Do You Have a Morning Routine?
Do you start your day off on the right foot?
I drink a glass of water after getting up, go to the bathroom and then either do 15 to 30 minutes of exercises with my Smovey rings, or go out for an hour in the woods with my poles for a round of Nordic Walking. Upon returning, I make myself a green smoothie—and then get down to work.
Do you have a morning routine? If not, you might like to try the SAVERS routine developed by Hal Elrod, author of The Miracle Morning. You decide whether you want to invest 20, 30 or even 60 minutes a day.
The word SAVERS stands for silence, affirmations, visualisation, exercise, reading and scribing (which is another word for ‘writing’).
S – Practise mindful walking, meditation, reflection or deep breathing for 5 minutes.
A – Say an affirmation out loud and repeat for about five minutes. This can be an affirmation to improve your health, relationships, confidence, finances and so on.
V – Visualise your greatest goals and deepest desires for five minutes.
E – Exercise by walking briskly or running for 20 minutes a day, to get your heart rate up and your blood flowing.
R – Read anything that might help you to grow personally and professionally for about ten minutes a day.
S – Start journaling for 5 minutes a day, and write down your insights, successes, lessons learned, breakthroughs and so on.
Hal Elrod tell us that we don’t need to do everything in this order—and that we can start with just six minutes a day!
I might even try this out. What about you? Would you like to join me?
