How To Use This Morning Routine Checklist
Every morning, you have a new opportunity for a fresh start and new beginnings. And when you intentionally choose how to spend your mornings, you get to set the foundation for the day ahead.
Mornings are your chance to embrace your inner magic.
A morning routine helps you to cultivate feelings of peace, calm, joy, and love within, allowing these positive emotions to spill out into your outer world. It also gives you the chance to create a mindset of strength, resilience, and stability, so no matter what external circumstances you encounter, you’ll be able to stay true to yourself and your path.
To help you create a morning routine that truly serves and supports your mind, body, and spirit, I’ve created a free morning routine checklist for manifesting your dreams and desires. This weekly checklist includes 11 activities you can easily incorporate into your morning routine to lift your vibrations and start the day on a positive note.
And if you don’t have a lot of time, that’s okay! Many of these activities can be combined, and most take just a couple minutes at most to complete. Some, like expressing gratitude, you can do while showering, eating breakfast, and getting ready for your day.
Use this morning routine checklist to help you stay on track of your goals. You don’t have to do every single item on this list every day, but try to see if you can incorporate at least five items into your morning each day. And remember, some of these items can be done together or while you’re getting ready for the day, so it won’t take you up a lot of extra time.
And know this: the time you do spend on these activities is 100% worth it. The very best thing you can do for yourself every morning is to lift your vibration so you feel as if you already have it all. You’re already successful. You’re already abundant. You’re already loved. You’re already everything you can imagine and so much more. The small amount of time you spend on each of these practices will have long-lasting positive effects on your inner and outer worlds.
Below, I explain each item on the checklist in a little more detail so you know exactly how to incorporate it into your morning routine.
Morning Routine Checklist For Manifestation
Most of the items on this list aren’t things you have to do every single morning. However, if I had to pick one single thing that you should do daily for manifestation, it’s expressing gratitude. Why? Gratitude and love are the highest vibrations. When you express gratitude, you’re essentially telling the Universe, “More of this please.” So if you show appreciation for the money you already possess, you open yourself up to receiving more. If you show appreciation for your health, you allow more good health to flow to you. And if you express thankfulness for all the love you get to experience in your daily life, you open the door to receiving even more love, both from outside sources and from within.
Luckily, expressing gratitude doesn’t have to be a complicated practice! As you get ready in the morning, you can simply choose to focus on the things you love and appreciate. You might show your sincere thankfulness for this brand new day as soon as you wake up. You can also have a dedicated gratitude journal in which you write three things you’re grateful for each morning.
Positive affirmations are empowering statements rooted love, joy, and confidence. They’re designed to uplift and encourage while boosting your self-belief and supporting your mental and emotional well-being. Positive affirmations can also lift your vibration and help you get into receiving mode. You can use positive affirmations in your manifestation morning routine in the same ways you express gratitude: repeat affirmations throughout your morning and write a few down you want to focus on for the day. To help you remember, you might leave post-its in visible spots throughout your house with uplifting affirmations written on them.
There are several ways you can journal for manifestation. My personal favorite is scripting. Scripting is the practice of writing about your dreams and desires in story-like form, as if you already possess everything you want to manifest. So if you want to manifest love, you might write about a day in your dream life with the love of your life. You could also write about the first time you meet your future partner or even your first date. The possibilities are endless. The key is to write as though everything you want is happening right now in this present moment. (And also be sure to allow yourself to feel all of the positive emotions that come with it!)
Don’t have a lot of time in the morning for a long journal entry? That’s okay. You can combine several practices on this list for a quick five-minute journaling session. For instance, you could write down three things you’re grateful for, three positive affirmations, your daily intentions, and one small step you’ll take today to manifest your dreams.

Meditation itself is a powerful addition to your morning routine, whether it’s a mindfulness meditation or a dedicated manifestation meditation. A mindfulness meditation will allow you to ground yourself to the present moment and cultivate a sense of calm, peace, and stability. For a dedicated manifestation meditation, you can include visualization, affirmations, gratitude, releasing limiting beliefs, and letting go. Read my how-to guide below to learn more about how to practice meditation for manifestation.
Visualization can easily be incorporated into your meditation practice or tied in with your vision board. You don’t necessarily have to do a long visualization practice every day, but it can be helpful to practice visualization a few times a week. You might visualize a day in your dream life, allowing yourself to experience it using all of your senses. You can also visualize specific scenarios, like getting the job of your dreams or an incredible first date. As you visualize, remember to feel all of the positive emotions associated with your visualization, and carry those good vibes with you as you step into your day.
Set Daily Intentions
Daily intentions are kind of like mini daily goals. Your intentions should align with your ultimate, overarching dream of who you want to be and how you want your life to look. You can set your intentions based on your specific circumstances of the day, or you can choose a more universal intention to focus on.
Here are a few examples of daily intentions to help you get started:
- Today, I will be present in every moment today.
- I will be my most authentic self in all moments.
- I will accomplish everything I focus on.
- I will accept all opportunities that come my way.
- In all moments, I will find things to be grateful for.
- I will be the highest version of myself.
- I will spread kindness in my words and actions.
A vision board is a collection of words and/or images that represent your highest self living your ideal life. Common components of a vision board might include your career, relationships, home, car, health, wealth, spirituality, lifestyle, hobbies, self-care activities, and anything that represents the life of your dreams. You can create a vision board on poster board, printer paper, a bulletin board, or even on your phone; your options are truly limitless. Take a few minutes in the morning to look at your vision board. Align with the positive emotions you associate with the images and words: love, freedom, joy, peace, abundance. Allow these feelings to permeate your cells so they’ll stay with you throughout your day.

Raising your vibration means to align yourself with the emotions of already having what you desire. Love, gratitude, joy, peace, and freedom are all positive emotions you can carry with you throughout the day. All of the practices on this morning routine checklist will help you with raising your vibration, but you might also include some additional practices that you know make you feel good. These practices could include reading a chapter of a book, listening to music or a podcast, or simply sitting down for breakfast with your family.
If you have an extra minute or two, watch a funny YouTube video or find silly memes to send to your best friend. Start the day on a positive note!
Talk To The Universe
This is one of the most commonly overlooked aspects of manifestation: the simple act of talking to the Universe. Some people call it prayer, but if you’re not comfortable with that term, you can simply call it communicating. How can the Universe help you today? Do you need a little extra strength? Could you use some reassurance that you’re on the right path? Do you need a sign of alignment or gentle nudge in the right direction? Instead of keeping these thoughts and feelings within, tell the Universe what you need. You might be surprised at how quickly the Universe responds through signs, symbols, and loving messages.
Choose One Small Step To Take Today
This is another one of those simple yet overlooked aspects that can make a profound difference in receiving your desired manifestations. An important part of manifestation is taking inspired action. This is action you take based on your deep inner knowing. Each day, you have the opportunity to take small steps toward your dreams. A small step could be creating a 30-day plan for one of your goals. It could mean sending an email to someone you hope will agree to be your mentor. It could mean dressing up in clothes that make you feel good and taking pictures for your dating profile. This small step could truly be anything, as long as it comes from a place that feels good and right to you.
The all-or-nothing mentality can be tempting, but it can also quickly lead to burnout. Small steps aren’t as seductive, but just imagine this: if you take one small step a day for the next 30 days, in a month, you’ll be 30 steps ahead of where you are now.
At the top of the morning routine checklist, you’ll notice a section dedicated to choosing a word of the week. Here, choose a word that aligns with how you want to do, feel, or be throughout the week. Choose your word on the first morning of the new week, and don’t try to force anything. See if the word comes naturally to you.
Here are a few examples for words you might choose:
