Does your morning start in a panic? You know what I’m talking about…

The alarm goes off and maybe after hitting snooze a couple times, you roll over and grab your phone. This was me. Every. Single. Morning. Without fail, I’d reach for my phone the second I was awake and opened my dreaded email app. I hadn’t even had my morning coffee!

Jim Rohn says “Either you run the day, or the day runs you”. I was definitely letting the day run me. Can you relate? If you’re really honest, I’ll bet your routine is similar.

In this episode, I’m going to share nine secrets I’ve implemented into my morning routine and why it’s crucial to my day. Including, why I no longer hit the snooze button (yeah, it’s true!), how to take control of your thoughts, healthy habits to kick start your day, and boost productivity.

When you follow these nine steps, I can guarantee that you’ll begin to look at your life differently, find yourself more grateful, more prepared for your day, and get more done on a regular basis.
