What is your morning routine?
New year, new ritual, amiright? I usually gauge what time I go to bed by what time I need to be up. I value sleep, but I also value getting my work done. As a new entrepreneur, I am fine-tuning that balance every day.
I typically start my morning anywhere between 8:00-9:00am with a meditation. I prefer guided meditations through Insight Timer, but even sitting in silence focusing on your breathing is a great way to clear your mind and set the path you want to take for the day. After meditating, I come upstairs to make my favorite morning coffee using a collagen-and-superfood creamer. Then I take my pup to the park to run it out. I end my morning ritual by journaling and jotting down five things I am grateful for. I think it is incredibly important to have goals and visions of the future we want to build, but we must also give thanks for the amazing things we have built thus far.
My morning routine lasts about forty-five minutes total. I usually aim to finish around 9:30-10:00am, so I can hit the ground running and start the day productively.
How long have you stuck with this routine so far?
I am always fine-tuning my rituals to accommodate the needs of where I am in my life. I have been going through an incredible amount of changes and adjustments in my life recently, and I found that I needed to calm my mind and refocus on the beauty that surrounds me as opposed to the long list of things that need to get done.
My ritual, like myself, is constantly evolving, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
