Did you know that the first hour of the morning is crucial? How you spend it will determine your experience of the rest of your day.
How did you start your day today? When you woke up, what were the first words that came out of your mouth? Did you complain? Did you think about what wasn’t working in your life?
How you start your day is often how you live your life – Louise Hay
What do you do when you get into the car? Do you slam the door and growl about going to work, or do you bless the traffic on your journey?
What do you say when you first look in the bathroom mirror? What do you say when you take a shower? What do you say when you get dressed?
How do you leave your house for work? Do you just run out the door, or do you say something nice first?
If you are a busy mom or dad who needs to get the children ready for school, or if you have to get to work early, it’s important to give yourself some time to start your day off in the right way.
I would rather wake up earlier to have this extra time in the morning. Even if you give yourself only 10 or 15 minutes, this is absolutely essential. It’s your time for self-care.When you get up in the morning, it’s important to do a ritual that feels good to you and to say something to yourself that makes you feel good. Set in motion the best day possible for yourself. You don’t have to make these changes in your life all at once.
Just pick one ritual for the morning and start there. Then once you have the ritual down, pick another one and keep practicing. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Remember: the idea is to feel good.
Let’s affirm: Today I create a wonderful new day and a wonderful new future.
