Rise and Shine Challenge Days 4 and 5
I didn't get around to blogging yesterday, and the assignment for the day seemed redundant for me, because the only schedule I have is for myself. So, I decided to just do two days in the same post.
The Day 4 assignment was to create a nightly checklist to prepare for the following day. I feel like I've already gone through that, as I prefer to do much of what might be on a nightly checklist (prepare lunch, pack bags, pick out clothes, etc) in the morning. The earlier I get up the morning, the more prepared and alert I feel once work starts. So, my plan is to keep those things in my morning routine, for now. If I later decide to start working out in the morning again, I may have to readjust.
The Day 5 assignment is to think about what starts your day off well. For me, having a "schedule" in the morning before work starts my day off well. I do things in a certain order, and I get thrown off when that gets changed. Spending at least 30 minute chunk of time every morning in God's Word, along with praying and/or reading a passage before I even get out of bed help me especially with my attitude as I go about my day.
The Abundant Mama (host of this challenge) hosted a live Q&A session yesterday, and has it recorded for those of us who missed it here. I personally haven't watched it yet, but wanted to put it out there for anyone following this challenge, and for myself to watch later.
So, back to the day 5 assignment. What starts your day off well?
