Productivity experts have developed numerous proven techniques that if used correctly can not only increase morning productivity but can also help put anyone on the path to a much healthier and happier day overall.

10 Secret Techniques to Having a Much More Productive Morning

  1. Prepare the Night Before – A great way to start the morning off right is to write out a detailed and scheduled morning plan the night before.
  1. Avoid Consuming Too Much Caffeine – Sluggish mornings are often met with an urge to consume too much coffee. This can lead to a quick caffeine crash and lack of focus.
  1. Eat a Balanced Breakfast – Protein and healthy fat sources are great morning meal choices that will offer a slow-burning energy release capable of powering anyone through a busy morning.
  1. Don’t Get Trapped by Emails – Many people fall into the trap of getting lost in their email inbox. Set a limit on the amount of time spent checking an email account.
  1. Cultivate a Healthy Mindset – People that learn how to force themselves into the correct morning mindset will eventually start waking up in a better mood without any added effort.
  1. Avoid Social Media – Another digital trap that many people fall into is spending way too much of their morning completely lost in social media.
  1. Get a Little Exercise – Studies have shown that even 10 minutes of light exercise in the morning can build more energetic momentum for the rest of the day.
  1. Set Reasonable Goals – It is a good idea to make sure that morning goals are reasonable and are not overwhelming right from the get-go.
  1. Meditate – One of the best things a person can do first thing in the morning is to meditate in silence in order to become centered and laser-focused on the goals of the day.
  1. Drink a Tall Glass of Lemon Water – Rich in vitamin C, lemon water is a great coffee or tea replacement capable of delivering clean and long-lasting energy to power anyone through their busy morning schedule.
