3 Steps to Building a Successful Morning Routine


In this blog post, we talked about the five secrets to building a successful morning routine. It all starts with planning the night before. But what we didn’t discuss is the importance of three main factors:

  1. Preparing your environment
  2. Improving your habits with Shock Clock
  3. Making your routine stick

Anytime you make a change, you’re going to face resistance. It’s normal. It’s part of the process. But if you’re clear about your reason why, you’ll be able to push through when things get tough. 

We all have things we want to improve. Maybe you want to exercise more, or maybe you want to stop sleeping in. Whatever the goal, you won’t get far without focus.

Here are three steps for building a successful morning routine.

1. Prepare your environment

Set your alarm outside your room

While this might be extreme for some, the fact of the matter is, it works. If you find yourself constantly snoozing, putting your alarm in the other room can help you get up and moving. Once you’re out of bed, it’s much easier to stay up and get your day started.

Sleep in your morning clothes

If you thought putting your alarm outside your room was weird, sleeping in your morning clothes is an even weirder, more successful way to “hack your psychology.”

Alternatively, you can lay out your clothes for the day in a spot you won’t miss them, particularly if you’re trying to add the exercise habit to your morning routine.

Keep your room clean

Waking up in a messy room is a quick way to start your day discouraged and overwhelmed. Even just tidying up your room a little bit the night before can go a long way in priming your mind for a focused and productive morning.

Place a sticky note by your bed

Place a sticky note by your bed with a motivational quote or things you need to get done for the day. It makes hitting snooze much more difficult when you know you have important things to do.

2. Build better habits with Shock Clock

We’re not here to judge, but if you want results, you have to dig deep and make the necessary changes, and oftentimes it starts with a little help. Instead of just doing the same old thing over and over, you can try something that’s worked for thousands of people all around the world.
