I’m going to be really transparent with you right now. Over these past few weeks, I’ve fallen out of my usual routines. And let me tell you, I’ve felt it.
You know me, my routines quite literally keep me going day in and day out. Not only as a busy entrepreneur, but as a human in general. One of my favorite affirmations in my self-love card deck is “My routines are little promises I make daily to put myself first.”
When we stick to the things we set out to do, we signal to our hearts and minds that we matter and that what we need is important. So, I’ve had to do the work lately to get back to this and get back to taking care of myself in a way that sets me up for success, and that starts in the mornings!
I know, I know everyone says breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I’m here to drive home that it really is, for multiple reasons. And as someone who likes to keep it light, but impactful, I enjoy kicking the day off with a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios.
Honey Nut Cheerios are made with whole-grain oats and a touch of real golden honey. So, they taste delicious and can help lower cholesterol as part of a heart-healthy diet.* *Three grams of soluble fiber daily from whole grain oat foods, like Cheerios cereal, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Honey Nut Cheerios and other specially marked Cheerios varieties provide 0.75 grams per serving.
When I kick my day off with a bowl of heart-healthy Cheerios, I’m likely to make better choices throughout the day. The first already being to make sure I’m nourished as I dive into all that I have planned.
Next, because I’ve given my body the necessary fuel, I’m able to feel more energized and open to making more creative decisions.
I allowed myself to run on E recently, and I didn’t like the results at all. When I take the time to indulge in a slow, intentional start to my day with a bowl of Cheerios topped off with some almond milk, I’m actually pouring into myself. Filling up that tank so I don’t just let the day get the best of me, and instead pull the best that the day has to offer.
