This is week 2 of the Glow Resolution Challenge 2017. I hope you had a good first week of making one small change this past week. Week 2, I want to talk about a very important part of your life - mornings. How often do I hear "I don't have time in the morning", "Mornings are rushed", "I'm not a morning person".
I understand this, but if you want to change one part of your life in becoming more healthy - IT'S YOUR MORNING ROUTINE!
Revamp and re-create your morning routine to make time not only for yourself but also to eat a good balanced breakfast to start your day feeling good, energized and ready for whatever the day might bring.
To be able to recreate your morning routine, you will have to wake up half hour or an hour earlier. Sounds daunting? Not so, if you go to bed an hour earlier. That is it. Go to bed earlier!
There are four points to consider:
- Have quiet/ alone/ "Me" time. Get connected to what is most important before the day demands from you.
- Create before you consume. Leave the emails, Facebook, phones alone, so you can first connect with what is important before you consume from the world that influence our day. This way you will have a better attitude and react more positive to life.
- Exercise or stretch. Best time to get your healthy routine a kickstart. Get it over and done with!
- Eat a good balanced breakfast before you go out the door.
When you start with a good morning routine you set yourself up to have a good attitude towards whatever you might face.
“The longer I love, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church....a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.”
