As I said, I’m making meditation a goal for me this year. What’s working for me is doing it after the kids go to school so the house is quiet. The morning routine for this mom often takes place later in the morning. See, it’s okay if it’s not all done at 5:30am!
I’ve come to enjoy my new routine: drop my kids off, come home and clean the kitchen, put on a load of laundry, and then sit for a meditation before I transition to work mode. I’m intentional with my time, and I know I can be more energetic throughout the morning if I give my body enough sleep, rehydrate, eat well, and then practice self-care in some way each day.
I challenge you to write down a morning routine that makes the most sense for you in the season of life you are in. If you have a newborn, it will look different than having older children. A stay-at-home mom may have a different plan than a work-outside-the home mom, and even a work-at-home mom. Write down what you want to focus on and GO FOR IT. Give it a solid effort for a few weeks and see if you notice a difference.
