YOU DECIDE EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN. YOU GET A SECOND CHANCE, EVERY SECOND
How many times have you got up on the wrong side of the bed? You know, with a grumpy mood early in the morning… Of course, you have. That too, many times. That is because many people experience less than awesome starts to their days. The alarm goes off, the snooze button is punched several times and somethings(not so pleasant..) get grumbled about it being too early. There is little excitement or anticipation about the new day ahead when the day starts off with this kind of grumpy negative emotion. But there is Good News!
The Good News!
If your day begins without much excitement, there is good news! You can easily transform your morning into a magical time that welcomes the potential of good things happening to you! The news gets even better. You don’t have to lose all that weight first. You don’t have to have life all figured out. No matter what is going on in your life right now, it is in your control to create a positive experience for yourself – today.
What is your morning ritual when you first wake up? Are you consciously setting aside a few minutes to create your day with vision and positive expectation? By taking just a few minutes every morning, you can set your mood, put yourself in the right frame of mind, and maximize your outcomes for the upcoming day. You could also remember what is most important to you, and consciously place those tasks at the top of your mental to-do list.
And now…DrumRoll please….. I present to you……
The Two Minute Morning Ritual to Start Your Day on a Positive Note:
By spending just two minutes in the morning can turn your day into a magical land of opportunity! Below is one idea that is fun, takes just a few minutes, and puts you back in the driver’s seat of your own life. Take a few days and try this exercise on for size. If it doesn’t fit, alter it or create your own morning ritual. The important thing is that you recognize your own ability to breathe, center, and decide for yourself how to begin your day.
1. Start by choosing a specific Goal or Direction
One of the first things you can do to get your morning started right is to focus on an attitude, direction, or goal that is meaningful to you. This helps you know both what you want to move away from in your life, and what you want to move toward. Being aware of what you want strengthens you as an individual and helps you feel good about your life.
2. Please Be Super Specific
As you focus on your life direction or goal, allow yourself to generate several creative action steps. What could you do today that would move you forward? What action could you take that would allow you to feel good about yourself? Instead of waking up and thinking, “I’m going to do better today,” “Today I won’t blow it,” or, “I will not binge eat today,” try something different. Choose an action that is specific, and that you already know you can accomplish. Don’t select the hardest, biggest or most impossible thing you can think of. Pick something small and achievable. Be kind and realistic with yourself.
3. Lets Get excited!
Get excited about the action that you chose for yourself. Use your imagination and bring a sense of fun into what you are going to achieve today. Be silly, adventurous, or playful. Take your two minutes and visualize yourself feeling good, being competent, or accomplishing your chosen specific action. What does it feel like to achieve this action? Breathe, relax, notice what it feels like in your body to be excited and filled with the expectation that you can have what you want.
Simply….That’s it! Spend a few minutes each morning improving the visual picture you want for yourself. See yourself fit, a confident leader in your own life, standing strong in your choices, and a happy self-motivator. Instead of starting your day in a grumpy, crappy mood, take a few minutes to center and get excited about all the wonderful potentials that lie in store for you today.
Another Drum-roll please…this ones for YOU!! Yes!! YOU!!!
….Now you’re ready to begin everyday of your life in a Positive way! Feeling awesome yet ?? 🙂
