How to make the most of your mornings

Nutrition & Wellbeing

Mornings are the first opportunity to set the tone for how the rest of your day unfolds. Here’s how to do it right …

How you start your day affects your productivity. Most great entrepreneurs and leaders throughout history cite their morning routine as a large contributor to their success. Creating a good morning routine can add to your overall happiness, as it carries both physical and psychological benefits.

When you wake up and feel in control of your day, it’s easier to tackle any challenges that may lie ahead. When you’re able to handle what life throws at you, you automatically have more time to focus on your dreams, goals and life in general.

Here’s how to make the most out of your mornings

Give yourself enough time

A good morning routine starts the night before. Plan the amount of time you need to get ready and prep the night before to make sure you have a smoother start to the day. Make sure you have enough time to do things at your desired pace. There’s nothing worse than leaving your house in a bad mood because you had to get ready in a rush.


Self-affirmation is when you shift negative thoughts about yourself into positive ones. It’s been shown to have powerful results. Taking a couple of minutes in the morning to say something positive to yourself will help you overcome self-sabotaging, minimise anxiety and stress, and contribute to a more positive mindset throughout the day.

There’s nothing better than a good early morning stretch. So, why not take it a step further and work some extra stretches into your morning routine? If you’re not a very active person, getting to the gym may be too much of a commitment. That’s okay. Start small, by doing a simple ten-minute stretching routine. You will feel the difference it makes to the rest of your day.

Have dedicated “me” time

Mornings can be busy and chaotic. But they don’t have to be. Try to wake up earlier than your housemates or family, to take care of the things you usually don’t get around to when you’re busy packing lunchboxes or preparing breakfast. A few minutes of “me” time will definitely boost your mood and your morning.

Choose a healthy breakfast option

As the saying goes, you are what you eat. Making good breakfast choices ensures that you make better food choices throughout the rest of your day. You may find yourself too rushed to even make breakfast. Many people believe that making a healthy breakfast takes a lot of time, effort and skill. Luckily, that’s not true. This easy Mixed Nut Bowl recipe is a breeze to prepare and contains Nutrilite TM Balance Within and Nutrilite TM Fibre Powder .
