It is said in the Bhagavatha that a person who remembers the story of gajEndra mOksha as soon as one wakes up in the morning, is blessed with hari smaraNe during maraNa kAla.
There is a sankshipta gajEndra mOksha which is very easy for parayane.
Here are the 2 verses:

The king of elephants was held at his feet by a crocodile which was of superior strength in the lake. Taking a lotus, the elephant called out to the Lord as Adi puruSha, lOka nAtha, tIrthashravaH and shravaNa maMgala nAmadhEya.
Having heard his plea, the Lord who is apramEya, with the chakra came on the shoulders of garuDa and killed the crocodile with His chakra and freed the elephant by His hands.

In this water(used for bath), I invoke the presence of holy waters from the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Saraswati, Narmada, Sindhu and Kaveri.

An idea is to write or print this sloka and stick near Gas stove. This wont take even 5 minutes to read every day. By lyrics we can understand The cooked items are given as neivedhyam to Lord sri Lakshmi Narayana. In today’s worlds nothing is pure. vegetables, fruits and all groceries are adulterated, with lot of chemicals. By chanting such slokas, I believe God will protect our body from any sort of diseases or infections that is being caused by poor quality of ingredients we are using.
In additon we can understand the Tharathamya (most important of Madhwa philosophy) Sri hari followed by Mahalakshmi(hrudayadhali nelasevarige) vaayu, Brahma, followed by saraswathy, bharathy(vaayu’s wife) followed by Garuda, sesha, rudra(siva).This hierarchy is the most important of Madhwa philosophy. One should always worship God in this hierarchy only. Hari is always supreme(Hari Sarvothama)
Wake up everyday with a positive thought. Morning gives positive energy. It is the best time of the day to start your prayer.
This shloka is to be recited in the morning. when you get up, just sit in the bed and Relax. Chant this shloka with eyes still closed, and open them by the fourth part (ma~NgalaM karadarshanam) and see your hands and smile.
This exercise is so good, that it helps you stabilize your blood pressure. After lying down for 6-7 hours and if you suddenly get up for alarm or some sound, there can be a pressure drop in the brain and this is known to be the most important factor in early morning strokes. Both shlokas when recited slowly will take about 1-2 minutes which is sufficient for your brain to get used to new blood pressure.
ಕರಾಗ್ರೇ ವಸತೇ ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮೀ ಕರಮಧ್ಯೆ ಸರಸ್ವತಿ
ಕರಮೂಲೇ ತು ಗೋವಿಂದಃ ಪ್ರಭಾತೇ ಕರದರ್ಶನಂ
Karaagre Vasate Lakshmi Karamadhye Sarasvati,
Karamuule Tu Govinda Prabhaate Kara dharshanam
Meaning: The front part of the hands (the finger tips) is credited to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth. The middle part or palm is credited to Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning and the root (the part of hand near the wrist) to Govinda. So, every morning, one should have a look at one’s hand which represents sincere labor.
ಸಮುದ್ರ ವಸನೆ ದೇವಿ ಪರ್ವತ ಸ್ತನಮನ್ದಲೆ

Samudravasane Devi Parvatastanamandale,
Vishhnupatni Namastubhyam Paadasparsham Kshamasva Me
Meaning: I bow to Mother Earth, who has mountains and jungles on her body and whose clothing is made by the ocean. The wife of Lord Vishnu, please pardon me for touching you with my feet.
