Start Your Day Like a Rock Star




There are so many benefits of setting up a morning ritual. I started a morning routine after being “shoved” into it by my own coach, a few years back.  It wasn’t easy at first. I definitely resisted it. I wanted to tackle my projects right out of the gate. But she kindly pointed out that when I did it this way, I was a little frazzled and not as focused as I wanted to be or could be.  With practice and commitment on my part, I created a morning ritual that helps me feel more peaceful, focused, and kick-starts my day in the right direction.


Most of the most successful and happiest people have their own version of a morning ritual, so I thought you might like a blueprint!  Simply set aside 10 to 20 minutes a few mornings a week and then build on this when you are ready.


Here you go….


Get Your Water




Squeeze either a fresh lemon or a slice of ginger into a cup of water to add extra antioxidants and help your body process and remove any built-up toxins. This will also help to boost your hydration and overall energy level. Drink lots of water throughout the day, aiming for eight glasses and don’t forget to always add more if you exercise!



Find Your Spot




Find a place in your home that is comfortable, calls your name, and is relatively private. This is your special place. Make it cozy by adding a fluffy throw pillow, pictures of your favorite people, etc. Make it feel special!




Have a Journal





Buy yourself a lovely journal. I found one on Amazon, but if you have a local bookstore, you will have plenty to choose from. It doesn’t have to be fancy but should be something you can call your own.





Grateful Moments






I start with five things I am grateful for.  It can be a good night’s sleep, hearing the birds sing, my husband, my grand kids, getting a new client, etc.. There are just so many things to be grateful for!  💗







Now Plan Your Day




It doesn’t have to be a perfect plan, but instead, should be a simple outline.


For example:

I will work out today

I will remember to thank three  people for being who they are

Today I will do either a small meal prep or I will add 1 extra vegetable to my day



Meditate



This was definitely the hardest challenge for me, since I have a very busy mind. Because I knew this would be a point of struggle, I planned for it. I found a few apps that help to guide me through meditations. I


also use Spotify for meditation music or Insight Timer to help me stay on track with a guided meditation.  I allow for a total of five minutes. I close my eyes, breathe deeply and evenly, and let my mind clear. I try not to go forwards or backwards; instead, I attempt to stay present in the moment.



Add-On's


If time allows, pick a book that will not only enrich your mind, (get those cells moving and growing), but also one that can enrich your life and your heart. I just finished Notes of Hope by Anne Lamont and The Second Mountain by David Brooks. Both were excellent if you’re in search of something to start you off!


Now You Are Ready


Follow these simple guidelines and you will feel more focused since you now have an outline of how you’d like your day to unfold.  Even if nothing gets done in the way you want it to, you have set yourself up for a day of abundance and goodwill towards both yourself and others.
