Having an established morning routine has been proven to save mental energy and make your day more productive. Meditating as part of a routine is extremely important as it clears the mind and increases focus for the day. If you are new to meditation, it might be difficult to keep the mind calm while meditating. There are some helpful apps like Headspace available through the App Store that can help you focus on meditation.
Morning meditation improves productivity, stress levels and focus for the remainder of the day, and it is quite easy to implement. Morning meditation can be used as a prevention tool if you know your day will be especially stressful.
Morning meditation is not just about the fifteen minutes you spend focusing your mind; it is essential to get enough sleep, to view meditation as a positive, constructive experience, and to allow yourself a calm, quiet environment to meditate.
Like with breaking old habits, making new routines takes time and can often be frustrating. Motivate yourself to take the extra time to meditate, and you will find your days are brighter, less stressful, and more rewarding!
