I am personally trying to ease into a morning routine, mindfully. I fell off track. Life it happens and it threw me for a loop.
I have always heard the first waking hour sets the tone for your day. Makes sense, because when my morning is chaotic it definitely throws off my day
But, every sunrise is an opportunity to start fresh. My focus or goal is to be more focused and to make better use of my time.
The following are a few things I am working on.
- Forgetting my phone, meaning, not starting my day by checking emails, social media etc. I am giving myself 30-60 mins of phone free time upon waking.
- Hydrating with water maybe with some lemon juice. Honestly this I do all the time.
- Adding some gentle movement to my mornings, whatever my body craves.
- Having a morning ritual like reading, listening to some calming tunes sketching etc anything that will allow me to ease into my day.
” Nothing can be done except little by little.” _ Charles Baudelaire
In all things I will give myself some grace because I am not perfect, but I am sure worth it.
Do you have a morning ritual or something you are working on implementing to start your day? Let me know in the comments.
