6 Healthy Morning Habits to Start Your DayPosted: August 17, 2021
My morning routine and habits are pretty solid and I wake up excited to get it done.
I am a huge believer that small habits form success and my clients can totally agree!
It is one of my favorite things to discuss with clients because it helps them achieve many of their goals, not just weight loss related goals.
The habits outlined below are habits that I have adapted from podcasts, books, and my own experience, and they work so well for me.
But here’s the thing though: NONE of these habits work…unless you do.
You are the one that has to implement these healthy habits every single day.
Okay, let’s get into it.
Sounds simple, but this is a tough one!
The one minute I use to check my phone always turns into an hour of me scrolling social media, answering emails and DMs. This always makes me feel rushed because it puts me in reaction mode and that doesn’t serve me.
Instead, fight the urge and leave it on the charger for another hour, trust me.
Try to enjoy your mornings (even if you have kids lol) and take some time to enjoy the way your pillow feels under your head and do some deep breaths.
Habit #2: I make the bed.
It helps you accomplish something first thing in the morning which sets the tone for the day.
I will also open the blinds and windows to allow some light and fresh air in – nothing like the smell of dewy mornings.
Habit #3: I journal.
This is so fun- can you believe I used to roll my eyes every time someone told me they journaled?
But THIS has been one of the most transformational habits I’ve ever implemented.
It helps get my mind clear and it puts me in such a positive mood after I’ve finished.
I will write about where I want to take my business, what I am grateful for, affirmations, ideas, visions, dreams, goals, etc.
It doesn’t really matter, just write! If you have something that’s stressing you out, then write about it – get it out of your head. You will feel so much better.
Also, if you have a thought that you just want to stop thinking, write it out and then write another thought you want to be thinking instead. Seeing it in front of you makes it stick so much more.
Habit #4: I read.
I read so much when I was younger – middle school & high school mostly. Then I stopped in college because I was busy studying and diving deep into all the information and did not read again until after I had my son.
When I launched my business, there was so much I did not know so I turned to books.
And now I try to read a book every 2 weeks because reading is a favorite hobby. I mostly read business, money and mindset books to help better me and educate myself in areas I need it.
So if you need book recommendations make sure to message me on Instagram because I have read ALOT.
Habit #5: I visualize.
I take a few minutes to visualize where I want my life to be in 1, 3, 5 or 10 years and how I want to feel that day. I set an intention for the day which gives me clear direction and a path of what tasks I need to take daily in order to achieve my long term goals.
Habit #6: I always do my skincare routine and get dressed.
My skincare routine is a sacred time for me. This is the time where I can go into the bathroom, shut the door and apply my serums, moisturizer and sunscreen. After that, I quickly do my hair and makeup but I always take my time with my skincare routine. I love taking care of myself and prioritizing what is important to me because it makes me feel good.
