It starts with the simple concept of a morning routine. Mornings are our moment of truth. They are raw and honest; a time when we are not distracted by our daily lives, to do list.

1. Start with the way you want to feel.
Release the unimportant I- should -do-this objective and start listening to the way you really want to feel. At the end of the day, all we do is driven by the desire to feel a certain way. We want to feel good, happy, loved, valued, intelligent, accomplished, attractive, desired. Get very clear on how you feel, then create a morning routine around that. You may realize that running marathon that is not so important for you this year as thought-it could be something deeper, like feeling more love and closeness with your partner.
2. A mere 15 minutes is all it takes.
Sometimes, when change or something new is introduced into our lives, we are going at full speed and try to shoot for the stars. Then, when not immediately reach that goal as fast as we want, we feel overwhelmed and leave. We often forget that we have to learn to walk before we can run. When training for a marathon, you can start with 30 miles? No. Start slowly. Small steps and small moments are the things that make the big steps and the great moments of life.
This week, we will learn to walk before you get overwhelmed about the race. To begin, scheduling 15 minutes to you tomorrow morning. You will feel safe in kicking this routine with a simple, yet powerful intention 15 minutes reserved for that .
3. The night before “trigger.”
all started with good intentions for our morning routines, but things will come up and our motivation is renunciation. So here’s a little secret that will enable success even before cracking the eyelids in the morning. “Triggering night before” Create yourself a There are fancy pants science behind the fact that we need a signal in order to create new habits, so let’s create one.

My triggers include generally preparing the cute workout clothes, programming my morning routine in my iCal, and put a delicious candle and matches out on my desk. What are the triggers?
This is my favorite part. It is using the fine china, and carrying more attractive (but comfortable) underwear. It is looking forward to your mornings with a deep breath and smile giant-love-this time man me. I realize that we can not always use the fine porcelain dishes and have kids and all kinds of excuses, but find that it is important to feel a little pampered at times. Get yourself a delicious fresh cup of coffee or a beautiful new magazine your favorite designer for your practice of gratitude. Let’s start making your routine so wonderful morning it would be sad to lose.
5. Inspire those around you.
We, all new morning routines just created in our whiskey and work group. Some were intense and physical, others were soft and emotional, but all were powerful and inspiring. That’s the thing-your morning routine so it is unique to you. Some of the girls began to share this new effort around their offices and realized how were the other intrigued. So much so that his coworkers actually started creating new morning routines themselves. It was that contagious.
