My Ink & Volt Planner has me start each week with a reflection. On a good Monday I can find the time to do it in the morning. Today I managed to get there before the end of day, which is still pretty good.

Plot out your perfect morning and make it happen one day this week.
Can you master this perfect routine? Practice makes perfect.
- Wake up early, before the kids, ideally 6am.
- I went to bed before 10.
- I have a glass of water, then coffee.
- I meditate for 20 minutes.
- I can read or write for 30 minutes.
- I have time to make my oldest’s lunch and empty the dishwasher.
- One of the kids wakes up and I have time to hang out with them a bit before the other wakes up.
I was shocked to realize how simple and attainable this was, I hadn’t realized I had been looking for a little space and quiet for myself in the mornings.
