Every morning I have a pretty usual routine (who doesn’t that first 1/2 hour? Most of us are stumbling through our kitchens pretty much on autopilot)…it always begins waking up to a yellow lab who is way too excited with anticipation for 2/3 cup of kibble, feed both 4-leggeds (the sidekick is an incredibly tolerant little sister kitty Lucy), get the coffee percolator gurgling and enjoy that time only morning offers before the day’s launch.
Because work is the most widely accepted AND expected #1 priority, what is so powerful about having a morning routine is that the other areas of your life are included in the day before you’re off to the races. I am a big believer in the importance of being mentally and physically strong…so it’s important that time for that is carved out. Morning seems to work best (and, that’s a pretty darn good opening act to your day).
