How do you start your morning? Give us a play by play-- time you get up, 3-5 things you do to start your day.
I wake at 5am (I'm part of a 5am club so I call in and listen from 5-5:05: giving myself 30 min of quiet- (NO CELL PHONE) time. I pray two simple prayers before I get out of bed: Thank you for another day and Use Me", Coffee (with almond milk and stevia) and then pick an Oracle Card out of my new EnVision Oracle Deck for Entreprenuers and then I journal for 10 min. about the card and message that is resonating for me. Then I do a 10-15 guided meditation. Then I read at least 10 pages in a book. I then I either get to the gym for 45 min or to the beach for a brisk walk. I'm fortunate enough to live in Naples FL so both are a choice each day.
What advice do you have for other female entrepreneurs looking to create healthier and invigorating morning routines and habits?
Start with small changes but START. I also believe in 'ritual over routines' IF you have a morning routine that is feeling like another 'to-do' list (as in checking things off, change things up. I will French Press my coffee some mornings and warm the milk and froth it versus just the normal coffee pot set the night before and creamer. I will light a candle while journaling or play soft music. I will take a class instead of just heading into the gym. It feels that my morning routine is more about self care then routine and that's what I'm shooting for. I also think it's super important to review your goals daily as well as your vision board. I spend my first 10 min in my office doing affirmations, reviewing my goals, putting myself into my future self space while looking at my vision board and FEELING the feelings (giddy and excited) about all ready being their or using that 'thing' so I'm on a higher frequency for manifesting.
What are some of your favorite leisure activities?
Walks on the beach. Sunsets and taking pictures of them. Time with a girlfriend or friends just enjoying lunch, happy hour, music, etc. Reading and writing of course
Share a favorite affirmation that other female entrepreneurs could benefit from.
