The way you start your day has a profound affect on your health, attitude, productivity, relationships - basically your entire life!
"If you don't have ten spare minutes to work on yourself every morning, then you don't have a life." Tony Robbins
Ever since I read The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod five years ago I have practiced a morning routine. The book is THAT convincing - and life changing, I highly recommend you get a copy, do the exercises and start living your one beautiful life to the fullest this New Year!
At first I followed the book's recommended morning routine exactly. Then I added some new practices (face exercises, meditation, rebounding) and dropped others (exercise - I feel I can give it my ALL later in the day).
I believe these are the non-negotiable components of a morning routine:
5) Inspirational reading
6) Goals for the day (baby steps!)
I spend 3-4 minutes on each of the above, and if I get up late I can all five steps in 10 minutes - serious! It's an abbreviated version of my 30 minute routine but it still puts me in a positive and productive frame of mind ready to tackle the day!
If you still need convincing about creating a morning routine, read celebrity morning rituals and what successful people do before breakfast.
Speaking of breakfast, I want to draw your attention to Arbonne's 30 Days to Healthy Living - this well researched, affordable and comprehensive program takes the guess work out of transforming your body, including detoxification, nutrition, supplements - everything you need to know in a simple, easy to follow formatted program.
