Seven Secrets to a Thriving Life!

Secret Two, Part One

My morning time is soulfood.
How I start my day is important.

Morning Time

Start the day with intention by taking some morning time rather than just letting the day happen. Begin your day in an empowering self-directed way that only takes a few minutes to do.

This super simple practice is very deliberate and impacts everything you do after this time.  The more overwhelmed, busy, or stressed out you feel, the more valuable this practice will be for you.

Like Evening Wind-Down-Time, this tip is at the beginning of our time together as you need to have some space and pause for yourself when you are creating shifts in your life. No matter how big or small they are.

The Evening Wind Down Time and the Morning Time will support you during all our days together and ongoing.

This simple practice is often overlooked when morning routines or practices are discussed, but it sets the foundation for morning practices to happen successfully.

Most morning tips are all about packing as much as possible into an early morning routine. But that is not how we begin!

It is almost impossible to add activities into your morning when you already feel over-busy. So, don’t. Begin right here with this simple practice. It plants the seed.

Taking this time allows you to arrive into the day fully, and taking this time will enable you to come into an awakened state more naturally and with intention.

When you take time for yourself, you start the ritual of caring for your soul.

How To:
  • Take 3 to 5 minutes of pause each morning before you begin doing tasks or anything significant. You choose how much time to invest in it, but start with at least 3 minutes!
  • Take this time for yourself and only you. (If you want to add in connected morning time, do it after your 3 to 5 minutes.)
  • What you do during your morning time is not the most critical aspect. What matters is that it feels good for you, so that you want to do it again. And again. It can range from drinking a glass of water to having tea or coffee to stillness to gentle movement to journaling or more. We simply start small and just begin—day by day

  • Remember, you can set a minimum here too. For example: “I will spend 5 minutes in morning time with a minimum of 3 minutes.”

  • Know that each day and deliberate practice supports the other.

  • Intention and Committment: Setting aIt is as simple as asking yourself: what you want to get out of the program. What’s your intention? Click here for an Intentions Worksheet.

  • Consider tracking what you do – record your progress. This offers you a tool for self-accountability. A tracker gives you data about the actions you take. I find that data like this can be helpful in evaluating, assessing, and readjusting!  To do this, you can create your tracker in a notebook, use an app, or another method.  Click here for a few different styles of trackers: Tracker 1, Tracker 2, Tracker 3

  • Also, reflect on what thoughts or things are getting in the way. Becoming aware of what we are not aware of is a game changer!  I have a practice sheet for you related to this. Click here for Reflect and Evual Sheet

  • Know that the foundation of making shifts-even tiny ones that matter is your mindset. Not willpower. So, spending time with mindset work creates a solid foundation for your envisioned life and wellness. AND in a way that feels good and works for you!  Creating wellness is rooted in your beliefs, thoughts, and stories you have about yourself. Don’t worry; I’ve sprinkled a bit into this program!
