How do you feel about mornings? Do you welcome each morning as another day for which to show gratitude and accomplish much; or do you groan, roll over, and wish the nights were longer? You may be a night person. 🙂
I love mornings. Each new day brings new opportunities and it’s a chance to start fresh and do better.
How you start your day, or more specifically how you spend those first few morning hours has a big impact on the rest of your day.
Think of it as setting the tone for your entire day. That’s why a morning makeover is so important. This is why we strive to create “Perfect Morning”.
Will it really be perfect? No.
Because it’s about much more than those first few hours of the day, our goal is for each morning to be as near perfect as possible for ourselves. Not for someone else.
What may be a perfect morning for you, may not work for me!
Example of How a Morning Routine Impacts Results
Let’s look at a common scenario. You set an early alarm to make sure you have time for exercise, meditation, or simply some much needed time for yourself. You intend to get up and do whatever you’re setting out to do when you set the alarm in the first place. Some mornings – hopefully, most mornings – you get up when the alarm chimes and go for that walk, do your meditation exercise, or read a book for twenty minutes.
Now, what happens when you veer off track? There are those days when you just can’t make yourself get up. You hit the snooze button multiple times, or turn the alarm off altogether and go back to sleep for another 15 or 30 minutes.
Think about how the rest of those days went. Did you notice a difference in how you felt? Were you able to do all the things you set out to do?
How would you compare the results you experienced in each of those two scenarios? Were there any significant differences in what you accomplished?
It’s a strong possibility that on the mornings when you got up as soon as the alarm went off, your morning went a lot smoother. You probably accomplished what you had planned to do.
On the other hand, sleeping through the snooze button didn’t just affect your morning, but your entire day. You set the tone for how your day is going to go first thing in the morning. It’s either going to be positive and productive or feeling rushed and frustrated.
Over the course of 15 days, my goal is to guide you through the process of making over your morning and creating the perfect morning for you. Not only will your mornings be more enjoyable, but it will make the entire rest of your day go much more smoothly.
