The Daily Prompt – No. 42

Describe a decision you made in the past that helped you learn or grow.

A major decision that’s helped me with my personal growth is having a morning routine. Being consistent has always been a struggle for me. I remember when I was young my dad would give me a datebook to help me plan my days in advance. But I could never keep up with it.

Having a morning routine gives me a sense of discipline, consistency, and accomplishment for the day. This is true, especially when I workout. (When those endorphins hit, I feel like I’m on a new level.)

My normal morning routine consists of:

  • Prayer/Meditation
  • Writing in a journal
  • Read for a couple of minutes.
  • Exercise
  • Listening to a sermon or a faith building podcast

I don’t do each one perfectly. But if I can’t get it done in the morning, then I’ll make it a point to accomplish each item later in the day. if you don’t have one, try it out. It may work for you.
