Contrary to popular belief, a morning routine is likely to inspire creativity at work. Many writers, artists, successful people from all walks of life, attribute their ability to focus on the job at hand, first thing in the morning, to their morning routine habit.

In a post written by Mark McGuinness at the 99%:
Mark talks about his morning routine and how once his favorite tune starts on his iPod, at his desk each day, he is ready to knuckle down and get into it. He also refrains “But the chances are you’re living proof of one of the great paradoxes of creativity: that the most extraordinary works of imagination are often created by people working to predictable daily routines”. This post also mentions the morning routine of Le Corbusier, Ingmar Bergman and Haruki Murakami.

Writes about how her most productive time is by working in PJs in the morning and if her routine changes and she dress’s etc before sitting down to write, creativity is much harder to come by.
In summary of morning routines at work to inspire creativity,
It seems people who make a habit of having a morning routine habit, depend on it for all number of reasons. Getting out the door on time and fitting more into their day, Social and family oriented reasons and of course, the ritual in lead up to a day filled with creativity and productivity.
My morning routine habit inspires my creativity in a way that, by knowing I have left my home organized, ready for my return home from work and that I can get my family ready for their day, by following my morning routine habit, instead of having to think, what I’m having to do each step of the way.
It all flows like clock work, leaving me unstressed and not thinking, did I forget something. I highly recommend you experiment with your morning routine and see your morning at work improve, with each way you improve your morning routine.
