My Ideal Morning Routine

Many people living extraordinary lives say they have a morning routine that sets them up for success. Here’s the one I have been striving toward.

  1. Meditate for 30 minutes.
  2. Yin poses.
  3. Journal, including a prayer. I focus better when I write my prayers. Often brainstorms are natural at this time. While I try to hold them off in my meditation, they can come on strong during the yin session.
  4. Push-ups. I have recently added this one. Strength is important for physical longevity as well as daily fortitude to stick to one’s commitments.
  5. Blog – if I do not get this creative time in first thing in the morning, there is no room for it in the bustle of the day.

What time do I need to get up to accomplish all of the above? Around 4. It’s not as hard as it sounds. It also doesn’t happen every day. If I get up at 5:30, I may only fit in meditation and a quick prayer. If I get up past 6, all bets are off. It’s time to make the donuts.

When I go on a streak of accomplishing above, I feel alive and true to my higher purpose.
