Many people follow a routine of dragging themselves from bed in the morning to go to work and dragging themselves back into the same bed very late at night. This kind of routine is shoddy and can significantly reduce productivity in all aspects of life.
If you want to live a fulfilling life, you need to have a morning routine that extends to the night before. It’s the reason many successful people have been able to stay on top of their game for decades.
That’s why we interviewed Jurgen Cautreels on what sort of full-power morning routine he has been using to supercharge his day. This was how the interview with Jurgen Cautreels went.
Jurgen Cautreels: Morning routines have been put to the test repeatedly. Results have shown that they can be the deal-breaker for having a productive day, especially in many professional fields such as sales, law, and leadership.
Even if you’re not in any professional field, the aim is to take control of your life and do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. To achieve this, it’s important to give yourself the opportunity every day, and that’s where daily routines come in.
I believe they’re daily habits that can influence how we feel the whole day.
Jurgen Cautreels: I don’t need to do too much to get up early in the morning. The most important thing is to make sure you plan ahead.
The second is to resist the urge to snooze your alarm when it rings. Even if you’re still feeling sleepy, get up and drink your morning cup of water.
It would help if you did not start planning your day after waking up. That’s for the night before. You should avoid making unimportant decisions and remember to spruce up your routine now and then to prevent monotony.
Jurgen: While coffee seems like the obvious answer, it’s not. Of course, I drink coffee, but I don’t depend on it to kick-start my day.
I’ve discovered that a cup of water and 30 minutes of exercise has the same jolting effect as caffeine. I also like to keep up with trends, whether in business or tech, by reading articles and news online.
Some of the people I’ve talked to in the past have different ways of supercharging their mornings. Some start by listening to music. For others, jogging seems to work, and some rare people find eating something they love a great way to supercharge their mornings.
Jurgen: As I’ve mentioned before, they start by drinking water. I drink mine plain and warm, but some prefer to add a dash of lime or honey.
After this, they move around as a way to loosen their body and get rid of that lethargy from sleep. This can be done by exercising or running.
After this, some immerse themselves in sensational experiences. While most people choose to meditate, listening to podcasts on stock analysis can have the same effect on others.
Jurgen: I’ve been using morning routines for more than eight years now, and at this point, it’s now what I call a success habit. That contributed a lot to achieving success in my life and career. I’ve noticed that my productivity has reduced, and I’m not the same man I was back then.

Productivity and success are all about mindset and routine. Don’t believe me? Look no further than some of the greats: Oprah, Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos.
