Can you begin each day in a ‘different way’ this ‘New Year’? The way you start your morning can affect your entire day. How would you like to significantly reduce stress and anxiety, and have a happier and more productive day?
Take a moment to reflect upon the beginning of your day; how do you begin? Do the kids screaming get you out of bed? Do you jump up out of bed in a rush? Do you hit snooze and
feel behind right from the start? If you do, I have some ideas that will help you begin your day in a way that makes you feel great.
I suggest taking a bit of time for yourself in the morning; a new approach – even 30 seconds will work. Before you jump out of bed take a bit of time to breathe deeply, reflect, and quietly contemplate life; your day.
Begin with ease, grace and quiet contemplation – this will set the tone for the day. When we begin from a conscious place – ‘meaning WE begin OUR day; our way’ – we do not allow the world to dictate how we move through the day. We start with a solid foundation when we slow it all down right from the start. This way the storms don’t shake us and bring us down to our knees. We have the power to move through the day with the ease and grace we began with.
A few of my daily practices are: I take a few minutes before I get out of bed to say to myself, “I create my day.” I repeat a few positively worded statements to motivate myself instead of jumping out of bed in a hurry. It creates a more peaceful day for me. I might do a little Reiki self-healing as I am waking up. On the ceiling of my bedroom I have a brightly coloured post-it note to remind me to ‘breathe deeply.”
Find your way to begin – a way that works best for you instead of hitting the snooze button.
Tip: teaching our children to begin the day in this way starts healthy habits for them too.
Begin the day in a new way.
A way that supports, nourishes and sends you off into the world
feeling strong, focussed and peaceful.
I wish you an abundant 2018 filled with much love, passion and adventure. As always I am here to support you in this life journey – and welcome your feedback.
