Why I Believe in a Simplified, Diverse Morning Routine
A morning routine provides consistency for our bodies and allows us to remain centered throughout the day. Our bodies’ needs are constantly changing. By focusing on three simple components of well-being (mind, body, and soul), one set themselves up for success. When we set the day up for success, we find greater ability to stay motivated when setting goals and can find calmness amid a storm. Grounding oneself creates a calm nervous system despite uncontrollable situations. When we feel relaxed, we can achieve more without being sidetracked.
Seasonal Morning Routine:
Along with Summer usually comes a sense of movement and a desire to achieve more. Therefore, I complete quick tasks that don’t require complete stillness but still allow me to remain centered. When Winter comes along, I incorporate more meditation.
Non-negotiables for a Optimal Morning Routine
