Do you have a morning routine? Mine involves me prying my eye mask off and making sure it's REALLY morning and that my alarm isn't lying 😂, then taking my thyroid pill (I take Armour) and then rolling out of bed, brushing my teeth, getting dressed and then taking the dog on a 30-40 min walk. These days I listen to a podcast (usually either @jameswedmore or @lifecoachschool ). Then I come back, scramble to get the kids' lunches and snacks packed for camp, eat breakfast, drop my kids off, and then start my day.
That's my routine. No fancy meditating or journaling or ceremony. I'd LOVE to be able to include that stuff into my morning but I value my sleep to keep my hormones, AI diseases, symptoms, etc all in control, so sleep is a bigger priority to me than journaling in the morning. I DO try to fit those in throughout the day, but mornings are just too busy for me.
I bring this up just to point out that your morning routine - or any routine, doesn't need to look like some pristine IG'ers beautiful meditative feed. They all look pretty and sure can be inspirational, but don't get caught up in thinking that you CAN'T be healthy without doing it. Sometimes healthy can look like a hot mess from the outside. But it's a well oiled machine for me from where I'm standing! 😜
