Creating a Routine

Routines are something I really crave.. especially when I start to feel lost in my life. For the past couple of days… weeks? I’ve been feeling listless. (hah) I feel like I have no goals. Just constantly picking something up and getting distracted.

I want to make the following changes to my life. I know the importance of habit stacking. Somebody commented recently that they wouldn’t know what to do if they fell off one of their habits.

I responded, set hourly time-based foundations so that if you fall off after you take a shower (I mean, how many of us HASN’T scrolled on their phones for an hour in their towel?) You’d just have to wait until the next hour based habit.

The below is what I want to start incorporating into my life so that I can a) have my shit together b) feel accomplished daily and c) be healthier overall.

7am – Wake up with gratitude

  • Make Bed
  • Go to the gym for some wake up cardio
  • Or Yoga

8am – Shower
