It is said that we are usually at our best in the morning; we are fresh in the body, mind and spirit. Also, we have less distractions.
1) Pray | Put God first by worshipping and praising Him. Remember to ask God to guide your day.
2) Read the bible and read a daily bible devotional | One thing that has helped me when I felt lazy to read the bible is listening to an audio bible. After all, the bible says faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). My concentration has increased immensely since I started listening to audio bible as it constantly requires my listening and attention skills. The audio bible has also helped me with the pronunciation of some words in the bible. Have you considered listening to the bible?
3) Read a book for 20 minutes | It helps one's mental dictionary and intelligence. It has increased my personal lexicon. One of my reading goals for this year is to broaden the genre of books that I read and you can do the same.
4) Plan out your day | If you are into exercise, it's an opportunity for you to workout as it is said that those that exercise in the morning have more energy in the day. I must confess, I don't have a scheduled exercise routine; I used to go swimming once a week but I gave up. Perhaps this is the year to resume it or start some other exercise routine.
5) Get ready for your day | Remember to have breakfast or drink a glass of water.
To minimise rushing in the morning, you can consider waking up 15 minutes earlier; it's a good way to start the day. To maximise my morning and be more productive, I've also adjusted the time that I wake up.
Now, it's time for you to think and perhaps write down the five things that you do or will like to do in the morning.
