This is what usually happens: You get up in the morning, get a lousy start to the day and are lousy pretty much the rest of the day.
One can argue that a lousy start to the day directly corresponds to how you spend the rest of the day, and since our lives are just a string of days sewn together - a lousy morning routine means a lousy life. (Sounds scary now doesn’t it? :D)
The above argument is obviously not factually correct. Like being an early morning riser doesn’t promise you all the success, a morning routine is not a necessity for success.
But it does have a positive effect on the rest of your day.
It gives you a jump start into the day.
It makes you feel a little more accomplished.
It helps you enjoy your breaks guilt-free.
And if you’re an early riser, it makes you feel as if you’re doing a lot in one day and therefore, philosophically speaking, adds more life to your days. (Sorry, it was the last joke I promise)
And a morning routine is not synonymous with waking up early. Wake up at whatever time you’d like. Just follow some simple steps and accomplish some simple tasks the first thing in the morning. The focus here is not time, but the confidence you’ll get once you complete these tiny steps successfully. This tiny confidence will boost you through your entire day.
