Managing your Morning Routine
Do you currently have a morning routine?
A few weeks back, I had a post on morning routines and thought it may add some value to share a few morning routines with you.
How you start your morning is important because it sets the tone for the rest of your day.
Having an early start at 5 am gives you a calm and quiet space to really get centered. Take this time and make it your power hour.
There are a few ways depending on your energy and whether you are a jump up and go kind of person or an easing it into the day kind of person.
My perfect morning routine when it happens starts at 5 am, I take a shower, it’s the most effective way to wake up and it does save a lot of time. Then off to my quiet space where I light one of my beautiful fragranced candles and make a cup of herbal tea. This is my time to meditate and gain direction and inspiration, a very spiritual time. I then do my exercises at 6:00 am. This allows me to have the most amazing morning before the day kicks in. At 7:00 am, I get myself and the family ready and the day begins.
If you’re a get up and go kind of person, you may decide on a more vigorous morning. Get up at 5:00 am and take a 3-minute cold shower. Have a cup of hot water with lemon and then dedicate 30 minutes of vigorous dancing, push-ups, skipping and on the spot walking. Move your body, make the bed, dress and eat. A great way to kick-start your morning.
5 Tips to set the tone for a great day:
- Create at least one golden moment for your day (smile at a stranger, give the gift of service, create a positive touch point.)
- Use positive language
- Choose your attitude
- Try something new
- Have a laugh
