What’s your morning routine?

I’m not an early riser, despite my best intentions. I set my alarm for 7:30 and try to avoid snoozing and scrolling through social media first thing. This is a conscious decision as I used to feel quite anxious checking my phone before I had even opened my eyes properly!

Instead now I try to use my headspace app for 10 minutes of meditation – I love this app as it took the ‘unknown’ out of meditation for me – I open it and the next session is waiting to guide me through the process.  

I hurt my back a few years ago and have had chronic pain since – so I’m a little restricted in terms of exercising.  I know the importance of moving my body for my mental health so I practice yoga 1-on-1 with my instructor and try to incorporate walks to the Lighthouse every now and then.  

Living in Byron, everything is within walking distance so Wilbur {my dog} and I grab a coffee {every.single.day} from our coffee shop and walk to my office. I choose a card from my favourite oracle pack and set an intention for the day.  Shuffling the deck I ask ‘what do I need to hear today’ and actually find it helps with awareness of blockages and encourages a positive mindset.  I take my to-do list and highlight 3 things I want to achieve / complete that day. I find setting 3 tasks helps me manage my time and productivity levels – a must when you work for yourself.


6 Rapid Questions

Do you have a morning ritual that no matter how crazy your morning is (knowing your normal routine won’t get done), you do?
‘Insert coffee to begin’ is a very literal phrase for me. I have my double shot flat white while checking my phone. Keeping on top of my emails and Instagram {now that I’m awake} actually makes me feel like I’ve got my shit together – like I know what’s going on in the world, and my world, and i can approach the day with all the facts.
