How to make geocaching part of your morning routine

As the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) situation is evolving rapidly, we encourage geocachers to follow the most current guidance from public health authorities when choosing how to participate in activities such as geocaching. Your health and safety are the top priority.

You may have heard it before, creating a morning routine can often lead to a more successful, productive, and meaningful day. It also sets the tone for the rest of your day which is why we think the perfect morning recipe is to wake up and just add geocaching. Here are four (slightly proven) ways to include geocaching into your morning routine.

Start with meditation. Meditation is proven to be a great way to start your day, but this time try to incorporate geocaching. Get in a comfortable space and start visualizing. Breathe in and think about how many geocaches you will find, breathe out and imagine the TOTTs you will need to bring. This technique can allow you to maximize your geocaching potential.

Check your instant notifications. Are there any new geocaches in your area? Make sure you have instant notifications* in place to alert you of any new activity. You never know when you will get an FTF!

Plan your day. Whether there are new geocaches in your area or an event nearby, knowing what’s to come can help for a more productive day! If you have geocaching goals this is also a good time to plan for a streak, Jasmer challenge, or your 365 grid.

Cache along a route. Do you have a morning fitness routine? Spice it up by adding geocaching. If you run, bike, or walk in the mornings, try and find routes that have caches nearby!
