Morning Routine

Fear pursuit

I know I’m going to sound like a lunatic, but I woke up at 445 am, and I was thrilled. Before you’re like, “she’s an insane person, and I hope she seeks psychiatric help” there’s a reason for my madness.

Earlier this year, I realized I had NO time to write when I would get home. I would be so completely drained and mentally exhausted that I found myself not being able to do it. So, I started to wake up early and not only write, but to also meditate and journal, and it’s really transformed my mindset to something more positive.

With how demanding jobs can be, it’s hard to get time for yourself, but now, I do. It’s totally changed everything. My friend, Melissa, put it best, “When I take the time to do this, I feel like Teflon.” I’m able to do the things that I really care about and am excited about early, and for the rest of the day (while it might not be every day) I feel like there is a light on inside of me.

I’m curious, what is your morning or nighttime routine like? Are you hoping to create one?

  1. I spent years getting up with just enough time to get washed and dressed and get to work. I didn’t even eat breakfast or I’d eat something quick like biscuits at my desk. I decided a while back to start getting up earlier, make some tea and toast, watch some TV or just relax and get myself mentally prepared for my day. It’s made such a difference to my happiness and wellbeing, I wish I’d done it years ago. I write in the evenings and at weekends, I don’t think I could get up early and write bcos my mind takes so long to get into the right frame, but taking some peaceful time to myself in a morning is so worthwhile 😊
