With the change of season, the hours of sunlight diminish quickly. You may want to sleep more. You may feel less inclined to go out after work. Your energy seems less. You feel like you have less energy. And, all you want to do is curl up on the couch with a warm cup of brew and your favorite movie.

But, is it really? Or, is this only your perception?

Has your routine changed? Or, has your routine fallen off?

Here’s the thing. It’s likely the latter, right? If your morning routine gives you energy. It doesn’t matter what time the sun comes up. Your morning routine is the same.

Do you have a morning routine that energizes you? Does your morning routine get you excited for your day?

Every morning, I have a specific set of activities that get me still and move me. This creates a chain reaction that gets me motivated everyday to tackle any challenges that are thrown my way.

Carefully examine your morning:

-What’s the first thing you do when your brain wakes up? i.e., this is before you even get out of bed. Do you dread your day? Do you wonder why you’re still tired? Do you hit the alarm?

-What’s the first thing you do when your eyes open? Look at the clock? Think about your long to-do list? Think about how busy your day is going to be? Do you freak out that you slept late and don’t have time to make lunch for the kids? Do you check the latest social media feed?

What would happen if you spent the first 30 minutes of your day on you? Getting yourself focused. Getting yourself energized.  Figure out what the strategy for your day is.

This will dramatically change your life. 


Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
