Today I wanted to share 10 things I like to do before 10 am. This list isn't always in order, but I find these things help me have a more productive day and to stay focused.
When I wake up I usually say a prayer for the day. I Doing this helps put me in a good headspace. After I say my prayers in the morning depending on the time I'll stay in bed for a little while and then I'll get up and start my morning.
2. Open the curtains
Rain or shine, my curtain will be opened lol. Since I have depression, light seems to help my symptoms. It's something beautiful about opening the curtains on a sunny morning.
3. Get a cold bottle of water
I love water and I try to drink a bottle in the morning before I get my day started. It helps me hydrate.
4. Take a shower
A shower helps wake me up in the morning. I'm usually up early and getting things done in the morning, but I'm not a morning person lol.
5. Get breakfast
Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day. I'm not the greatest on eating breakfast, but I eat breakfast more than I used to.
6. Write down the days agenda/goals
I used to use a planner, but sometimes planners give me anxiety. I'll like structure and organization, but I find a regular notebook helps
When I speak words over my life and myself I try to speak postive things into existence and work on making them a reality. Above are a few of the affiliate that I shared on my blog at the beginning of year. If you want to read all of my affirmations for 2021 you can read that post HERE.
I don't do this everyday, but I try to get a short morning walk in for about 10 to 15 minutes. Also when I get out of bed in the morning I do a few stretches for about 5 to 10 minutes.
10. Schedule Free Time
Depending on what I have going on, I try to schedule some free time for myself. It doesn't have to be long. I listen to music, or in this instance burning a candle. Aromatherapy is so peaceful.
