Many of us wake up without much of a plan. Often, our morning routine goes something like this: Roll out of bed after hitting snooze 2-3 times, turn on the coffee maker, quickly check email and social media, maybe scrawl out a mile-long to-do list (in no particular order of urgency), and—once amply caffeinated—frantically attempt to tackle everything on said list. Rinse and repeat.

But winging it isn’t necessarily the most effective way to start the day—and it can often leave you prone to burnout or feeling like you’re constantly playing catch up. That’s why productivity experts are consistently extolling the virtues of creating a sustainable morning routine.

Morning routines can be the perfect opportunity to create a sense of balance and control before you officially start work—setting the tone for a productive and rewarding day. They don’t have to be complicated or time-consuming either. It could be as simple as stretching, showering, or reading 10 minutes of fiction. The only real “rule” is that your morning routine be intentional, relatively consistent, and leave you feeling better than you did before.

Need some inspo? We asked eight of the best, brightest, and busiest health and nutrition pros to share their indispensable morning routines. One thing that’s consistent throughout? High-quality supplements.

Serena Poon, CN, CHC, CHN

Serena Poon, CN, CHC, CHN, is a nutritional energy practitioner, in which she fuses her expertise as a celebrity chef, certified nutritionist, and reiki master to serve her clients.

“A morning routine can really set up the rest of your day, so a practice that feels in alignment with you is the first step towards success. The first thing I do every morning before I even get out of bed is my gratitude practice. I start off thanking my angels and my guides, then I connect to a short list of things I’m grateful for. I create an energetic connection between my thoughts and physical body and perform reiki on myself, which helps ground and center me for the day.

“Then I have about 24-30 ounces of warm water with fresh lemon. As we sleep, we can lose up to a liter of water, from simply breathing! The water hydrates my body and works to cleanse, detox, and wake up my digestive system. About 20 min after my water, I’ll have some fresh squeezed celery juice. In between, I’ll do some light movement, stretching, walking, or use a rebounder, followed by 8 minutes on my PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) mat.

“Then I take a variety of supplements to support my adrenals, balance my stress, calm my mind, and help bring focus to my brain and energy to my body. I also make matcha to sip as I tackle my communications (emails, texts, DMs). It’s warming and comforting, and I love that it contains antioxidants and calming L-theanine.”
