There was some chat recently at the School of Life Design about morning routines. Taking a look at my own morning and evening routines I saw I was in dire need of a change up!
A typical "work day" for me looks a little something like this: set my alarm for 7am, hit snooze til 7:30, rush to get ready and run out the door at 8 for work. I'd leave for home at 5 and do a lot of sitting around until I finally decide to get my pjs on (usually around 1am) and watch tv til 2-2:30am.
This was not working for me! But somehow I convinced myself that it was. I'd feel sluggish all day and not want to do anything when I got home. I was in the slump of all slumps.
I have decided that I needed to tweak my daily routines to maximize my awesomeness!
I started my new routine this morning!
