A quick exercise to start your day the right way

 

A quick tip I learned from Louise Hay that really works!

When you wake up in the morning, before you get out of bed take a minute to put a positive thought in your head. Something as simple as ‘today will be a good day’ works well. Even if you don’t feel happy or positive when you wake up – just tell yourself it will be a good day, or thank your bed for the comfortable sleep, anything that can put you in a happy mindset for the start of your day.

You are putting out the intention of enjoying your day. I know it sounds hokey but it does something, it shifts your thoughts, your perspective, ever so slightly and over time that slight shift can cause big change.

Once you are up , Louise says to go and look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself ” I love you“.  Honestly it feels weird, and the first time I did it I laughed and looked around to make sure no one was watching or listening. Everytime I do it it gets easier and feels more natural. For whatever reason it helps me to be more patient and kind to myself and to my family as we are rushing the kids out the  door to school! I reminds me to come from a place of love whenever I can.

It’s simple and takes less than a minute, so it’s an easy little trick to add to your morning routine. Try it for a few weeks and see how you feel. I’d love to hear any insights in the comment section below!
Check out one of my favourite books on healing by the incredible Louise Hay. It’s  full of great insight on healing your body and mind.
