In this podcast series, I will be sharing how my habits, routines, and the different ways I think about time. This week I’ll be sharing my morning routines.

I always learn more from listening to real-life stories of how other women are “getting it done.” Thanks for letting me share mine with you!

It's time to dive into the workweek.

Before I go any further, I just want to remind you that here at Organize 365®, we view your “work” as “whatever you spend the majority of your Monday - Friday doing during the day.” 

Why is it important to define our workday as “work”?!

It was so powerful for me to redefine “work” for myself and view my seasons of parenting, homeschooling, and being the family medical liaison as “work” because then I could embrace and apply better routines & productive habits to my day.

I share one week of my morning routines recorded in November in this week's podcast. While recording this week, I realized that I actually have two different morning routines.  

Listen in as I share how I “bucket” my morning routine to line up with the kind of work I’ll be doing each day of the week.

As a bonus, I added on to this podcast episode my morning routine when my kids were in high school. 

Hands down, one of the best habits I embraced for my mental health was establishing daily routines. 

Why? Because it gave my “never-ending to do list days” structure and broke my day into buckets of time. 

We all need structure, routines, and transitions in our days.

This podcast series is not for you to compare yours and my schedules, but to open your thoughts to explore the possibilities of what could be in your everyday life. My morning routine has continued to change and evolve over the years and will continue to do so in the future.

Do you have a morning routine? Is it time to add or take something away from your morning routine?
