Start with a Reliable Morning Routine
The way you start your morning influences your whole day. Hal Elrod, author of The Miracle Morning, states “By simply changing the way you wake up in the morning, you can transform your life, faster than you ever thought possible.”
Have you ever gotten up on the “wrong side of the bed” and wanted to start over? It’s not surprising. Your morning rituals affect the remainder of the day. Use your morning to empower yourself to be healthy, productive, creative, and calm.
Begin Your Day Feeling Empowered
Starting your day intentionally helps you feel a sense of control. Begin at the same time daily.
Create Healthy Habits
Divide your morning into blocks of time that include exercise, reflection, personal hygiene, and a healthy breakfast. Ensure your own self-care before your attention goes to anything or anyone else.
Make your lists and set goals for the day before any distractions. Review your calendar and upcoming appointments to prepare yourself for the day ahead. Proper time management keeps you on task and enhances productivity.
Creativity is cultivated through consistency. Journaling, reading and meditation foster new ideas. Innovations can be credited to unfailing morning habits.
Win at Tranquility
A well-planned morning creates calm that extends into your day. Without feeling rushed, you are more patient, leading to little acts of kindness throughout the day. Hold the door open for someone to let them go before you!
Keep in mind that your first step to a good morning is preparation the night before. Decide on your clothing in advance and plan a healthy breakfast. Be consistent with bedtime and sleep in a cool, dark room for a restful night of sleep. Write down everything you need to do and remember before you go to sleep.
