Create a draft morning routine and commit to practicing it for two weeks. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect! It also doesn’t have to be long—a short but sweet morning routine can be incredibly powerful.
Change, add or remove when things don’t feel right.
Keep tweaking your routine until you feel peace, flow, and ease.
Protect your mornings. Keep them free from interruptions, email, and social media.
*Parent-friendly tip from Ashley: For those of you with little ones, try waking up before your little ones do—even if it’s just 15 minutes earlier than them—and flow through your morning routine then. Or involve your little ones in your morning routine (e.g., pop them in the stroller and go for a walk).
