I have a confession, I'm a morning person. One of those cant sleep in, pop out of bed and ready to go annoying people.
Until the time change...
With an uptick in work (so thankful for amazing word of mouth referrals) & recently launched Groupon offer I've been struggling with a productive morning routine.
Managing multiple social media accounts, my day starts with an iPad, scanning 100's if not 1,000's of messages, posts and trends. Following the advice of my talented Chiropractor at Thrive Studio, I begin the day stretched on a foam roller to alleviate the tension in my mind back (separate post on back health for entreprenuers).
10 minutes of stretching, followed by listening to to morning news programs, reading emails (ranging between 200-600 somehow appear overnight) and creating my morning to-do list in Evernote.
I frequently remind myself, "Success starts before the sun rise." Keeping with that, before bed I always go through a mental list of things to be thankful for, repeat a personal manifestation (Separate post to come) and shut off ALL smart devices, phones, iPad, laptop, TV- anything that can distract my mind. This aides in a deeper sleep and waking more rested and relaxed for a new day!
- Warm water with lemon juice
- 10 minutes stretching
- Daily to-do list
- Your favorite playlist (Cafe del Maré)
So, I've shown you mine... Now show me yours!
What is YOUR morning routine?
