With the new government directives, we are witnessing a new normal gradually being introduced in our daily lives. Offices are somewhat open meaning people are finally getting back to work.
Nonetheless, many are still struggling to get back to the rhythm of things particularly now with little to no motivation due to factors such as pay cuts which have led to gross financial problems both on individual and family levels.
Which is understandable. Even so, getting up and showing up is key as we try to find a way to continue forging ahead despite what seems like an endless pit of problems.
So if you are struggling to get back into the swing of things, don’t beat yourself too much. There is light at the end of that dark tunnel and the light has a name, morning routine. How you start your day sets the vibrations of the entire day. Hence it is for you to determine what kind of vibration you intend for your day, positive or negative.
And as it is such a personal space, it is for you to decide what to include in your routine and what not to. Mine is to cheer you on by giving you some advantages of having a good proper and structured morning routine.
- Helps you stay organized
A morning routine comes with a to-do list. What this does it gives your morning and rest of the day structure. This is obvious given that you take time to sit and organize what activities will be done in the morning giving you the chance to give a hard look at your day and figure how to plan it accordingly.
It drowns them. You get to deal with the negative, lethargic, and moody voice that nags at you every so often. How? Because you are set with activities you have planned and purposed to do the entire day. Whether you are working at home or in the office, you are set and undeterred to get things done.
It gives you an accountability partner, your list, which reminds you every other day whether you are failing or winning which is perfect because if you are like me, failure is a bitter pill to swallow, and with a constant reminder of that is even worse.
I know things are tough but with time and an intended effort to cheer yourself on and show up for yourself every day, things will be fine. Remember, how you start your day sets you up for failure or success and the answer is in your morning routine.
