Yes this might mean you have to go to bed slightly earlier as you need to make sure you have the right amount of sleep as this is vital for your body and to make sure you get the sleep you need.
So start by waking 15 minutes earlier you will feel no difference to start with and it’s a great way to start, if you like go to bed 15 minutes earlier.
- Keep it very simple to start with
When you first start don’t try to pack to much in to your morning routine, doing so will make it feel packed and to much to do this then can have the opposite effect and make you feel panicked and stressed “how will I fit all this in”
Start with 1-2 morning routines then add to them as and when you think you can, remember it does not matter if it is just two as that’s better than none.
- Make sure your morning routine you look forward to
There is no point having a morning routine that you fear and dread because once you do, the whole process wont work. Make sure your morning routine is filled with things that you want to do.
- Rate on your own as well as enjoy the voids.
Remember your morning routine should not be a race so do not race from one routine to the next, each one should be taken slow and enjoyed. If you find yourself doing this, then stop and reevaluate what you want and why you might be racing along.
- Start slow.
So when adding these morning routines into your morning plan do it one at a time, take your time, don’t add 3-4 to start with go one at a time and take maybe a week or son adding the next until you feel comfortable then think about adding another one.
This is not a race so take your time.

What I do is a few press ups or weights that’s it just enough.
