Q&A morning routine

Q&A: how to create a morning routine that energies for the day.

Question: “Hi Tomas, how can I create a morning routine that energises me for the day?”

That’s a great question! Morning routines can be powerful tools in setting the tone for a successful day.

Let’s get into it.


A well-crafted morning routine acts like a launching pad for your day, giving you a head start with energy and focus.

It primes your mind and body, setting a positive tempo that can carry through your entire day.

It’s important to customize your morning routine to suit you, and your lifestyle so that you wake up not only on the right side of the bed but also with the right mindset to handle whatever comes your way.


While there are all kinds of prescriptions and protocols for how the perfect morning should look like, I found that those can sometimes get out of hand and become more of a burden than a good start to the day. 

To build a morning routine that truly energises you, it’s essential to focus on activities that stimulate both your body and mind and that you incorporate elements that you enjoy and that motivate you to get up and get moving. 

The goal is to start the day right, wake up your body, energize your mind, and cultivate a sense of well-being that boosts your mood and productivity from the start.

Don’t be afraid to try different things to see what suits you best. 

⚙️ HOW

Here are practical tips to get you started:

1️⃣ Be Consistent With Your Sleep
Set a consistent wake-up time that aligns with your body’s natural rhythms and stick to it, even on weekends (if possible 😉). Regular sleep time will improve your sleep quality, and you’ll feel better in the morning.

2️⃣ Hydrate Your Body
As soon as you can, have a glass of water to rehydrate after a night’s sleep. If you’re dehydrated, your body and mind can’t give their best. 

3️⃣ Get Moving
Incorporate at least a few minutes of physical activity. This could be stretching, yoga, a quick walk, or a more vigorous workout depending on your fitness level and preferences. Physical activity not only wakes up your body but also releases endorphins that boost your mood.

4️⃣ Engage Your Mind
Spend a few minutes on a mental activity that engages you. This could be reading, writing in a journal, or meditating. The key is to choose an activity that feels more like a pleasure than a chore.

5️⃣ Plan Your Day
Finally, review your schedule and prioritize your tasks. Knowing what’s ahead can help reduce anxiety and make your day more manageable. Layout your clothes, prep your meals, or pack your bag as part of your routine to streamline your morning.

⏱️ NOW

Kickstart your energized morning tomorrow!

Tonight, decide on a wake-up time and set your alarm.

Lay out your exercise clothes, or place a book on your bedside table to make your morning activities as accessible as possible.

Remember, the essence of a great morning routine is in its regularity and personal relevance.

Let your morning energize not just your body, but your enthusiasm for the day ahead.

Hope this helps.
