How to Create a Morning Routine

Morning routines have always been important in setting us up for a productive day ahead but recently morning routine content has plagued social media platforms and we bet you want to know how you can create your own.

TikTok feeds have been flooded with “THAT GIRL” morning routines, the “6am-9am Morning Routine” and everything in between. Let us be your one stop shop for everything you need to know about morning routines and how to create your own.


What even is a Morning Routine? 

We’re so glad you asked…

A morning routine is the steps that take you from the time you wake up to the time you “start your day”. 

Our mornings are arguably the most important part of our day because they set the tone for how it pans out. For example, if you wake up late, don’t have time to eat breakfast, miss your train and are late to work, you wouldn’t be feeling too fabulous for the remainder of the day.


If you woke up at 6 am, did a sunrise walk or pilates, enjoyed your coffee as you wrote in your Daily Planner and even had time to read a book or listen to a podcast, you’d be feeling euphoric. 

Building a Morning Routine

Morning routines are so great because they are flexible and there is no “one size fits all”. You can, and should, tailor your morning routine to suit your lifestyle.


Here are some steps to follow to create your own morning routine:

  • Choose a time to set your alarm. If you usually wake up at 7:30 am and want to wake up earlier, set your alarm 5 mins earlier than usual until you get to the ideal time you want to wake up.

  • Don’t press snooze. Because 5 more minutes of sleep won't make much of a difference.

  • Have a glass of water as soon as you wake up. You want to be proactive when it comes to keeping yourself hydrated for your physical and mental health. 

  • Have your clothes ready the night before. Whether it’s your gym clothes ready to go for a walk, or your outfit for work, having it  ready for you means it’s one less thing your tired brain needs to think about.

  • Move your body. Even if it’s only 10 minutes, your mind and body will thank you for it.

  • Enjoy a coffee or tea and a healthy breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!! And make sure you have a glass of water before you have your coffee to ensure you’re on track for your daily hydration!

  • Spend 10-20 minutes writing in your Daily Planner. This will clear your mind, release any stress you may have about the day ahead, and make you more productive throughout the day. 

    Top Tip: Try to not go on your phone for the first hour of the day.
