10 Step-By-Step Healthy Morning Routine

1.Wake Up before dawn

First things’ first! Sleep well. Waking up early with no deep sleep will do no good. Make it a habit to doze off sooner to wake up before dawn. Remember not to hit the snooze button. Also, it is essential to be on a digital detox from the night before until you start with your work. The first few mornings might feel exhausted, but not to worry, this will eventually give you a better and early sleep. Just by waking up early, you feel motivated and notice the burning desire to make the most out of the day. Sounds magical, huh?

2.Drink water

The perks of drinking water immediately after you get off the bed are numerous. After a long night’s sleep, your body naturally feels dehydrated though you may not feel it. Drinking water (min. of 650 ml to 1000 ml) on an empty stomach refreshes your mind, fuels your brain, and won’t make you feel half-sleepy. Your brain cannot perform at its optimal level if you don’t hydrate yourself.

3.Move Your Body

The first 20 mins of your day should be spent on any intense exercise; Practice Yoga asana-s, go for a short run, a brisk walk or even a home workout – any activity that will wake your body. This will immediately uplift your mood, boost your confidence and keep you focused throughout the day. At the end of the activity, you will no longer want to get back to sleep, neither will you feel slumber.

4.Take a Cold Shower

Taking a cold shower releases endorphins, also known as happy hormones, keeping your mood favourable throughout the day. Cold showers also help in increasing your alertness, clarity and energy levels.

5. Stay in silence

Choose a comfortable and quiet spot and stay in silence for at least 10 minutes. Simply close your eyes and examine your breath. Making it a part of your morning routine will put you in the best state of mind and help you stay calm, energized, focused and a sense of well-being throughout the day.

6. Practice Gratitude

Keep a note to write your gratitudes. Every day make a list of 3 or 5 things you are grateful for in your life. Practising gratitude gives you a feeling of positivity. It supports your mental health, and studies show that people are happier when they practice gratitude.

7. Speak Affirmations

Speak affirmations to yourself every day. It helps you improve your self-confidence, and you will eventually fall in love with your positive side.

Below are some affirmations for success:

  •    I am a magnet for success in everything I do
  •    I am born to be prosperous
  •    I have control over my emotions, aspirations and capacities
  •    I trust in my potential for greatness
  •    I see all difficulties in my life as possibilities for growth
  •    My thoughts build my reality, so I concentrate on the things that will bring me       success
  •    I live an extraordinary life, and I only attract the best of everything.
  •    I am affluent in love, fortune and joy

8. Visualize

Take a few minutes, relax, sit and visualize your ambitions and goals coming true. The practice of visualization will get you to where you want to be in life. Visualization activates your subconscious creative mind and programs your brain to achieve your dreams.

9. Daily Dose Of Learning

All of us are aware that “Knowledge Is Power.” Spend 20 minutes in the morning to gain some knowledge that can help you move in the direction of your goals. Gain knowledge by reading a book or listening to a podcast.

10.Write Down Your Goals And Get Hustling

Often, we start the day on auto-pilot mode, not really understanding what we’re striving for to make it a fruitful day. The mystery to a more peaceful morning begins with writing down your goals the night before. Goal setting is a fundamental ingredient of staying successful. Write down realistic goals that are important and which you can accomplish by the end of the day. Writing down your goals improves your focus, organization, and productivity.
Once you are done with all the 10 step-by-step healthy morning routine, get to work as early as possible while the world is still asleep. Early morning working hours are referred to as the magical hours. Do the most challenging task during the early hours when there is nothing that can distract you. Remember, your brain is at the peak of energy and creativity in the early hours of the day.


Dr Kausthub Desikachar encourages you to keep trying as the first step towards adapting to the healthy morning routine. Although this will be challenging initially, once you practice these routine, everything else will become your cup of tea. Kausthub wishes you great success in achieving your dreams.
