The life of a student can often be a hectic one. In between lectures, seminars, social events, and extra-curricular activities, it can be difficult to stay on top of it all but setting up a regular morning routine can help.
In this blog, we detail our top tips for organising your morning routine for you to get the most out of your university experience.
Prep the Night Before
The best thing you can do to make sure you establish and stick to a good morning routine is to prepare the night before.
This doesn’t need to be anything extensive. Having a look at your schedule for the next day and packing any items like a notebook or laptop will get you ahead of the game.
If you’re going to be out all day, prepping your lunch is also a great call, freeing up time in the morning and saving you money.
Try to Get a Set Amount of Sleep
This one can be tricky, given just how much the social aspect of university can take place in the evening, but aiming to get a set amount of sleep can really help.
Doing so will help cement your routine, get your body used to that rhythm, and make it easier to wake up in the morning.
Have a Regular Time You Wake Up
Speaking of waking up, setting a specific time to wake up is key to getting a jump on your day.
Take a look at your weekly schedule and figure out when would be a good time to wake up and get out of bed.
You ideally want a few hours to wake up properly, get ready and get to your classes.
Some days you might have more time than you need, but this time is yours to do whatever you would like!
Start with Some Exercise
Once you’re up, a good way to start the day is with some exercise.
Not only will this help increase your energy levels, exercise also has great benefits for mental health as well.
If you’re not one for the gym, a brisk walk around the block is just as good. If you’d rather stay at home, some simple yoga stretches will do the trick.
Find What Works for You
Now while these are good general tips, the best thing to do is find what works for you and your timetable.
Morning exercise may not be possible, or may not work for you, but getting up early and using that time positively is still important.
This could be reviewing some lecture notes, doing some extra reading, or even just doing something mindful to set yourself up for the day.
