This is the last week of the Rise and Shine Challenge. Here is the Week 4 Worksheet. I hope that during the course of the last few weeks, you have made some positive changes to your morning routine. I most certainly have, and I’m enjoying it. Now, every morning I look in the mirror and make positive confessions over my life. Once I’m in the car on the way to work I listen to inspirational music or encouraging words from a podcast or audiobook. Then, when I get to work I eat a healthy breakfast of whole grains and fruit or drink a protein smoothie. It really helps set the tone for the day when you start off of the right foot. When I first started making these changes I had to mark off the worksheet every day as a reminder. But, my new morning routine truly feels like a habit now. If I get in the car and forget, something clicks in my head, like “Hey you’re forgetting something!” Even on the weekend, when I finally roll out of the bed, I still have that feeling that’s it’s time to dedicate a portion of my morning to my new routine. I have not incorporated activity yet, but I still feel good, because now I know that its possible to change things up, even if you’ve done them the same way for years. I’m so happy that I took on this challenge to change my mornings!
