A Few New Changes I am Implementing into My Daily Routine
New Changes I am Implementing into My Daily Routine
Over the last few months, I’ve incorporated more structure into my daily routine. It helps keep me accountable and stay on task. I have decided to take the structure even further. I’m going to share a few new changes with you that I am implementing into my daily routine.
I’m a very driven and motivated person, but seeing the outcomes from little changes in structure motivates me to do more!
1. Wake up an hour earlier
Just typing this first one stresses me out a little bit. I’m sure you’re cringing too, if you are not a morning person. I certainly am not.
I have been reading, listening to and taking courses over the last month about productivity and taking your dreams to the next level.
In all of the materials I’ve taken in, all of them suggest waking up earlier. One of them even suggested waking up at 5am.
There was a time when I woke up at 5:20am every day for work, but that was mandatory at the time.
I’ve struggled with this idea and have gone back and forth between 5am and just an hour earlier.
The 5am club?
There’s a book called The 5am Club written by Robin Sharma. The theory behind this is to get up at 5am and get 20 minutes of exercise, 20 minutes of planning and 20 minutes of studying in before you start your day.
I’m landing on waking up an hour earlier each day, starting next week. I’ve also decided to let my body rest when I need it and not force it.
Girl Stop Apologizing and implement these new changes!
I’m reading Girl Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis right now and she also advocates for waking up an hour earlier to get some quality me time in.
I don’t know about you, but my mornings are usually pretty busy, so the thought of having some quiet me time is ultimately what has convinced me to try this. I’ll check back in and give you an update after a week.
2. Practice active gratitude
Speaking of Rachel Hollis, she also suggests practicing active gratitude every day.
She has for years, and currently practices this by writing down 10 things she is grateful for every single day.
They can be as simple as being thankful for sleeping through the night restfully.
I’m a silver linings kind of girl and am super thankful for everything I have. So why not write it down every day to look back on?
This drill also helps modify your mindset so you start looking at things more optimistically. This one really excites me!
