How To Start A Daily Routine (To Become Your Highest Self)

Let’s dive into how you start a daily routine to become your highest self.

Like I've said before....routines are your superpower. Routines have the power to make you who you are and who you want to become. 

Pick the right routine and celebrate the rewards. Choose the wrong one and you’ll face the negative consequences of lack of progress with little to no productivity.


What Is a Good Daily Routine?

A good daily routine is a group of habits that don't change no matter the circumstances. Whenever you perform a routine the activities are usually completed as a series of steps and don't stray from the normal order or sequence.

Examples of a Daily Routine

A good daily routine is any activity that you find helpful, relaxing, engaging or stimulating. For example, reading, exercising, cooking, organizing and cleaning are routines.

Activities that make you feel your highest, best self are the ones that level up your lifestyle. To make it easier for you I created a free, printable one page planner for you - get here:


Daily Routines for Becoming Your Best Self

Here are four examples of routines that align with becoming your best self:

4 Daily Routines for Becoming Your Best Self

  1. Drink a glass of warm water with lemon every morning
  2. Filling up a thermos or water bottle and drink all the water by the end of the day
  3. Take 15 minutes mini-breaks to rest, recharge or relax
  4. Choose your outfit the night before to make getting dressed each morning a quick and seamless experience

Here's the most important part: these are self-care related habits. When you take care of yourself, first, you're ready to take care of everything else on your to-do list.


Why Should You Start a Daily Routine?

You should start a daily routine in order to design your outcomes instead of only reacting to what happens to you in life. We all have different dreams and goals. By creating a routine to support those intentions you'll literally reap the rewards of your progress.

    How to Start a Daily Routine

    First, ask yourself, “What do I want to accomplish?” 

    Next, write out the first couple of steps it takes to achieve the task or intention. A word of caution here - you don’t have to have every single step figured out. General outcomes you’re striving for are perfectly fine!

    Also, be sure to Include activities that truly align with attaining the result.

    Now be consistent with your actions. But remember to have fun with your daily routines! 

    Of course, track your progress and be kind to yourself with a reward once you’ve achieved consistency.

    Finally, repeat the above steps and make adjustments, if necessary, until you find the right fit.

    What Daily Routines Work Best?

    The best routines align with your intentions or the ‘why’ behind the reason for starting a daily routine. However knowing what actions to start, add or stop can be challenging. 

    I know how it feels when certain habits no longer work and stop providing the results I was looking for. Remember, you’re free to adjust a system anytime its no longer serving you or your ultimate purpose.

    How to Narrow Down Choices for a Routine

    A simple way to narrow down routine choices is by tracking your progress. Either you're getting closer to your goals or you're not. When you track results you’ll see patterns to help you decide what actions stay and what go.
