EP:12 DO YOU HATE YOUR MORNING ROUTINE?

(This video is recorded from a Facebook LIVE session)

 
The ability to start out upon your own impulse is fundamental to the gift of keeping going upon your own terms. . . . Getting started, keeping going, getting started again— in art and in life, it seems to me this is the essential rhythm.
— Seamus Heaney, poet

 

Anytime we choose to alter our habits, change something, or seek to improve our lives it has to be fueled by our heart and intuition. In order for a morning routine to really impact you on a cellular level, you have to be connected to why it matters to YOU, otherwise it’s useless and becomes another to-do.

 

So what is the point of a morning routine anyway?

If it stresses you out it is counter productive. It’s a sacred space, so make it what you want.

 

So I have 3 questions that you can ask yourself when you are contemplating what your morning routine might look like.

QUESTION #1: Is your morning routine giving you what you want?

QUESTION #2: HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL going into your day?

QUESTION #3: What do you need to give yourself permission to do?

 

My Non-Negotiable Criteria for a Morning Routine that Rocks:

#1: It has to be guided by Intuition

#2: It has to light you up.

#3: It has to include gratitude

 

I encourage you to create a morning routine that leaves you feeling empowered. Let it leave you feeling more peace. Everything is happening FOR you-so allow your routine to reflect this.
