Morning Ritual Cartoon
Sometimes I wake up in a shite mood. There's no good reason for it and through the years I've learned how to overcome WUIABM (Waking Up In a Bad Mood).
This is a morning ritual I use daily:
1. Wake up and drink a tall glass of water
2. Meditate (20 min)
3. Write morning pages (source: Julia Cameron)
4. Write what I'm grateful for
5. Take a walk
6. Read inspiring and sometimes spiritual literature. Right now I'm listening to Deepak Chopra and Oprah 21 Day meditation CD. (There really is nothing you can't accomplish when you have Oprah in your corner.)
Each morning when we wake up there is a gravitational pull that can make us go negative. We need to purposefully and intentionally combat this gravity.
It's not some deep, dark and terrible thing. It's simply a matter of shaking out the cobwebs out of our heads.
Do you have a morning ritual? What helps you get the engine revving in the morning?
