Define Your Power Hour

School has been in session for over a month. Activity schedules have been set. Laundry, dishes, and house cleaning never end. Your fridge is empty, and you need to walk the dog. Oh, yes, and you might have a career on top of all of that. Wait…your kid needs help with homework, and you can’t get the other one off of Fortnite. Sound familiar?
Many of us face these challenges, and I wanted to share something I learned to help a person start their day off right. It’s called a Power Hour, and your Power Hour many look different that someone else’s. Businesses use it to improve productivity, but why can’t we use it to succeed in this thing called life. Nonetheless, it’s a way for you to start your day off on a positive foot, rather than waking up dreading some of the challenges of the day.

1. First off, do not roll over in your bed in the morning and look at your phone. I repeat, do not look at your phone first thing in the morning. I can’t stress this enough.

2. Affirmations: Writing down positive affirmations is powerful, but if you don’t get them written down, look in the mirror and tell yourself that you’re going to have a great day. Seriously, try it.

3. Take a look at your calendar and see what’s up for the day.

4. To Do List: Add to it, then later check those babies off!

5. Get your workout in. Remember this time if for you.

6. Check email and go through text messages you may have missed or haven’t responded to.

Your Power Hour may not happen until you get the kids off to school. That’s totally fine, just as long as you get it done. Lord knows I’m not perfect at it, but anything to help start your day off right is fantastic.
How would your Power Hour look? What ideas can you add to this list? We all could use new ideas and I welcome anything that will help others.
