Morning are extremely important. A day’s foundation is built on it. How you choose to spend it predicts the rest of your day and decides the course of your life ahead. Each morning begins with new hope and multiple opportunities. It gives you another chance to get it right.

The healthiest people I know embrace this truth and use it to their advantage. They have effective morning rituals that improve their well-being and provides them with a purpose. Most of these people read something positive in the morning. Some read religious scripture while others read inspiring books, articles and quotes.

While I walk, I come across people, young and old, performing yoga, exercising or simply listening to religious discourse on their phones, it restores my belief in morning rituals.

The ritual of reading in the morning helps them feed on knowledge and insight. It not just helps them start a day on a positive note, it also proves to a gateway to productive ideas. For a blissful life, start each day with a positive piece of literature and end it the same way.

Morning routines also help to focus on various tasks, it helps to build the momentum of the day. Once you get your routine in order, you will be able to feel everything come alive. For an easy-going morning, reduce the number of decisions you make. A full night’s rest and a healthy breakfast are a crucial part of the routine.

The morning rituals of successful people sets them apart from the average lot as they make the hours count. Exercise has the power to make both the mind and body healthy. A person who works out regularly will have more energy than others as exercise releases endorphins, also known as the brain’s feel-good transmitters.

There are two simple steps to follow a morning routine — First is to chalk out the course of your next day before you go to bed, the decisions to make include what to eat for breakfast, what clothes to wear and what to take to work. Second, try to build a basic routine and incorporate it in your daily life.

I go to Sukhna Lake everyday for my morning walk ritual. While I walk, I come across people, young and old, performing yoga, exercising or simply listening to religious discourse on their phones, it restores my belief in morning rituals. It also reminds me of a Diana Ross number – Touch Me in the Morning.
