I seem to have survived the first of about a month of very structured days intact and in good spirits. I woke up at about 7:30 and did half an hour of morning yoga with YouTube’s Adriene who is an absolute pleasure to wake up to. Whether I’m trying to fit many things into a day or struggling to motivate myself during a lull I always find that having a morning routine helps me. I generally like to sleep with my phone on airplane mode, wake up and go straight into yoga, have breakfast, shower and then get the old phone going and connect up with the world outside. The ‘generally like’ part of that statement is due to the fact that I fall out of this routine from time to time. My least favourite morning mode is when I make the mistake of checking my phone in bed and then get pulled into things immediately and two hours have gone by before I even realise that I’m sugar crashing and not actually making much sense. Starting the day on my own terms gives me a sense of ease and balance that feed into everything else I do later.
