Getting Your Love Groove Back On

Feeling better We Do s0 much better

How do you start your day?

Just for today

One of the best places to reduce the escalation of anxiety, is in the morning.

Even before you get out of bed, take a moment to simply be still and notice how you are thinking and feeling.

If you’re like me, very often before my feet touch the floor, I am already listing everything I want to get done, figuring out the time it will take or scheduling tasks and then fretting over, what or who will get in the way of getting everything done.

By the time I hit the day running,  I am simply hoping things will work out, forgetting I have the power to guide my day.

We all do this unconsciously.

Now there’s a conscious way to guide your day.

When you first wake up in the morning, what are the first words that come out of your mouth, or the first thoughts streaming through your mind? Do you complain? Do you worry about the day ahead of you? Do you think about what’s not working in your life?

How we start our day is how we live our lives.

Now, as I first wake up and open my eyes, (it helps to set the alarm a few minutes early to give yourself this time be with yourself, rather than your to do list) I centre myself with a few good thoughts as I get ready for the day, what a difference it makes!

Good morning, bed. I love you, thank you for being so comfortable.
(I say my name) this is going to be a great day.
Only good lies before me

What do you say when you first look in the bathroom mirror?
Probably your thinking is not too spectacular or kind is it? Try these:
Good morning Darling. I love you.
We are having a great day today.
You are a magnet for miracles.
I am a gift to the world.
You have time for everything you need to do.

What do you say when you take a shower?
Every thought I think is creating my day.
I choose to have a great day
I am willing to change and to grow.
All is well in my world.

What do you say when you get dressed?
There are great experiences coming my way today.
I am loaded with energy, vitality and enthusiasm
You look fantastic today!

How do you leave your house for work? Do you just run out or do you say something nice.
I am the power in my life
I can choose to feel good all day
I can trust myself to make great decisions

And what do you do when you get into the car. Do you slam the door and growl that you have to go to work?
Life loves me!
I will arrive at work at the perfect time.
My day will be filled with ease and pleasure.
There is nothing I cannot handle with ease.

quote-ChoosetobelieveAn affirmation is a beginning point. It opens the way. You are saying to your subconscious mind: I am taking responsibility. I am aware that there is something I can do to change.

Its like taking 5 to breathe, 5 breaths in and 5 breaths out, being in the moment, and doing that throughout the day.

Our negative, worrying, anxious minds unchecked, simply cause havoc. We add one worry on top of another unless we stop and change the direction of our thinking. It’s that simple. Harder to practice I admit, but completely doable.

Open your eyes. Open the door. Take the first step.

Say these affirmations tomorrow morning.

Say them for the entire week.

See how you can change your life by a single thought.

Life is a learning process. We are here to learn and to grow

Repeat to yourself as your eyelids flutter open in the morning

“I make room for all the good that is waiting for me today.”
