Day 41 - My day today starts at 5:30 am , doing the Miracle Morning for well over a month now has really impacted my life. For something that sounds so simple and yet in the beginning days is so hard. It's difficult to really explain into words how profound an experience it can be. So my advice to you if you have just found this post or even this blog is to search for The a Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod there are books, audios, podcasts and so much more . But he's the expert and founder of this path and process. I am sharing my journey and learnings along the way but hear it from the man himself! I promise you won't be disappointed.
So today's routine for me was to get up and meditate for about 15 mins (it felt longer) then repeat my Affirmations I have written and some that Hal kindly shared with his community members. Then I spent a little time looking at my vision board and goals, picturing them , living them, feeing them. I see this part of the day as an tuning into opportunity and what goodness the day and days ahead have to bring. It's a very positive and inspiring way to start your day.
Then exercise, today I went for a run took me about 20 mins to do a route I had planned but no stats to share as I forgot to wear my Fitbit. Felt disappointment for a moment and then remembered this is not what the exercise is about. It's about giving the body movement and waking myself up, becoming fitter and healthier. So still pleased with myself and no longer disappointed. After all I ran for 20 minutes for someone who would still describe themselves as someone who is not a runner!
Did about 10 minutes reading and 10 mins journalling some notes (see below) and looked at my journal to check in at what my day had ahead before hitting the shower ready to wake the rest of the family up for the start of their day.
Kindness is the topic I journalled about today as it has come to mind yesterday when I was trying to explain to my daughter and son why it was important to be kind. So I decided to share my personal thoughts on today's blog post. Do let me know what you think as well.
So my thoughts on what kindness is?
Generally a behaviour or spontaneous gesture of goodwill towards a person or an animal or nature. Kindness it is a message from one heart to another, an act of love, that shows something you care.
My journal notes came up with a list of how we as a family can do this and what it might look like in practise. Please share any other ideas you have.
These are just a few ideas that we as a family will be using.
Not just for one day but every day we can, always.
