Key Ideas

Start Your Mornings Right

Mornings are mostly spent on auto pilot mode, leading to each day being a routine affair. Mornings can be lived intentionally, and are fundamental in changing our days, years and entire lives.

A few tips to start your day intentionally and creatively, infusing life and divinity into your mornings.

Activities To Do

  • Writing a Journal: Writing acts like a mind emptier and one feels energized and ready to go.
  • Read your Yesterday Journal: It gives a fresh and clear perspective to what you did the previous day.
  • Set a Goal: Set a goal for yourself and try to follow it during the day.
  • Opening Windows: Let the fresh air inside, letting yourself be refreshed and receptive.

Move

  • Exercise: Get yourself moving in the morning and bless your body with endorphins for the whole day. Going for a short walk also sets up the stage for the day, making you aware and energetic.
  • A Short Yoga session: Do some Surya Namaskars or Sun Salutation, and give yourself calm and balance, in just five minutes.
  • Spend time in the Garden: If possible, go to the garden or terrace and breathe in the fresh air, clearing your mind and your senses.

Try This!

  • Take a Selfie: Taking a morning selfie every day tells you a lot of untold things about you, that cannot be captured in journals.
  • Clean your Desk: before breakfast, just clean your home workstation. Once you start your work, it will feel great.
  • Throw away a useless object: Let go of something you don’t need, reducing clutter and increasing clarity in your life. Even deleting files, emails and cleaning your phone or PC of all the junk helps you become orderly.

Silence

  • Enjoying the Morning Silence: Just doing nothing, and listening to the birds chirping outside, waking up to the lovely, promising silence.
  • Watch the Sunrise: Just get up and watch the magnificent sunrise, taking part in the cosmic process orchestrated by some higher power
  • Meditate: Try focusing on your breath for five minutes in the morning for clarity and relaxation.

Imagine

  • Gratitude: Just for a few minutes, be grateful for something, like your health, your wealth, your family, or even for being alive. This will charge you up for the whole day.
  • Visualize The Past: Try to visualize three moments from the previous day, the highlights and experience the good(or bad) sensations they bring you. This helps bring in Flow. 
  • Visualize The Future: You can also visualize three moments for today, and how you want something to happen, making you unconsciously taking the help of the universe to manifest them.

Your Morning Phrase And Theme

  • Your Morning Phrase: Make a morning phrase, the first thing you say to yourself in the morning, a kind of mental programming exercise for yourself.
  • Choose A Theme: Visualize your day in terms of a theme, making it a productive day, or a reflective one or any kind of day you want it to be.

Love Your Partner

  • Think of Someone You Love: thinking of your loved one will increase synchronicity and mutual attraction, enlivening your relationship.
  • Make Coffee for your Partner: Preparing coffee for your loved one in the morning is a beautiful and almost sacramental ritual.

Heal

  • Helping Somebody: Any small activity that can help someone, like doing a small chore, or assisting someone will spark your mornings with divine energy.

  • Forgive Somebody: Forgiving someone unblocks the mental energy inside you which was clogged due to negative feelings earlier. Even forgiving yourself heals you.

  • Write a Thank You Letter: Just like Gratitude, a thank you letter to anyone you want to thank is providing instructions to the universe on how to make your life even more blessed.

Break The Routine

  • Take a day off: Whether self-employed or otherwise, take a day off and start it cleanly, being free of work intentionally. This occasional, sudden decision balances us and makes us work better.
  • Sing A Song: Singing a song or even reading a poem provides you with unexpected energy and connects with your irrational, creative mind.
  • Cancel A Task from the To-do List: It frees you up and gives you a sense of freedom, flexibility and opens you up for the unexpected.

Somewhere Else

Imagine Yourself Somewhere Else: Spend a few minutes imagining the smells, air and noises of a different place where you have been in the past, and you will feel as rejuvenated as if you are back from a vacation.

Be Crafty

Crafting: Small things like modifying your clothes, repairing or decorating something first thing in the morning makes you creative and ‘crafty’ for the entire day. It also helps solve problems which were earlier stuck.

Live in the arena

... instead of judging from the crowd. If you play the game, you 'll produce average work, you'll make stupid decisions, you'll get beat by someone who is faster, or better.

It's better to work on things that are important to you and feel the frustration of failure than to play it safe and never push yourself.

Move toward the next thing

... not away from the last thing.

If something isn't going well, then don't run from it. Find something else to get excited about instead. Spend as much time as you can doing things that pull you in rather than pushing frustration away.

Exercise it

The endorphins that you get as a result of exercising work wonders for your mind. Researchers have shown that exercising improves overall brain function, long-term memory, and information processing skills.

Push it to the limit … sometimes

Ask your mind to remember things that you would not ordinarily try to. 

  • Recitation alone helps to build memory muscles in a way that helps our mind remain healthy. 
  • Use it to create new habits by way of 30-days or 21-day experiments.
  •  Erase some words from your vocabulary for the week or month.

You Are Not Your Thoughts
Our life situation is shaped by the quality of our thoughts. However, most of us assume that we are our thoughts.
You can decide what thoughts to ignore in your mind

The only way to stop identifying yourself with your thoughts is to stop following through on all your thoughts ✋ . Instead, decide to live in the present moment—where you don’t have time to think, only to experience.

4 Steps to stop overthinking 🧠

1. Raise your awareness throughout the day. 

2. When you raise awareness, immediately start observing your thoughts

3. Only limit your thinking to specific moments that you need it.

Make a Schedule

The struggle to establish a side hustle includes converting previously nonwork time to dedicate to it. 

To lessen the impact, create a schedule considering your situation and tendencies, like your most productive time of the day and what activity would create less damage if sacrificed.

Find a Support System

Having people that you can vent to or ask for guidance is key to making any venture a success. Even if you choose to fly solo, surround yourself with people you can talk to, bounce ideas off of, and get genuine feedback from.

Scour your network for people in the same industry, reach out to mentors, and even ask close friends or co-workers for their honest opinions.

Unimportant tasks are really just distractions

Urgent but unimportant tasks = distractions.

Interruptions break your flow

Anytime you are pulled away from your tasks, it takes time to readjust to them when you jump back in (sometimes it can take up to 25 minutes).

Interruptions (notifications, loud noises, social media, checking email etc.) harm your concentration.
