I have been thinking about my morning routine lately. Specifically, I've been thinking through the tasks I take on in the morning and if there is a better way for me to use my time. Sure, lunches still need to be made and laundry needs to be started, but I am sure there are a few extra minutes that I could carve out to make time for gratitude.
I've read countless studies that have shown that taking a few minutes in the morning to write down or think through the things that you are grateful in life help make for a more pleasant day. It makes sense, but I need to practice this and give myself the designated time to do it in so it will become a lifelong habit.
