Do you have one?
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Studies show that a structured morning routine leads to a more pro active day.
In my 20’s I was a night owl, I used to stay up until 2am most night binge watching box sets (age lol) and then rolling into work after a few hours’ sleep. Had a kid, 9 years later I am fully a morning person and in bed at 9.30pm every night. I love love love the mornings.
Why? Its alone my time. I am also super productive.
I want you to consider getting a routine in the mornings if you don’t already. I’m not saying do 3 hours of mediation, 1 hour of yoga and then read a self help book before work. Those people are crazy! What I am saying is set your alarm 30 minutes earlier and do something you love before anyone else wakes up.
That could be to get up, make a coffee and so a 20 minute walk with it. Or make a drink and get back in bed and read your book. Just something so you are not jumping out of bed and rushing around like a crazy person and setting your day of with high stress!
I get up at 5.30am every morning (even at weekends), I go straight to my balcony and do 20 minutes of gentle yoga and the end I sit there and take 20 deep breaths in and out, not really thinking about anything in particular but just loving the quiet. Then I make a coffee and I am ready to sit at my computer and start my day. I do an hour then my daughter gets up and we start her day.
Starting the day so chilled makes such a difference to my mood and how I feel. I do that same at weekends to but with the coffee I will watch the tv.
I would love to hear of your morning routines??
