My Morning Routine

The best time for me to work on my self-care is first thing in the morning. My routine is constantly evolving and currently I like to spend about 30 mins on something I call the 3 M’s. I wrote about this in my second book The Stress Solution. For you, it can be as short as five minutes or as long as an hour. These are the three broad bases, which I recommend you try to cover:

  • MINDFULNESS: This will give you an immediate short-term shot of calm. Think breathing, being in nature or meditation.
  • MOVEMENT: You’ll want to prime your body physically. Think skipping, t’ai chi or yoga.
  • MINDSET: Send your thoughts in a positive direction. Think gratitude, affirmations or loving kindness meditation.

The very act of putting yourself through a series of familiar, habitual steps at the same time every day tells your system that you’re in a place of safety and control and helps shift you into thrive state at just the right time.

How you start each morning can set the tone for the rest of your day. In this video, I outline simple and effective tools that can help you get the most out of your day.
