We all must've gone through that the best way to start your day is with a productive morning routine. But, what if you're too lazy to get out of bed?

Even though we might not be morning people, it's important that we still do something productive in the mornings because it sets us up for success during the rest of the day. Luckily, there are plenty of minimalist routines for busy people who can't find time to exercise or meditate in their mornings but want to make sure they have an effective and efficient morning nonetheless. Here are some different minimalistic routines that will help you feel more energized and less overwhelmed when you wake up!

  • Don't forget to sleep early! A night of well-rested sleep is very crucial for waking up refreshed and ready to start your day. If you're having trouble sleeping or feel like you can't fall asleep, check out our article on the best tips for falling asleep fast. Trust us, it works!


  • Try not to eat too much right before bedtime. Eating a heavier meal at least two hours before going to bed leads to poor digestion throughout the night (and guess where all that waste goes? You got it - into your bloodstream!).


  • In addition, this will leave you feeling lethargic in the morning because of low blood sugar levels, which makes getting out of bed difficult enough even if you did get sufficient amounts of sleep. To avoid this, try to limit your food intake to at least two hours before bedtime.


  • Eat healthily! A regular and balanced diet will give you the necessary nutrients for a productive day ahead. Eating whole foods ensures that you'll have enough energy throughout the morning and won't feel sluggish during any part of your workday.


However, don't forget about eating breakfast in time. If it's in the afternoon by the time you've woken up, opt for some snacks instead so that they can sustain your blood sugar levels until dinner comes around.

Don't stay on top of social media all night long when homework or other responsibilities await us when we return home from school/work! Make sure to be proactive with setting reasonable limits on the amount of time you spend on social media. Don't let your friends or family members guilt-trip you into staying up late because they want to chat with you.


We all know that sometimes it's hard enough to get eight hours of sleep every night, and if we don't, make sure we prioritize our well-being. There will be consequences (feeling like a zombie who can barely function at work/school) for those decisions made in the past, resulting in procrastination.

The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people isn’t talent or education, but their daily regimens! The more consistent one’s self-discipline, the greater chance that person will achieve what he sets out to win, whether losing weight or gaining muscle. Although life can feel hectic during the day, it's important to prioritize your sleep to avoid regrets when nighttime comes around. We all know how hard it is in today’s society because of technology and social media, making staying up late more tempting than we would like to admit!
