Good morning sayings for lovers

Many couples wish each other a good morning and a good night every day. If they’ve been apart or are not yet living together, the following sayings are a great way for them to still show appreciation for each other.

Even for married couples who have been together for a long time, such small attentions sometimes work wonders.

If both are working, there is unfortunately not much time after getting up to wish each other a good start of the day. This can be made up for quite quickly with messages sent to their cell phones.

Sunday morning quotes

Sunday morning quotes

Good morning quotes are suitable in principle for any day of the week. But most greetings and wishes for the day are sent on Sundays.

    With family and sunshine along the way.
    A time for us to laugh and be carefree,
    That’s the Sunday spirit, we all agree.
  5. Kick back and relax, the work week coming next,
    But today is Sunday, the day when no one’s vexed.

  8. It’s time to recharge and relax, Enjoy this Sunday to the max!
    Like a holiday that keeps coming around, Sunday is the day when all good things abound!

Tips for your good morning quotes

Tips for your good morning quotes

Below we have some tips for you that can help you write and send good morning sayings. Among other things, we’ll tell you on which occasions you can send them.

You’ll also find out what alternatives there are to the usual good morning messages and for whom they are not so suitable. Afterwards, you will find numerous examples that you can either send directly or use for inspiration if you want to write a saying yourself.

Use occasions to send messages after waking up

Theoretically, any day is suitable to send a good morning saying. However, there are some days when it is especially nice to receive such a greeting. For example:

  • Valentine’s Day
  • Mother’s Day
  • Birthday
  • Christmas
  • New Year
  • Father’s Day

Another occasion for loving sayings in the morning is when a person is not doing very well and you want to motivate or build her up. You can prove to her that you are there for her and give her hope.

This means situations where something difficult is coming up for her (like an exam or waiting for an acceptance or rejection letter). Also, if someone is sick, sending get well wishes directly to their phone in the morning is a nice gesture.

Bring variation to the game

Bring variation to the good morning sayings

Good morning sayings are usually sent via messengers like WhatsApp, social media or SMS. Most people look at their cell phones after getting up and read their messages.

A saying, a quote or a short poem is in itself something special compared to ordinary messages. But if you want to stand out even more from the crowd and like variety, we have a few alternatives for you:

For example, you could take a sleepy photo of yourself right after waking up in the morning and send it with a saying. With tousled hair, small eyes, in pajamas and without any filters, it will surely make your conversation partner laugh.

Self-irony is not only sympathetic, it makes your recipient feel good and shows him that you, too, are unrecognizable in the morning. The same goes for videos. If you’re courageous, just say your good morning line in a video instead of writing it to go with it. Improvised sayings are sometimes even funnier.

An alternative to the written word, picture or video is a voicemail. On WhatsApp, voicemails are super quick and easy to send. Especially if you never do something like that, your counterpart will definitely be pleased. Recite a good morning saying or croak out a few spontaneous sentences in a sleepy voice.


If you just want to visually embellish your saying, choose any motif that goes with a good morning (for example: breakfast table, sun, sky, clouds, bed, pillow, teddy bear, coffee) and write your saying on it. This can be done with simple image editing programs and is immediately much more vivid.

Write the text of your message yourself

Write the text of your message yourself

Writing good morning sayings yourself is definitely the most personal way to give a loved one a morning treat.

Here, it’s important to think about what the person might like. Put yourself in their shoes and use everything you know about them. With our little guide, you can succeed in writing your own sayings.

Start brainstorming

The most important thing when brainstorming is to avoid time pressure and be in an undisturbed place. This way you can think in peace and no one will barge in to take a look at your unpolished notes.

Keep in mind from the start that you can always send the message another day and not be pressed for time. This will provide relaxation and you’ll be able to focus better.

And so we come to the first step. Take a sheet of paper and a pen and randomly write down the thoughts that come to mind about the person and the topic of mornings. What do you associate with a good morning and what do you wish the person to help them get through their day well?

Does she have a special favorite animal or breakfast? Certain rituals? Think about whether you have a shared memory that could spread good cheer. The second step we recommend is clustering. Put your individual pieces into a context of meaning.

Use rhymes

Rhymes help you put your notes from brainstorming into a meaningful order. Think about individual words that rhyme and build a little "story" around them.

For example, take the words "sight" and "bright" and "pleasures" and "treasures". This could be used to create the saying:

"I wish for you a morning that’s bright,
Free from worries, with clear vision and sight.
So you can go for life’s joys and pleasures,
And not miss out on any of its treasures."

If you want to send funny good morning sayings, you can also choose particularly simple or exaggerated rhymes and give them an ironic touch.

For whom early messages are not so well received

Morning grouches have always existed, will always exist. Some people just don’t wake up as quickly at the beginning of the day as others. Some are not responsive at all before their first coffee. They’ll probably just skim your message at first and maybe enjoy it later.

But someone who’s not a morning person at all might be annoyed by a message bursting with energy and cheerfulness. Knowing your family and friends well, you’ll know the best way to approach them before lunch.
