I find my mornings to be very hectic as I am sure most of you do. My morning starts off like most others I am sure….getting the kids breakfast and lunch boxes made. Getting them out the door on time.
I usually get right to work as soon as my daughter is out the door.
I love being able to work from home. It allows me to juggle my duties as homemaker, blogger and Realtor. As a result, my days are slammed usually well into the evening.
I find myself not eating breakfast until I’m starving. Sometimes that is well after 10 am. I run on coffee until then. My resulting habit usually brings on a late morning headache.
One of my goals for 2016 is to carve out a little me time each day to read. I absolutely love to read. I’m not talking Facebook!
I find that the only time these days that I take to actually read is when at the beach. Then I devour books.
The only way that I am going to be able to fit this in is if I strategically plan it. Make it a ritual.
I’ve decided to carve out 30 minutes in my morning to SIT down to eat breakfast and read.
The introduction to the book that I am reading sums it up best!
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. -E.B. White
The book that I am reading is about dealing with a busy life and getting it under control. You can find it (affiliate link) HERE.
I like variety in my breakfast routine. Sometimes I’ll eat oatmeal or some eggs, but the easiest most mornings is a great tasting, filling cereal.
Nature Valley Cereal comes in 3 varieties.
● Baked Oat Bites, 16.25 oz. box
● Honey Oat Clusters, 15.75 oz. box
● Chocolate Oat Clusters, 15.75 oz. box
Nature Valley starts with great ingredients like 100% whole grain oats and honey. It’s packed with nutrients and protein to fuel your busy day ahead.
Creating the ritual has truly added a calming start to my day after getting my daughter off to school. I tried the Honey Oat Clusters.
Paired with a glass of juice and a bowl of fresh fruit, I am seeing the late morning headaches come to an end. I must say, I am really enjoying this planned 30 minutes to my day.
