Do you feel like you don’t start the day off right? Maybe you just need a little help planning a good morning routine.
I’ll be the first to admit, mornings are tough for me. Working from home makes it a little harder to get a good start each day. I don’t have a job to get to at 9 a.m. I can literally roll out of bed and turn on my laptop. Well, not exactly. I have to roll out of bed, feed my daughter, keep her entertained, take her to Preschool, and then get to work. So where do I fit in time for me? Usually not until about 9 p.m., if I’m lucky.
I’ve learned when I do take time to plan out my mornings and get out of bed early enough, I am super productive through out the day. I, like everyone else, fall off of routines all the time. But you know what, that’s OK! Each day is a new day. Each day we have the chance to start over again.
I decided to get myself back on a track and start to work in some time for myself and my health each day. Here’s what I did to plan a good morning and evening routine.
DECIDE WHAT’S IMPORTANT
What is most important for you to add into your morning routine? What do you want to accomplish each morning? Maybe you want to get up early to exercise or meditate. Or, maybe you want to plan your day out and get in a shower alone. Make a short list of things you want to fit in each morning. And list them in order of importance. Then choose 2-3 things.
