You probably have a pretty consistent morning routine at this point.
Hit the snooze button a few times.
Roll out of bed.
Sleepily prep for your day.
With an assist from some smart tech, though, you can revamp your morning routine and wake up with ease and energy. Get ready to carpe diem!
Technology can help you kick off your day the moment you open your eyes. A voice-activated assistant can wake you up with a preset alarm clock, tell you the weather before you choose an outfit, and check your calendar for appointments and events. You can also schedule a morning routine where your assistant tells you the day’s news as you get ready.
If you’re a sleepyhead who needs a more gentle wake-up call, consider connecting Philips Hue smart lightbulbs to your Google Home. With this connected setup, you can program commands through the Google Assistant app on your phone to have the assistant gradually turn on your colored lights, mimicking the sunrise.
Then, once you’re up and at ’em, your Google Home or Amazon Alexa can start your morning brew on your smart coffee maker, which uses Bluetooth or WiFi to connect to your network. The Behmor Connected Coffee Brew System is a techie favorite. It even works with Amazon Dash, which automatically reorders coffee when you’re running low!
By connecting your assistant to your phone, smart lights, smart fridge, and workout machinery, you can form a healthy routine that gives you the energy you need to seize the day!
Need more time to get in the zone before you grab your morning brew?
Mindfulness and meditation apps can help you catch a moment of peace before you dive into the commitments of your day. From guided meditation to simple gratitude reminders, there is a solution for your every need, whether you need to get energized or find that inner calm. If you want to make mental health your top priority each morning, replace your regular alarm with a meditation app like Beditations, which can wake you up with a guided meditation to help you ease from your peaceful sleep into a grounded state of mind before you even leave your bed.
You can even connect some apps, like Calm, to your smart home assistant to start your morning meditation from bed with a simple voice command. Making mindfulness part of your morning routine can help you start your day off on the right foot.
Healthy living can be hard without a little assistance. Smart tech can help!
Set scheduled routines on your smart home assistant that remind you to take medications or vitamins, keep hydrated, or crush your morning workout. You can also connect meal planning and fitness tracking apps to your assistant.
After you’ve woken up, meditated, and gotten your dose of the daily news, head to your Samsung fridge with Family Hub, which allows you to see inside your fridge with multiple cameras and share notes with family members. A smart fridge can help keep track of your healthy eating plans and connect to the internet for advice on fresh breakfast options. As a bonus, it even makes it easier to stay on top of your grocery inventory so you can maintain a stock of healthy foods to make meal prep and healthy eating easier.
The secret to waking up well? A smart home assistant that can create and automate nearly every aspect of your morning and give you more control over your days. By connecting your assistant to your phone, smart lights, smart fridge, and workout machinery, you can form a healthy routine that gives you the energy you need to seize the day!
Remember, though, that technology should support the things you already do or want to do. Try not to overengineer your morning—and don’t be afraid to make adjustments to ensure you’re getting the most out of your tech. Once you master your best tech-aided routine, you’ll know that you’re setting yourself up to have your best day yet, every day of the week.
