How to Create a Morning Routine That Gets You Focused + Inspired

Yesterday I finished serving my civic duty on Grand Jury in NYC. While most people say, “Ugg, jury duty, that stinks”, I must admit it has been one of the most interesting, creatively stimulating experiences I have ever had in NYC.

Being on put on the special narcotics cases, I learned how black and white the law is when it comes to drugs. While being stripped searched, you were either caught with 6 twists of crack cocaine in your butt crack, or you weren’t. If you were, you have a problem. It’s called jail. Buh-bye. #truestory

While I learned a whole bunch of drug laws, I also learned how important it is to have a killer morning routine. Please connect the dots now, Erin.

One of my biggest personal challenges in serving Jury Duty was having to show up to the same place at the same time (early morning) every day. How do you not tune out? How do you stay engaged? How do you not get annoyed that the young female Assistant District Attorney is neglecting her opportunity to step into her power by using a mousy voice and hunching over the podium?

Whether you work in an office, or perhaps like me, your schedule varies day to day, having a morning routine that sets your head in the right direction is probably one of the most important things you can do.

That precious hour or so between when you wake and when you set sail for the day, can either be used to focus your boat on your ideal destination or it can be used hurrying and scurrying looking for a clean pair of panties.

I have always said, my body wakes up around 8 am. My personality doesn’t join the party until about 10. Early mornings are not, and never have been my jam. If I don’t set my myself up properly in the am, even readily accessible clean panties won’t save me. I’m a grumpster all day long.

In today’s video, I share with you three QUICK + EASY tips to choose from that you can IMMEDIATELY incorporate into your morning. Each one has the ability to ground you and leave you feeling connected and inspired. (These tips work really well EVEN if you are a Morning Glory!)

The first tip I share has literally changed my life. I have been doing it for over 15 years and it never ceases to lose its magic. It is the key to my growing kingdom. With this tool, my whole morning is changed in 15 minutes.

If you feel like you are trying to overcome a particular challenge at the moment, one of these tricks could significantly decrease your feelings of vulnerability. (Meaning you won’t be pulled by other peoples negative energy, including your own egos 🙂

Check out the vid and remember to leave me a comment. Let me know which of these tips you are going to try this week. Or if you have your own, please, by all feel free to share it. I love to add more tools to my tool chest.
