My Daily Routine

In a perfect world, I always do these things or at least a few of them everyday.

My Daily Routine in the Life of a Chronic Pain Warrior

My daily routine starts with The Miracle Morning.

Hal Elrod's program of Life S.A.V.E.R.S.

S - Silence (Meditation - I use the Headspace App)
A - Affirmation (He has some great ones in the book and on his website)
V - Visualization (Right now I'm focused on visualizing my daily routine since it has been so out of whack with weird events)
E - Exercise (Yoga or Dog Walking)
R - Reading (I'm reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin atm)
S - Scribing (Journaling. I'm a major fan of the bullet journal)

Then I fix breakfast which is the same thing every day unless I've got to get out the door. Doing the same thing for breakfast cuts down on decision fatigue. 2 eggs, 2 pieces of paleo bacon, and a large handful of frozen beans, cauliflower rice, etc.

The time between breakfast and lunch is reserved for blogging (which is now being conducted off-site because I can't seem to focus at home), doctor's appointments, physical therapy, ladies day, or if it's a high pain day, chilling in front of the TV doing Xbox or Netflix.

Lunch is usually paleo leftovers from the night before.

Lunch to dinner is spent much in the same way as my early day except I tend to do chores in the afternoon like laundry. I do try to get in some time with my hobbies like sewing because it keeps me moving around. I think moving around most of the day is key to keeping my pain low.

Dinner is usually something paleo and lately, it's been all sheet pan dinners, but hey, at least I'm cooking???

After dinner is snuggles with my husband either watching TV or playing XBox.

At nine, I take an Epsom salt bath if it's been a high activity day. I take my nighttime medicine and supplements to help me sleep and snuggle down into the bed. I'm usually guilty of staying up too late to read after we are supposed to be winding down but I love being transported away by a good story.
