It’s actually one of the best things to see the nature bloom, and also they get more time to complete chores without hurrying up that makes the mood high to be more productive throughout the day.

So give the body something which has some worth like oatmeal, chai seeds, nuts, berries, yoghurt, green tea, fruits, smoothies…
This makes you even more sure on having a great day ahead as you started your morning perfectly ;).
Have Breakfast like the King, Lunch like a Prince, Dinner like a pauper!
Ok, this is something we all should inculcate. What about Myths going on around calories.
Calories are important if one is trying to be fit or lean or to gain muscles but going till the earth’s end for the calculation is too much also people copy others in its intake but each one has different need, and there’s a proper formula for things to work right as wrong assumptions won’t take you anywhere and finally being frustrated seeing no change people quit and for the right details visit.

White Sugar → Coconut Sugar
Veg Oil → Coconut Oil

Maybe a childish one at that but it do work many times ;), Though this is just a small list:

(Chocs) Sweet Treats VS Black raisins = 21% of savings
(Cheese)Dairy VS Smoothie = 22% of savings
(Alcoholic/Beer)Drinks VS Refreshing fruit juices= 53% of savings

It may prove as motivation for some.
Pen down your findings and then find out a way to achieve them. Take up the challenge and promise to work on decided plan.
On feeling its too much of efforts think about why you decided to do it and on the mind-blowing results you would be getting and motivate yourself through it.
The matter is only on habits once we and our body gets accustomed it all becomes automatic without any efforts your morning routine will change forever.
Continuity is the key. Following for mere 2-3 days is of no use and re-starting things, again and again, is just procrastination and even that won’t lead you near to your aim.
Even for one week if the plan is followed with dedication and honesty I am sure it will bear the sweet fruits, and no longer you will remember that you are the very same person who hated morning hours ;).
