The Ultimate Way to Start Your Day with Intention

⁣⁣⁣It took me far too long to realize the importance of a solid morning routine, but I am certainly glad I finally did.
⁣⁣⁣
Before I brush my teeth⁣⁣⁣.
Before I eat breakfast⁣⁣.
Before I take my daughter to school⁣⁣⁣ (or get her ready for online classes).
Before I check my emails⁣⁣⁣.
⁣⁣⁣
But obviously after I potty, I do these 5 rituals:
⁣⁣⁣
Gratitude: I say 5 things I am grateful for while holding my hand to my heart. You can say these things out loud or to yourself, whichever you prefer.⁣⁣
Affirmations: I say my positive daily affirmations out loud while looking at myself in the mirror. ⁣To say them, hear them, and see myself definitely helps raise my vibrations.
Meditation: I do 15 minutes of stillness and silence along with my breath-work. I quite the noise and bring my attention inward. ⁣⁣⁣
Stretch: I take anywhere from 10-30 minutes for this. I really stretch. It’s important to get your body moving and your blood flowing, get that energy going.⁣⁣⁣
Journal: I practice intentional journaling. I review the previous day, wins and losses, as well as my intentions for the day ahead. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
These five simple things have drastically transformed my days and my mindset. I’m able to better deal with things as they come and from a more mindful place. I feel more relaxed, more balanced.
⁣⁣⁣
After I drop off my daughter or get her situated with her classes; I also read for about 30 minutes while enjoying my morning tea. I do enjoy non-fiction books, but this time is specifically reserved for personal development.⁣⁣⁣ Then I hit the gym for my morning workout or get in a little yoga flow/at home workout if they are closed.
