What do you start your day with each morning?
>Puppy snuggles because they make my heart happy and once the day gets going, I don’t always have a chance to stop and snuggle them when they want it.
>Journaling to clear my mind and get my creativity flowing. You can’t expect to control your thoughts when you don’t ever sort through them. That’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
>Visualization to keep my reality matching my dreams and to make sure the universe and I are on the same page about my desires. Because if you’re not clear about what you want, you’ll never get more.
>Reading something that makes me smile and sparks something deep within me. I don’t always spend a lot of time on this because I don’t need to. I read until I feel satisfied. And it’s rarely from the same book each day.
>Yoga and meditation breathing to get in touch with my body. To connect my breathing to my muscles. I do it in front of the mirror before I get dressed and become comfortable in my skin as I get glances of my body doing such beautiful poses.
>Feet in the grass, sun on the skin to get grounded and feel alive. There is something indescribable about the calming effect bare feet in the grass can have on your soul.
I don’t do these things just to check them off the list. I don’t do them because someone told me I should. I don’t only do them when it’s convenient either.
I do these things every single morning. No matter where I am in the world, they happen (except for the puppies, that can’t happen when I’m not home).
And the most important thing is, there is very clear intention of why. There is a deeply rooted purpose behind each of them and they truly make my days be MINE. The energy is mine to create and control from that point forward.
Doing your morning routine just for the sake of doing it and crossing it off the list isn’t the point. Do it because you know it will provide you the predictable result you are searching for!
And most importantly DO IT FOR YOU. Mold your routines to be something that truly fuels your soul in the unique way that YOU need it.
