What comes to your mind when you wake up in the morning? Is it pretty much the same thing day in and day out? Related to your routine, but with layers of good and bad things that are ever changing? Things that come with more or less weight? Things that are energizing, or that can be draining? Things that worry you or that may give you hope?
Whatever is going on in your life, consider that you have some control; control of yourself and of your behavior. So, take notice of how you feel and of what you’re thinking about when you wake up. Maybe set your alarm 5 or 10 minutes early. The point should be clear. Don’t get swept up by your thoughts when you wake. Take control of them.
Try starting the morning with a smile, and the statement, I’m lucky to be alive. Simple, right? Next, just take a few, nice, deep breaths, while checking in with your body to see how you’re feeling. You could even then stand and take a minute or two stretching your arms and legs.
I assure you, this routine will go a long way for your well being. Hope it helps.
