In the last episode (Rhett Smith Podcast 34: Nine Practices and Disciplines That Will Help You Transform Your Morning Routine) I talked at length about my morning routine and the nine disciplines and practices that accompany (on most good days). But in that episode I didn’t address a couple of very important issues, even though after I recorded it I was thinking that I had missed talking about some things.
But a couple of people contacted me to ask if I had any thoughts or suggestions on the morning routine in various stages of life…most specifically with an infant, or young kids in the house. And the other great question was how to you navigate maintaining your own morning routine in a relationship with a person who also has/wants to have their own morning routine as well? One that wasn’t mentioned, but that I thought of as I was recording this follow up was single parents and the difficulty then often have maintaining a morning routine.
So in this short episode I address these issues:
- how to navigate the morning routine with infants or kids in the house.
- the importance of acknowledging the stage of life you are in and making allowances for that.
- how to explore, support and encourage the morning routine of your partner.
- what does self-care in a morning routine look like for a single parent.
