My Morning and 3 Tips to Sticking to Your Morning Routine

Sunday, July 19, 2020

I wanted to show a bit more of me in the blog. Coaches can come off as having it all together (that would be nice), but I am human and have ups and downs like everyone. This year has been a test to sticking to morning routines. When everything got shut down, I am not going to lie; it killed all of my routines. However, with my anxiety, I need a routine.  It took me about a few weeks to get myself together again. Going through this was annoying and nervewracking, but I learned three things that I want to share to hopefully help you stick to your routine. 
I learned three things that I want to share to hopefully help you stick to your routine.
Before I get into the tip, I want to give a few clarifications on my morning routine. 

1) this is my summer morning routine changes a few times a year because I am a teacher. So my morning routine is set to change again in August. 

2) Meditation, on some days, means listening to ambient music and relaxing. 

3) I use Fabulous to keep track of my routines. 


1) Don't copy or create a plan based on someone else intentions. It is not easy to keep to a routine if it does not serve you. Picking your intention to your morning has proven to be one of the single best indicators of sticking a routine through. (I talked about this in last week's post and a few other tips to creating a successful routine.) Often, when people suggest morning routines, it is based on what worked for them. Not everyone wants nor needs to be up at 5 am. Your intentions for your morning may vary significantly. 

2)Don't compare your routine. Comparing is a human problem of needing to compare, wanting to know we are doing it right. However, there is no right and wrong, and the analyzing takes your morning routine from being something you want to do to something you have to do. Your morning routine should not feel like a chore, and if it does, you need a new one. 

3) Be kind to yourself.  You will have an off day or days. I have gone weeks bearly keeping my routine together, it happens. Don't judge yourself for having a hard time. Something I have noticed about myself is when my routine gets hard to stick though it means I need help outside of myself. I either talk with my doctor or a counselor when that happens. This is not the case for everyone, but it is for me. if you are having a hard time sticking to your routine, don't blame yourself. Maybe more is going on with you than you think. 

You have the control, power, and strength to heal from within.
