I have tried many morning routines, and this is what has been working for me lately. It starts my day off positively and has kept me in a better mood throughout the day. I usually dread going to work and am slumped all day. Lately, I have been alert, focused, and more ready to take on stress.
Wake up early: 6:30am, to be exact. This gives me a little over two hours to start my morning. The best part about this is I love having a few minutes in bed before I get up. I slowly wake up, stretch, contemplate my morning, maybe regret going to bed late, and have a sense of ease. Urgency in the morning is not my thing. Then I have plenty of time to do the list below, make breakfast, get ready (and be that girl), and not rush to jump on the subway.
Manifestation/Visualization: After I get up, I get on my yoga mat and stretch. I do a little yoga to wake up the body, usually down dog, baby cobra, cat/cow, and child's pose. I then grab my meditation pillow and sit in front of my 2022 Manifestation board. I soak it all in and speak affirmations to myself.
High Vibration Positive Music: As I get dressed for the day, I put on high vibration positive music in the background. This allows me to concentrate on getting ready with some background music. Listening to hip-hop music or a podcast like I usually do has me focusing on the words and knocks me out of being focused and calm. The high vibration, I'm sure, sets the tone of my day subconsciously.
