Habit #3 – Getting dressed down to the shoes first thing each morning
You have a job. Your job is to care for yourself and your family. You may also have a job whether you work from home or outside of your home. You deserve to feel great about yourself. One of the best ways to do this is to get dressed down to the shoes first thing every morning.
When you are dressed down to the shoes, your brain is signaled that it is time to do something. It also changes how you feel about yourself. You hold yourself upright. You feel more confident. You have more energy.
If you suffer from depression, getting dressed down to the shoes helps you feel better about yourself. It gives you a positive feeling.
Think about the days you stay in your pajamas. You feel sluggish. You are not motivated to get moving along on your daily routine.
Your daily routines and habits are the keystones to you having a happy and healthy life.
We like routines. We don’t like to make changes. If your morning routine is lacking in the area of getting dressed right off the bat, I want you to lay out your clothes the night before and get dressed first thing in the morning. Do this for two weeks at a minimum but strive to do it for a month.
Take note if you feel better and have more energy. You should find that you are also more productive. You will also be ready to leave your house at a moment’s notice when you are dressed down to the shoes. You cannot plan for an emergency, but you can be prepared to leave by being dressed.
My morning routine is deeply ingrained, and I don’t even think about the steps of it. I just do it. That is how I know it has become a habit.
Today’s Zone Mission is to declutter the top of your nightstand and dust.
Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.
Have a great day!
