The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Finding time is a wonderful event. So, why not celebrate it with special time for yourself at the start of the day? A morning ritual offers a chance to celebrate your accomplishments and just being YOU, and gives you a reliable energy boost, first thing, each and every day.
Today I’m extending our exploration of morning rituals with a few tips for creating a most enticing treat for yourself as you begin each new day:
Tip #1: Create a heart-felt intention to energize your ritual each morning.
What a straightforward way to bring happiness into your day! Tune in, and open your morning ritual by inviting yourself to express what activity (or lack of activity) would feel most welcome.
Speaking your intention aloud helps attune you to your feelings and to the sense of ease you experience in your body. As you close up your ritual, validate that you have given yourself this gift because you care about yourself. On some level, you are always listening to yourself. Kind words are always welcome.
Tip #2: Plant the seeds for a fulfilling morning ritual the night before.
As you drift off to sleep, you are especially receptive to positive suggestions. So envision fully immersing yourself in the pleasure of your upcoming morning ritual the evening beforehand. Allow the pleasure to add a few more rays of brightness to the day you are ending. You’ll awaken from sleep more refreshed and prepared for your special time.
Tip #3: Let your ritual honor your essential self.
What makes you unique? Do you follow a path of intention that guides you when challenges arise? Rituals can be opportunities to turn an appreciative eye inward. Ask yourself meaningful questions, and allow any answers or images to arise intuitively. You may be surprised by what pops up!
Notice what happens when you actively validate who you are. In fact, consider spending a few minutes in front of the mirror. What do you need to hear today? Tell yourself, and take it in.
