I mentioned a few days ago that I was following Abundant Mama's 10 day "Rise & Shine" challenge. Since good mornings have a lot to do with my goals this month, I wanted to share the three biggest concepts I took away from the challenge.
Set a daily intention: The idea that really resonated with me about setting a daily intention is that it changes every day. You focus on what you need out of you morning each day--some days I need that time in the morning to write. Some days I need it to exercise. Some days, I just need to rest. The important part is that you give yourself what you need.
Focus on nightly bedtime rituals: Find something that relaxes you and do it every night. There is no right answer here, Maybe it's writing a to-do list, meditating, doing yoga, or reading. The key is to not overwhelm yourself with it, just to find what works for you.
Make morning rituals: Even though your daily intention may change, there should be something you do first thing every morning that helps you start your day fresh and happy. For me, it's my lemon water. I love that first drink of cold water.
A penny for your thoughts: what do you do to to make your mornings better? What are your goals for September?
