My Miracle Morning #6

Today’s Miracle Morning:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Last night I was very fatigued. I had to do some grocery shopping in the afternoon because I fell asleep and took a nap the previous afternoon. Costco wasn’t too bad because most people were still at work or had shopped in the morning. But they were all out of pies and had no pumpkin. So I had to swing by the supermarket and they came through for me with pumpkin and I am going easy on myself and bought pie crusts. I also picked up cheesecake! So we are set for Thanksgiving. So I went to bed last night at 9 pm and got 8 hours of deep sleep. When I woke up at 5 am I was a little fuzzy headed but had no problems getting out of bed and getting ready for the day.

I started with meditation: Guided Meditation For Gratitude ♥ Day 2. I thought that meditating of gratitude was fitting for today.

Then after stopping to make A some eggs I did my exercises. Brazilian Butt Lift Challenge ♥ The Perfect Butt Workout and Yoga For Sore Glutes ♥ 5 Minute Miracle. Then A and I went and woke D up and he joined me for Beginner Yoga ♥ Easy Morning Yoga For A Positive Mind.

I finished reading Meditation for Beginners: How to Relieve Stress, Anxiety and Depression and Return to a State of Inner Peace and Happiness.

Affirmations:

  • I respond calmly and rationally when my son needs my attention.
  • When I see something out of place I put it away right then, I do not put it off until later.
  • I am a happy healthy person with lots of energy.
  • I am loving and affectionate towards my son and my husband.
  • I will be productive today.
  • I will do one thing today that will help reach financial freedom.
  • I am a strong and capable woman who is not afraid to speak up for what is right.
  • I will have a happy stress free day!

My visualization: Me and my family having a picnic in our backyard at a house we own all happy and smiling.

Now I am sitting down to write in my journal and this post.

I hope you have a WONDERFUL day and a Happy Thanksgiving!

My Miracle Morning #5

Today’s Miracle Morning:

This morning we were woken up at 4:30 am by A who did not want to snuggle for the next 30 minutes. So we got up and started our day at 4:30 instead of 5. This was after five and a half hours of sleep and my head was clear. After going through my morning ritual D and I meditated togeather and A even joined us for part of it. Guided Meditation For Letting Go ♥ Day 5.

D and I continued with a longer than usual yoga session, for a weekday, because we had the time. A joined us for parts of this as well. A has decided that he loves exercises and positions, his words for yoga. Easy Yoga For Beginners ♥ Full Body Gentle Flow.

I stopped and put tea on to steep.

I read another chapter in my current book: Meditation for Beginners: How to Relieve Stress, Anxiety and Depression and Return to a State of Inner Peace and Happiness. While reading I put my headphones in and turned on some classical music to help me concentrate with A running around.

Affirmations:

  • I respond calmly and rationally when my son needs my attention.
  • When I see something out of place I put it away right then, I do not put it off until later.
  • I am a happy healthy person with lots of energy.
  • I am loving and affectionate towards my son and my husband.
  • I will be productive today.
  • I will do one thing today that will help reach financial freedom.
  • I am a strong and capable woman who is not afraid to speak up for what is right.

I have decided to stick with this visualization for awhile. Me and my family having a picnic in our backyard at a house we own all happy and smiling.

Then I paused and took a shower.

Now I am sitting down to write in my journal and this post.

I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

My Miracle Morning #1

I have been up since 5:00 am after 6 hrs of sleep and I woke up feeling GREAT! I have read a lot of self help books in my life. But one of my favorites is The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM) By Hal Elrod. Hal lays out a simple plan that does not involve anyone but yourself to help you have a wonderful and productive day.  It all starts with waking up an hour earlier then you have to, and spending time on your personal health and development. You can find more info at miraclemorning.com.

So I had read the book before but I was unable to make the suggestions in the book stick. Stress and responsibilities got in the way and distracted me. Recently I reread the book by listening to it on audible  it because I was feeling like I was in a slump. After a false start the last two days, first I had insomnia and was unable to get up early, and the second I succeeded in waking up at my set time of 5 am but was interrupted and was unable to finish all the steps. Yesterday even without finishing I still had an awesome day.

Miracle Morning steps(A really short version):

  • Silence
  • Affirmations
  • Visualization
  • Scribing
  • Reading
  • Exercise

So my biggest hurdle is accountability so each day I will be posting my morning here. Aren’t you so lucky!

My Morning:

I started out my morning at 5:00 am. I was not tired and I go 6 hours of sleep. I had used nighttime affirmations the night before telling myself that I would be well rested in the morning. I took my temp (tracking my cycle), drank some water and get dressed. Then I was interrupted by A waking up wanting his dada to sit on the couch with him. After talking him down so that dada could get some more sleep and getting him situated on the couch I heated up some pizza for him from the night before. He hadn’t eaten much dinner and was hungry. Talked A into using the potty (potty training), brushed my teeth and splashed water on my face. Then situate A back on the couch and eating pizza!

Currently my silence is guided meditation videos on YouTube. I really like Boho Beautiful’s Guided Meditation’s. After meditating through one of her 10 min videos I switch to exercise and do some yoga.

My reading this morning was the first chapter of Meditation for Beginners: How to Relieve Stress, Anxiety and Depression and Return to a State of Inner Peace and Happiness. You might notice a theme, I am working on being a calmer and more centered parent.

Affirmations:

  • I respond calmly and rationally when my son needs my attention.
  • When I see something out of place I put it away right then, I do not put it off until later.
  • I am a happy person with lots of energy.
  • I am loving and affectionate towards my son and my husband.
  • I will be productive today.

I like to keep my affirmations short at least to start with. It make’s them easier to remember and repeat them through out the day.

My visualization to day was of my being happy and energetic.

This blog post of course is my scribing for the day.

So now I am off to cook breakfast. Have a WONDERFUL day!
