The alarm goes off and you hit snooze 18 times, getting more frustrated with each sound. You finally get up and when your feet hit the floor you start running. You are on default mode or autopilot as you run and do the things that must get done as quickly as possible, to get going. Maybe you stub your toe on the bed post, as you mindlessly rush and hurry. As you grab your coffee and take a sip while you are leaving the house to get in your car, you spill some on your shirt. You let out a verbally explicit word to the universe. You buckle up in the car and realize you left your keys on the counter. Your frustration level elevates as you run back to get them, as this is making you later and more stressed.
This is an example of a NON-mindful morning routine. You can almost feel the hurried constraint and pressure this kind of morning creates.
