As a mother and business woman, I get more done when I wake up in the morning because the rest is spent on seeing clients and being with the family, which is important too. I usually get asked, "How did you stick to this habit of waking up at 4:45 am?" Kathy, my co-host, and I will share our morning routines with you. Take notes and download your worksheet!

What if I'm not a morning person? I share 3 points that may make you think about the morning differently, especially between 4 and 7 a.m.  Kathy shares 5 points from an article from Forbes on how 'Successful people create morning routines" - some great takeaways from this article alone.

I share my 7 tips on creating a sustainable morning routine and these are:

  1. Start small - wake up 15 minutes before you usually wake up and start 2 days a week. Then chunk up slowly when ready.
  2. Have a plan - Make a list of what you want to do the night before, otherwise you will hit snooze and roll over.
  3. Alarm away - keep you alarm in your kitchen or another room. Once you walk down to turn it off, you will be half awake.
  4. Plan placement - keep your plan next to your alarm so you when you turn it off, your brain notices what you have to do.
  5. Have a routine - do the same thing every day right after you turn your plan off. For example, go to the bathroom, wash your face and drink a glass of water before you tackle your plan/list.
  6. Have a system - create a system where you know what you are doing every morning. For example, meditation and exercise. I have a business system for each morning, each day. Watch the video to find out more or listen to the podcast.
  7. Proper sleep time - you can-t expect to sleep at midnight and wake up at 5 a.m. So sleep between 9 and 10 p.m.

You were very easy to deal with. Pleasant manner, tone of voice and easy to speak to.  You kind of have the voice and demeanor that make people "want" to talk with you. Once people know your story, they want to talk to you more, perhaps to grab a bit of your strength and positive attitude in their own lives.  I find you to have a caring way about you. Concerned for others and how you can help them be better at being them.
