How is your current morning routine working for you?
Have you really stepped back recently and taken a good look at what you do every morning?
Sometimes we get in ruts.
Sometimes we do the same things each and every day without even thinking about them.
But we still feel like we are always 2 steps behind and backtracking all the time!
It may be time to make a new morning game plan!

What Is Most Important To You?
The best place to start is with a new set of tasks that are most important to you. Figure out a preliminary time during which you want to get them accomplished.
If your goal is to go for a run in the morning, you may decide to do that first thing before getting a shower and having breakfast.
If your goal is to meditate each morning, you may decide it would work best after you’ve had a cup of coffee.
If your goal is to find some time for reading or your favorite hobby in the morning, you could carve out some time before everyone else gets up and while you enjoy that first coffee.
The same goes for wanting time in the morning to work on your business or learn something new.
Then work the rest of your morning chores around these new plans.
It may take some shuffling around and mixing up of your current routine, but with a little creative thinking and a bit of flexibility, I’m sure you can come up with a working plan.
It's Not Natural. It Takes Work.
Making over your morning and turning it into a new routine isn’t something that comes natural to most of us. It takes a little while to get into the groove of things.
My suggestion is that you write your new morning game plan down.
It’s easy to forget what you’re planning to do.
Writing it down will not only give you a reference to refer back to, but also solidify your new plan in your mind.
Put the note, or notebook where you jotted down your new plan on your night table or somewhere else where you’ll see it first thing in the morning.
It will serve as a reminder of what you’re intending to do differently in the morning.

It's Not Written In Stone
Even though you’ve written your plan down, it’s important to realize it’s not written in stone.
The well-laid out plans don’t always work when put into action.
Adjust it and make changes as needed until you come up with a new morning game plan that works well for you and the rest of your family.
Once you have that, it’s time to make it the new routine.
