The first thing you do, as soon as you wake up, let it be the sign of the cross, and the first words are the words of the Jesus prayer.

Rev. Varsonofy of Optina

There is great peace in consecrating the day to God. Consecrating ourselves to God. The morning is a beautiful gift given to us. A gift that, with absolute certainty, will come to an end. Given that this is the only day we have been given, should we not live it completely in Him?
