I really enjoy my little routines.
Each morning, I start my day with what I call a “breakfast brainstorming” session. (Alliteration in small doses never hurt anyone). This involves my standard breakfast (oatmeal with berries and coffee), one of my journals, my favorite pen, and occasionally my computer as well. Sometimes it takes place outside, other times it takes place inside. But one thing always remains the same: it gets my creative juices flowing.
The actual brainstorming topics can range from blog ideas to craft projects to long-term goals to what I want to do with my life…the whole gamut! If I’m feeling a little stuck, I turn to the computer where I’ll read my favorite blogs or browse Pinterest for awhile. The whole point of this practice is to start my day in a creative mindset and (hopefully) continue to generate new ideas throughout the day. I’ve been doing this for years and despite the hokey name, it really works! (:
What kind of rituals/routines do you enjoy?
