Do you have a morning routine?
This routine can determine how your whole day plays out. If you wake up late because you also slept late, a whole day feels like half. The tendency is to procrastinate or become a night owl to maintain productivity.
But since we do have different jobs and lifestyles, different things work for everyone. The key is to start our day with INTENTION and it all starts with awareness.
I share this practice with my athlete clients. They start the first 30 minutes of their day observing how they feel upon waking up.
Do I feel excited about today?
Am I nervous?
Is there a feeling of agitation or enthusiasm?
Whatever the feeling is, ask WHY? Why do I feel this way?
If they are anxious about training, I ask them to determine which skills are needed for it.
“What skill do I want to demonstrate or continue to work on today?”
Remember to ask questions to get answers. Be consistent.
This little habit can help you assess your emotions whether it's coming from a space of lack or abundance. Before irritation becomes agitation or feeling weak becomes feeling exhausted, ask yourself what can be done.
If you want to experience the difference between good and the best, strive to be better every single day.
