A morning routine for mompreneurs?
Some weeks ago I was googling about “morning routine for mompreneurs” and there were more than 400,000 results. 400,000 results??? My brain was going to explode…
As entrepreneurs and even more accurate, as mompreneurs, we’re always trying to improve every aspect of our life.
We, Moms, have crazy busy schedules, so squeeze every second of the day and starting the day in the best possible way is really important, it will put you in the right tune, the achiever tune!
It always happens to me that how I start my day impacts on the outcome of that day, it’s like magic
I need to start my day with energy and that’s why I put on my boots and learned routines from the most successful entrepreneurs out there.If you win the morning, you win the day Click To Tweet
I tried very hard some of these routines, but every night, when I went to bed, I felt so stressed about all the things I have to do the next morning to be “a successful mompreneur”, that I can barely sleep.
The lists of morning routines done by famous and successful people are endless.
Tony Robbins’s morning routine is, at least, unusual:
- Submerged for a full minute in one of his cold plunge pools (57 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Three sets of 30 Kapalabhati Pranayama breaths
- He takes a few minutes to think of three things he’s grateful for
- Three minutes seeking strength and wishing good things for his family and friends
- Nutritious breakfast, usually fish and salad
I admire Tony Robbins, I really do, he is such an inspiration…but, I refused to submerge myself in a jacuzzi full of ice…
I needed to find something that worked for me...
I just had to think about what put ME into the right mood, preparing ME to go through the day with energy.
You have to do the same, don’t try to copy, just be you and do whatever makes YOU happy and helps YOU.
In my case is something simple but powerful, I need to feel that I have my day under control from the very beginning.
I need a small win early in the morning! So I started doing something as simple as making my bed as soon as I get up.
Don’t misunderstand me, I already was making my bed every day (haha), but sometimes the daily rush just crushed me like a bulldozer.
Maybe you are asking yourself what difference does it make if make my bed in the morning or not?
It makes all the difference in the world. The psychology behind it is very simple and very powerful.If you want to do the big things right, you need to do the small things right. Click To Tweet
Where did I learn this?
This is gonna be funny, I didn’t learn this from another mompreneur or momboss. I learned this from Jocko Willink, a retired US navy seal.
His book Extreme Ownership is an awesome book about leadership and how to take the reins of your life.
I built a list back then that can be also useful to boost your inspiration, so you can create your very own morning routine for mompreneurs.
I want to give it to you for free, you can try some examples described on this list, but remember, you are unique, build a routine that fits you and makes you start the day with positive vibes and full of energy.
To make a long story short…
There isn’t such thing as a universal morning routine, find your happiness and what better works for you, there isn’t “right way” or the “only way”, you have to find your own and be consistent.There isn't such thing as a universal morning routine, find your own and be consistent Click To Tweet
Takeaways – That worked for me
- Find a routine that works for you and repeat it. A predictable morning is key to getting yourself into the feeling of control.
- Follow your passion, so you’ll go to sleep wishing to wake up fast the next day.
- Above everything, do whatever it works for you, don’t try to force it, just be yourself.
