Ever feel like your morning routine is as exciting as mowing the lawn? Different day, but the same routine experience?
Would you believe that shifting your morning routine could more than double your productivity at work, increase the love you feel in your life, and make you a way nicer and happier person than you are today? Yeah, hard to believe something so small could impact your life in such huge ways!
But it’s true. If you’re looking to change your life, start here, with the way you start your day. On this episode I will walk you through five things you need to start caring about in your morning. And as a bonus I’ll be sharing with you the morning routine that has me rocking out at life.
Or do you wake up feeling like you are already behind? Do you feel good about how you start your day? Do you have a morning routine? Like most of us, there is room for improvement in areas of growth and becoming the best version of ourselves. Listen to this podcast episode or read below for life-aligning tips on a morning routine that best serves you!
Start with the end in mind and ask yourself, “Do you want to feel appreciative? Productive? Grateful? In control of your day?” Whether your goal is to be joyful, productive, grateful, or more, know your intention.
For example, if joy is my choice, then my everyday habit of scrolling on my phone when I get out of bed will probably not serve me with joy. So scrolling on my phone is not compatible with feelings of happiness or enjoyment. No one ever rolls out of bed, checks their Facebook or LinkedIn, and says, “Wow, I feel amazing and so joyful right now!”
Grab a pen and paper and write out specific actions and thoughts that need to shift. It looks like this: “I want to start my day with joy. Therefore I need to stop checking my phone and doomscrolling first thing in the morning. And I need to change my mindset that I need my phone first thing in the morning!”
What do I need to change, and what am I shifting toward? If I’m seeking joy for my day, I think about what brings joy and replace actions that do not bring joy with activities that do! If yoga brings me joy, then that’s what I will start with to be in that state of mind. When I’m in a state of joy, I’m ready to serve myself, my family, and my clients. Take note of those thoughts and actions not serving you and turn them into thoughts and actions that help you!
NOTE TO SELF: THIS WILL NOT BE EASY! Your body will fight you on this. There will be a hundred excuses for you not to move toward your new goal. Changing your programming is never easy, but you, my friend, are worth it! Think of how much more clear-headed, focused and loving you will be with your morning routine in your mind. You are changing an old belief system with your thoughts and actions. Shift away from those beliefs, thoughts, actions no longer serving you!
After a few weeks, what do you notice? Am I observing growth? Think about your beliefs and when a belief is no longer serving you, intentionally change that story.
Let me share with you my morning routine! It shifts and evolves, as I shift and evolve. My current morning routine is:
