The struggle is real people.
I am not a morning person. I want to be. I am trying my darndest to be. I just can’t get up when my alarm goes off. It doesn’t matter when I set it. It can be at 6 am or at 9 am. I just feel the need to fall back asleep after shutting it off. It doesn’t matter whether I get 6 hours or 11 hours of sleep.
I recently read a book, The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. I realize that I can change my life and create more for myself and my family if I follow his morning routine suggestion. There are 6 things, he calls them SAVERS.
S = Silence
A = Affirmation
V = Visualization
E = Exercise
R = Reading
S = Scribe (writing)
I have woken up and done these things a few mornings and my days were great, much more productive. I also felt really great about myself. I was so proud.
It lasted for 3 days.
I have tried and tried for 2 months to get back on and complete my 30 day goal of doing The Miracle Morning routine. I have struggled.
As I sit here at 1:30am writing this blog post, I realize that it probably has to do with my bedtime routine. So for the next little while I am going to focus my time more on having a proper bed time routine for myself and my kids. We need a set bedtime and routine at night. I hate being a slave to a schedule though. That has never been who I am. I will need flexibility and realistic according to our lifestyle.
I am hoping this is a great change for me. I am hoping we can all embrace it. I know we are going to start slow with baby steps. I know we will get a rhythm and routine going.
I can’t wait!!
