Put Your Phone Down Before Bed
Yes, we know. Scrolling through Twitter and Instagram in bed each night is nearly impossible to avoid. However, putting your phone down at least 30 minutes before getting into bed will help you fall asleep faster and, therefore, wake up more refreshed. If you can’t seem to resist the notifications on your screen, try plugging your phone in on the opposite side of the room at night. This not only keeps you from reaching for your phone in bed, but it will get you up on your feet as soon as your first alarm goes off. Say goodbye to snooze and hello to a more productive morning!
Use the Whipped Drinks Whip Kit
If you’re someone who needs a daily dose of caffeine but doesn't have the time or patience to cook up a pot of homemade brew, the Whipped Drinks Whip Kit will make your life so much easier. Instead of spending $5 or more at a coffee shop each morning, simply use the Whip Kit tools to make a deliciously foamy, barista-worthy cup of whipped coffee in 60 seconds or less. Surely, you can find one minute of time for this in your daily morning routine. The Whip Kit is foolproof, and it comes with all the tools and instructions you’ll need for that perfect cup of joe.

Journal for Five Minutes
It’s easy to instantly get caught up in the busyness of your day ahead, but it’s important to take a few minutes to slow down (yes, this is a productive use of your time). Journaling for even five minutes in the morning will help remove any stress or anxieties from your head and put them onto a page. If you’re new to journaling, you can start by writing five things down that you’re grateful for that day – think both big and small! This technique will put you in a more positive and productive mindset for the rest of your day.

Make a Daily To-Do List
Not sure where to start your day after your morning coffee and quiet time? First things first: make a to-do list for the day ahead! This list doesn’t need to be long or go into too much detail, but it should outline the most important tasks you want to get done that day. Prioritizing your goals and intentions will help you achieve a proactive mindset and keep you on track. Besides, there are few things more satisfying or motivating than crossing off a task on your list.
Getting some exercise first thing in the morning is a surefire way to start your day on the right foot. Again, this doesn’t need to be anything extensive. If you want to go for a long run or lift weights, that’s great, but even doing some squats or 50 jumping jacks when you get out of bed will suffice. This gets your endorphins flowing, which will get you more excited and motivated for the rest of the day.
