I’m interested to hear from any of you who have successfully implemented a morning routine.
I read ‘The Miracle Morning‘ book a while back but haven’t got round to actually implementing yet. I think it would help me in the morning and get the day off on the right track. I do struggle in the mornings though, mainly due to the drowsiness of my medication. I take Olanzapine at night and it helps me sleep really well but I do find that in the morning I still feel a bit groggy. Also, as I’m not working at the moment I do find that I have zero motivation to get up early in the morning. When I was working I needed to be up at 6am everyday and it did help me with my routine.
This is how I’d like my routine to look:
- Wake up, drink a glass of water
- Meditate – use headspace app
- Drink a cup of herbal tea
- Work on my plan for life – goals, targets etc
- Do some yoga/go for a walk
- Read something inspiring
That seems like a lot but it is 7 small steps to getting the mornings how I’d like them. I also want to get into the habit of waking up at the same time each day so I’m going to try adjusting the time I take my meds and setting my alarm clock. It’s all good practise for when I go back to work.
