Mornings can make or break your day. Oftentimes we have the best intentions the night before. Before we go to bed we think to ourselves, what did I accomplish today? Then, after reflection of the day that got away, we challenge ourselves to wake up renewed and refreshed tomorrow, with a plan to manage the day better.
Then we wake up, and after hitting the snooze button we grab our phones to check on emails and social media. Next, we hit the floor running and whatdoyaknow, the day is already running us! We lose track of the best intention we had the night before, the one about starting a new morning ritual.
This cycle seems to repeat itself over and over again. While we dream about managing our days better, we try to grab hold of the day too late. It’s all about the morning, the morning is what we have to control.

My favorite tip is the first tip. Can I tell you something about myself? I am horrible when it comes to waking up by an alarm clock. I am one of those people who hits the snooze button easily four times before I even move a leg out of bed. No exaggeration… I’ve been this way my entire life.
I can certainly embrace number 4, seeing as I spend too much time planning and letting little fires distract me. Gotta practice self care a lil better in 2017. How about you?
