Funny, how such small things can have an impact on your entire day.
I wouldn’t have thought that such little steps would make as big of a difference as they do.
But after years of trying…and failing…and trying again, I realized that it really did matter. That my morning routine had a significant impact – not only on my day, but on my entire family. It was then that I determined to be more purposeful on how I began each day….
So today I’m answering these questions about my morning start from a Club31Women reader:
I know in a recent blog post you shared about scheduling, and especially what that looked like when your kids were smaller. If I remember correctly you had mentioned a 7am wake time. I’m only assuming this was referring to the kiddos.
What time do you rise in the mornings? I only have 2 children, but if I don’t rise before the chickens, there’s no way I can properly spend time with The Lord, catch up on emails/pay bills etc, and review our lesson plans (we home educate). Plus, I am trying to get back into the swing of an early morning workout . ~ Allison
So What Does Your Morning Routine Look Like and What Does It Include?
Alright, there it is! These are the 7 basic things I try to do every morning. I hope that helps and encourages as you get a good start to your morning too!
