Hey guys! Welcome back to Evan Rose! Super excited today because it's my first real blog post over here! And I'm starting off with something I'm really passionate about, Hal Elrod's Miracle Morning Routine and what I do to start off my day right. Let's get right into it!
What is the Miracle Morning routine?
The miracle morning routine was created by Hal Elrod. It started off as his personal morning routine, but when he saw how good it made him feel, he decided to share it with the world. Today, many use this morning routine from CEOs, to college students, to stay at home moms. After listening to his audiobook, I decided to try it out myself. And I LOVED it. It made me feel so productive and I really felt like I got more done. The miracle morning routine is based off the "life SAVERS".
(You can switch around the order as you like) For example I read later in the morning.
Silence - intentional silence can calm you down, wake you up, and center you for your day. There are a few options for silence in the morning depending on what you prefer and what is relevant for you.
-thinking about what you're grateful for
2. Affirmations- affirmations are pretty much just positive phrases which you speak or write. This can brighten your mood, and program your mind you think more positively. Also, whether or not you believe in the Law of Attraction, putting out there what you want can help motivate you to take the steps needed to achieve your goals. Your affirmations could be related to self love, your career, or anything else you want to improve on.
3. Visualizations - visualize what you want to do, how you want to feel, and your energy for the day. This could be all in your head, or you can find images (or vision boards) that match the energy you desire.
4. Exercise - Getting your body moving in the morning can wake you up and set you up for a great day, and of course is a great thing to make a habit. You could:
- do a workout
-yoga or pilates
-go on a walk/run
5. Read - Get your brain moving! This is a like exercise but for your mind. I personally love reading, so this comes naturally to me. (though I do it after my work is done because is less of chore to me and more of a treat) It doesn't have to be a lot, whether you prefer 5 chapters, 1, or 10 pages!
6. Scribe (write) - writing or journally every morning can really help you destress and center yourself. You could write down your affirmations, what your grateful for, or just your thoughts. I use a little journal with a quick daily prompt. I love it! Here it is: https://www.amazon.com/Thing-Every-Morning-Make-Your/dp/0593137469 .
And that's it! You don't have to do this every day, maybe start with the weekends, then move up tp 4 days a week, then 5, then maybe 6 or 7! Of course, you can always customize this routine to your schedule. Watch my video to see my routine, don't forget to like, subscribe, and share, and I'll see you next week!
