I find that a very good excuse for changing or improving habits is lack of time. New habits takes time in the beginning: to get into a new routine, to do things differently than you are use to and to incorporate new and healthier things into your everyday life.
From April 1st I have started to put my alarm clock 45 minutes earlier. That gives me 45 minutes more in the morning and a better and more relaxed morning routine. Do you know these days where you get a little to late out of bed and it feels like you are late all day? I do. And I decided that for all of April (and hopefully onwards) I want to be one step ahead.
This gives me not only better time but also that little extra psychological energy to make my favorite green breakfast smoothies, prepare healthy and delicious snacks to bring on the go and even do a little Chinese before class.
Like anything else good habits starts with the first step and I find that by starting my day with a good morning routine I set the stage for a good day.
