We can't all be morning people… but we can definitely try! A great day starts the second you wake up in the morning and therefore you must have a good morning routine.

However, if you are looking to find more balance in your life, then having a morning routine can really help you find that balance, as well aid in ensuring you wake up in time for work in the morning.
Here are some tips that can help develop a morning routine:
Doctors recommend eight hours of a sleep a night in order to get enough energy to get through the day. However, if you are a workaholic, then you probably go to bed thinking about work. Try to relax by watching your favorite TV show, listening to tranquil music, or reading a book.
An alarm clock is a key tool to waking up on time and establishing a healthy routine.Whether you decide to invest in an alarm clock or opt to simply set an alarm on your phone, a reliable alarm is vital to getting up on time in the morning.
You may feel rejuvenated with a little bit of exercise in the morning. You don't have to go all out – a simple routine of 10 jumping-jacks and 20 sit-ups will help you feel energized and ready to take on the world.
By saving your daily morning tasks for the night prior, you can save a good half hour in your morning routine. Try washing your hair and choosing an outfit the night before – you'd be surprised at how much time you save!
