Re-thinking your mornings

I am anything but a morning person. I am a "don't talk to me before I've had my coffee" type of morning person. For all of you out there reading this - I get it!

How you start your day, or more specifically how you spend those first few morning hours sets the tone for the rest of your day. That’s why making over your morning is so important.

I’m sure you’ve experienced this yourself. Let’s use the snooze button as an example. You set an early alarm to make sure you have time for exercise, meditation, or simply some much needed “me time”. You have every intention of getting up and doing whatever you’re setting out to do when you set the alarm in the first place. You get up when the alarm chimes and go for that walk, do your meditation exercise, or read a book for twenty minutes. Other days you just can’t make yourself get up. You hit the snooze button multiple times, or turn the alarm off altogether and go back to sleep.

Think about how the rest of those days went: Did you notice a difference in how you felt? How much did you got done on the mornings when you got up with your first alarm? Were you able to do all the things you set out to do?

If I had to take a guess, I’d say that the mornings when you got up as soon as the alarm went off went a lot smoother and you were able to accomplish more. The other days...well....not so much.

Today, I want you to start preparing for the upcoming challenges. Use today to reflect back on your mornings and what does & does not work for you and your family.

Making the most out of your mornings

Ugh...Morning are very rough, right?

I get up before everyone else to get the day started. Grab a cup of coffee then it's off to the races.

Even after you rush around all day, you still don't get ahead.

What if I told you there was a better way?

Over the next 7 days, I will be posting about transforming your mornings to ensure you have a better day.

Stay tuned, this is something you don't want to miss!

To take this journey you will want a note pad or a journal. I have the Twilight Garden Journal that I purchased from Amazon.  I highly suggest you grab one. Twilight Garden Journal (Diary, Notebook) (Small Format Journal)(aff link).

Why I use DealSpotr

I stumbled upon DealSpotr by accident. I was doing my usual search on Google for a coupon code for an item I was going to purchase. I checked various sites, all of which were riddled by dead coupons.  I was very frustrated. Then I found DealSpotr!
