MORNING ROUTINE


The way we begin our mornings can either make or break the rest of our day. If we wake up late and storm out of the house without taking a minute to sit down and breathe, chances are, your day is going to be stressful. This is why my New Year's resolution was to create the optimal morning routine so I can set myself up to feel confident, focused and at peace all day. Check out the 7 steps that energize my soul. 


//Feel free to take what works and drop what doesn't//


1. Wake up without checking my phone

It is a major distraction from the present moment, it gives me anxiety and it's highly addictive. Treat yourself to 20 minutes without contact from the outside world. I tried this for a week and immediately noticed a significant decline in my anxiety levels. Not to mention I found myself checking it less during the day.

 

2. Meditate for 10+ minutes

Meditation puts me in the zone. It calms my mind and helps me appreciate every little beautiful detail life has to offer. I aim for a minimum of ten minutes, but the session can range from 10-30 minutes. Longer meditation = less anxiety & more patience.

If you are new to meditation I would recommend the app INSIGHT TIMER (I know I mentioned to not use your phone in step #1, but you can choose what meditation you are doing the night before so you only have to press play in the AM #LifeHacks) The app provides guided meditations by instructors from all over the world- it has truly changed my practice.


3. Mention three things/people/events I am grateful for.

The beauty and science of gratitude is that when you demonstrate appreciation for what you have, life multiplies these situations where you feel appreciative. Once it becomes a habit, you will find yourself thanking life in random moments during your day. This makes life that much more enjoyable #promise


4. Mention three things I love about myself.

I make sure they are purely character traits, unless I make the connection between physical + mental. For example, instead of saying "I love my eyes" I rephrase it into"I love my eyes because they inspire strength in others".


5. I repeat one of three mantras depending on my mood:

"I am the future me"(days I feel like a BO$$)

"Today will be the best day of my life" (days I feel the love coming out of my pores)

"Everything in my life is purposefully set to ensure I am on the path of maximum growth" (days I feel intricately connected to everything that surrounds me)


6. I set the intention of doing something outside of my comfort zone.

Whether it be taking an alternate route to school, exploring a new café or speaking to a stranger, I need to ensure I am challenging myself.


7. Take three deep breathes and exhale saying "OM".

Why? This mantra vibrates on the same frequency as nature (432 Hz). I am metaphorically and literally synching myself with everything that surrounds and nurtures us. It also calms down my anxiety in case I had difficulties focusing during my meditation (It happens more than you think)


Success is prepared in the morning & enjoyed at night.
