What I have noticed so far in my routine is that I feel accomplished, energetic, and more joyful in my days. These routines incorporate my necessary tasks to complete as a mom and homebody. It also includes time to eat and move, as well as my hobbies I enjoy. When school begins, I am looking forward to having a center of wellness daily rather than just working toward the weekend.
First, let me start off by saying that I love Rachel Hollis and the community that she has formed. She is inspiring, motivating, and knowledgeable about many things. But, the other week she talked about her green smoothies that she drinks and claimed that the only way to get them down is to gulp it. Well, you do you my friend. I like to enjoy my morning breakfast, which is why I have been able to drink my smoothies for 2.5 years Monday-Friday pre-COVID-19 and now every other day as we have similar schedules that allow us to sit down and enjoy breakfast together. If I had to gulp my smoothie and plug my nose, I wouldn't have been able to do it for more than a week. As they say, what is good for the goose is not for the gander.
You may ask what on earth does my daily priorities have to do with a morning smoothie. Well, other than my health is one of upmost priorities, these are two things that I do most mornings to begin my day that leads me toward a successful start which empowers me to keep on going through the afternoon and the evening.
