Tips for Creating a Fall Morning Routine

Morning routines allow you to get a positive, productive start from the moment you wake up. With an organized routine, you can dedicate enough time to various tasks in the morning, from writing in your journal to doing yoga or another form of exercise.

In the fall season, your morning routine is often much different from the hotter spring and summer months. This is when the weather changes and you want to bundle up, have a hot cup of coffee, and really focus on improving your health for the cozy season.

Here are some tips for creating a fall morning routine.

Write in a Journal 

When you are creating a new morning routine for the fall season, start small with just one action. Writing in a journal is a great way to start because it doesn't require you to purchase a lot of supplies, and can be done anywhere. You can write in a journal, notebook, or even a document you save on your computer.

With journaling, you can choose the topic. You can write about what you plan to do that day, summarize what happened to you the day before, write a list of goals, write about your dream, or use journaling prompts.

Journaling provides clarity and helps you to set intentions for the day.

Use a Daily Planner in the Morning

Another good activity for your morning routine is to write in a planner. You probably went on vacation in the summer and had more leisure time than you normally do, so the fall season is a good time to recollect your thoughts, examine your schedule, and set new goals.

Daily planners offer more than just a calendar, but allow you to make to-do lists, set goals, and figure out what tasks need to be performed to complete those goals. It helps you stay focused and productive, right from the beginning of your day. 

Express Gratitude 

It is highly recommended that you start practicing gratitude during your day, especially in the morning. Gratitude allows you to acknowledge the good things in your life and express them.

You can do this by writing down one thing you are grateful for in your journal for the morning, or you can make a list of 5-10 things you are grateful for each day.

Try a Morning Workout

It can be hard to force yourself to exercise early in the morning, especially when you have to set your alarm even earlier just to fit it in. But once you do it for a few days in a row, you will understand why it is so beneficial. You are releasing endorphins in the morning to put in a much better mood and give you tons of energy. It also gets it out of the way, so you don't have to worry about it later.

As the fall season approaches, consider your morning routine part of self-care. It is a great way to boost your mood, improve your mindset, and help you reach your goals.
