With each new day there are new opportunities and a fresh chance to start over and do better. The way you spend those first few hours in the morning has a huge impact of how the remainder of your day will flow. The way you start your days sets the tone for your entire day. Which is why making over your morning is such an important thing to do as it really is about much more than simply those first few hours after you wake in the morning.
So is your morning anything like this… Let say you have set the alarm to wake you in time so you have ample time for exercise or morning meditation. Maybe you plan to squeeze in some much needed “me time”. You have every intention of getting up and doing whatever you’re setting out to do when you set the alarm in the first place.
Most mornings – even some mornings you manage to leap out bed and hit the pavement for your walk , or find a quiet place for that beneficial meditation or just have twenty minutes to start the day the way you prefer.
Then there are those other days when it is just too great an effort to wake up – let alone get up. You end up hitting the snooze button several times, or perhaps resort to turning off the alarm so you can get some more sleep!
On those days how does the rest of the day go for you?
Were you aware of how you felt throughout the day?
How productive were your mornings on the days you were able to get out of bed as soon as your alarm works you?
I wonder if you managed do all the things you set out to do?
How different were the days when you got straight out of bed compared to the days when you repeatedly hit the snooze button?
If you anything like me, the days you were able to get up as soon as the alarm sounded were more productive and flowed much more harmoniously that the other snooze button days?
I bet you accomplished what you have planned to do, too.
It seems the tone for the day is set first thing in the morning, as sleeping through the snooze button probably affected your entire day and not just the early morning hours
That’s what the old saying about getting up on the wrong side of the bed is about. Let’s make sure we get up on the right side and start our day off in a positive and productive way.
During the next seven days, I am going to guide you through the process of making over your morning. We now know this is an important task and one we need to become fully aware of and pay attention to. You will find yourself enjoying the your mornings a lot more, even though you alarm may be going off earlier than you wan it to And you may well find that the rest of the day will go much smoother.
