Many of us go through life each day feeling tired and depleted. We want to be happier and healthier, but it can feel overwhelming.

A mindset morning routine will help you clear cobwebs in your brain and make space for the things that are most important to you. Here’s what you need to know!

What is a growth mindset?

First, before we get into how to make a schedule, let’s explain “growth mindset.” A growth mindset is the belief that you can improve your talents and capacities over time.

All too often, we get stuck feeling like things will never change. You might think that you are limited when it comes to success. You might feel inferior to those around you. Challenges and obstacles might begin to seem like a closed door instead of an opportunity for growth. 

 

When we take just a little bit of time each day to focus on ourselves and our goals, we can challenge this mindset. Over time, we can forget about our limiting beliefs and start to adopt a growth mindset. In doing this, we can learn, grow, and achieve more than we thought possible!

 

How to make a schedule with a mindset morning routine! 

When building a daily mindset morning routine, you can start small. Even just five minutes is enough!

 

First, you’ll need to schedule some time to commit to your morning routine. We recommend putting a reminder into your phone to alert you when it’s time to start.  

 

Next, decide what you want to improve when it comes to your mind, body, and/or soul. Start with just one or two things. You can always add more later. Use your five minutes (or however long you’ve set aside) to work toward one or two of your top goals.

 

    • Do you want to incorporate exercise and movement to improve your physical and mental health? Do a few minutes of yoga, stretching, jumping jacks, push-ups, or dancing.
    • Is your goal to declutter your brain? Try writing down all your thoughts and ideas until you feel like a weight has lifted.
    • Is your goal to improve your mental health? Start with a guided meditation on your phone.
    • Do you want to improve your connection with others? Spend your morning minutes sending an encouraging message to a loved one or spending quality, intentional time with your family.

         

        Whatever you choose to do, try to stick with it for at least one month. Studies have shown that it takes a minimum of 18 days to form a habit, usually longer. The longer you can stick with it, the more results you will see!

        How a routine can help?

        When you have a daily routine that incorporates some mindful activities, you won’t even have to think about it – you’ll automatically be improving yourself each day. As you start to form good habits, you’ll quickly find yourself on the happier path to healthy!

        In addition to your mindset morning routine, it’s important to fuel your body and your brain with food that is good for you. One way to make this easier is to use ALOHA Subscribe and Save. You’ll always have healthy protein on hand and you won’t have to stress about what to eat for breakfast. Set it, forget it, and save while getting plant-based protein delivered to your door!
