Are you a morning person? 

Sometimes I find it hard to answer this question because I’m as much of a night owl as I am a morning person!

As my chartered accountancy exams approach at a speed of 15 hrs/day, my mornings are half of the time groggy, unproductive and messy. The rest are, well, Gold!

Surprised? Let me tell you how:

To kick start a great day full of energy, I follow my morning rituals to make sure I leave no stone unturned to make it as productive as it can be. Morning routines are not just the foundation for your day, but also instil in you a sense of purpose, peace and a stronger foothold for the accomplishment of your day’s goals. 

At this point, for me, time is of the absolute essence as I do not have a single minute to spare owing to my exams. All my day’s hours are accounted for the day before and a little up and down in the same messes up the whole routine. So, to make sure that I follow the schedules I make, I try to wake up, at least, half an hour earlier.

So, here’s how I turn my mornings from good to gold:
  • Wake up at 5:30 a.m. to my favorite tunes.
  • Drink 1L water.  
  • Splash cold water on the face. 
  • Brush teeth.
  • Morning tea.
  • Exercise for 30 min. 
  • Do Yoga or Meditate for 10 min. 
  • Complete my morning schedule (study).
  • Breakfast, mostly cornflakes/chocos with milk.
  • Shower.
I have been following this schedule for a month now and this sure makes my mornings happening. 
Not only does it ensures a great start of the day, but also helps me put my time to the right use. I wrote this post in the morning using the extra time I had! πŸ™‚

General tips:
  • Wake up at least 10 minutes earlier. 
  • Drink lots of water and take a walk. These activities set the metabolism going and energises your insides, doing away with the drowsiness.
  • Drink tea/coffee. A little caffeine in the morning is a sure shot booster.
  • Keep your phone off-limits.
  • Instead of loud beeping alarms, set your favorite mild tunes. Snooze, you loose. 
Recently, I received this beautiful hamper from Colgate that has helped me all the more in making my good mornings gold.
