The Early Bird Challenge

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to your daily routine, and for a long time my morning rituals have been less-than-stellar.

Most days, my alarm goes off at 7am and I snooze for about 10 minutes, leaving me with just enough time to slap some make up on my face, toss my hair into some kind of acceptable up-do and run out the door at 7:30 to head to the office.

That’s not much of a morning routine, and it doesn’t set the stage for a fruitful or productive day. That’s why I’ve decided to hold myself to an early-rising challenge.

For the next three weeks, I’m going to wake up at 6am and GET.SHIT.DONE.

Here are some of my goals for this challenge:

  • To create a morning ritual that leaves me refreshed and ready for the day
  • To work some stretching and exercise into my mornings
  • To make myself coffee and a healthy breakfast each morning
  • To spend some time brainstorming and blogging in the early morning hours

I’ve got three weeks to settle into a nice morning routine and find what feels most comfortable to me. I really hope I can create a morning ritual that I can stick to for a long period of time.

Yesterday, I kicked off my challenge with a steaming cup of coffee and almond milk and some quality chatting time with the boyfriend.

Hopefully I can stick to my guns and keep this challenge going strong.

So what do you guys think? Is your morning routine refreshing, or is it in need of a major face-life?
