I’m seriously in LOVE with my morning routine and since I’ve had a lot of questions about it after sharing this post, I thought I’d go into a little more detail.
While I love doing this routine every morning, this post isn’t about trying to get you to do it too (unless, like me, you’re a fan of unnecessarily elaborate plans). This post is just my way to share how I figured out what works best for me so that it might help you figure out the same.
I do this routine almost every morning, even if I need to be somewhere early. But I’m a morning person. The point of this whole thing is figuring out what will work for you, so I’ll just say now that if you’re not a morning person try to set yourself up with a morning routine that will give you the best chance of succeeding. Make sure you only choose a few things and be proud of yourself when you do them. This is about you, not about comparing yourself to anyone else.
Focus on your strengths instead of trying to improve your weaknesses.
