good morning

It’s a lot easier to have a great day if you choose to make your morning great. What you do immediately upon waking sets the tone for the rest of the day.

It’s easy to fall into bad habits like checking email and social media before you even get out of bed. But that lets the outside world dictate your mood, which sucks!

Take the time to set your mood first thing in the morning. You wouldn’t leave the house without brushing your teeth, so why not clean up your vibration before encountering outside reality? The world can only reflect what you’re projecting.

My current plan (which I’ve been practicing for precisely one day) is this:

As soon as I get out of bed, I start writing my daily 1000 words. I use the prompts “I’m so grateful,” “Wouldn’t it be nice…?” “I love it when,” and “Dear Jessica…,” a letter from my higher self.

Choosing thoughts of gratitude first thing in the morning boosts my mood and gets me excited about life!

Next, I do my daily ritual. Then I list 60 things I love about my life while doing a little hoop dance.

Spending the first hour of my day peacefully selecting the thoughts I want to think changes the trajectory of my whole day. I’m so excited to be establishing new patterns!

    yes! i’m in total agreement! my alarm is a really pretty song that eases me awake instead of one of those ones that sounds like a bomb is going off. i also wake up an hour earlier than i need to, just so i can enjoy some coffee (& a bowl!) & ease into my day. instead of just having to jump up & scramble!

    Sara, great idea about the alarm. Do you have it on your phone?

    Yeah! I set my phone alarm to Weird Fishes by Radiohead which sounds like the ocean but is still loud enough that I hear it.

    Perfect! Thanks for the idea!
