Your morning routine is a ritual by which you set yourself to have a successful day and gradually change your life for the better from the inside out. With a morning routine, you tune in with your inner self, you align with your goals, and you choose the tone and tune by which your day will go.

Your Morning Routine starts the previous evening at bedtime. Plan your day before you go to sleep. Allow enough time for rest and play. Overcrowding your day with work can result in frustration and disappointment. Visualise yourself achieving one desired goal, for the day or for your life, during the five minutes just before falling asleep.

For a successful morning routine master your bedtime routine. Go to bed early between 9–10.30 pm. Sleep is vital for optimal health and well-being. Sleep helps the body be ready for a new day.

With sleep, you gain enhanced social and emotional intelligence. A study in the Journal of Sleep Research considered people’s responses to emotional stimuli. It was conclusive that a person’s emotional empathy is less when they do not get the amount of sleep needed. Sleep promotes optimal mental health. Studies have shown that there is a link between lack of sleep and depression.

Sufficient sleep lowers inflammation risk. There is also a link between lack of sleep and the increase of inflammation in the body in the world Journal of Gastroenterology a study showed that sleep deprivation could contribute to several diseases caused by inflammation. Enough sleep will give you a stronger immune system. As sleep helps the body repair, regenerate, and recover our immune system benefits considerably from a sound sleep.

Morning Routine

Step 1 Write Down Your Dreams

Keep a journal on your bedside table and use it to write down your dreams. Your dreams are a way for the subconscious mind to communicate with you messages about your internal state and guidance for your waking life. Your dreams help you powerfully connect with your higher self.

The simple act of your recording your dreams can help you be more alert and receptive throughout your day even when you think you don’t know the exact interpretation of them.

Matthew Walker professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, states that dreaming is like overnight therapy; it enhances creativity and problem-solving.

Step 2 Gratitude

Write down or think about three things you are grateful about. Spend one or two minutes thinking about those three things you love in your life and what they mean to you. By affirming satisfaction and contentment, you are sending the message to the Universe that fulfilment is your natural state of being thus more of what you reflect will abound in your life.

Step 3 Meditation

Take 1–15 minutes to clear your mind and connect with source creation to become more in tune, present and mindful. Meditation will align you with your power as co-creator with nature. You can receive guidance and become open to the flow of abundance and wellness that’s inherently yours.

Step -4 Visualise

Visualise your day precisely as you want it to unfold. focus on the specific outcomes you desire and not necessarily the process of getting there. Focusing on every detail of the journey to your goal while visualising can lead to overwhelm. However, imagining the victory and how it feels creates the fabric needed for accomplishment. See the outcome you desire as fact in your visualisation.

Step -5 Manifestation Scripting

Step 5 consists of scripting your day’s desired outcome and other desires goals you want to achieve. Spend no more than 2–5 minutes. This method is about writing what you wish to see in your life in the present tense as if you have it now. Pouring all the feelings of joy and fulfilment this brings to you, into your writing. Submerged yourself entirely into it. Lose yourself in the feelings of satisfaction you are evoking.

Step 6 Take an Affirmation with you

Finally, choose a powerful affirmation for the day and take it away with you. Consciously remembering the declaration and repeating it throughout the day.
