Mornings. Bleh. I am in the office by 7:30 each morning, so my alarm is set for 5:00. I am quick to say to anyone, "I already wake up at 5:00. I'm not waking up any earlier" whenever the conversation comes up.
I am the worst about hitting snooze four times before finally getting up. And then I'm running around trying to get ready and out the door at the last minute, usually forgetting something. I typically spend the rest of the day feeling anxious and frazzled after that.
This happens more often than not and I am ready to get beyond the feeling of being rushed in the mornings, of carrying the feeling of anxiety with me throughout the day.
It's time to start being intentional about my mornings. So what if I get up at 5:00? I'm just going to have to make the decision to make sure I get in bed early enough. Trade off nights of doing nothing on the couch for intentional mornings.
Mornings with a devotional time before my day starts.
Mornings of not feeling like I'm rushing out the door, forgetting things.
Mornings that set the tone for the rest of the day.
Are you intentional about mornings? Do you have any tips for this non-morning person to help make it a little easier?
