Morning Rituals are one of those things that ends up changing your life. That is not an understatement or an exaggeration. Mornings are the MOST important part of the day – it’s when you set the tone for how your day will go. You need to start each one with intention and purpose if you want to:
a) get the most out of your day
b) be high vibe AF
You know that saying "it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish?" I'm calling BULLSHIT. Hear me out. It’s been my experience that if I start my day with that wishy washy attitude of, "we will see” or “I don't know if I can get it all done," I NEVER FINISH whatever it was that I started. That then leads to feeling like crap, followed by that guilt thing, and then I start the cycle all over again.
Well I DON’T want that for you.
I get it. I never use to be a morning person either. I would hit snooze 8 zillion times and would get up at the last possible second. I would then drag my booty out of bed feeling rushed, scattered and holding a purely chaotic energy. That set the tone for my entire day and that's exactly how my day went — rushed, scattered, and all over the place.
Don't give me that whole, "I'm not a morning person BS." We were all morning people at one time – we all used to keep our parents from getting to sleep in (which is why they are now morning people haha).
Start with this:
- Set an intention for the day – how do you want to feel?
- Get up when your alarm goes off (I can feel you rolling your eyes BTW)
- Start your day with the energy you want to feel throughout the day
- Stop making excuses
MY TIPS: I set my intention while still laying in bed. I decide what I want out of the day and after my mediation, I pick three words I choose to feel for the next 24 hours and remind myself of those words throughout the day.
What’s your intention for today?
