Living With Intention Series: Create A Meaningful Morning Routine

Danette Layne's Living With Intention Series: Create A Meaningful Morning Routine.

Danette Layne, a Speaker, Author, and Full Potential Coach from the Tri-Cities, is an expert when it comes to starting the day the right way. Layne says having a morning routine can be beneficial because it's like "hitting a daily reset button."

In the video above, Layne shares her advice for creating a meaningful morning routine:

  1. Learn something to help you grow - i.e. listen to a motivational podcast, read a book, watch a YouTube video
  2. Move your body - i.e. stretching, yoga, full workout
  3. Empty your mind - i.e. meditation

Layne says an effective morning routine doesn't have to take out a huge chunk of your day. Whether it takes 5 minutes or 2 hours, your daily practice can still have a profound impact. She suggests "marrying two things" or multi-tasking to save time. For example, you could listen to a podcast while doing your makeup, or read while walking on the treadmill.
