Making sure you have the best morning routine and beginning the day on the right foot with health and wellness as top priorities is an important aspect in our daily lives. However, I am aware that many people struggle (or experienced struggles at one point or another) to maintain a mindful routine for the morning particularly as we move into adulthood and allow ourselves to be caught up in what the expectations of society and work are.
We were all raised with the belief that, in order to succeed and have an enjoyable retirement, it is necessary to do our best every single day for a long time. There was no discussion on how this might impact our overall health and our mental health. While we’re beginning to engage in vital self-care and mental health conversations, we often overlook that it all begins when we get up! The best or worst morning routine will determine how your brain and body will react to the remainder of the day.
As someone who’s struggled in the past to have an easier time balancing work and personal life, and making health, mindfulness and mental well-being a top priority while still having the ability to be successful and achieve all I’ve ever wanted to achieve in my life, I’m always looking for more simple and natural methods to ensure I have an enjoyable morning routine and a relaxed start to the day.
There are numerous ways to do this! A few of the most important factors that experts advise to be aware of are eating a nutritious and healthy breakfast, drinking plenty of teas, water, as well as herbal shot, meditation and so on.
So, when I decided to pay more attention to the routine of my day, I searched for ways to include all of these things without getting overwhelmed, or as if I was forcing myself into something that wasn’t sustainable in the long haul. Through a constant repetition of my morning affirmations, while sipping an iced coffee, juice, or tea and then eating my nightly toast or oats I was able to find a perfect equilibrium between ease and productivity. This is a simple method to get your mind in the right direction for the remainder of the day, without having to rise 2 hours earlier or having to rethink my day’s schedule. Even on the most hectic times, it’s not much time to go through my most favorite mantras while asleep. As of now, I’ve made the habit of saying my affirmations every morning to start my day off right.
These positive affirmations in the morning are definitely helping me. They are extremely helpful to me when I am sad or anxious.
What Are Morning Affirmations?
Morning affirmations can be described as phrases, mantras, or phrases (either long or short) that you’ll say or write down to set your thoughts in a positive state of mind. One of the most important meanings of the word “affirmation” is encouraging or emotional support. In my view, when I think of it, when I use these affirmations for the morning, we are the first ones to put our thoughts in a good state, encouraging the mind to be kind to it, providing the help that is needed, and hopefully taking away any negative thoughts that could pop up in your mind during the remainder of the day. The affirmations are a fantastic opportunity to focus your mind on your positive outlook to reduce the negative thoughts, stress, and despair and to prepare your body to face every challenge that the day might bring to you, physically and mentally. The belief I hold is that a healthy body is a result of an enlightened mind and that it is not always the reverse.
Do Morning Affirmations Work?
It is my belief that the mind can do wonders and that believing in positive affirmations can create positive thoughts, confident words, and tremendous energy in your world. According to me, this can bring only positive changes to your body, mind, and life.
Let’s not forget that how we respond to situations is directly linked to the contents of our thoughts and the state of our mind. Beginning the day with the right mindset can greatly increase your odds of having a pleasant and productive day. It will help you to be less susceptible to negative external influences or aggression. We cannot control the outside world, but we can influence how we react to it. And we can certainly prepare our minds to be at its most positive each morning by simply taking a few moments to yourself.
What Is A Good Daily Affirmation?
There is not a single affirmation that is universally applicable or a single phrase that can make everything flawless immediately. There are numerous affirmations, quotes or phrases, as well as self-help guides that you can take notes of, or consider each morning before you begin your day. Personally, I prefer to use some phrases and daily mantras I find positive, inspiring and uplifting. Beyond that I’m offering specific ones like morning affirmations to be grateful and morning affirmations for abundance and even morning affirmations to be successful. You are able to twist these phrases , or create your own and let them work for you in every way!
