Unveiling the magic of spring morning routines

A well-structured morning routine is a game-changer. Let's learn a little bit more about the magic of spring morning routines.

  1. The importance of establishing a spring morning routine: A morning routine helps to set us up for the rest of your day. In spring, this routine means you can make the most of early daylight and energy-boosting weather.
  2. How a spring morning routine can boost productivity and overall well-being: A good morning routine can kickstart your productivity and promote an all-round sense of well-being. Springtime is packed with positive energy which can be seen both in the lengthening of the days and in the new life sprouting all around us. This can actually help to boost the likelihood of you building a morning routine you can stick to.
  3. Differences between spring morning routines and routines in other seasons: Each season has its own set of unique characteristics. In spring, your morning routine can involve outdoor activities and begin to harness the motivation that comes with the new season.

Steps to help you create your perfect spring morning routine

Each of out spring morning routines will undoubtedly look a little different. An ideal morning routine comes down to personal preferences and priorities, after all. But it doesn't have to be overcomplicated. Here are three key thinking points to help you get started on your mission to build a sustainable spring and summer morning regime:

  1. Mix up the different elements of your spring morning routine: Whether your routine includes exercise, mindfulness practices, eating a healthy breakfast, or positive affirmations, the key thing to focus on is aligning it to suit your personal needs. Your springtime morning routine should establish a positive tone for the day ahead.
  2. Craft a routine that satisfies your lifestyle, wants, and needs: When creating your morning routine, aligning it with your lifestyle is a must. Whether you're an early bird or a night owl, remember to work in activities that allow you to cement a routine that works for you and is sustainable long-term too.
  3. Invest in a comfortable bed and optimise your bedroom for sleep to secure success: A good night's sleep can help to make your morning routine more successful. But having a comfortable bed and a sleep-promoting bedroom environment is key for anyone looking to improve their overall sleep quality. By ensuring that your sleep support system and the atmosphere in your bedroom is optimised for sleep, you'll improve your chances of being able to stick to a productive and positive morning routine.

Key things to work into your spring morning routine

Looking for inspiration? Here are some of the top elements to consider working into your fresh springtime morning routine:

  1. Get a good night’s sleep. Set yourself up for a successful morning by remembering the importance of a good bedtime routine. And be sure to heed the essentiality of a supportive bed and mattress too.
  2. Skip the snooze button. While you might be tempted to have just five more minutes in bed, that 5 more minutes can quickly turn into half an hour. Save yourself the struggle of falling behind in the mornings by avoiding giving into that temptation.
  3. Drink a glass of water. Hydration is a key component for your health and overall wellbeing. Drinking water is a great addition to your morning routine.
  4. Stretch. Stretching in the morning feels good. It helps to reengage your body after a restorative sleep and is great for getting you moving.
  5. Get outdoors. The best thing about springtime is that the weather is usually starting to get reliably better. Mornings are lighter and brighter, and we encourage you to get some natural vitamin D and set your circadian clock. You could simply sit outside with your morning tea or coffee. Or, take a quick 10 minute stroll.
  6. Exercising. Not everyone has enough time to do a full workout in the morning, but even 5-10 minutes of exercise is enough to help you feel great. It boosts our mood, ability to concentrate, and helps to wake us up. Not only that, exercise is also great for cardiovascular and overall health too (1).
  7. Enjoy a healthy breakfast. Eating a healthy breakfast gives you the fuel you need to see out the rest of your morning. A simple bowl of oatmeal, some overnight oats prepared the evening before, or a quick smoothie are all great ways to eat healthier in the morning.
  8. Spend some time on self care. Whether it’s a quick shower or a 20 minute skin care routine, self-care is a great addition to a spring morning routine. Self-care is also linked to better mental health (2).
  9. Positive affirmations. Minimise self-doubt by incorporating positive affirmations into you morning routine. Set yourself up for a positive day every day and you’ll benefit from decreased levels of stress too (3).
  10. Meditation. Practicing mindful meditation can help to improve concentration, boost productivity, and set you up for success (4). Not tried it yet? Give it a go by working it into your new Spring morning routine!
