How I find balance in life with my daily routine
With the general business and busyness of everyday life, it’s so easy to get swept up in the day isn’t it? But I find that by starting my day off on the right ‘foot’, it gives me a head start in overcoming any stress and negativity that comes my way throughout the day. By having a daily routine, I have time for me albeit in the early hours before any else is awake. Yes, I often struggle to get out of bed in the morning due to tiredness but I usually stick to my daily routine which happens to be in the morning (and bits of it are often repeated at night) and I really feel the difference.
So what do I do in my daily routine to keep my ‘zen’ in balance?
Yoga ~ How to right the writing with morning yoga
Yoga is a great way to give you more focus. I know this because I’ve recently worked some morning yoga into my daily routine and as a result I’ve been righting the writing because I’ve got more focus.
By setting my alarm ‘just’ half an hour earlier (just?!?), I am finding that I’ve got the time to do 10 minutes yoga and have a nice cup of hot lemon water to put the energy back in my life.
The benefits of this morning yoga are many
I feel more alert, more energised and more ‘with it’ of a morning and therefore the rest of the day.
I’ve got more time in the evening to do things like writing, blogging and housey/family stuff too because I’ve already done my zen-thing for the day!
As a result, I can truly focus on some writing without quite so much clock-watching.
I’ve got Vicky at HonestMum to thank for getting me back into yoga after her inspiring post.
And I’ve been pinning different routines to give me some yogi variety too 🙂
As for my writing… well, it seems to give me more focus which brings with it more productivity and more ideas! That’s a win-win for me finding my inner peace.
Do you do anything to energise yourself everyday? Do you find it helps with your writing practice?
