- Don’t hit snooze!
Snoozing your alarm can make you feel sluggish in the morning and waste your ‘me’ time. Set the alarm at a reasonable hour, enough to get your morning routine done and make it a habit to get out of bed as soon as it goes off.
- Make your bed
That way you know you will have a clean space and a made bed to get into when you get home. Creating a refreshing space for you to relax in at the end of your busy day can have many benefits to your mentality.
- Eat a balanced breakfast
Ensuring you are eating healthy and nutrient rich foods will give you a positive start and have more energy for the day ahead. You can even make breakfast in advance and have it ready to go in the morning with minimal preparation!
- Write down your schedule for the day
Look at what needs to be completed within the day and what you want to achieve. Make time for everything, even something as small as making a cup of tea. This way you will be able to tick off the boxes and feel like you were super productive and gave yourself some well-deserved ‘me’ time even if your day was full of work.
- Write and review your goals
Have a vision board and write your goals and dreams down, feel free to add long term as well as short term goals, maybe your short term goal is to workout 3 times this week or meditate every morning for 7 days.
- Remove the decision making from your routine
Lastly make this a habit and remove the thinking from your routine. Decide what order and give each task an assigned time so you don’t get distracted.
If you start by making these small changes you will eventually find what works for you. Don’t expect it to happen overnight and don’t beat yourself up over making a mistake, you can only learn and improve from it.
