Revamp Your Morning Routine

 I just finished running a 30-day Challenge in my Essential Oil Community Facebook Group and it was amazing! Those who joined the Revamp Your Morning Routing Challenge were simply asked to try 1 new routine/habit a day.
The goal was to simply get up and get the body moving and try a whole bunch of habits so by the end of the month, those participating could take the tools and start creating a holistic morning routine that serves them well. I didn’t want to be prescriptive and tell people exactly what they should do but this way it gave them something to try and they can keep habits that serve them and discard the ones that don’t resonate with them.
I figured I would share the laundry list of challenges here so you can incorporate any into your routine. Many have to do with setting yourself up for success the night before or getting better sleep. Because if you get better, quality sleep your morning routine will be on fire!
