It feels so strange writing for my blog on the train after doing nothing but work on the journey to and from work over the last two weeks.
I was inspired to write this post, whilst I was on a holiday from work, before I started my new job. During that time I was off work with the kids who were on Easter holiday and I figured I could take a break from everything, including my morning routine (I wanted to laze around in the morning and stay up late with hubby watching TV – hubby is a late sleeper)…however I soon realised that my productivity and mood suffered. Light bulb moment – my morning routine isn’t just something I should do before work, it is something I should do all the time as it helps shape my day.
This is my newest habit, I have only recently heard about it through a YouTube inspirational talk given by Hal Elrod (the person behind the miracle morning) and it is changing me already! It is set of rituals that you apply to your everyday morning routine, which empowers you with confidence and creativity, to go forward with your day, armed with a positive attitude and a sense of achievement….
I have been trying to write this post for a few weeks, knowing Valentine’s Day is looming around the corner and thought wouldn’t it be nice to give my readers some ideas on how to make Valentine’s Day romantic when you have kids. Well, you can’t write what you don’t know…and with three kids I can’t remember the last time I’ve had a truly romantic Valentine’s Day!!!
