Hello, Happy New Year!!! I Hope you had a wonderful New Year, mine was a quiet evening at home watching Hallmark movies 🙂
Can you believe it? This is not just a new year but also a new decade, WOW! I wanted in my first 2020 blog post, to share with you the one thing that I learned from the past decade that has created magick in my every day, and that’s – the way I start my day.
You know what? I learned that you do have a say so in how your day unfolds, and you do have a say so in how you are willing to feel. Every day you have the choice, you can start your day in a way that will uplift you, motivate you, inspire you, support you, fill you with joy…Of course sometimes life just happens, and then you get to decide how you handle it.
I didn’t always know this. I used to get up and first thing turn on the TV and listen to the news while everything from the previous day and before, was playing over and over again in my head. What someone said or did, what was on my to do list, the meeting I didn’t want to go to. Look at emails and social media. My day was up and running from the first second in the morning. I felt stressed, overwhelmed and upset, right from the start of the day, and my day mostly followed in that way.
My morning routine now starts very different, no news, no emails, no social media, no thinking of anything that upsets me, that’s my rule. First thing in the morning is my precious, cherished – time for me. I am present to me. I give love to me. I write in my journal and I set the tone of what I expect today. And I learned this from Pam Grout, every morning I declare that something wonderful, magical, awesome is happening for me today. And amazingly, every day something awesome happens.
Here are my three simple steps that will supercharge your day:
1 – Put a smile on your face as soon as you wake. A smile tricks your brain into happiness.
2 – Say three loving words to yourself. I love me. I am great. I am divine. I believe in myself. I am good. I am courageous…Say any three words that will make you feel good. If you can’t say three, then start with one word and go from there.
3 – Declare that you’re having an amazing day today and everything is working out perfect for you. Think of how you want to feel, and envision how the day will unfold. If you have a meeting scheduled at work, see yourself leaving the meeting smiling and happy because everything went great.
And yes, I know I said 3, but for me journal writing is a non-negotiable super power, so I’m including it.
4 – Write it down. Writing down your intention/vision/feelings packs a lot of power.
So here you have it, my 3 simple steps I do every morning that supercharges my days.
It’s January, in a brand new year and brand new decade. Time to start something new. Make time for you. Set the tone, place the intention, envision it, feel it, write it, and –
Supercharge your day.
I’d love to hear from you.
