The Miracle Morning
Have you ever had one of those mornings where you felt rushed, frazzled, and frustrated?
How about the morning when the bed feels so good that you just can’t seem to get up and out of it?
I know I have.
If the morning is stressful, the day just seems to follow.
How did you wake up this morning?
How you awaken each day dramatically affects your success in every single area of your life. If you want to transform your life faster than you ever imagined possible, start by having a Miracle Morning!
What is a Miracle Morning, you ask?
It’s waking up early and going through an intentional self-care routine that provides relaxation, energy, and productivity all before the day even begins.
Hal Elrod, the author of The Miracle Morning, is an impressive man. After being declared dead for six full minutes following a car crash, he was revived in the air, and then stayed in a coma for several days. After waking up, he was told he would never walk again, but miraculously he healed. Then with even more ups and downs in his rollercoaster life, he developed the miracle morning routine.
He said, “Remember, the moment you accept total responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you claim the power to change anything in your life.”
Hal studied the best of the best in conscious self-care practices and found six to be the most powerful, especially when they were bundled together. He calls them the Life S.A.V.E.R.S. He makes it clear that to become successful you have to dedicate time to personal development each day; he also gives us the six-step routine to create and shape that time.
Whether you do 6 minutes or 60 minutes a day, do one, all six, or any combination of the practices that is right for you. It will be like pumping Wholistic Health and Wellness fuel into yourself!
Mornings are an opportunity to start anew–a new day, a new page, and you get to set the tone. Self-care practices increase your health and wellness body, mind, heart, and spirit.
And since that kind of energy is contagious, you will be spreading goodness into the world too. Not a bad way to start the day and make a difference for the better in this world of ours. Here are the six steps to the Miracle Morning:
The idea is to quiet the mind, block out the chatter, and start the day with calm and loving thoughts. Meditation. Prayer. Breathing.
Encouraging words to tell yourself to achieve your goals, overcome fears, be healthy and happy and live out your purpose.
Imagine yourself doing each thing step-by-step that you need to do to accomplish your goals. Then imagine what it will feel like when you succeed.
It doesn’t have to be power lifting or long-distance running. Just do something for a few moments to get the blood and oxygen flowing to the brain.
Fill your brain with positive thoughts and ideas toward self-improvement. Absorb the knowledge of people who have accomplished the things you want to do.
Writing or journaling is a great way to process your thoughts and reflect on your life. It will help you become more self-aware and more articulate.
These daily rituals allow us to pause, contemplate, concentrate, and celebrate!
