If you don’t see me doing my happy dance its probably because I didn’t wake up early to do My Miracle Morning. The older I get the more it becomes blatantly clear that I suck at multi tasking. I suck at being rushed. I suck at doing all the things all at once in the morning. Thank goodness I saw a Facebook friend was co-hosting a Miracle Morning support group.
There had to be a more graceful way to sart the day. I felt like each day I had to hit ground running (literally, for a crying baby.) Some days I still do. Its all from the book The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod . HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Real quick, he breaks it down in a sweet little acronym: S.A.V.E.R.S.
SILENCE– I love Gabrielle Bernstein for all things meditation, you can check out her beginers guide here. Headspace is a popular app also.
AFFIRMATION– This can be whatever you need at the moment. I even set my alarm to say “I choose what I see” in the afternoon just for a reality check.
VISUALIZATION– Remember your magazine collages you did? Pintrest is great for this! Or day dream. Or, full disclosure, one morning I just scrolled Insta. Counts, right???
EXERCISE– Right now I am working through The Journey Junkie’s Chakra Yoga Challenge and The Balanced Life Pilates Challenge. Both FREE!
Its pretty epic to watch the sun rise from your yoga mat.
READING– Almost finished with this book but I already have a list of whats next! I haven’t read, well, sense I had kids, LOL. Now I am adding books to my life again. Dying to get my hands on Brene Brown’s Into the Wilderness next. How many pages can you read in 10 minutes? That adds up!
SCRIBE– JOURNALING – I like to do a brain dump, or Ill write out my affirmations here. Bullet Journals… Danielle LaPort’s journal prompts are just soul stirring, so many options.
He says to wake up an hour early to spend 10 minutes on each section. But you can do it any which way you want. Or do them for just a minute a piece, or spend 30 minutes on one and 5 on another. IMO you will want to wake up even earlier to have more time just to yourself.
I look forward to mornings now, WHAT?!?!
This time gives me the opportunity to get clear on my day, bring life to ideas, drink hot tea, READ, and move my body. I love the energy of the morning. Its better for me and its better for my family.
The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams. ~Oprah
My Miracle Morning has a whole community. Its a little Raw Raw but I still recommend the book. You can sign up for a few free chapters/video/audio by clicking above.
So there you have it! Anything to feel a little more like myself again.
Steeping my hot tea, Ahhh
***If this speaks to you and you want to try I would love to hear about it! Maybe we could get our own little support group going.
