The last couple weeks I think I’ve done a pretty good job of being kind to myself and honoring my desire to slow down.
If you’re not sure what I’m talking about you can read last week’s note by clicking here.
This week the tide is turning.
My inner voice is telling me it’s time to start moving out of my cozy cocoon a bit and move closer to the groove that I had in early December.
Now, this doesn’t mean that I’m not taking care of my self or jumping into DO-ALL-THE-THINGS mode. I know myself well enough to know that’s NOT going to work for me.
This will be a slower process. And my new groove might look different than it did last year.
One of the things that fell by the wayside the last few weeks was my morning routine.
It wasn’t perfect, but it did mostly work for me. I say mostly because toward the end of the year I was thinking about how to tweak it to support me more.
Since that morning routine has mostly disappeared, this is a great time for me to think about what I want my new routine to look like, implement it, and tweak it as much as necessary.
Did the holidays change your morning routine?
Maybe January came and something you were doing EVERY morning fell by the wayside or was replaced by something else?
Or maybe you had some resolutions and changed A BUNCH of things at once and ALL those changes aren’t sticking (according to some studies right about now is when most people are abandoning their New Year Resolutions, although some studies put it at the second week of February).
If you’re trying to make a lot of other changes in your life or business right now, maybe pick one thing to add or remove from your morning routine.
If your morning routine has devolved into something that’s just not working at all (mine worked very well for taking it easy, but it’s not working so well for getting into my office when I want to in the morning), then it might be time for an overhaul.
This is a great time to take a step back and look at how your morning routine is working for you and decide what, if anything, needs to change with it.
And if you want a second pair of eyes or someone to help you with what changes you might want to make, reach out (add a comment below) and we can get something on the calendar.
