The best morning habits require self-motivation. They are long-term rewarding activities, instead of habits that deliver immediate payoffs.

Find a way of tracking your daily activities. A week of tracking would suffice. It is impossible to streamline our mornings without getting to know what we currently spend them on, and why.

Before we start moving things around, it is helpful to find out your definition of the perfect morning.

  • After deciding on the important details you need to integrate into your morning schedule, you are left with making it happen.
  • Don't go through the logistic and piling up excuses, instead dwell on how could you fast track the process.
  • For some, adjusting their bedtime could do...

Build the habit! it is easier when we adopt one habit at a time. Also, we should track our progress, as it takes a while before these activities become part and parcel of our mornings.

Incentives are ways, by which we can motivate ourselves to stay on track. You can promise yourself a treat whenever you reach a milestone.

The key here is not how much you get done in the morning, but the impact of each task you subject your mind to.
