Now that you have a pretty good idea of what you want to do in the morning, what you don’t want to or need to do, and where to find extra minutes, it’s time to put it all together in a new morning game plan. The best place to start is with the new set of tasks that are most important to you. Figure out a preliminary timeline for accomplishing each goal. If your goal is to go for a run in the morning, you may decide to do that first thing before getting a shower and having breakfast. If you have a goal to meditate each morning, you may choose it would work best after you’ve had a cup of coffee. If your goal is to find some time for reading or your favorite hobby in the morning, you could carve out some time before everyone else gets up and while you enjoy that first coffee. The same goes for wanting time in the morning to work on your hobbies or learn something new. Then work the rest of your morning chores around these new plans. It may take some shuffling around and mixing up with your current routine, but with some creative thinking and a bit of flexibility, I’m sure you can come up with a working plan.  

How to Get Started

Making over your morning and turning it into a new routine isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us. It takes a little while to get into the groove of things. We’ll look at this in more detail in this post titled ((insert post here)). For today, just take a few minutes to write out your new morning game plan. Writing it down will not only give you a reference to refer back to, but also solidify your objectives in your mind.

Put the written game plan on your night table or somewhere that you’ll see it first thing in the morning. It will serve as a reminder of your intentions and will shift your mind into making your plans become your reality. I like to put mine next to my alarm clock on my bedroom dresser. It’s near the door of the bedroom and not within arm’s reach when the alarm sounds.

Be Flexible

Even though you’ve written your plan down, it’s important to realize it’s not written in stone. The well-laid out plans don’t always work when put into action. Be flexible, adjust, and make changes as needed until you come up with a new morning game plan that works well for you and the rest of your household.

Once you have that it’s time to make it the new routine… something we’ll cover in the next blog post, The Importance of Habits and Routines.
