Creating a Solid Morning Routine
I love the quote above from Anne Lamott, a brilliant American novelist...
"The hour before the world gets to you is precious and sacred time."
Let that seep in for just a moment.
What does your typical morning time consists of?
Is it yours?
Is it calm?
Is it nurturing?
Does it help set you up for success?
We have two Tuesdays left in January and since this is the month of building new habits, I thought we could take these two opportunities in The F.I.E.R.C.E. Life to build effective morning and nighttime routines.
And today, we begin with mornings.
By simply putting a few steps into place, we can reclaim our mornings so they do indeed feel "precious and sacred".
The purpose of a morning routine to is to ground the mind, body and soul to generate clarity on where we choose to put our energy.
This clarity moves us away from react mode (other's agendas) and into intentional choice...

Stress Does NOT Go With My Outfit
Are you wearing any STRESS today?
How does it feel?
Does it go with YOUR outfit?
Stress is something that has become the norm and in many circles can even be a badge of honor, similar to the glorification of busy. Been there...still there?
However, we know that when we experience, feel, & wear our stress for any period of time, it feels a lot less like a badge of honor and more like a 20-ton load on our backs, for all to see.
And, as I recently learned, your body will give you a WAKE-UP CALL, in my case SHINGLES, if you ignore any of the warnings for too long.
It's a bit ironic actually... this whole stress thing... since stress was something we needed back in the "running from a lion to save my life" days as a natural way to keep us safe.
In today's world, we've manipulated that fight or flight response in a way that's causing harm & draining our energy faster than the lion we were...
