Everybody knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So can be told about the morning. It all depends on the way we start it. We all need a good morning to be the best versions of ourselves, productive, focused, and organized.
People are all unique and different, men and women even more so. We all operate differently, with different biological rhythms and different productivity styles. One person likes to kick off their day with a five-mile run while another opts for gentle meditation, and a third sips her coffee in bed at 10 a.m.
Here’s how you can get a successful mourning routine:
If women like to take their time and sometimes stretch and turn before going out of bed, men do that quickly. They can be up and running as soon as the alarm rings, and that gives them a boost of energy. Even if they have a smartwatch that vibrates or they have the alarm right on the nightstand, at arm’s reach, men don’t seem to need the extra time to “wallow” in bed.
There’s a joke that says, “men do everything in the shower.” The interesting and funny fact is, that might be correct. Sometimes Men’s grooming usually starts with a quick shower. For the more courageous one, it can be a cold one. Pleasant? No, but a nice boost of energy.
A beautiful smile can be your business card. So take extra care of your teeth. The products you use for your oral health are essential and need to be just the right ones.
Shaving is usually on the list of men’s morning routine. Don’t hurry, do it well. Use the right products for your skin, and you’ll instantly feel more confident. The same goes for your hair. Whether it’s dry or oily, use the right hair products to make it look natural. Oh, and let’s not forget the beard! The beard needs a lot of attention nowadays. A neatly trimmed, clean beard can make you look like a whole different person.
Men don’t usually skip breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day. It gives you the energy you need.
Some men take their time to cook every morning. Some eat anything that is fast and handy. In any category you might find yourself, don’t skip breakfast. Also, you need to find out what food your body needs in the morning. That depends on your lifestyle. Do you exercise often and are physically active? Maybe try a keto-diet, based on meat and vegetables. You work in an office and are more sedentary? Maybe try more low-fat meals, with nutritional value.
Whatever the case, take the time to get higher-quality foods that last longer and are specially chosen for you. Don’t give your diet a free pass. Make time to research the right foods.
And don’t forget: breakfast is for healthy, organized men!
The morning’s the best time to check your daily schedule. People usually check their agenda before going out in the morning. Make sure you know exactly what you have to do that day. And try to start with the “hardest” thing. Statistics say you’ll be more productive that way, and all other tasks will be done easier after the first “hard” one.
To be more productive, maybe keep an agenda you like to see every day. Something with an inspirational cover might help. Or even a To-Do-List on the wall of your bedroom, there are some special materials which you can write on with chalk and erase as you see fit. Or a pencil board. There are many options. Be organized and, therefore, productive.
Getting dressed is maybe, the most important part of a men’s morning routine! First, you need to know what exactly will you do that day.
Are you going to the office? Then try the smart-casual look, if the workplace permits it.
Are you going to the gym after work? Maybe pack some sportswear with you.
Are you just going out shopping? Well then, it depends on the weather as well.
Wherever you are going, first make sure you are comfortable. Sure, a suit and tie might not be very comfortable. But depending on the hours spent on those clothes, maybe pack another shirt with you.
Also, shoes are very important. You’ll need to adapt the shoes to your entire clothing.
Idea: A morning routine can include a previous evening routine, when you prepare the clothes you’ll wear the next day. It can save you some time in the morning!
Before going out the door, don’t forget to check again if you have everything you need.
Car keys? Wallet? Briefcase? Lunch pack? Bike helmet? That nice watch or smartwatch you use daily? You complete the list with whatever gets you through the day. Just remember, it all starts with a good morning routine.
Indeed, men’s morning routine is not a fixed menu. There’s no routine that works well for everyone. There are just some key elements that can make a morning routine more effective for men. Most of them have some things in common.
Of course, you can improvise, you can skip everything and just head out in a hurry. But hopefully not, and there are many ways you can build your own perfectly personalized mornings.
Above, there’s just a selection of ideas and facts men usually do in the morning. But don’t forget that a good morning routine can really set the productivity tone for the rest of the day.
