How To Have A Successful Morning Routine
Having a successful morning routine, I believe, is one of the keys to success. I know, it’s a big thing to say, but having routines keeps us focused on task and allows us to be game-changers. And the key to all of that starts in the morning.

I believe the old saying is the early bird gets the worm, so keep reading for 3 things you can do to have a successful morning routine.
A successful morning routine doesn’t just happen, and unfortunately doesn’t just happen while we are sleeping.
It happens when successful morning habits are formed.
1. Start The Night Prior
I don’t have children yet, but I’m sure the chaos of having children running around in the mornings can make mornings a little more challenging.
Maybe you aren’t in that season of life yet either, but running around getting yourself together is a challenge in itself.
So, start the night prior! This will allow you to have a successful morning routine.
I get out my clothing, get my coffee ready for the next day, and get my morning routine together (Bible, journal, pens, etc).
So, the night prior, pick out your clothing, pack your lunch or the household lunches, and get your morning routine prepped the night before. Don’t forget the kids’ backpacks!
2. Read Your Bible Or Devotional
If you aren’t in the habit of reading your Bible in the morning because you like to read it at night or maybe your eyes just need time to adjust to the lack of sunlight, try listening to it on the Bible App. This allows you to be grounded and start the day on the right foot.
If you aren’t into listening or reading your Bible in the morning, start with a short devotional, and don’t forget the coffee!
I love the Lipstick Gospel Devotional. If you buy this book, I do get a commission from Amazon.
3. Allow Time For Yourself
Allowing time for yourself allows you to refocus and to ask the important question,
“Why are you doing this?”
Before you were a mom, a wife, a businesswoman, or a co-worker, you were you.
You created things you loved, spaces you loved, and did things you loved. So, allowing time for yourself is so important.
So, don’t forget why you are doing this. Don’t forget your why.
Maybe for you, your “you time” is working out, relaxing or binge-watching your favorite Netflix show. Who else is excited about the Outer Banks season?
Whatever your “you time” is, all that matters is that you’re allowing yourself time—time to be just you.
Having a successful morning routine is the key to success. It allows you to form healthy successful morning habits and answers the question, “Why are you doing this?”
