The Worst Sleep Since Forever

Last night was the worst night for sleep I’ve had in a long, long time. I woke up three times before my alarm. Twice after a not-bad-enough-to-be-called-a-nightmare dream. When my alarm finally did go off I felt grumpy and out of sorts.

I’m still currently in a not so comfortable mood, but I’m doing better. This is because of a few important aspects of my morning routine. First, I had clothes laid out already. It feels really nice to not have to look when you wake up grumpy. Second, I make myself do jumping jacks in the morning. This gets blood flow to the brain and makes you more limber and alert. Thirdly, I had a schedule that showed important things to do today. Knowing what I’m going to do when I wake up makes me way more likely to actually get up on time.

Even though I had a terrible wakeup, I have the opportunity to make my morning better. And I’m working towards it, as others should.

I might also try some morning meditation.

For those of you wondering about yesterday’s stuff, I did as much banking figuring out as I could before it became out of my hands. I hopefully find out the status of my account today.

Question Time!

1. What am I excited about today?
Creating more content for my new extra special blog! It’s called The Rhythmic Story and is focused on meditation, specifically the style I created.

2. What am I grateful for today?
Today I am grateful for paper. I love writing on it and using it for my schedules even if Chalene suggests using an app. I am also grateful for instant oatmeal. Quaker knows his stuff. And I love the Maple & Brown Sugar style, although the Apples & Cinnamon is nothing to sneeze at either.

3. What am I absolutely going to complete today?
I am going to create the content for the blog, finish reading a book for my Elance work, and come up with one amazing meditation prelude that I can use for my CD.

Now on to my little list:
1. Twitter Writing Prompt
2. Interact on Facebook as my Professional Page
3. Email Stuff
4. Khan Academy
5. Finish the Book

Have a happy and productive morning!

Maybe a Schedule Will Work?

Good morning!
So I didn’t post anything yesterday… Or the day before… So on the 19th it was my mom’s birthday and we went to the mall and had fun. Then yesterday I had an anxiety attack and ended up spending almost the entire day in bed. Yup.

So today I’ve decided I might try to use a schedule, because hey, maybe a schedule will work to help me out. Who knows?

1. What am I excited about today?
Hopefully tying up my last two loose ends! Oh, and Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Challenge of course.

2. What am I grateful for?
Today I am grateful for… My mom. She brought me tea a couple days ago and I’m just trying it out now. It’s yummy and making my morning a little bit easier. I’m also grateful for my “secret” food stash that I have specifically for when nothing else in the house looks yummy.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
Well, both of my ends to tie are pretty large projects so I’m going to say I’ll complete one of them today. Plus the thirty day challenge. And also… Today I’ll remember to do the writing prompt and my exercise. Yay!

So the first couple things on my schedule are:
1. 30 day challenge
2. Loose end number 1
3. Next week’s challenge picking
4. Loose end number 2
5. Writing prompt!

Are you all excited? I’m excited. I’ll probably hibernate in my room while I do most of this stuff because we just had a mini blizzard outside and because everything in the kitchen and living room is causing me distractions.

Have a productive day!
