While putting washing up away, I leave the Breakfast items out
I ensure unform is readily available
Packed lunches are prepared as much as possible
Everything is accessible for the morning
When I am consistent in this habit, I find I do not wake up in the middle of the night with loose ends in my head that I can’t stop thinking about. It helps me stay better organized during the day so exerting the effort at the beginning of the end of the day doesn’t really take more time. I’m not gonna give up an extra hour of sleep to do this… I’m going to use this to make my waking hours more efficient
I found that reading all of the letters and doing the exercises provided by Fabulous end up rewiring your mindset to prioritize personal development until it comes naturally.
Getting ready should be the finishing touch on a morning, not take up the whole thing.
I decide and spread out the days clothes, prepare a lunch if I need one the following day, do as much as possible prep for breakfast, make sure the house is uncluttered as waking up to a clean and uncluttered environment is so pleasing, and anything else I can do to ease the morning.
Everybody's morning is different but giving yourself a headstart by doing as much the night before makes sense.
Also there have been a few research papers (sorry don't have any links but you can use the 'researcher app to find the peer reviewed papers ) that claim hand writing the following days objectives or things that have to be done let's your brain forget about them and helps with sleep quality.
It would definitely make the next day go better. Like picking out clothes, meal prepping, etc.
For example, before i go to bed i put my water bottle (which i drink in the morning from) and that way i can wake up to a fresh inspiring morning. Or if i choose my clothes for the next day and perfectly fold it by the closet, the next day i wake up and just slip it on me, instead of waisting my time on such meaningless part of my morning routine.
But now thinking, if your mornings can feel overwhelming, it might be better to re-strategize how much and what you take on. I took on a second challenge. Then woke up this morning and Fabulous had assigned me one of their, well, assigned challenges. Now I'm feeling underwater and will put the more demanding optional challenge, which I really wanted to do, on hold.
At the same time I'm going to delete some habits because all together, combined, they've become overwhelming. Not necessarily in the future, but at the stage I'm at now.
Preparing the night before is a great idea. My problem though is being more realistic about how much I can take on and handle.
