Last month I wrote that I was working on the habit of dressing in “street clothes” before I went downstairs in the mornings for MSQT (morning solitude and quiet time). I did most mornings – primarily motivated by my aim to walk before the temperature climbed above 90°F, which, unfortunately, happened at least 21 days this month!
Several side benefits of my morning walks:
- a few more mornings at Zeke’s (coffee shop) …
- chance to enjoy more of the season’s colors displayed by the flowers …
- more audible books read…
- several when I get roun tuit items on my “to do” lists are now “ta da done!”
I think this habit is a good one to continue. Joining Juliann and friends for this month’s One Little Word share.

I really should take this idea and incorporate it into my morning. I am a pj lounger for a couple of hours in the morning while I sip coffee, eat breakfast, and putter with a few small tasks. I would be more productive getting dressed I think!
Sounds like this is working out very well for you!
Wow, great habit … and really great side benefits, too!
The habit that’s changed my life most . . . is getting up right away when my alarm goes off in the morning. (Early. Every day.) Now . . . I need to work on the “street clothes” thing! 🙂
I’ve been trying to do the same thing, and it’s also helping me accomplish more also. Here’s to gettin’ up and gettin’ goin’!
I should insist on evening walks. I could never get out for morning walks until we had our beloved Huck dog. the nights are so lovely right now, I love them. Fireman gets out for a morning paddle often. I just can’t get out of bed right now. But I’m hopeful August will be different
Hooray for a successful change!
That is a great habit, and avoiding the heat is a great motivator-also there’s coffee-very key for first thing in the morning!
