Many people talk about the importance of a good morning routine and being productive from the moment that you wake up. But let's be realistic, mornings can be rough. Especially if you're not the type of person who jumps out of bed ready to take on the day. For some, it's the caffeine boost from their morning coffee that preps them for the rest of the day. But what if you're trying to cut back on your daily caffeine? Combining essential oils in a morning routine can be the perfect pick-me-up and substitute for your coffee fix.
How to Be More Productive in The Morning
The key to being more productive in the morning is to take care of yourself. At Scentered, we believe it's important to take the time for mindful moments for yourself and find your desired state using our invigorating scents found in our essential oils using our balms and candles. Read on for our tips on how to be more productive in the morning and how incorporating essential oils into your morning can give you a boost.
Make sure you're getting enough sleep
Chances are that your productivity will fall if you're sleep-deprived. Fatigue, difficulty concentrating and lack of motivation can all come from a poor night's sleep. Good sleep makes everything better and if you're getting enough, waking up and getting out of bed should become easier (although we're not saying it will be more fun). If you need help sleeping better and getting more consistent sleep - our SLEEP range may be beneficial for you. Read our guide on using essential oils to help you sleep.
Get some exercise
Having a regular workout routine has an impressive number of benefits - including more overall energy. Studies have shown that exercise on a workday makes people happier, less stressed out, and more productive.
