How you start your morning can influence how your day goes. You have the power to help shape the way your mind thinks. You can turn your reality into peace or chaos through the information you feed your brain. Sometimes, life does not go as you plan but you can make the choice on how you let it effect your overall being. The best time to work on your mind is in the morning before anything happens. Shape how your day will be. Here are 3 tasks I incorporate into my morning routine that boost my day in a positive direction.
1. Giving Thanks.
This is one of the easiest and maybe the most underrated form of habits that will help improve your way of thinking on life. When I look over my life in the mornings and give thanks and appreciation for what I do have including my family, my morning becomes bright and joyful. Don’t forget with coffee, tea, or your favorite morning drink.
Every morning the thankful list gets longer and longer. There is a certain level of peace and contentment that comes with taking a few moments out of my day and realizing how blessed I am. If you ever find yourself thinking about what is going wrong in your life, stop and take that time to think about what is and has gone right in your life.
2. Make a to do list.
This helps you run the day instead of the day running you. I love making to do lists. By accomplishing the tasks on the list, I feel like I have conquered the day. I try not to write long lists on day to day basis (I take a look at what I need to accomplish at the beginning of the month and than break it up into daily tasks) so I will not spread myself thin and risk developing stress.
Exercise has been known to release happy feelings. Dancing is one form of exercise that can be quite fun. Music has a way of uplifting me. I love how I am able to lose myself in the music and words of the song. I simply turn on my favorites upbeat songs and move to the beat. I do not try to have a certain rhythm (I am one who you would say, “Have two left feet lol”), I just move with the music and sing along with the words that I do know lol and I feel a sense of freedom and happiness at the same time.
Then, I am ready to tackle the day.
These are 3 simple ways that I incorporate into my morning routine to boost my day into a positive direction.
