I am quite a sight in the morning – you would not want to be around me. I am snappy, rude and an epitome of incivility. Hubby and Kiddo are the usual recipients of my morning glory. Cherry seems to escape every time because she is a late riser 🙂
I have been on a quest to solve this problem for a really long time and I just may have cracked the code. I tried early morning journaling, meditation etc but nothing worked.
I thought …
Every day, I load my dishwasher at the end of the day, so that when I sail into my kitchen in the morning, my pots n pans are ready to sail with me into the day. Similarly, I thought, what if I cleared out all my mental junk at night, so that in the morning , I am mentally clean and ready to embrace the day.
I have started journaling at night. I pour my stream of consciousness into the pages and go to bed. When I wake up, I feel refreshed and light. Night time journaling works for me because I am way too busy in the morning. Night is when things wind down and I find myself with more time.
Aaah, I love it when I find solutions to my own problems 🙂
