First thing in the morning really matters. As soon as you wake into consciousness perhaps even before your eyes are awake your brain wakes and this is where you need to make it count and start the day off well.
It’s all too easy to let predominant thoughts enter your mind and these could well be on the negative side or indeed truly negative. If you are filled with worries and troublesome thoughts then these will just escalate and easily attract more negative thinking throughout your day.
Start the day off well.
These tips may well help you to start the day off well:
As soon as you wake, announce to yourself ‘I’m awake’, you could shout this outloud or just in your mind. What you are doing here is stopping thoughts in their tracks by distracting yourself that you are awake.
Then you can be grateful for a restful and satisfying sleep. Even if this is not totally true, if you focus on a bad nights sleep that’s what you will keep getting. Being mindful to be grateful for a good nights sleep will bring about more nights of better sleep.
Stuck on gratitude, then think about being grateful for a comfortable bed, for your home, your family, your work, your day ahead, your goals. Keep the gratitude and positivity going.
Foggy thinking can impede thoughts if you are stuck, then try saying thank you repeatedly as you get out of bed, put your feet on the floor and walk to the bathroom. Better thoughts can come.
Stick with it.
These 3 actions may appear unnatural to begin with. Keep at it, every morning and if you forget then start tomorrow. Keep it going and make it a habit and see how much better you feel by starting the day well.
