Seizing Control Of Your Day Starts In The Morning
Jan 19, 2021
Do you carve out 15-30 minutes each morning for yourself?
Or do you wake up and frantically get ready for the day? The alarm goes off, you rush around, maybe eat breakfast, if there's time, check your messages and then start work...
I am very familiar with that feeling of overwhelm right at the beginning of the day. I started my days like that for years, until I learned the importance of a morning routine.
When you don't have control of your day from the minute you wake up this is what happens:
- You allow the day to control you
- You don't have clarity on what needs to get done
- You respond to everyone else's needs but your own
Having control of your day is important because you will have more clarity on the important things that need to get done, and avoid getting distracted from all the tasks that don't move the needle forward in your life.
One simple way to control your day is by starting it off with a simple morning routine.
My non-negotiables are:
- Plan and review my day in my planner
- Write down my daily affirmations
- Read a personal development book for 10-15 min
- Meditation for 5-10 minutes
This routine takes me about 30-45 minutes, but when I first created my routine a few years ago, I started with 15 minutes and worked my way up.
Now, I wake up and look forward to some quiet time to myself. Oh, and let me tell you, if I skip my morning routine I definitely notice it! My days are more chaotic, I'm less focused and not as productive. The Miracle Morning
by Hal Elrod is the book that helped me learn the importance of a morning routine, and is the reason why I got started with this habit. I would recommend reading it if controlling the chaos in your life is important to you.
I hosted a free 30-minute workshop in my "Control Your Chaos" Facebook Community, and you will have access to it, until the end of January. I had such great feedback from the attendees, and I wanted to make sure you had enough time to take advantage of the workshop replay.I have opened up a few more time slots at the end of the month for a free strategy call! They are already filling up quickly, so be sure to CLICK HERE to sign up and join my community. You can also watch the call replay on that link too.
