If you haven’t read the first one, please click here! Last week’s post provided an in depth look at morning routines and the value they provide.

 

Benefits of a morning routine

So, following on the heels of last week’s post read it right here on the definition, usefulness, and the importance of a morning routine, let’s get into the benefits of a morning routine.

  • Discipline – Though we may view the word ‘discipline’ in a bad way. We all need discipline through structure, strategy, and planning. Many of us do not plan, strategize, or organize our lives. This leaves us coasting and existing for days, which turn into weeks, then months, and eventually years.

This type of living has left many people filled with regret, disappointment, discontentment, scarcity, and eventually wishing for a do over.

Disclaimer:
Before we get started with this post, this topic will be discussed across two back-to-back post because of the importance of this topic.

 

Do you have a morning routine?

Do you have a morning routine? Or do you roll out of bed, rush to get dressed, and race out the front door?

Or are you a night owl? Even being a night owl can give you space to prepare for the next day.

A morning routine, as the name suggests, is a routine or habit that you practice every morning upon waking.

But let’s face it, everyone is not a morning person (I am, but my husband isn’t). This habit/routine can be done the night before. The goal is to build a routine that fits your lifestyle, schedule, and personality.
