I started a new morning routine three weeks ago, and it has made a huge impact on how my day goes! I am more energetic, productive, and patient. The house is cleaner, the sink is almost always empty, and I’ve been doing small artsy projects with Drake most days. My new routine tapped into a line of energy I never knew existed. I never thought how I started my morning would make such a difference to the rest of my day.
First of all, I prepare the night before. By preparing ahead, I can run on autopilot in the morning, and I am less likely to wake up the sleeping children because I am quieter.
Before I put the kids to bed, I set out the breakfast dishes, put my clothes and towels in the bathroom, and put my planner on the table. Easy enough, and it doesn't seem like much, but it makes the morning go that much more smoothly.
My Magical Morning Routine
That is how my morning goes on the good mornings. Most mornings my new routine is manageable. It’s not like I put exercise in there anywhere. The only glitch happens when the kids wake up super early. Sometimes Drake will wake up before my alarm goes off! Imagine my despair! I can usually still get all the same stuff done, but it isn’t as energizing for me as when I get to spend my morning alone and in silence.
I never thought changing my morning routine would help invigorate my day, but it has and I am happy for it!
