There are lots of articles on the internet such as "what to do after bed in the morning" or "Morning routine". Although they are helpful, I often incorporate few of those articles in my routine.
Here, I'm talking about how to change these habits to good and productive ones because the way we start our day can set a tone for rest of the day.

1. Coffee Intakes
Most of us rely on a coffee to wake us up and to feel energetic. But the Cortisol (a stress hormone that increases sugar in the bloodstream) levels are at their peak in the bloodstream in the first 30 minutes after waking up.
It gives us a natural boost of energy and alertness. By drinking coffee immediately after waking up, the caffeine will force your body to produce less cortisol. So the best time to enjoy your cup of coffee is after 9.30am.
Replace coffee with water or juice. Orange and apple are delicious mix.
2. Leaving Bed Unmade
Sleeping on a bed well made feels good. Sometimes, we say does it make any difference?
Yes! It does. According to Charles Duhigg it makes a hell lot of difference.
In his book “The Power of Habit” he states that adopting the habit of making your bed every morning will likely to increase your productivity for the rest of the day. And the people who make their beds more likely to have a greater sense of well-being and stronger skills at sticking with a budget.
Therefore, if you want to be more productive successful and happier, make your bed in the morning.
3. Pressing Your Phone First
Sometimes, one is tempted to surf the internet, social media especially. Along with being bad for your mental health, mindlessly scrolling through your social media feeds right after you wake up is a surefire way to lose track of time (and your focus) in the morning.
Perhaps, inadvertently you find yourself holding your phone immediately you wake, try and play music as you kick-start your day with some workouts or yoga
4. Not Eating Breakfast
We’ve all heard the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Well, people don’t say that just because. Eating a healthy breakfast helps you start your day on the right foot and gives you energy to power through the day.
