This is a little vision into my morning routine during the week from 6:15am-8:30am aka my recipe for cooking up success on a day to day basis. Daily success is defined as making sure I sweat, making sure my family is healthily fed, spending time with the Lord, and learning something new to develop my side fitness business.
This saves me time and helps my morning become more efficient, even if the rest of my day doesn’t go as planned. It’s called BRAINLESS organization! This way it all gets done, but I don’t have to think about anything except what I’m doing IN THAT MOMENT.
Last year this 1. didn’t exist and 2. might have consisted of “Get dressed and run out the door”. I had to figure out how to structure my day differently to FEEL happier and healthier, especially when I sit at work 8 hours a day! I hated that I was rushing around all the time! (disclaimer: I still have those days occasionally haha!)
Ask yourself: “How can I use my time to give myself MORE time to LIVE more?
Getting these things done in the morning, not only sets the tone for the rest of my day, but also opens my evening time to be involved in church, to personal train, and to be present for my husband. A system allows me to give the best of myself to others and frees up my mind to be thinking and praying for where God is leading me.
One of the biggest barriers to healthy living is TIME. Life is unpredictable, but having a rhythm and organizing your time helps produce a more predictable result. I’m not aiming for perfection, but just the best I can offer to God, and then leave the rest up to Him.
So this is my morning “system”. It’s just whatever works for each person! Some people aren’t morning people, & choose to make the most of their day at night… or if they have fulfilling jobs, they don’t feel lacking! What other parts of your life do you have a system for?
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
