Make Over Your Morning – Creating Morning Rituals to Support Your Success!

by

morningOne of the things I love about mornings is that each new day brings new opportunities and it’s a chance to start fresh and do better. It’s like a menu full of possibilities!

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 making over your morning is so important. It’s about much more than those first few hours.

I’m sure you’ve experienced this yourself. You set an early alarm to make sure you have time for exercise, meditation, or simply 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. 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. Then 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.

Think about how the rest of those days went. Did you notice a difference in how you felt? How much did you get done on the mornings when you got up with your first alarm? How did those days compare to the ones when you hit the snooze button over and over again?

If I had to take a guess, I’d say that the mornings when you got up as soon as the alarm went off went a lot smoother. I bet you accomplished what you had planned to do, too. Chances are that sleeping through the snooze button didn’t just affect your morning, but the entire rest of your day. You set the tone for how your day is going to go first thing in the morning. That’s what the old saying about getting up on the wrong side of the bed is about.

You have the creative power within you to start your day off in a positive and productive way.

[Video] Start Your Week Off With a Plan!

by

I wanted to share my recent Facebook Live video tip with you.

I recorded it from my Creative Café Time. It’s been so lovely here in Atlanta that I wanted to get some outdoor café time. One of my favorite things to do… and one of my best success habits… is getting out of my office and going to a café to work on my business.

I read something inspirational and journal and then the ideas and clarity start popping!

I also create a plan for the week and the day… watch this short video to see what I do…

I hope this inspires you to create your own Creative Café Time and plan your week and your day!
