Mornings are dreaded by the vast majority of the population – if not for waking and going to work, then for getting to class on time. As busy as we all may seem, sometimes its good to stop and take a moment to appreciate the finer details of life or to set the mood for the rest of your day. Reflecting on a few words in the morning can help inspire, motivate, or put a smile on your face. We’ve gathered 57 good morning quotes to ensure your morning can in fact, be a good one. If not for you, then perhaps you know someone you can text to give them a good morning boost?
2. Hitting the Snooze Button
If you’ve ever used your snooze button, you’re quite familiar with this quote’s truth.
3. Listen to the Sounds of the World
This quote will inspire you to be more observant the rest of your day. Ever hear the saying “you were given two ears and one mouth so you can listen twice as much as you speak”? Something like that…
5. Prayer for a Lover
This is a great reminder of all the things you wish to remember to do for your one true love during the day. It has the feel of a prayer, but serves more as a reminder as to the amount of love you hold for someone.
8. To Determine the Outcome
Mornings definitely can help determine the outcome the rest of your day will have. If you’re in a good mood in the morning, chances are you’ll have a good rest of your day. If it starts out terrible, you’re looking at a bad day, my friend. It’s hard to get into a good mood once your mood’s been set for the day.
9. You’re Not Alone
Don’t feel despaired if you’re in a troubled mood. Remember that every morning gives you a new chance to start over. Every moment is a moment you can tell yourself “this is my life, I’m fixing it now”. Let go of the old, don’t be afraid of the new.
10. Unlock Your Life
Everyone has a spark within us – a spark of passion and potential that can only be let out by our selves. No one else can do it. It’s important to connect with your dreams, passion, potential, experience and wisdom in order to find your potential and seek the right motivation.
12. A Sun Soak
Watching the first rays of the early morning sun peek up at you from beyond the horizon is a truly enlightening engagement you can have with both the sun and the Earth. Think of the meaning behind this quote the next time you watch a sunrise, and see if you feel any different.
13. Just You, the World, and the Sunrise
It helps our mental health to take a breather every now and then. Watching a sunrise can be a form of meditation, where you forget about all that troubles you and focus on the here and now; the sunrise and the spot on the world you’re currently existing.
15. Accepting the Truth
Some of us have the extremely busy life – with family, work, responsibilities, and the likes. It’s good to accept the fact you’ll be having lots of stress, just focus on how you respond to it all.
21. For Those with the Perfect Job
Just remembering that your job will fire you if you’re not on time is great motivation for getting out of bed – but only if you enjoy your job. I’ve known people that’ve not cared about being fired because they were not seeking their true passion in their work…
25. A Mirror’s Smile
Have you ever woken up and the first thing you do is smile at yourself in the mirror? Try it out to see if it helps you lift your spirits and create a good vibe for the rest of your day.
29. You Can!
For all of your goals you plan to work towards and achieve, it’s a smart thing to remind yourself of them and to tell yourself that you can accomplish them. No motivation is better than self motivation.
30. Birth of New Days
This quote says it all. We can easily compare a day with a life. It reminds me of a famous William Blake quote: “To see your world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower. Hold infinity inn the palm of your hand, an eternity in an hour.” Lovely, and keeps you reminded that time is relative to your size. Be it physical or mental.
33. Virtual Cup of Java
For those of us with worlds filled with technology all around us, this little quote and picture is a perfect gesture you can give to those you can’t be with, but are equally surrounded by technology.
36. First Response to the Day
To set the mood of the day with a lovely walk is a great way to send out good vibes to the universe, cherishing the environment by experiencing its morning while giving your body a wake-up boost by sending it into a relaxing little exercise.
38. Unknowingly Awake
We all have responsibilities, some of us must wake up earlier than others to accomplish them. And yet sometimes we still feel that we should still be in bed at a certain hour in the morning… Why must we push ourselves to wake so early?
39. Letting Go of the Past
One of our good morning quotes here is truly inspiring. Who can claim they’ve never woken up one morning still thinking about yesterday’s events and sulking over them? We’ve all had this happen to us, some more than others. But in truth, it’s best to just leave yesterday in your memories and focus on improving the now; the present.
40. Don’t Miss Out
It’s too true that we’ve all missed some kind of opportunity in our lives simply because we failed to act on them. Grab life by the reigns and take control, take every opportunity the world throws at you that you can handle.
41. New Days = New Beginnings
It’s okay to get frustrated every now and then with life. It’s okay because the next day will offer you a new opportunity to start over, to start fresh, to pick yourself back up again.
44. New Days are New Opportunities
We all need strength to get through nearly any day. To have new thoughts takes a bit of conscious devotion – to ensure you aren’t thinking old thoughts that you thought of yesterday. We don’t need to relive moments – we need to create new ones.
45. The Privileges of Life
Thoughts are what create our moods. If we have good thoughts in the morning, we’re bound to have a good morning as well. To think of all the things that we’re grateful for in the morning will help remind us why we’re here and why we carry on to be the best we can be in all that we do.
46. Without the Ones you Cherish
Some of us value our friends so much that mornings are our favorite time of day to spend time with them. Ever go to breakfast with your best friend or meet them for coffee before work to chit-chat? Nothing like it in the world – to have another person up with you so early in the morning spending time with you before the day truly starts.
47. Happy Thoughts = Happy Life
Our bodies react to our thoughts. Just thinking of something scary can cause our bodies to produce adrenaline. Just laughing releases endorphins in our brains that make us happy. Whatever our thoughts are, our bodies follow suit.
50. Who is a Morning Person?
Anyone here want to shoot morning people? Yes, some of us get annoyed with the morning people that are way “too” happy and try to make everyone else happy in the mornings. Don’t be a grump! Just smile and nod…
54. Morning Smiles
If you’re married, then you know how much happiness the person you’re married to can truly give to you. Just to have someone on your side; someone to help take care of you, is worth so much in a lifetime. Marriage can be the source of happiness, that’s for sure.
55. Morning Prayer
Sometimes all you need to do to have a great day is talk to the divine for a few minutes before continuing on with your day.
