exercise. Each morning, I spend 10 minutes meditating and/or journaling anything I feel I need to get out and onto paper. I use the habit tracker portion of my Key2Success Planner to make sure I’m staying on track with all of my fitness goals.

Eat a healthy breakfast

Studies have shown that making a healthy choice for breakfast often leads to making healthier choices for lunch, dinner, and beyond. I know that donut is appealing, but it’s most likely going to have you sugar crashing right about the time your coffee wears off. This can affect your focus and motivation for the rest of the day. Start things off right with a healthy and filling breakfast to power you through the day.

Have a designated space for work

With so many people still working from home we know first hand that working from the kitchen counter, the couch, or even from bed is so appealing and easy to do. Having blurry lines between work spaces and relaxing spaces can sometimes have a negative affect on your focus. Start your work day from your designated work space – whether that’s an office in your house, a desk in the living room or your local coffee shop. Letting your mind and body associate the couch only with relaxing will really help cultivate a successful working routine and elevate your productivity levels. Not to mention it’ll make curling up on the couch to watch Netflix at the end of the day that much more rewarding!

Plan for success the day before

Hands down, the tip that has best help me cultivate my mornings for success has been planning for the next day the night before. I always take 5-10 minutes at the end of my work day to organize my calendar and task list for the next day. This is where taking the time to set up my ideal week section in my Key2Success planner really pays off.

Make adjustments as needed

I definitely tend to tweak my morning routine based on the seasons. When the days are long in the summer I like to incorporate a short walk into my morning routine, but as soon as the days shorten and temps drop, I trade out that morning walk for a longer meditation session. Different routines and strategies work at different times in our lives. Don’t be afraid to adjust and keep moving forward towards whatever serves you best. The Key2Success Planner has built in Quarterly Check-Ins. These always help to make sure I’m reconnecting with my larger goals of the year and that my current routine supports those goals.

Whatever your healthy morning routine, the Key2Success planner is the perfect tool to guide you and give you accountability along the way.

I came from a Franklin Covey planner. This is everything I have been looking for to replace it with a digital version. I have tried numerous other ways to replicate the process and I can’t recommend it enough.
