Do you dread the morning hours? Do you feel like there's just not enough time to get everything done? If so, you're not alone. A lot of people find the morning to be the most challenging part of the day. But it doesn't have to be that way! With a little bit of planning, you can use your iPad to help streamline your morning routine and make things a lot easier. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips and tricks for getting the most out of your iPad in the morning. 

How to Get the Most Out of Your iPad in the Morning

What is a morning routine?

A morning routine is a set of habits that you follow every morning in order to start your day off on the right foot. A good morning routine should include both productive and relaxing activities so that you can feel refreshed and ready to take on the day.

There are many different ways to structure your morning routine. Some people prefer to do a mix of hard and easy tasks, while others prefer to stick to one type of activity. The best way to find what works best for you is to experiment a little bit and see what feels best.

Some common activities that can be part of a morning routine include:

  • eating breakfast
  • exercising
  • reading the news
  • meditating or practicing mindfulness
  • spending time with family or friends
  • getting organized for the day ahead
  • checking emails and voicemails

How can my iPad help?

iPads can be a great tool for helping with your morning routine. They are portable and easy to use, which makes them perfect for doing things on the go.

Here are 10 helpful ways you can incorporate your iPad into your morning routine:

1. Review your digital planner

Grab a full glass of water to start the day hydrated and review your daily plans on your digital planner. This will help give you a clear overview of what needs to be done and will help motivate you to get started on your day. One of the best things about iPads is their ability to help with organization. There are tons of great organizing apps available, as well as calendars and digital planners that can help you keep track of your day's activities.

2. Morning Yoga or Exercise

If you're someone who likes to exercise in the morning, iPads can help with that too. There are many different workout apps available, as well as videos that you can watch online. You can also use your iPad to track your progress as you work out. If you're not in love with the idea of exercise in the morning, follow along with a morning yoga routine like this one from Yoga with Adriene to get your body stretched and awakened for the day.  She has tons of great yoga videos on YouTube that are perfect for beginners. 

3. Listen to Positive Affirmations

Use your iPad to listen to positive affirmations while you get dressed or follow your skincare routine.  This will help you start your day on a positive note and set the tone for the rest of the day. Apps like I Am, Mantra, and Self Love are popular choices in the iOS App Store.

Pro-tip: you can program Shortcuts for Siri to run common actions easily.

4. Eat a healthy breakfast

iPads make it easy to find and cook breakfast recipes or eat on the go. There are plenty of breakfast recipes that can be cooked in a crockpot or Instant Pot, so you can have a hot meal even if you're short on time. You can also find healthy breakfast options like yogurt, fruit, and cereal that are easy to eat on the go. Make a healthy breakfast using some of your favorite recipes from Pinterest.  This is a great way to get in some extra fruits and vegetables first thing in the morning.

5. Hey Siri, what's the weather for today?

Have Siri check the weather forecast for the day so you can plan and dress appropriately. 

6. Check Traffic and Travel Conditions

Check the traffic conditions and plan your route for the best possible commute. If you take public transportation, use your iPad to check the schedule and plan your trip. 

7. Listen to an Audiobook or Podcast

Listen to an audiobook or podcast on your way to work or school. This is a great way to make use of your time and learn something new at the same time.

8. Morning Brain Dump

Write out a morning brain dump in your digital notebook. Writing a stream-of-consciousness (shoot for two or three pages) of everything that's on your mind can help you feel more organized and less stressed.

9. music for focus and productivity

Listen to instrumental music for focus and productivity. Check out this inspiring Spotify playlist

10. Use Meditation Apps

Take advantage of meditation apps like Insight Timer, Smiling Mind, or UCLA Mindful to quiet your mind, get in tune with yourself, and start the day off right. 

You don't have to do all of these things every day, but adding at least 2 or 3 to you morning routine is sure to help you get the most out of your morning, and your iPad.
