Do you ever feel like your morning routine doesn’t live up to your expectations of what a good morning routine should look like? Or do you have your act together and have a routine that helps you start your day off feeling amazing?
Wake up sleepy head. The trouble with mornings is I am lazy. It is cold, and my bed is so cozy and warm. I am tired and don’t want to get up. The reality of my mornings. My morning routine has been of sipping coffee, half snoozing until it is time to jump out of bed at 7am and get the boys off to school. Then I come home do 20 minutes of meditation and 4o minutes of journaling, this I am proud of and it really supports starting my day in a positive way.
I love curling up in my arm chair, sipping on a cup of tea, and spilling words from my crazy busy mind onto the page of my journal each morning. It just gets my mind into the right space to start my day.
The trouble with mornings is that I am not a morning person. My ideal day would be to sleep in and start the day at lunch time. Which is why I have always loved working an afternoon shift, it just suits my body clock. I love this quote by writer Libba Bray “The trouble with mornings is that it comes well before noon.” I think this sums it up well.
The trouble with mornings is that I have morning routine envy. I read about successful people’s routines and some of them are up early, meditating, reading, and exercising. Then I beat myself up, why am I not doing that. I should be striving for some ideal morning routine. So I remind myself I have tried this all before and it never lasts. The routine I have keeps me happy, fits into my lifestyle, and works on a consistent basis without a lot of effort. In fact, I look forward to it. Being me is gently unfolding into my day, not bouncing out of bed, and jumping enthusiastically into it. We are all different some of us are morning people and some of us are evening people. I know I am an evening person.
My morning glory is a morning routine that works for me, allowing me to slowly unfold into my day. It is lazy, it’s imperfect, and it shows that I am not an early bird riser.
Please share your trouble with mornings or morning glory routine?
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
