It’s Episode 2 of the Make Light Show, friends, and I’ve been thinking a lot about ritual and routine — specifically, that routine is a privilege, and that infusing routine and ritual in our lives is how we can feel safer, more efficient, more effective and more productive. So today, join me as I share my morning routine, and share tips and tricks with how to infuse your life with more routine and ritual.

In this episode:

  • How to use journaling as a way to clear your mind, including the three questions to ask yourself every morning to add purpose and meaning to your day.

  • The reason why making your bed in the morning can be one of the most fulfilling things you do each day.

  • Reference to Morning Pages, as espoused by Julia Cameron, in her book The Artist’s Way.

  • Reference to the wise words of Jim Kwik, as he shares his morning ritual in this video.

  • A couple of favourite podcasts for inspiring your morning commute: The Science of Happiness, TED Talks Daily
