How I Created A Morning Ritual to Feel More Creative, Focused and Energised

I’m a big fan of morning rituals. Because they can change the way you start your day, by making you feel more happy and excited.

Tony Robbins, for example, uses his morning ritual to change the state of his mind.

Other use their morning rituals as a way to feel more creative.

In my case, mornings rituals make me even more excited to work on my projects.
I already love to work on those, but mornings are when I feel more creative and focused.

I’ve read a ton of books and information about other people’s rituals. And so I’ve changed my own ritual more than 10 times. To try and see what works best with me.

I highly encourage you to try different elements in your morning routine, and see how you feel about those.

I’ve experimented with cold baths, long walks, exercise, meditation, music, reading books, etc. But now, I have a more structured routine that works best for me.

Here’s how I created my Morning Ritual:

  1. I wake up with my alarm (I use the “Sleep Cycle” App);
  2. While in bed, I answer 4 morning questions to feel grateful about my life (my type of meditation);
  3. Then, I drink a full glass of water;
  4. I get ready while I listen to an audiobook or podcast (to acquire knowledge);
  5. I drink my bulletproof coffee or I eat other type of breakfast;
  6. Simply, START WORKING!

This is mostly my morning ritual in Winter.

When Summer arrives, I like to walk in my garden for 15 minutes, while I read a book. Because it’s hot outside and also because I have more time to get ready (summer vacation).

But as you can imagine, I’m constantly changing my routine so it fit my needs.

For example, if I want to feel more creative in the morning, I might add a creativity exercise in my ritual. Or if I want more energy, I would add physical exercise before starting to work.

You definitely should think about your needs at the moment, and you should make sure your routine fulfil those needs. Because that’s the only way you can make your morning ritual effective.

Action: Write down what is the type of work you do in the mornings and what it requires (creativity, energy, focus).

I’m going to give you the “recipe” for creating your own ritual, to assure it is exactly what you need for your life. 

A Morning Ritual to Feel more Creative:

  1. You wake up with your alarm (I use the “Sleep Cycle” App);
  2. While in bed, think about 2/3 creative (and ridiculous) reasons to be alive. Honestly, the more stupid they sound, the better;

    Example: I’m alive because someone needs to wash the dishes today!)
  3. Drink a full glass of water;
  4. Get ready while listening to an audiobook or podcast (chose books that offer a total different perspective);
  5. Do a creativity exercise.;

    Example: Write 10 ideas off stuff you could invent (again, those don’t need to be great ideas).
  6. Eat your breakfast;
  7. Start working.

A Morning Ritual to Feel more Energised:

  1. You wake up with your alarm (I use the “Sleep Cycle” App);
  2. While in bed, think about the 3 reasons why you workout;
  3. Drink a full glass of water;
  4. Put your workout clothes and go for a Run, while listening to your favourite musics;
  5. Track your results (with specific apps or devices), so you can improve;
  6. Get dressed and ready;
  7. Eat your breakfast;
  8. Start working.

A Morning Ritual to Feel more Focused:

  1. You wake up with your alarm (I use the “Sleep Cycle” App);
  2. While in bed, think about the 3 goals you want to accomplish in that day. If possible, write the reasons why you want to achieve those goals;
  3. Drink a full glass of water;
  4. Get ready while listening to an audiobook or podcast (listen to a great audiobook, that can provide you new insights for your project or business);
  5. Meditate for 10 minutes (I use the help of the app “HeadSpace");
  6. Eat your breakfast;
  7. Start working.

Well, you don’t have more excuses for not having your own ritual.

But again, make sure you try it yourself, and make some rearrangements, if necessary.
