Being a successful blogger requires more than just aesthetically pleasing pictures and an active online presence; it means being very productive and extremely creative, even on those bad days when you barely have enough motivation to get out of bed. What makes a blogger successful is a commitment to their work, the determination to get the job done, and a dynamic and productive day that makes it all possible. So, here are some morning routines every accomplished blogger follows, that might help you have more constructive and successful mornings:
If you never have enough time to get everything done in the morning, the reason might simply be the fact that you don’t wake up early enough. Actually, many successful bloggers get up as early as 5 a.m. to have enough quiet time to enjoy their morning tea or coffee in peace and follow up on their morning routines before starting their workday. That way, their entire day is free for writing posts, taking pictures, interacting with their fans and simply relaxing once they’ve finished their job for the day.
As writing is an extremely important part of their job, many bloggers decide to write while they have breakfast or sip on their morning coffee. Whether it’s just a few sentences or a couple of paragraphs, many bloggers believe that you simply have to write something during the morning, no matter what that may be, as we tend to be the most creative right after we wake up. If you have an artistic job as well, doing a bit of work early in the morning might be a great way of letting your creative juices flow.
If you’ve ever wondered how every blogger seems to look so stunning and radiant, even after they’ve just woken up, it’s because they have a great skin care routine they religiously follow. As they’re aware of the importance of a flawless complexion, they make it a point to cleanse their skin thoroughly each morning and apply hydrating moisturizers and facial oils that are ideal for prepping their skin for makeup. Using the best skin care products possible, most beauty bloggers also opt for facial rollers and massagers that get their blood flowing, and give them a bright and glowing complexion.
Apart from keeping their brains active and unleashing their creativity, bloggers also like to stay physically active during the morning. Whether they head to the gym, work out at home or simply take their dog for a walk around the block, exercise helps them build a steady morning routine, improves their focus and attention, puts them in the right, healthy mindset, and helps them feel energized and ready to tackle the rest of their day. If you want to make your days more productive as well, it might be a good idea to incorporate a few light workouts into your morning routine.
If we start our day tired, grumpy and filled with negative thoughts, it can be very hard to change our mindset throughout the day. What’s more, we might end up feeling unhappy and irritated the whole day, which not only affects our work and our efficiency, but also has a negative impact on our relationships. That’s exactly why most successful bloggers read inspiring quotes or write in their gratitude journals early in the morning, to be able to take on their day with happy thoughts and a positive mindset.
While each one of us has different habits and our own unique rituals, it’s always useful to take a look at the morning routines of accomplished bloggers, and take some pointers and hints from their highly successful lives.
