Morning rituals are different from morning routines. The latter is simply the set of actions you do when you wake up – shower, wash your face, brush your teeth and hair, have breakfast, etc.

A morning ritual, on the other hand, is about a practice or a set of practices that has meaning and value. You create a morning ritual based on your preferences and the goal you pursue with it. Some people do morning rituals to feel energized, others do it to clear their minds, get motivated to tackle the day, etc.

In this article, we discuss the importance of having a morning ritual, and what are some ways to make the mindful start of the day a habit.

A mindful morning routine is not an extra point on your to-do list. Starting your day mindfully is just as important as any other task you have to tackle throughout the day.

Here are 9 ways to create a mindful morning routine.

1. Meditate
If mornings are pure stress for you because of the annoying sound of the alarm and the rush you are always in, try making meditation a part of your morning ritual.

2. Do Breathing Exercises
While breathing is our primary impulse, there are days when life is so hectic that we forget to breathe deeply and properly.

Take a few minutes in the morning to do breathing exercises. Breathing exercises raise your awareness and reduce anxiety. They lower heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles, improve focus and concentration.

3. Journal
Journaling is an excellent way to start your day if you tend to be in the writing mood when you wake up.
You can write down anything you want – how you are feeling, what are your goals, what are you grateful for, etc. You can do freewriting too and write anything you want for a specified period of time.

4. Stretch
If you are struggling with waking up your body when your mind is already awake, do a few minutes of stretching as a part of your morning ritual.

But it is not only physical benefits that stretching has. It also helps you loosen up emotionally. It helps you release suppressed emotions and start the day in a relieved state.
You can stretch in silence or while listening to your favorite music.

Slowing down is often the key to becoming more mindful.
8. Schedule Your Day and Set Intentions
Planning your day in the morning can take away the feeling of being overwhelmed by the number of tasks you have to accomplish.

When scheduling your day, don’t forget to set clear intentions. Knowing what you want to achieve that day will give you motivation and enthusiasm to get going.
9. Slow Down
Slowing down is often the key to becoming more mindful.

If you are not feeling like having an extra step in your morning routine but you still want to make it more mindful, simply slow down while doing your mundane morning tasks. Remember to slow down when you are brushing your teeth, taking sips of your favorite coffee, eating breakfast, etc.
