Hello lovely friends,
Once in a lifetime, we all go through chaotic mornings. I know you know what I’m talking about, take me for instance I snooze the alarm and have to take a cold shower cause I forgot its Thursday (power rationing day) so, no electricity and I literally FORGOT to iron my work outfit the previous night. Then it just doesn’t stop there, distractions keep piling on and on making me feel like a total dead beat the whole day. Well, to be honest that’s my typical morning everyday – minus the electricity scandal of course but I always feel like every morning after snoozing the alarm, I get punished, for lack of a better word and my morning are sometimes blah because of that.
Naturally, I struggle waking up early in the morning, It’s something I am learning to embrace as opposed to straining then feeling guilty about it; my relationship with sleep at dawn is just something I’m yet to give up. To prevent my mornings from turning into full-time chaos and feeding into the rest of the day, I have adopted a few things to change the direction of my day. By doing these things, I look forward to facing the day even after snoozing the alarm and knowing I’ll be stuck in traffic for an hour:
- Making my bed and organizing the room every morning regardless of what time I wake up. This has helped reset my mind into a focused mode, I just can’t explain! There’s just something fulfilling about straightening your bed and ensuring your room is clean in the morning. This simply helps me refocus!
- Praying. I don’t pray as much as I should but every morning I commit the day to God and tell Him to take control of everything because I’m clueless of what will happen but He knows, so I hope He guides me throughout the say. That brings me peace!
- I watch or read something that triggers my existence. For me its travelling and writing. This not only fuels my dreams but it gives me a reason to live for the day. It makes me determined!
