A Backup Plan for Your Morning Routine

Having a consistent morning routine is essential for setting the table for your day but having a backup plan may be just as important.  Here's a tip for being flexible with your morning routine:

  • If you were up too late the night before and keep hitting the snooze button over and over, use a modified schedule to start your day. 

A modified schedule might mean a shorter routine or doing something different like working out instead of journaling.  If I don't sleep well or am in a funk, I give myself 20 extra minutes of sleep and then go for a walk instead of my usual routine of blogging, journaling and prayer.  Having this backup plan in place is really handy and allows me to go with the flow instead of feeling defeated in the first 90 minutes of the day.
