My Morning timeline:
Wake up between 7-9
I am a firm believer in starting your day right, but I am NOT a firm believer in waking up at 5 AM when you don't have to in order to create time for yourself. If you don't have to be at work until 9 AM and you normally wake up at 8.. waking up at 7 will give you that extra time you need. Me, I work for myself from home at any hour I please but I try to wake up between 7 and 9 in order to not waste the morning away.
I love Yoga.. it is my happy place
Manifestation, prayer, and devotion
This time is truly my fave time in the morning because I check in with myself, God, and my intention for my life and business.
Look at my to-do list
I prefer to glance at my to-do list to mentally ready myself for what I need to do. It also helps me come up with a game plan in my mind about what to do first
Set intention for the day
This is a reiteration of the intentions and affirmations I set during my manifestation routine. I try to always set intentions for myself so that I am moving with a sense of purpose
I learned recently that for a bear chronotype sleeper (you can take your sleeper type quiz here), it is best to wait two hours after waking up to drink your coffee. I've seen this make an actual difference in my productivity and my coffee jolts me more now than it ever did before.
... this one is kind of a sometimes too. I want to read every day but there are lots of days I end up skipping. I am currently reading Gabrielle Union's book "You Go Anything Stronger?" . Think I should do a book review? Let me know and I'll do one on my YouTube Channel.
Start the day
Now that I've done all of these things, I can get started with my day feeling READY.
