Morning routines have the power to set the tone for your entire day. In fact, studies have shown that both your productivity and creativity are significantly affected by your mood. And while your mood is still subject to several other variables, a pleasant morning, more often than not, grows into a pleasant day.

To make your morning routine work for you, here are three tips to keep in mind:

Be Mindful About When You Start the Day

Some people like to wake up at 5 a.m., others at 7 a.m. There's really no magic hour that leads to a productive day—you have to be the one to decide what time works best for you. Just make sure you allot an hour and a half’s worth of allowance between waking up and when you're expected to start marching to the beat of the rest of the world.

Make Your Mornings Count

It’s easy to reach for your phone and check social media the moment you wake up, but while there’s a certain pleasure in scrolling through Instagram in bed, spare a few minutes doing something that also enriches you. A mental or spiritual exercise such as meditation, prayer, or plain reflection to your morning routine works. So does physical activity like exercise. As long as it makes you happy and gives you something to look forward to each day, go for it.

Prioritize Good Grooming and Hygiene

Part of setting the tone for your day is adequately preparing for it, and that includes doing a daily maintenance check of your hygiene and health—particularly, oral health. Neglect this and you’ll soon be troubled with cavities, plaque, and even bad breath. Don’t let these ruin your morning, and consequently, the rest of your day, by brushing your teeth with the new closeup All Around Fresh.

With regular use, it cleans deeply, lifts plaque, combats cavities, fights germs, and refreshes your mouth. Add this to your morning routine, and you’re more likely to spend the rest of the day with a smile.
