I mentioned a couple of weeks ago how one of my only resolutions for 2013 was to be more intentional with how I start my mornings. For me, how I spend the first 1-2 hours of my day can drastically change how the rest of my day goes and what state of mind I’m in.
If I jump into work (which I all too often tend to do) I generally find myself feeling anxious for the rest of the day. But, if I take the time to ease into the day with some quiet time, music, and prayer, I find myself more prepared to take on the tasks of the day with a clearer mind and spirit.
Journaling is another crucial part of starting my morning off on the right foot. I used to hate journaling up until about a year and a half ago, and somehow I became utterly obsessed with it (I 100% blame/thank my best friend Jessi for that). This particular journal is from Barnes and Noble and is one of my favorites yet. It’s the perfect size, weight, paper…everything!
Starting the morning off right can make even the worst of tasks seem less dreadful.
Like laundry. Gag.
Or a busy work day that becomes a day of working with my best friend from her cozy new room/office.
(…while pinning. Caught!)
…followed by walking to Starbucks for a much-needed latte.
And then of course, it’s important to make sure to end the day on a good note
In case you were wondering…sprinkles are always a good idea.
