Transform Your Day: A Mindful Morning Routine for Productivity, Confidence, and Purposeful Living
How do you start your day? Pressing the pause button on your alarm clock? Jumping out of bed, rush into the shower, no time for breakfast? Oh wait, you more than likely start your morning reaching for your phone first so that you may check on the "all important" email, that triggers your anxiety.
All that the above does is set you up to have a day filled with pauses and deadlines not met. You rush from one meeting to the next, never quite completing the task at hand.
The split second of a thought to start your day slower sets off alarm bells and triggers fear to the level of fight-flight-freeze. You live every day with danger at your door believing that it can be no different.
You are right, your belief will create that reality for you.
BUT should you decide that you might want to change that belief, a mindful, slower start to your day will lead to:
• Higher productivity.
• Increased focus.
• Decrease in stress levels - decrease in illnesses
• Higher energy levels - direct result of permanent fight-flight response activation.
•Lower cortisol levels - direct link to stress and dis-ease
• Better sleep patterns.
• Mindful creation.
• More creativity - thinking outside the box and finding solutions.
• Better food digestion.
Start your morning an hour earlier. Allow yourself to fully awake before you jump out of bed. Have gratitude for the day ahead. Decide with what intention you want to experience the day. Allow time to be quiet and follow your breath, slow and deep into your belly and out. Break your fasting with a healthy meal and time to enjoy it.
DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PHONE - all you will do is busy your mind on an mail you will do nothing about until you get to the office. You are wasting time by worrying and replaying your internal story.
Are you ready to be more productive, confident, focus driven, a purposeful creator, and living your best life? Or will you wait until your body "decides" for you when your immune system is depleted?
