How My Morning Routine is Saving Me Right Now
Once the dust settles with all the craziness we are seeing right now, it’s go time!. If there’s one thing that I think prepared me for all this while the rest of the world is freaking out, it’s my morning routine.
As leaders, we are called to maintain a level head or to be the calm in the storm. One of the best ways to ensure that you actually remain calm in times like this is to master your mornings.
My morning routine takes about 60 minutes … here it is.
Drink 16oz of water. This is the first thing that you should do every morning - all through the night your body is dehydrating, so it’s important to drink plenty of water when you wake up. Have it ready the night before, so that it’ll be easy to get used to in the morning.
Strides - highly recommended. It’s an app I use to track my morning routine. Typically, I’m the first person in my house that’s awake, so I have an hour of quiet to myself to crush my morning routine. Strides is a great app for tracking it all.
Headspace - This is a mindfulness meditation app. The series I am doing right now is on mindfulness around eating. I tend to eat when I’m stressed, tired, bored, all the time - so this is helping quite a bit.
Abide - This is a christian meditation app that I use every morning as well, although even if you aren’t a christian, I’d still encourage you to do some kind of meditation or reading every morning.
Read something. I choose to read the Bible, but if you don’t, read a chapter of a book. It’s easy, and it gets your mind started up before work every day.
Journal. I use the Five Minute Journal every day - it’s an app I use, but they also have a paper version. You could also just write it down in any journal - I like to answer some questions around gratitude every day. In the morning, I write down 3 things I am looking forward to that day, and then at the end of the day, I write 3 awesome things that happened that day.
Green Smoothie. After all of that, it’s time to fill your body with a power-packed green drink. I use Vega protein powder with some almond milk and strawberries. It gets my body to wake up with some healthy fuel.
During these fascinating times, it’s more important than ever to make sure we are showing up in our businesses like we perhaps have never had to before. Take control of your mornings so that you can continue showing up for your team and family as strong as ever!
