5 Minute Morning Routine To Set YOUR Day Up for Success
Do Something Mundane
As soon as you get out of bed do something mundane, brush your teeth or make coffee. Seriously, do something that you don’t need to think too hard about but that gets your body moving for a few minutes
Take deep breaths
Now that you have had some movement. Stop, sit and take 10 deep breaths. Inhale and feel your breath enter through your nose, travel down your throat, expand your lungs and your belly. Exhale and let your shoulders drop and your face relax. Do this 8-10 times.
Next, close your eyes and for about 10 breathes picture something you are grateful for, your partner, your baby, your team, your mom. Whatever it is big or small take a few more deep breaths while you focus on it. Let the powerful feelings of that gratitude consume you.
Visualize The Life You Want
Keeping your eyes closed, take another 10 breaths and visualize the life you want to live in the future. Picture yourself, your family, your career, in an ideal state. Stay here imagining what it feels like to be living exactly how you want, for as long as like.
Write Down Your Top 3 To Dos
Finally, picture your day, think about how you want to feel when you get home tonight and write down the top 3 things you need to do to feel that way. The printable Working Mom’s Guide to a 5 Minute Morning Routine has a worksheet with a section you can use to record these to-dos.
