Doesn’t life feel like it’s on a revolving door of the same day in and day out routine?
You or your children are up first. You get a bit of quiet time and solitude before they’re up, or they wake you up with hugs, kisses and “I’m hungry”.
I’ve been making a point to get up around 6-6:30am at least once a week. This doesn’t completely drain me, but it also gives me just ONE day where I get time to myself. Time to sit in our dark living room, write up a blog post, but the majority of the time I sit here staring at our beautiful, new Christmas tree, just thinking.
Lately, I’m trying to get myself back into the morning routine I started with at the beginning of COVID-19, but ultimately throughout the summer months, it got pushed aside because well…gardening.
It goes like this;
3. Daily Gratitude & Journaling
4. Heart Thoughts Cards: Affirmations
When I stick to this routine, I feel like NOTHING can break me. Not the daily COVID update, not the new numbers, not the anxiety, depression or isolation. I feel as though I’m the strongest I can be, both mentally and physically when I’m in this routine. This is when I feel the most in power and in control. Right now, that’s hard to get.
I’m thinking about starting a 5-10 Day Gratitude Group – where we practice our Daily Gratitude together, I share my Affirmation Card of the day, ask you what it makes you feel, and just check in. If you’re in, comment below or message me on IG @lindsay.percy89 and mention this post!
