A morning routine sets the tone for the whole day.
If you’re anything like me, often mornings feel like being sucker punched (in my case, by 3 tiny humans) and you spend all day trying to catch up. A change needed to take place. A new habit needed to be created. For the sake of my family, and my sanity.
1. Set a routine.
Wake up 1 hour earlier. I set my alarm for 5:20am. I then watch a sermon or listen to a podcast, followed by worship music. During this time is when I can actually think. I can think and pray for the day, I can have creativity for new ideas, and I can have silence to just “be.”
2. Make a list for the day.
Write down all the things you need or want to do for that day. Get it out of your mind and on to paper. Then write down 1-3 things that you are GRATEFUL for. Yes, write it down.
3. Drink something.
Starting your day off with a beverage, preferably non-alcoholic, will kick start your metabolism and get your body moving.
4. Get moving.
Do a 5-10 minute workout OR stretch. Whether it’s a 10 minute workout off of Pinterest or an app, just get moving for a few.
5. Balanced Breakfast
I don’t mean grabbing a KASHI bar as you run out the door. Having a breakfast with healthy fats, proteins, grains, fruits and/or vegetables will kickstart your body and help you function more efficiently.
Do this every day. Like most things, it’s difficult at first, but soon you will reap the rewards. You don’t have to do these exact things, you can mix it up or add something to it. But you get the idea. Get up, get focused, get moving, and get a peace of mind.
