50 Morning Routine Innovations

From Coffee Subscription Services to AI Alarm Clocks

— June 9, 2016 — Lifestyle
These morning routine innovations range from office-wide coffee deliveries to AI alarm clocks that are designed to wake users up by reciting the daily news. When it comes to mornings, most urban professionals seek balance between priority and pleasure, even if their busy lifestyle prevents them from always achieving it.

When examining the ritual of waking up, niche alarm apps are gaining popularity among Millennial audiences and are helping even non-morning people stay motivated during early hours. Standouts include musical or motivational mobile platforms, like 'The Rock Clock,' designed by former wrestler and actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who is known for his rigorous workout routines and encouraging attitude. Furthermore, customizable calendar and email sorting apps are also making the lives of urban professionals and students easier while newsfeed-shortening extensions are ensuring one's social media channels highlight only data that is relevant to them.

Morning coffee and breakfast routines are also evolving, with customizable coffee kiosks and breakfast emoji keyboards being rolled out by major brands whose focus is to appeal to digital natives while enhancing the quality of their service.
