Tip #7 – Start each morning with the best YOU.
What does it take to start your morning off just right? A good night’s sleep? Exercise? Quiet time? A good breakfast? We all have an “ideal” morning – make a list of what yours looks like. As you consider what a good morning is to you, how can you change your daily morning routine to look more like the mornings you desire? I know, some of you may say they just aren’t feasible. Maybe to some extent they aren’t. But what is something tangible that you can do today, to start your morning off right? Often the start of the day is a precursor to how our day will go – start it off RIGHT!
Kristin’s Action Plan: I am a morning person. I enjoy getting up, unrushed, to start my day. Though, there are days when I feel I am rushed – that means getting up 15 minutes earlier the next. I put this into action at the beginning of the school year as I started a new job. I would get up at one time, but realize I was too rushed for my liking. That meant getting up 15 minutes earlier and I have to say, it has made a WORLD of difference. Yes, I lose a little extra sleep, but that means I just go to bed 15 minutes earlier. Getting up on time to hear the morning, do my devotions, eat breakfast, check my email, etc., is well worth it! It takes a little bit of work and maybe even a little sacrifice. Make YOUR morning what you want it to be.
