11 Morning Rituals That Can Change Your Life

Your morning can be that make-or-break time that sets you up for a good day or a bad day. Here are 11 habits you can establish that will put you on the path of stringing together good day after good day.

Drink Warm Lemon Water

1. Drink a Glass of Warm Lemon Water

Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get your body going. It’s like oil for the Tinman as it goes to work lubricating all of your different internal systems.

You want the water to be warm so that it’s not a shock to your system first thing in the morning. The lemon will help get your digestive system ready for the coming meals, and makes the water tastier. You can add a bit of honey to it as well if you want to cut down on some of the tartness.

The Rehydration Process

When you wake up in the morning you’ve just gone without water for about 8 hours, so it’s important to turn things around and start up the flow of water again. What you don’t want to do is leave out the water and go along with your day, having breakfast and other beverages before addressing your need for water.

2. Wake Up Earlier

This is priority one because in order to fit in a fantastic morning you’re going to need some extra time compared to your current routine.

If you’ve turned into a night owl because of the peace and quiet it affords, you’ll be equally satisfied by the same peace and quiet an early morning provides, and it’s simply a matter of shifting your personal time to the wee hours of the morning rather than late at night. The difference to your body is noticeable.

The Ideal Time to Wake Up

Wake up in conjunction with circadian rhythms if possible. Civil twilight is a great time to wake up because there will be enough light to see, the birds are chirping, and you still have time to catch the sunrise if you’re keen. Since this time varies by the time of year, it may be more feasible during some seasons than others. Give yourself an hour and a half before you have to be out the door.

3. Scrape Your Tongue

Taking time to scrape your tongue is one morning routine you won’t want to give up once you start it. It helps get rid of morning breath, and also is in line with the rejuvenation process you need to do to make the transition from sleep to wakefulness each day.

As a bonus you’ll be able to taste your food better without the film that’s on your tongue even after brushing your teeth.

The Right Scraper

Some toothbrushes come with a built-in scraper on the back of the head. If yours doesn’t have one you’ll want to invest in one. You can find some that are literally just a plastic triangle-shaped scraper, and others that feature special bristles that are designed to get into the grooves of your tongue. You can also go with the type that is stainless steel and U-shaped to get the job done.

Do a Stretch Routine

4. Do a Stretching Routine

Here’s a great 5 minute stretch that you can do in the morning to wake your muscles up and get them ready for the day ahead. You should always modify any workout to your own abilities, and search until you find one that resonates with you.

You can also use this time to do a yoga routine, or an exercise routine, if you feel so inclined or are trying to lose weight. However, if you currently aren’t exercising regularly we recommend starting off with just some morning stretches until that becomes a habit, and then transitioning into yoga and other exercises when you organically start to feel like you could do more than just stretch.

How Long Do I Have to Stretch?

When first starting out it doesn’t matter how long you stretch, just as long as you do it. If you only have a few minutes for it, just do a few minutes. You’ll find that as you develop the habit, you’ll end up stretching for longer periods of time, and it will naturally expand on its own without the need to force yourself to do it for a set time.

5. Rebound 100 Times

Rebounding on a mini-trampoline is the perfect morning exercise. It’s zero impact, and perfect for any physical fitness level. You don’t even have to get any air on it for it to be effective. Just lightly bouncing on it is effective for stimulating lymph movement and drainage as well as helping your thyroid.

You can repeat this process a few times per day, whenever you feel like you need a pick-me-up. It helps keep you energized without the use of energy drinks or other sugary or caffeinated beverages.

Firms Up Your Whole Body

You’ll notice that when you first start bouncing you’re kind of going with the flow, but by the time you hit your 100th bounce your body has tightened up considerably, in a good way. This is working each muscle in your body, your leg muscles, core, and upper body. A great way to start the day, get your juices flowing, and just plain feel good!

6. Dry Brush Your Body

Dry brushing the body is an Ayurvedic practice that helps improve your circulation and slough off dead skin cells.

Brushing towards your heart is essential, and you’ll want to start at your extremities and work your way in, covering all of your parts before hopping in the shower.

Dry brushing will help leave your skin feeling smoother, and you’ll notice the difference after you’ve dried off. Apply a moisturizer afterward to retain that suppleness.

Which Brush to Use?

Choose a brush that is good at exfoliating, but not one that is so rough you don’t look forward to using it. A dry loofah or other brush designed to scrub the skin works best. You don’t want it to be too soft on your skin or it won’t do the job, but if you opt for a softer brush you can apply more pressure so that it works.

Listen to Uplifting Music

7. Listen to Uplifting Music or Audiobook

Starting your morning with music you find beautiful, or a book you find inspirational or motivational, is the perfect way to set yourself up for success. It can give you something to look forward to in the morning, and sets you up with the right mindset to greet the day.

You can adjust your music for the type of day you want to have, whether you need something that gets you pumped for an action-packed day, or something more soothing so you can handle a stressful day.

The mind is hungry for new tidbits of information it can go to work on, and you should feed it every day, the same way you feed your body.

Choosing the Right Audio

Whether you pick a group of songs, or an audiobook that inspires you, is up to you. Choose your songs carefully though, as they can get stuck in your head, and if this sort of thing drives you crazy you might be better off listening to a book.

8. Green Smoothie Time

Now that we’ve woken up with the sun, brushed our teeth and scraped our tongue, rehydrated, stretched, rebounded, dry brushed the skin, showered while listening to pleasing music, it’s time to nourish the body with a refreshing green smoothie.

The green part of the smoothie is what’s really going to help boost your energy levels this morning. That’s because it will likely be spinach, kale, or some other leafy green providing phytonutrients, fiber, and minerals. Set a timer for 30 minutes after you drink it and notice how much better you feel.

Finding A Great Green Smoothie Recipe

Check out our list of amazing healthy smoothie recipes and pick the one that sounds most appealing to your morning palate. Just about any non-green smoothie can be made green with the addition of spinach or kale.

9. Meditate for a Few Minutes

Right now you should be in a really happy place, a green smoothie coursing through your digestive system, and all of the helpful things you’ve done should all be having a cumulative effect. There’s no better time to sit and clear your mind for a few minutes.

There’s also no right way to meditate, so if you’ve tried specific methods and didn’t really like it, it’s time to develop your own personal style. Choose a position that you find comfortable, and decide if you’d like music or not. Just sitting and listening to the silence can be enough for most.

Why Just a Few Minutes?

You don’t need to go into a trance or spend an hour in the lotus position to meditate. You can get the benefits from just a few minutes and you’ll see a marked improvement in the upward trend your days start to take. We’re being intentionally vague here because “a few” can mean whatever it means to you, and however you feel in the moment (or what the clock allows in the morning).

Smile to Yourself in the Mirror

10. Smile at Yourself in the Mirror for 30 Seconds

This is a can’t-miss way to boost your self esteem, and once you get into the habit you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. It’s basically just a matter of designating some time as true “me time” and seeing a happy you reflected back in the mirror.

This works on a number of different levels, but at the core is the ability it gives you to talk right to the bigger part of yourself, the part that is running in the background and getting the important things done.

Make sure you’re smiling, it doesn’t have to be a big goofy grin, just the hint of a smile works, like you’ve got some tricks up your sleeve and you’re ready to show the world what you can do. You’ll be surprised at the positive thoughts this exercise inspires.

Morning Validation

What you’re doing here is basically checking in with yourself, giving yourself that look of determination that you’ll need to make it through the day and accomplish all of your goals. No matter what happens the rest of the day, you’ve at least said hello to that deeper part of yourself and given words of encouragement.

11. Write Out Your Top 3 for the Day

If you lead a busy life chances are things fall through the cracks on a daily basis. To help stop this from happening you should list the three things you really want to get done today, and above all else, make sure they get done.

Once you establish the habit of getting the most important three things of the day done, you’ll be able to build up confidence and go for bigger and bigger things. A funny thing also happens, all of the smaller stuff that you thought needed to get done either does get done without being on your list of three, or fades away because it wasn’t that important to begin with.

Just 3, No More No Less

If you start getting carried away and adding more than three, you’ll find you won’t get to the fourth and fifth and so on, and then you’ll get discouraged. Force yourself to come up with three good ones, even if your day is largely unstructured. You’ll feel better at the end of the day knowing you at least got 3 important things done.

Don't Eat a Huge Breakfast

4 Things to Avoid That Can Send Your Day Off Course

Morning News – While it’s good to stay abreast of the latest happenings, you’ll do yourself a huge favor by missing out on the more upsetting things that have happened overnight. By lunchtime the biggest news will have made it to you, and if it’s something really big you can catch yourself up on the Internet in a matter of minutes.

Big Breakfast – A big breakfast is not recommended, even if it’s balanced and full of healthy things. Your digestion is weakest in the morning, and bombarding it with a big load of food will only set you up for a sluggish morning. Unless you plan on doing some intense activity to burn it off, stick to a light breakfast and have a snack later if you get hungry before lunch.

Stimulants – Many of us reach instinctively for a cup of coffee in the morning to get us going, or need an energy drink before we consider the day started. But these are just crutches that could be masking a lack of sleep or nutrition. Drop the stimulants and continue to make positive changes until you don’t feel you need them anymore.

Sleeping In – These are morning *rituals* we’re starting here, and you can’t expect them to change your life unless you stick to them religiously. Taking the weekends off of your routine is a sure way to disrupt the good habits you’ve formed during the week, and regress to your old ways. Stay the course, even on the weekends, and you’ll reap all of the benefits.

    Strong scientific souses in this article. I especially agree that scraping your tongue and smiling at your self in the mirror is defiantly more important than a well balanced breakfast.

  2. drink when thirsty says:

    “What you don’t want to do is leave out the water and go along with your day, having breakfast and other beverages before addressing your need for water.”

    Unless you’re going to have completely dry food, without the addition of water or milk for breakfast, you don’t need to worry about that. Thirst or “feeling like” drink water are the best indicators of real need to drink water that there is, if you didn’t have some sort of brain damage. There are plenty of people just spreading BS after BS about drinking lots of water, all worried that they may forget to get enough water for the day. Most likely no one needs to worry about that if they live in a moderately not-poor place and have access to good potable water supplies. People have DIED because of this stupid fad of over-drinking water (marathon runners – turns out that the ones that finish earlier are the ones most dehydrated, not the ones that drunk water all the way – this is risky, not just for competition results, but for health issues).

    I don’t think this fad is usually taken to the extreme to lead to death by water intoxication (and there is such a thing), but turns out that water in excess has a similar effect of dehydration – the minerals get too diluted in the excess of water.

    • DianeMargaret says:

      So true!
      I got very sick because I was forcing myself to drink 8 glasses of water a day, because of everyone being obsessed with that!!!
      When I got SO very sick over it, I went to my doctor (thinking something must be wrong, if I can’t drink simple water, without getting sick), and he said that some people just, simply, don’t NEED as much water as others!
      Drinking a COLD glass of water, first thing, does make me feel good, but then…unless I’m sweating pretty badly…I really don’t seem to need much, throughout the day. We DO drink only water with meals though.
      My husband, and our daughter, drink a TON of water every day though. They always have…
      When I was pregnant…WATER was the only “food aversion” my body developed! I, literally, could not drink more than a tiny sip or two, or I would get the WORST heartburn!!! It was awful, but it proved just how little my body actually seems to need water. 😏

    • Natalie says:

      Seriously? Scientific evidence supports the FACT that
      Your body is at least 60% water. The human body needs a measured 1L of water per 30kg of mass for the healthy function of all of your vital organs- you idiot.

      Until you have a bachelor in health science like myself, OR common sense, I suggest you rethink your water intake.

      Also- the serious athletes that have died from drinking too much water: after extreme exertion, your kidneys are not designed to flush and hydrate with such immense amounts of fluid – hyponatremia. These athletes we’re clearly not warned or were careless- and also drank between a recorded 2-4L within a matter of minutes. Of course it’s lethal, too much of anything can have serious effects on your organs, as well as too much neglect On water intake. If you wait for your body to tell you you’re thirsty – you’ve waited too long. Wake up.

      • Leon says:

        Wow! You have a bachelor’s in health yet you still haven’t learned your manners. Why do you feel the need to be rude? It just makes you look less credible. For example, I was reading your opinion until you called the OP an idiot, then I stopped caring what you had to say simply because you’re rude. Think about what you write next time. Take care.

        • Ang says:

          Love this response. What she says wasn’t entirely credible regardless ( I’m an RN ) depending on which “scientific studies” you choose to back your “facts”.

      • Cody says:

        Just a friendly heads up… When you call someone an idiot, you might want to proof your own comment for punctuation, spelling and grammar first.

      • T says:

        I Concure Natalie.

    • T says:

      Drinking water,1/2 your body weight in ounces throughout the day. and i’m sticking to it.

  3. T says:

    Everything seems pretty accurate. Only thing is: your digestive system actually works best in the morning and break fast is the most important meal of the day, so eat healthily and quality over quantity.

    • Grace says:

      Totally agree that breakfast is not to be light, it should the heaviest meal, “breakfast like a king” as they say. Actually a few of these tips aren’t very scientific… Tongue scraping is linked to tongue cancer, exfoliation can be overly disruptive to skin, stripping it of the protective oils and dry it out, and jumping on a trampoline is definitely not ‘no impact ‘! Most points are valid to a degree though. Sleep is the key one for me.

      • KR says:

        Where did you read that tongue scraping has been linked to tongue cancer? I’ve never, ever heard that.. So I’m curious.

    • Charlotte says:

      100% correct.

  4. Kyle says:

    Not a bad list…number 2 ruined it for me. Your body will wake up when it has had sufficient rest. Waking up early is a terrible way to start your day. Never set an alarm if you don’t have to. If you have to interrupt your body’s rest with an alarm clock, you are missing out on the most important part of your day! Sleep!!!!!! If you drink too much and take Advil for your hangover… The Advil is a solution to the problem. But not the best way to fix it (dont drinking too much). This is the same as waking up with an alarm, the alarm is comparable to the Advil

    • Amelia says:

      Very true, especially if you’re a person who needs a full night’s sleep to be able to function properly. I think the only way to do the early morning thing successfully is to gradually bring your waking up time earlier and go to bed earlier on a constant basis, and therefore move your circadian rhythm to allow you to comfortably and naturally wake up earlier. It’s not something you can successfully do in a week.

  5. Rebecca says:

    Wow! I’m ready to start!

  6. Pieter says:

    Great list that mentions all the essentials. Thanks for sharing and writing in a motivating and comprehensible way.

  7. Ella says:

    This is great! I love your site. Thanks for the tips xx

  8. Manny says:

    Great tips
    # 1 is on my list, 3 I’m already doing and 9 I’m working on, but it takes effort

  9. John C says:

    Great tips! I following only 2,3,4 and already i feel better!

  10. anonymous says:

    I’ve read many of articles like this and came to a conclusion that, in order to do all of this, you need to:
    a) live alone
    b) have a job with satisfying salary (meaning you don’t have $$$ worries)
    c) be young and full of life
    d) not have kids (or at least not live with them)
    The last thing is, I think, the most important one, as kids know to eat your time and energy away. So your morning routine actually becomes their morning routine – getting them ready and taking them to school, for instance. 🙂

    • Amanda says:

      I have to agree. No way I could do all of this. I have done yoga as a ritual with my kids. If you have a houseful it is probably better to be realistic about what rituals you can incorporate and choose them.

      I tried the lemon water thing but it just eats my mouth. I end up with a sore stinging tongue.

      Coffee may be a stimulant but it is also ritual. I have a beautiful mug that fits just so in my hand and I sip away and delight all my senses as I stir the oatmeal.

    • ANY says:

      I was thinking the same things the whole time I was reading this article. Yep…great if you live alone

    • whatever says:

      Yes to all of what you said above. I’m pretty sure this person does not work in 1. retail. 2.sales. 3. in the medical field or 4. you know, not with a regular schedule. Try waking up ‘early’ when you go to sleep at 1 am because you’re too wired from all the stress you’re having trying to pay your bills on time, then come talk to me. Yeah..

    • Kacie says:

      Many parents wake up earlier than their children in order to have time to themselves, for their self care and sanity (as well as a little peace and quiet). It does mean going to bed earlier than usual though, so you don’t deprive yourself of sleep. Most people are more productive in the mornings, and you could add in a few things like making your meditation the time while you’re making lunches or folding laundry. All activities like this are meditative if done mindfully. Plus you could be listening to your uplifting material while you’re doing your stretching and smiling at yourself in the mirror. All of this would really only take an extra half hour- 45 minutes and there is no rule saying you need to to it all. Perhaps you don’t do the rebounding or dry brushing. It’s about carving time out for you to start your day right, which will make you a sparklier, more energetic version of you 🙂

      • Gail says:

        I loved all of your tips and have incorporated most of them so it won’t be hard to add a few more to increase my productivity~ I can’t see how they wouldn’t! And to the people who don’t have time and don’t have money and don’t live by yourselves–By the time it takes to critique this article you could have done at least 2-3 of the items. It makes me laugh to see how rude people can be and how they jump at why they can’t try something and are so eager to give their advice. I appreciate the article and look forward to seeing how the tips will work (or not work) to make me a better person.

  11. Isabelle says:

    Great list that mentions all the essentials. Thanks for sharing and writing in a motivating and comprehensible way.

  12. Elizabeth Harding Jatta says:

    This is a wonderful and healthy site, I will start with no. 1. Can I use lemon Juice if I don’t have fresh lemon.

    • Sharon says:

      Is it store bought lemon juice? I’m afraid not, it’s usually loaded with sugar

    • Patty says:

      Yes it can be. Buy an organic one like Santa Cruz pure lemon juice not from concentrate. You can add a packet of organic stevia to sweeten your glass. I use wholesome sweeteners brand. Yes, The lemon juice is acidic but after your body uses it the “ash” (what it becomes) is alkaline. It helps to neutralize your body. Sounds weird but its very good for you.

      • Amelia says:

        Just be careful to drink the lemon drink before brushing your teeth, because the lemon will eat away at your teeth. I’ve heard a dentist call lemon drinks a “no-no” for that reason.

  13. Scott says:

    This is awesome, it’s given me an uplifting start to the day!

  14. chrisso says:

    starting day off with acidic drink in the morning??

  15. carol says:

    Good list, but that breakfast thing is wrong. Breakfast SHOULD be your biggest meal of the day, as long as it’s healthy. It’s the most important, and your digestion actually IS working it’s best in the morning. You have all day to work it off, and it Kickstart your metabolism.

    • Maria Lopez says:

      Are you a Gastroenterology? After having a test that requires the stomach to be completely empty, you need to start eating soup and then gradually increasing a strong meal.

      • Ang says:

        I assume you mean gastroenterologist? Sorry but you don’t have to have an extensive education in order to read and comprehend credible studies, and decide what works best for your body.

  16. Dharma Guy says:

    Sounds like conventional wisdom. How much has been studied & validated a true?

  17. MikeL says:

    As for stretching. Holding any stretch more than 5 minutes has no benefit what so ever. This has been proven scientifically. So unless you have time to kill, anything over that is pointless.

  18. Krp Diem says:

    Thank you. Great List. I retyped it so can go on my fridge.

  20. asif says:

    I always get amazed when reading these articles as in Islam all rituals have health benefits which science is now understanding

  21. David says:

    Great ideas, but clearly you don’t have children. 🙂

  22. Olusola says:

    What are the natural ways to lower blood pressure and cure heart disease?

  23. Jane says:

    Whilst I thoroughly agree with your post, I would like to add a caution here, to expand you knowing and to promote and encourage growth and change, do not get into too many habits. My teaching is what habit are you wearing today? Can you take it off? ~~

  24. Haley says:

    honestly a really good list… If I could wake up 90 minutes earlier than usual. I’m already up at 5:30 and late for school. Not really loving the idea of getting up earlier. All you adults obviously don’t remember what it feels like to be a teen. We NEED our sleep or it ruins our whole schedule. But having to wake up so earlier to go to school is throwing it off. When I come to school I give my teachers 6 hrs of my day 5 days a week. That means I work 24 hrs a week only in school. Then I come home and do my 2-3 hrs of homework and then go play the sport I love. Everyone needs to realize it’s harder to balance than it seems. And sleep is the thing that gets lost in the middle of everything.

  25. Candice says:

    Good article – really helpful. Thank you! Just one point – dry body brushing isn’t an Ayurvedic practice. In fact, in Ayurveduc medicine they advice against dry body brushing as they think its damaging to the skin.

  26. Lisa Hill says:

    Yeah, I often do that if I get feel something before lunch, I grab some snacks..and yes never read a newspaper in the morning unless you can handle that much pain.

  27. Maria says:

    Even though I don’t approve some of it (lack of validation), it’s an energetic list to give me ideas to spin that suits my lifestyle and situation. As a newly divorced wife (luckily, no children yet), it gets harder to wake up early and keeps focus to thw things I want to do. Thank you!

  28. Ylva says:

    I wake up early but I would never waist 1.5 h of precious morning time on stuff like this. I just try to get into the office and get the most important things done before my nice but chatty colleges come in.

    • Bailey says:

      Late to this party… obviously. But instead of having to go in early to get work accomplished, you could learn to say ‘no’ to co-workers when needing to work rather than chat.

  31. PaulaL says:

    I have carved out a lovely morning ritual – middle aged, divorced Mum to 2 teens – my only issue with this list is taking lemon juice and water. I did this and the lemon juice eroded my enamel on my teeth!! My dentist said it happens a lot so you must clean your teeth (and scrape your tongue) after you have taken the water and lemon! Try to avoid drinking it throughout the day too without rinsing your mouth with fresh water. Wishing everyone an awesome day 🙂

    • Amelia says:

      Exactly! By the way, for those trying lemon and water, try putting ginger and honey in it…you can make it up as a syrup and have it in the fridge ready to put in a hot drink.

  32. Riyaz Alam says:

    What a beautiful article it is. all the tips that you mention here are awesome specially the wake up early plan. I am just going to share it on FB

  33. Andy says:

    I really took this to heart. We are a family of 3 and we all get involved in them, meaning we all get up a little earlier.

    Do you have similar suggestion for end of day rituals?

  34. alex says:

    # 1 the lemon drink…what i do is boil the kettle (obviously), then squeeze a medium sized lemon then add into a large glass then squeeze a medium sized orange and add to the glass, then add a good squeeze of honey and add the hot (not boiling) water stir well then sit back and enjoy, excellent wake up cure especially after a night on the loony juice.

  35. Stacy says:

    Thank you for this list. It’s a good check in and reminder of self care.
    What I’ve found from experience is “do what works for you” and “allow what works for others”. I have no intention of doing everything on this list or exactly follow the advice of the things I’m drawn too. But I will figure out what works best for me. Try it and see how I feel. No peer pressure, shame, blame or negative self talk…”I should do”.
    Bio-individuality means finding a flow that works for you. And trusting yourself to make the best decisions. Also “letting certain practices GO, when they are no longer effective and incorporating new ones”. Change is the flow… and a attitude of grace toward others and self go a long way for happy, healthy, wellness… And if you need support, get a Health Coach that listens to you and is interested in your well being, not what’s in trend.

  36. Jackie says:

    A very interesting article with many good ideas. I have done the lemon water for a long time it seems to help with my chronic post nasal drink. Some other items on the list are also definitely worth trying. Getting up 90 min. Before leaving for work is not for every one. I am lucky. I am now semi-retired. After a working life of more than 55 years plus school years, I am so tired of people saying early rising is great. If that was the case why has my body never adjusted to getting up earl You? It sure had plenty of practice. My most productive and creative time still begins about 7-8 and about 1-2 at night. And now I don’t have to fight it any more. I don’t sleep til 10 in the morning, but some mornings I don’t wake up til 8 or 8:30. But for the first time in my life I am feeling rested for most days. Not everyone is a morning person and all the practice in the world doesn’t seem to make a difference. So some of that list works well at night time too. Good luck to all of you.

    Thank you for these wonderful suggestions. As they are just suggestions and your disclaimer clearly states that you are not health care professionals. I do think that many people who are not health care professionals can have accurate knowledge of health, and I believe you are to be one of them. I feel bad for you that you have to weed through some nasty negative comments from wanna-be bloggers just to read the thoughtful comments though. What ever happened to, “If you can’t say anything nice….?” Anyway, I will make a list of your suggestions and give them a try. I’m sure I will find some that make a significant positive difference for me. Again, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

    So hit your teeth with acid (lemon water) , then brush them, then hit them with acid again as well as liquified sugar (green smoothie). Damaging my teeth and eroding the enamel would not make me a morning person at all.
