Drinking water as soon as you wake up in the early morning is a very healthy technique especially when you add some lemon to it, it even makes this practice better and healthier.
Lemon is well-known to have top qualities and excellent health benefits that will condition your internal body earlier starting your day. Make sure to make use warm water as this is much more advisable than cold water to prevent stomach shock.

Stop the routine of just getting up and directly going to the shower room every morning, and start investing a few minutes of your time to do some stretching routine.

6. Begin with few moments of silence
Start your early morning with a couple of minutes of silence. Doing this will certainly help you clear your head and organize your ideas and thoughts prior to begin your day, which will boost productivity.
7. Never skip breakfast
Make a routine to eat a good and healthy breakfast. Your body needs minerals and vitamins to help you make it through the day without feeling extremely exhausted. Pick something healthy and balanced morning meal that will certainly help your metabolism, boost energy, and keep you alert and focus throughout the day.

Immediately after breakfast, spend a couple of minutes reviewing your priorities for the day. This will help you attain things in perspective and plan your day so that you can make a more productive day and better use of your time.
Goal setting is very important in all parts of our life, but most importantly, it is one of the best practices and habits you should be practicing every morning. Make certain to note the important things to do and organize them according to how you’d want to focus on those tasks. Establish time frames and action plans to make those things you might have missed on the previous day.
9. Digest inspirational readings

Choose your favorite quotes from people and author you like and admire.

Yoga, is good and helpful exercise as this allows us to connect with our self, and keeping our body fit and makes our mind healthy.
11. Clear your mind
Make it a habit to stop, clear your thoughts of any diversion and get inner peace. Just do not overdo it as you could put yourself into a trance. The best technique is to think about yourself, simply you and attempt to forget all things around for a bit.
12. Leave early and same time every morning
