How a morning routine can help you study smarterPosted on 12/04/2017 by Jess O'Connor
Do you have a morning routine that sets you up for a productive, successful day?
Several studies have found that following a healthy, positive routine each morning can have powerful benefits for your wellbeing and productivity.
There’s something about starting your day “on the right foot” that helps you stay focused and calm, no matter what challenges are thrown at you. If you start your morning feeling good, then you’re more likely to apply yourself to your studies – whether you hit the books at 9am or 9pm.
Here are some tips for creating a morning routine that works for you.
Start the day with something you love
Try to wake up slightly earlier so you have time to do something you love every morning. This might mean getting up before the kids so you can enjoy a cup of coffee in peace. Or it might mean reading a few chapters of a book, writing in your journal, going for a walk, or even watching some TV. Give yourself 30 minutes to do something just for you.
When you start the day doing something you love, it becomes easier and easier to wake up feeling positive. You might even find yourself looking forward to your alarm instead of dreading it!
Eat a nutritious breakfast
Fuel your body and your brain with a healthy breakfast jam-packed with nutrients. A good breakfast should leave you feeling energised and keep you going until lunch. Some yummy ideas include eggs, homemade smoothies, porridge, and fruit and yoghurt.
When you eat well, your brain will have more energy to learn and you’ll find it easier to concentrate on your assignments.
Write down your ‘why’
Every morning, write down why you’re studying on a piece of paper. For example, are you studying so you can start an exciting career in tourism? Or do you want to get a better job so you can support your family? Or maybe you want to travel overseas in the not-too-distant future?
Whatever your motivation to study from home, write it down every single morning so you don’t forget. Doing this will help you stay focused on your studies.
