About 2 months ago I listened to the podcast, “Achieve your Goals with Hal Elrod”. It inspired and intrigued me to think how I could accomplish so much more just by getting up a little earlier each day.
Now, I am the type of person who sleeps wonderfully and enjoys every minute I can get, so the idea of getting up an hour earlier than I do to accomplish some of my activities left me pretty hesitant and nervous that I would fail immediately!
So I prepped, I envisioned, I told myself I could do it, I layed out all my clothes for the morning, got my ipad ready, my water bottle full, every little thing I could think that may derail my morning I took care of! I went to bed that Sunday night thinking about how awesome the next morning would be, and how much time I will have in the afternoon to spend with my family, dog and outdoors if I get this workout done in the morning.
I woke up at 5:00 am ready to rock! I was excited! That is weird for me, for sure… But I rolled with it, and got up exactly how I pictured and killed it down in that basement and felt amazing!!
So do you know what I did that next night? Yup! Prepped again, told myself it was an awesome day one and it will be an even better day two! So I have been continuing this everyday during the week for about 2 months. The weekend I wake up earlier than before but not 5:00 am, I am not that crazy! I also went on a vacation where I did wake up earlier than most people and took a nice walk, but was a little different that my normal morning for obvious reasons.
Why am I telling you about this one extra hour I gained in my day? Well, it has not only saved me some time in the afternoon, but it feels so great to workout in the morning. I thought in the past I really liked my afternoon workouts, but the morning is so peaceful. I am not worried about missing out on anything else going on, I am totally focused and feel that energy boost all day afterwards.
Not only am I getting my workout done in that extra hour but I am also taking a few quiet moments outside (while my dog goes to the bathroom) and drinking a cup of bone broth to keep my gut health in check. Then while I am in the shower I speak to myself with positive thoughts about the day and how I am going to make it great!
I know this all sound very woo woo to most people as it did to me when I first listened to a couple podcasts but then I said why not? Why not try this and see how I feel? Could this help me be a better version, a more positive version of myself?
If you have ever said any of these things to yourself, you should try changing your morning routine to a Miracle Morning!
- “I never have time to myself, there is no way I could fit in exercise or meditation!”
- ” I could never get up any earlier, I already have to leave the house by X “
- ” I am worn out out by the end of the day and could not think of exercising”
- ” I need to change something in my life, I am unhappy and tired all the time”
- ” I want change in my life and need a kickstart in the right direction”
