The Morning Series: December 4th
Well, we are currently in Edinburgh enjoying what the capital of Scotland has to offer and scoping out some of the great recommendations you sent our way on instagram earlier this week (thanks!). Though we are away, I still wanted to share with you all the sketches that I did this week during my new and improved morning routine. It has been really wonderful being able to sit down each morning and slowly warm up my creative juices. I feel like I can create at my best level almost each and every day now. I wont pretend everything is instantly perfect though; life is not perfect—that would be boring. It's okay to break routine for sanity or just to change things up for a day or so. You have to listen to your own needs and do what is right for you. There are definitely still down days here and mornings that are pure chaos (ahem thanks leaky shower). It is on those days, I find myself reading for longer or doing a word puzzle instead of drawing. The main element here and key to it all is waking up with positive intentions. That mindset has been a game changer for my mood. (I think my to-do list is quite into it too.) So here's to positive change and brighter, better mornings!
Eventually I plan to go down to posting The Morning Series updates once a month so things don't get too repetitive around here and so those who do not follow along on instagram can still see the sketches to hold me to my creative goals. But for now I'm enjoying chatting about mornings with you all at the end of each week and sharing the progress and thoughts along the way!
Have you made any changes to your morning routine lately? What are they and how have they helped?
