You know that morning routine I preached about in this post? The one I absolutely loved that makes me feel so productive and energetic and ready for the day?
I don’t do it any more.
I don’t do it any more because I fell out of the habit. I loved that routine and I did it religiously for at least 3 months solid. And it was easy to keep doing – I had gotten into the habit:
Wake up. Wash my face. Fill up my water bottle. Do a little exercise (usually Blogilates-related, so good!). Write in The 5 Minute Journal. Read 10 pages of a book. Meditate for 15 minutes. Finish off my water. Get dressed for the day. Have breakfast.
It was definitely an overly elaborate routine, but it worked for me. I was in a groove and I was killing it. I loved this morning routine, and yet I stopped doing it.
I’ve found myself snoozing my alarm. I haven’t ‘had time‘ to do everything I want to in the morning. I am rushed. I feel unproductive. And worse still, I feel like I don’t know how to get out of the slump and back into my old routine.
Why am I telling you this?
Why would I admit that my ‘foolproof’ morning routine has come completely undone?
