When you wake up tired and not in your best mood, mornings can often be experienced as a nonsensical groggy blur. Instead of rushing to work, you have the option of seizing a precious opportunity.
You can start to change your morning experience by doing a personal checking in. Each morning can be seized as a fresh opportunity, a new beginning full of energy.
Imagine that you can change the “movie” you wake up in. Instead of waking up into stress and rushing around, imagine that you can start the day doing something that invigorates and nourishes you. A gift from yourself to yourself.
This gift is to offer yourself a morning ritual where you can tune in, and experience spiritual refreshing moments that will set the tone for the day ahead: being present, calm and positive.
Here are 9 simple tips to create and setup a morning routine that will bring balance and nourishment to your soul.
1 – Wake Up Early (a little bit)
This is fundamental for establishing the routine, as centering yourself takes bit of time. So give yourself the best chance to setup a good morning ritual. In order to do this you will need to go to sleep a little earlier and also waking up a little earlier.
A good way to set this in motion is the incremental way. You don’t need to do it all in the first day. For instance you can try to wake up 1 minute early each day. You do small changes but consistently over time. It works (I have tried it).
By doing it the incremental way you might take longer to implement your routines but I assure you that they will stick.
