Which morning sounds better to you—a calm, peaceful morning where you feel inspired to get your day started and work on your goals, or a frantic morning rush where you’re dreading the thought of doing any work at all? There’s a pretty obvious choice, right? Luckily, there are easy ways to generate the positive momentum you need to kickstart your day each morning. And all you need is a simple motivation app you can easily download onto your phone to make it happen.
Transform your morning routine with an inspiration and motivation app. Below are ten motivation apps designed to spark your morning for success and make sure you feel completely in control of your life.
Whether it’s to rev up your “go-get-em” attitude or bring calm energy to your morning routine, you’re certain to find something that creates the perfect atmosphere for your daily success. And once that happens, don’t be surprised when you find your entire day going smoothly as well.
So, take a peak, choose a motivation app, and see how you can create an amazing morning for yourself.
1. Unique Daily Affirmations
Rather than starting your day groggy and unmotivated, flip the script with some affirmations designed to get your mindset prioritized for success. Each morning, you’ll get a fresh affirmation to guide you forward. So, you’ll always have something new to focus on to get your gears moving for positivity and good mood.
Plus, you can even record your own affirmations if you get inspired to add personal insight. So, make sure to check this out for a simple way to motivate your mornings.
If you’re looking for affirmations to get your day going strong, even Hal Elrod (the author of “The Miracle Morning”) has his own affirmation added to this motivation app for you to use.
Additionally, ThinkUp has a tracking method to see which affirmations you’ve listened to. And the idea is to get in as many affirmations as possible to load your head with positivity and completely change your way of thinking. So, this up-and-coming app has a lot going for it when it comes to not only improving your mornings but also staying motivated throughout your entire day as well.
Motivational Quotes and Speeches Apps
3. Motivate: Daily Motivation
How much more motivated can you start your day than with a motivational speech itself?
With thousands of speeches on success, fitness, productivity, and more, jam-packed together into a single easy-to-use app, you can expect your mornings to be FAR more inspirational than ever before. In particular, the daily videos are short, to the point, and designed to quickly get your motivation raring to go.
Available on iOS.
4. Motivation – Daily Quotes
What makes this app special is both the combination of literally thousands of motivational quotes and the non-garden-variety of quotes you’ve likely never seen before. So, you’ll see more than just the usual “You miss 100% of all the shots you don’t take.”
And here’s why that’s good—it’s easy to become numb to the same repetitive messages all the time (no matter how inspirational), but this app avoids that problem completely by giving you brand new quotes for motivation and positivity every morning.
Vision Board Motivation Apps
5. iWish Bucket List
Visual reminders of your goals can be a very powerful way of driving up your motivation each morning. All it takes is a glance at your vision board to remind you “why” you’re getting up and working each morning. Even better—you’ll instantly have more drive to get your day going because of it.
iWish is particularly impressive because not only does it let you add images to represent your goals, but it also lets you track them and keeps a running history of your completed goals as well. And this combination of seeing your past success and future goals is definitely a strong way to get you going.
Available on iOS.
What I like about Visuapp is that it focuses on creating balance with your goals. And it does this with what it calls the “feng shui” board. Basically, it breaks up your life into 9 parts: money, fame, relationship, family, health, creativity, knowledge, career, and travel. And you simply pop a picture directly into each one, and with a quick peek, you instantly know what you need to work on to create the ideal life you want. Definitely simple and easy for anyone to use.
7. Smiling Mind
Australia is known for its dangerous wildlife and now, for its mindfulness app as well it seems.
Used happily by over 5 million people, Smiling Mind will help you get in tune with your body and mind each morning and help you regain a sense of control. And the best part is that the app says you only need 10 minutes of your morning to make it happen.
Check out the app that millions of people are already benefitting from every day, and soon enough, you may even start to look forward to getting your mornings going.
8. Mindfulness Coach
This app was designed to reduce stress in even military vets, so it’s safe to say that it’s a powerful way to instill a sense of calm and relaxation in your mornings as well. There’s even a neat little feature where your progress is visualized as a tree that’s growing. And this makes it easy to see just how far along you are in creating a stress-free life through the exercises it shares.
It goes without saying: if you can get your morning to start in a relaxing manner, the rest of your day is likely to follow suit as well.
Available on iOS.
If your mornings are hectic rushes, then you probably need a way to slow things down. That way, you can actually take things in and make sure you’re working on goal-oriented tasks the rest of the day, instead of being swept up in the hustle-and-bustle of your morning rush. That’s where Omvana comes in.
Start your day with a simple guided meditation to bring some calm to your mornings. You can even add binaural beats to the mix to induce an “alpha-wave” state, which is supposed to create a “relaxed alertness” in your state of mind. Doesn’t that sound much better than a mad dash through your morning routine?
10. Ten Percent Happier Meditation
Straight from the Apple store:
“10% Happier is specifically geared to newcomers and skeptics, like its founder—TV anchor and best-selling author Dan Harris—used to be. It uses straight talk and a sense of humor to help you focus on sleeping better, reducing stress, and boosting focus.”
The great thing about this app is that if you upgrade to a paid subscription, you literally have a meditation coach to guide you—and that’s pretty amazing (which is why they say on their website, “a daily meditation coach in your pocket”).
The reviews for this app are very positive, so I’d suggest you check this out if ever experience stress as part of your morning routine.
Available on iOS.
