Every day you ask yourself questions – questions that steal your power, decrease your happiness and depress your immune system.
For example, let’s say you filled your schedule without leaving time for your daily exercise and ask yourself, “Why did I do such a dumb thing?” Or, “You ninny. How will you ever get into your outfit for the wedding next month if you don’t stop eating junk food?”
Catch my drift?
What if instead of putting yourself down with your questions you created a new habit by asking questions like, “How can I smile even more today?” Or, “What one action step can I take today that will improve my health in the long run?”
Do you see how you can ask yourself questions that focus your energy on what you do well and the ways you take care of yourself to improve your well being? Do you think your world would change if you made a habit of asking yourself similar questions every morning as part of your daily routine?
You do follow some sort of daily routine, don’t you?
Now why would I ask if you do certain actions daily? Why would a routine make a difference for you?
In this busy world where even kids carry personal organizers to keep track of all their activities, self-care often falls by the way side. Taking time to prepare for the day, to meditate and focus within, to exercise – all those activities make a difference in how your day goes.
Create a morning routine and follow it daily for 28 days. You will ingrain a new habit and actually feel addicted to performing every aspect of that routine daily.
You will feel good about yourself and all the while you will improve your health and happiness.
