How Can I Improve My Morning Motivation?

Every morning, you face the same problem: you lack motivation and energy to begin the day in a positive and energetic mood.

We show you how to boost your motivation in the morning. The main challenge is you, or rather your attitude and willingness to change!

You will also find motivational sayings at the end of the article that will inspire you!

Some people begin the day in a good mood and full of energy and maintain this level throughout the day. To be able to enjoy your mornings and start the day calmly but with focus and ideas, you must first figure out why you have trouble getting started.

How to Behave the Night Before

The reasons are frequently found in the previous night’s behavior:

  • Eating too late: don’t eat 2-3 hours before going to bed!
  • Inadequate exercise: Your body requires exercise to function and maintain your vital signs.
  • Alcohol before bedtime: No more alcohol 3–4 hours before going to bed!
  • Negative thoughts before going to bed: Before going to bed, think about positive things and imagine your future in a positive light.
  • There is no structure when planning for the next day. Decide what you want to do the next day and write it down.
  • Sleeping too little: get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.Allow for adequate sleeping conditions, fresh air, and rest.
  • Too much stress the day before: relax before going to bed, for example, through yoga, meditation, or other relaxation techniques.

These considerations are especially important if you have been misbehaving for several days in a row. 

This causes you to accumulate a deficit, making it difficult to get a good start and stay motivated in the morning.

The more you work on these issues, the more barriers to good morning motivation you will remove. So, consider these points carefully!

Early In The Morning

1. Negative thoughts
Negative thoughts are unavoidable when mornings begin with time constraints! The body and mind require some time to get started.

Set aside at least one hour in the morning for yourself! Get up and go to bed earlier the night before if necessary.

2. Avoid news and social media

Don’t waste your morning time on social media or listening to the news on TV or radio! In the morning, this only serves to distract you and steal your focus and concentration.

Furthermore, being confronted with the problems of the world or our peer group first thing in the morning is bad for our brain and a demotivator.

3. Water and fresh air

Forget about coffee as your first beverage in the morning! Drink 0.5 to 1 liter of water slowly instead! Make sure you get some fresh air as soon as you wake up.

4. Stretching

Stretch, stretch, stretch in the morning. Get your body moving slowly and gently to activate your circulation.

5. Exercising your breathing

Sit in a chair and slowly breathe in for 4 seconds and out for 6 seconds, using abdominal breathing.

Repeat for 20 breaths, or more if desired. Consider a positive future and the life that you want to live.

6. Positive thinking

Write down your most important dreams and wishes first thing in the morning! Our minds need to be reminded on a regular basis of what we want out of life. When we write something down, it causes a significant shift in our psychology and behavior because what was once a thought or a dream becomes a reality.

It no longer appears to be a vivid imagination, but rather something that might become a reality!

Recognize that if you always think negatively in the morning and always behave negatively, the same thing will always happen in your life! Change your ways right now!

7. Exercise self-control.

It is pointless to follow and implement the suggestions made here for only one or two days.

Maintain your discipline.

Try to maintain it for at least 7 days! You will notice that your motivation in the morning has greatly improved after this time!

8. Successes

Make a list of your accomplishments based on the new evening and morning routines! Make a list of places where you feel more inspired and motivated!

Before going to bed, read through these accomplishments. This gives you a good feeling and boosts your self-esteem.
