Hey guys! Welcome back. Life has been pretty chaotic recently and I’ve really been struggling with burn out and stress. I have felt really overwhelmed and fallen back into some pretty bad habits. And as I work to try to overcome these challenges and come out on the other side stronger, I have realized a few things that have become really helpful. As most of you know I have never really been a morning person. I am more productive, creative, and energetic at night. I’ve always been that way. Maybe it’s because it’s more quiet or maybe it’s just when I have the most energy. Regardless, I have always done the most at night.
But recently I have found a new appreciation for mornings. Not just mornings, but quiet mornings. I strive to have the kind of morning where I’m not looking at my phone, not paying attention to anything work related, and just having that time for myself. It’s given me a new outlook on the day ahead and helped motivate me to push through whatever the day has in store for me. It’s the perfect way for me to recharge and prepare myself for the day. Quiet mornings are an opportunity for me to do what makes me happy before taking care of the needs of other people.
It’s been so nice to be able to start the day with intention and purpose. It’s a fresh start and a way to know that I am going into a new day with a new perspective. It’s a time for me to do the things I am too tired to worry about when the day is over. I love sleeping and I always make sure I’m getting enough, but I also know that sleeping in doesn’t really help as much as I used to think it did. I used to use sleep as a way of avoiding starting the day because I was so anxious and worried about what would happen, but I have seen the benefits of starting the day early on my own terms.
I love the quiet mornings because it’s the only time during the day that is just about me. I’m able to take some time to do the things I want to do for myself. It’s not selfish because I haven’t checked in yet. It’s the perfect time for me to really dive deep and figure out what I want and need to accomplish that day. It’s the perfect time for me to set my goals, plan out what I’m doing and when I’m doing it, and really prepare myself. That quiet time before the day really starts is so therapeutic and relaxing to me.
I will always be more of a night owl, but I have learned to appreciate the quiet mornings. They give me the time I need to recharge and prepare for a new day. Thank you so much for stopping by!
