The morning routine

Every morning I practice the morning routine I learned when I read "The Miracle Morning" by Hal Elrod.

I highly recommend his book - or at least one of his videos / podcasts / linked in learning classes.

He uses the acronym SAVERS to describe his morning routine.

S - Silent Meditation
A - Affirmation
V - Visualization
E - Exercise
R - Reading
S - Scribing (by his admission, a fancy word for Writing, but he couldn't come up with an acronym if he used Writing).

The items aren't done in that order. They can be done in any order you choose. For me, I start with Exercise - just a few minutes of stretching while the dogs are running around in the yard (and the coffee is brewing).

The morning routine helps get the day off on the right foot.

I would be remiss, however, to not point out my favorite part of the morning routine, one that Hal Elrod never mentions in his book... 

Maisy doesn't help with reading, and she's downright un-helpful when I'm trying to write, but she does help with meditation.
