Over the last week of attempts, fails, and wins I learned something that hadn’t ever really hit me. If you’re trying to change a morning (or probably any) habit, be sure to narrow it down. See, I was just saying in this general vague way, “I’m going to become a morning person”. But “being a morning person” isn’t born of a single habit any more than being a good cook comes from knowing how to boil water. There’s more to it.
Before implementing a new morning routine, I need to first make sure I can consistently get up at the same time each day. See, up to now I’ve been putting the cart before the horse by trying to follow Hal Elrod’s formula for a miracle morning. I will absolutely be returning to this but for now I’ll be skipping it. My body is still getting accustomed to this new schedule that’s been imposed on it, and I still struggle when the alarm goes off. When that’s no longer a major issue, then I will work on Step 2.
That being said, having a pedicure planned certainly helped! Despite an episode of insomnia last night, I was able to get up in time to have about an hour to myself to gear up for another day of watching some very active children (what a blessing!)
