This is not going to be a typical morning post. But then again, there are not many "typical" things about my morning.
I realize the benefits of your traditional morning routine staples — journaling, meditation, running. Surely they have helped thousands of people over the years. Adding all of these to my morning routine might make me a more fit and mindful person.
There's just one problem.
They all make me want to vomit.
As a writer, I realize that I am supposed to love journaling. It's reflective, after all. It helps you process your feeeeelings. It helps you learn from your life.
Blah, blah, blah.
I never got into it.
Meditation is just as bad. Maybe I just have trouble with being stillness, but in the morning, I'm ready to GO. I don't want to sit and think about anything.
Besides, I don't use my mornings to reflect, I use them to progress.
