How to get control of your day from the minute you wake up
I am going to talk about one of my favorite topics today … it’s all about MINDSET, I have been reading a lot on this subject lately and cannot wait to share with you. Like… you have much more control over your days than you might think!
As we head into the busy end-of-year holiday season, it is SO EASY to feel like your days run you, instead of you running them.
Have you ever had one of those days when you’ve felt incredibly busy … but then at night you look back and feel like you didn’t get anything done?
Where I’m going to show you ONE TRICK that can turn that around.
OK, are you ready to get tactical?
If you have a busy schedule, it can be tempting to wake up early, and as soon as you get up, start plowing through your to-do list as fast as possible. I personally understand this very well!
This is especially true if you have to get to work or the studio early, or you have young kids at home. You want to hit the ground running, so you don’t end up feeling behind!
But that doesn’t always work so well, does it?
It can leave you feeling frazzled and scattered, and even more stressed as the day goes on, because you’re constantly playing catch up!
That’s why one of the most important things you can do in the morning is take just a few minutes to set your main priority for the day. That allows you to keep your head clear and mind focused.
Yes, I’m talking about creating a morning routine … but a scaled-back routine that’s only about 5 minutes long.
I’m talking about just 5 minutes to focus on YOU, your priorities, self-care, and setting your intention for the day.
This means drinking a cup or two of water to start your day … take any vitamins or supplements that you normally take … and then spending a few minutes to meditate, journal, pray, or read, schedule your workout … or whatever works for YOU to start your day with a firm purpose and intention!
You could also move your body to get your lymphatic system revved up. This can include lightly bouncing on your feet and stretching to help rejuvenate your body and let it know it’s go time!
The most important thing with this routine is to do it with intention … because it’s YOUR time to set the tone for the rest of the day!
Be present and MINDFUL as you go through whatever is in your morning routine!
This means that when you start your day, you’re doing it in a PROactive way, instead of just REacting to the million things you have to get done that day.
