This past weekend I was this close to a meltdown. {holds fingers about an inch apart} It wasn’t like things were crazy or bad. In fact, things are very, very good. Everyone’s healthy, the sun’s been shining, the bills are paid. I’ve got no complaints.

Except for the jumble of things going on in my mind.

There are things that I want to do to make life easier, more enjoyable, slower. They aren’t hard things to tackle. They’re all really good things, but they were one big mess in my head.

Where do I even begin?

I want traction. I want to move forward on our family’s and my goals [3]. I want to make sense of these big dreams and enjoy the life God has given me.

I want my insides and my outsides to be as calm and peaceful as this lake:

So, here’s how I’m tackling things:

Thanks to reading One Bite at a Time [4], I’m trying to work out a morning routine to start the day off right. It’s a Morning High Five [5] for Mama, if you will.

My Morning High Five

  • drink a glass of water
  • drink a cup of coffee, cream, 2 sugars
  • journal my prayers
  • read the Bible and ride the exercise bike
  • take a shower and get dressed

It isn’t rocket science, but it does set the tone for the day.

For the rest of the time, I’m revisiting these 7 habits to help me move forward. Even if there’s still a swirling mass in my head, if I know that I’m on the right track, I can relax and know things will be okay.

1. Worry less [6].

2. Read more [7].

3. Keep a household notebook [8].

4. Be prepared [9].

5. Eat better. [10]

6. Set financial goals and pursue them. [11]

7. Plan more downtime [12].

Are you working on any good habits?
