My Favorite Time of the Day

My Favorite Time of the Day

My favorite time of the day is the first thing in the morning, well before anyone is up!

I started getting up early around 8 years ago, when I had to get a newborn out the door while trying to get my other kids to elementary and pre-school. Any other option would have been impossible!

I love the peace and quiet the early morning gives me. I am able to plan out my day, and as I call it, win my day.

My wake-up time is around 4:00 a.m. I set my alarm for then, voluntarily! then I start off the morning with meditating and positive affirmations. Next, I journal. Sometimes it is about what is going on in my life or what I might be struggling with; however, I always end with my wins from the previous day. After, I write in my gratitude and prayer journal.

My favorite part of the morning is spending time with God. I read my bible and my morning devotionals all while drinking my coffee.

I am a huge advocate of personal development, so next, I read my books that foster growth in my personality. I also listen to a podcast while I drink my Energize, so I can do my morning workout.

I enjoy doing my workout while the kids are sleeping. It makes it easier to concentrate on my form and technique. Plus, I am not tripping all over them.

If there is still time after my workout, I squeeze in working on some of my blog posts. Because I love my kid, but I’m more productive when they are sleeping.

Then, before the kids are up I get ready. This helps because I am much calmer and prepared for the day. I greet them with a smile getting them ready for school is less stressful. I have found we are not rushing around and we arrive at school on time!

Doing this has made my days much smoother. And by the time I walk into my office, I am ready to work.

I have tweaked my morning routine over the years; however, I modeled a lot of it from the book called Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.

If you are looking to start a morning routine, I would suggest doing the following:

  1. Go to bed thirty minutes earlier so you can wake up thirty minutes earlier.
  2. Write down how you envision what you want to accomplish during your morning routine
  3. Tweak overtime if you are not accomplishing what you want to accomplish
  4. Put your alarm clock across the room so it forces you to get out of bed!
  5. And reading Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.

Also, reach out to me to chat. During our call, we can tailor-make your morning routine to meet your needs or work on another part of your daily life.
