Having a morning and evening routine can set you free from all the chaos!
For you, it could mean the difference between stopping at a fast-food joint on the way to work … and having a freshly blended smoothie because all the ingredients were ready-to-go.
It could mean the difference between dragging your body “through the motions” … and feeling ENERGIZED to take on your day because you did a few minutes of stretching and movement before your shower.
It could mean the difference between waking up in “reaction” mode … and leading the day with intention and purpose.
And it could also mean the difference between falling short on your health and fitness goals … and CRUSHING them.
It took me a while to figure this all out. I used to think routines were restrictive and stressful ... but now I know they are just the opposite.
Routines that set you free:
1) are simple and
2) are tailored to fit YOUR life and goals.
This leads me to a great mini-assignment for you!
→ What are 1 to 3 small things you can do tonight – that take 5 minutes, TOPS – to make tomorrow morning easier (and a little healthier)?
IDEAS: Get your clothes ready, put your workout bag by the door, prep your breakfast and lunch – or maybe help your children (if you have any in the house) do that?
Now … tonight, make it happen!
To really ramp this up and make it a habit, do these things right after you eat dinner. That way they’re done and out of the way, and you can enjoy the rest of the evening.
