Why are mornings so important?
Your mornings are the most important part of your day.
Mornings are when you choose how to spend the rest of your day, gather your thoughts and refocus your mind on what’s important.
Mornings are especially important when you’re on a spiritual journey. It’s the part of your day that sets the tone for how your day goes.
Sometimes, when we wake up and get out of bed, promptly check our phones and rush to work, it can be easy to forget what’s most important in your life.
Spiritual morning routines are a great way to ensure you don’t lose focus and remember what matters in life – even if you only do them now and then.
How do I start a spiritual morning routine?
Having a morning routine may take some time to adjust and perfect. When I first started my morning routines, I was used to waking up at a particular time and would go about my day without having much of a plan.
There are many different ways in which you can start your spiritual morning routine. To find the best one for you, think about your habits, what kind of person you are and what works best for you. The most important thing is that it’s something that doesn’t feel like work – instead, it makes you excited for the rest of the day!
Below I’ll outline seven ways that you can create your spiritual morning routine:
1. Make your bed
When your living space is clear, so is your mind.
The simple act of making your bed in the morning can be a great way to start each day because it can help you focus on what is important instead of being distracted by unimportant tasks.
In addition, the process of making your bed is symbolic because it represents you making space for new things that are happening in your life and not just focusing on all of the negative stuff that has already happened.
Waking up and making your bed sets you up for success!
2. Avoid using technology
Every time you use technology in the morning, it throws off your whole day.
When you wake up in the morning and get out of bed, try to avoid using any form of technology at all (I know that’s hard). This applies to using your phone or watching TV.
Technology can throw off your whole vibe, and it can make it hard for you to be mindful.
The best part about avoiding using technology is that you will force yourself to grow as an individual. Most people these days rely so heavily upon their phones for entertainment during their free time, but when they aren’t able to use them in the morning, they have no choice but to find some other form of entertainment.
3. Stretch and do yoga
We all know that exercise is good for your body, but did you know that it’s also incredibly good for the mind?
When you stretch and balance your energy in the morning, not only does it make a great warm-up, it also allows you to start your day off with some much-appreciated self-love.
The most important thing is to find what works best for yourself. You can follow along to an online how-to video if that helps or even download an app. Whatever makes it easiest for you to follow through and connect with your inner self in the morning is great.
Have you ever felt more alive when you move your body? I’ll tell you right now that I haven’t!
One thing that I think all spiritual individuals should do in the morning is to meditate.
Meditation allows you to connect with the never-ending energy of life. It can help you have a clearer head, and it’s just really good for your mind, body, and soul.
If you’re not used to meditating, I’d recommend just taking 30 minutes in the morning and doing it if you can do more than that, even better!
If you are having trouble getting into meditation or keeping up with it, I recommend using an app called Headspace. It’s a great meditation app, and it gives you all of the tools you need to get through it.
5. Practice gratitude
When you practice gratitude in the morning, it sets your whole day up for success.
Every night before you go to bed, write down three things that happened during that day that made you happy. Then when you get up in the morning, take some time to reflect on those things again and feel grateful for them.
If you do this every day, it will help you to look at the positive things and grow as an individual.
It’s amazing what the simple act of practicing gratitude can do for you.
6. Use affirmations
Positive affirmations can help you to start your day in a positive light. They are short but powerful statements you say to yourself in the morning that program your mind for success.
Some positive affirmations to add to your morning are:
- I will overcome all of the obstacles in my life.
- I am positive, and I trust that everything happens for a reason.
- The future is bright, and I will be there to see it!
By saying these simple statements to yourself, you can set up your day for success.
You can find all kinds of affirmations online that you can use, but I do recommend writing some of your own.
It’s much more effective when it comes from within and not from an outside source.
I like to use affirmations because they are easy ways of reprogramming my subconscious mind for the better.
7. Be with your thoughts
They say that silence of golden, and I’d have to agree.
When you are trying to get your day started, don’t put any distraction in the way of just being with yourself.
When you are alone in a quiet environment, you can experience so many different feelings and thoughts that will help you grow as an individual.
Take some time out of your morning to reflect on these thoughts and be present with yourself. A good way to do this is by sitting quietly for 5 minutes and focusing only on breathing. If something helpful comes up during this time, write it down and revisit it later when you need it most!
By the time you get to work or school, your morning routine will have already set the tone for a positive and spiritual day.
Spiritual morning routines are a great way to start your day off on the right foot.
If you want to create an effective morning routine, you must find what works for yourself and use this time as an opportunity to reflect on yourself.
Whether you meditate or practice gratitude with affirmations, these simple acts can help set up your day for success.
