The power of a morning practice
6 practices for a mindful morningNot sure where to start? Here are some examples of morning practices you could incorporate into your routine: 1. Write in a journal Set an intention, create a mantra, free-write some thoughts, whatever you need. 2. Meditate Take some mindful breaths, embrace the space between thoughts or check in with how you’re feeling, physically and emotionally. 3. Move your body Go for a walk around the garden, do some yoga stretches or do a few jumping jacks. Moving your body is a great way to connect with yourself physically. 4. Enjoy a mindful cuppa If you normally have a morning tea or coffee, turn it into a ritual by lighting a candle/incense, listening to some relaxing music or simply by not doing anything else while you enjoy it. 5. Visualise your day You might find it helpful to work some positive visualisation into your day. Visualise your day and picture everything going smoothly. 6. Read something inspirational A few pages of poetry, some quotes from someone you find inspiring or even a page of fiction. Reading something uplifting and creative can help you get into a positive mindset for the day ahead.
Play with a few ideas and see what feels best to you. A morning practice should become a joyful addition to your routine and something you look forward to. Once you’ve found a practice that works for you, try to do it every morning - even at weekends and see how it makes you feel.
