COLLEGE MORNING ROUTINE
How to stick with a morning routine in college
I know your wondering how to stick with a morning routine in college. Honestly, it can be hard to get used to waking up early in the morning and getting into the habit of including it in your priorities.
Don't expect to create this morning routine and not slip up the first couple of mornings. Don't be too hard on yourself. If you start doing one thing at a time it'll eventually become a healthy habit that will become muscle memory.
#1 Why Do You Want to have a Morning Routine?
Ask yourself why you want a morning routine. Are you planning on being consistent? Are you doing this for your health? Make sure you ask yourself if this is right for you.
#2 Wake Up at a Consistent Time!
Ditch your back-up alarms and your back-up back-up alarms. Have one alarm and remove the snooze button. If you wake up at 8 am one day and 10 am the next day you will have a hard time having a consistent routine and lose time during the day to accomplish your goals.
Another tip is to have your phone or alarm clock away from your bed, which will force you to physically get out of bed and start your day.
#3 Analyze your Priorities
Ask yourself what your main priorities are that you would like to accomplish every morning. These things could range from meditating to reading your favorite book for a bit. List 3-5 things you want to incorporate in your daily routine.
Here’s My List:
- Quiet time
- Eat breakfast
- Make my bed
- Get myself ready
#4 Create a Daily To-Do List
You may have seen YouTube videos on millionaires' morning routines or successful business owners' morning routines and they all agree on having a daily to-do list.
Having a daily to-do list will save you so much time and make your day more productive. Every morning, ask yourself what you would like to accomplish that day.
#5 Unplug From Your TV and Phone
Personally, I have had this problem of wanting to check my social media or watch TV immediately when I get up in the morning, and then I eventually lose track of time. Take some time away from your phone to get ready for the day.
#6 Make your Bed
Making your bed is one of the most refreshing things to do right after you turn off your alarm. It doesn’t tempt you to go back to bed after making it.
And when you come back from work or classes your bed is all ready for you to crash in.
#7 Workout/ Go for a Walk
Studies show it’s best to work out in the morning because it gives you the energy to kickstart your day.
If you don’t have that much time in the morning just take a brisk walk around campus.
#8 Self Care
What I’ve learned recently is that I have been lacking on focusing on myself. Taking a few minutes a day to focus on my mental health and being happier with myself.
I personally struggle with body positivity and loving myself. There is nothing wrong with loving yourself and focusing on making yourself happy. You can do this by doing your nails or baking. Just little things that make you happy and feel good.

#9 Mind Stimulating Activity
Find an activity that will stimulate your mind like a brain exercise or reading a book.
#10 Drink Water
The moment you wake up in the morning, after turning your alarm off and making your bed, try drinking a glass of water to help boost your metabolism and kill bad toxins.
#11 Meditation/ Bible Reading
I am a Christian and I do a daily devotional. I enjoy having this quiet time and feeling centered with the word of God. This will work for any religion, and if you are not religious you can meditate.
Eat a good breakfast. I know you've heard this multiple times.
But if all you eat is pop tarts in the morning you are going to feel sluggish from not having a balanced diet. Try to include protein, vegetables, and fruits to start your day off right.

#13 Listening to Podcasts
I recently have found an interest in listing to girl-empowering podcasts so that they can give me the boost of confidence.
They provide helpful information on how to be a complete girl boss. If you have no interest in those listen to mellow music. You can find some amazing podcasts on Spotify.
