Since the start of the year, I’ve been sticking to a simple routine every day.
I've written about my morning routine before – and it's evolved (and become simpler) since then.
Each morning, I have a checklist of a handful of items I try to complete before the rest of my day starts.
- Drink a glass of water
- Have a shower
- Do 20 press-ups
- Write up what happened the day before
Each item is intended to be inexcusably simple to complete.
After three months, it’s becoming a habit.
I’ve found this to be incredibly helpful for starting my day well, and giving me structure at a time where most of normality has evaporated.
I have particularly enjoyed writing daily – to myself. My only wish is I had started this earlier.
I long for the future where I can read my diary entries from this time and be grateful it’s over.
