This Coronavirus Lockdown has become the game-changer in my life. I am able to differentiate the person I was before two months and the person I am today. Embarking a further step during this pandemic, I have been able to emphasize my time on my development.
Experiencing the boredom for many days, I came to understand the benefit of my growth. With the sense to share what I have learned and what I am doing, I believe it would be beneficial for you as well.

Why Should I Bother Sharing My Experience to You?
Well, I love the saying “Ideas Worth Spreading”.
Though it may not bring a groundbreaking change at the first in you, I can assure you that it actually works. You can empower your life by refueling the motivation that is within you at the very start of the day. A small change in you is the reason you see big results in the future.
Without further due, Let’s dive into my morning routine, shall we?
This is my past morning schedule. Due to the coronavirus, I have had to change a bit, which I would like to discuss below.
Also, I would highly encourage you to create a morning routine so you can stay focused from the first minute of your day.
Commencing My Day with Morning Rituals
“Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
After 7 hours of sleeping, it’s time to wake up at 6. There is a popular saying that “Morning Shows the Day”, which is why I make my bed as soon as I wake up. It makes me feel that I have achieved something with the beginning of the day.
After my refreshment, I find myself in the center of my journal.
Journaling and To-Do Lists
Keeping Journal has made me realize the importance of my development as well as has raised my self-awareness. Even more, having a sense of gratitude and writing it on paper makes me feel wonderful. This reminds me of the movie Life is Beautiful and I feel that I don’t want to miss even a single second of my life.
I go through the to-do lists that I had prepared the earlier day and make a Time blocking chart. This really helps me to keep me with my daily goals and stay on track.
As per RescueTime, Time blocking is the practice of planning out every moment of your day in advance and dedicating specific time “blocks” for certain tasks and responsibilities. While a standard to-do list tells you what you need to do, time blocking tells you when you’re going to do it.
These to-do lists are just a small part of my yearly goals but are the most effective ones for my growth. These golden goals have the power to enrich me for a prosperous life. With this positive mentality, I choose to accept all the Challenges Being a Millennial and move on.

Exercise and Meditation
I don’t want to miss the opportunity to magnify my health. So, it’s time for some exercise and meditation.
The 15-minute exercise helps me out to become proactive and enhance my physical fitness.
Consequently, I do meditation for about 15 minutes. During the past few days, I have even expanded my meditation time to around 20 minutes.
As profound as it is, practicing meditation has brought more effective changes in me than I thought it could. I am able to discover my potential and live my life with the fullest. The most significant part is that I am able to concentrate on every section of my surroundings which is helping me to remain self alert.
Notably, I am able to observe the positive impact of doing regular exercise and meditation.
I found this as a medium to Know Better About Myself.
Practicing meditation has benefitted me immensely and would love to recommend you to do the same.
Life was boring for me during normal days. I didn’t want to explore the outer world as I was always busy with the gadgets I have.
Whoever knew that this pandemic could bring such a productive change in me?
I have started jogging. While jogging I find myself pitched into the serendipity of nature. Listening to birds chirping and allowing myself to flow with the smooth movement of fresh air makes me feel linked with nature. Furthermore, refreshing my old memories with the smell of raw soils has now become the source of my happiness.
It has made me feel connected to the world, nature where I live.
“I’ve turned into one of those people who go jogging in parks that I used to hate.”
Face the Mirror and Laugh
Morning is the perfect time to face yourself. What do you do facing the mirror?
I don’t know about you, but I laugh. I laugh out loud with a sense of success. I dare to challenge myself. I go for self-talk and discover even more about me.
Science claims that laughing releases endorphin hormone that helps to keep our immune system stronger. I visualize my day over there and get back to my room to make those accepted challenges come true. Investing in Yourself is the smart move you ever do for your growth.
And as a result, I have been able to make it happen.
To explore the best part of me, I don’t consider myself to be too strict. It reminds me of Steve Job’s saying while facing the mirror. “What if today had been my last day?” I then promise myself, I am here to contribute to the world and even if today is my last day, I will do something that can benefit others in a positive way.
This was all about my Morning Routine.
“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.”
How do you start off your day? And do you have any suggestions for me to improve upon my morning routine? I would love to hear your suggestion in the comment! 🙂
