Good morning to you all. Here we are, November, Wow…the months just keep flying by. This morning as I have pondered what I could share with you all, my mind went to what the magic is?
What is the magic for…..success, health, wealth, family, relationships, or happiness. Maybe magic is the wrong term but I could use terms like the secret, the formula, the process, the habits or routines.
I am curious to know some of the routines of yours on what you feel is the daily formula.
It is interesting to hear of what people do as a concoction for the fountain of youth. How to stay young, healthy, strong, etc. The pills/vitamins, the morning mixtures, the diets, the creams, the exercise routines and on and on to live longer, live healthier, look better, avoid wrinkles, live happier and to prevent aging, pains, or disease.
What is the daily formula to start the day right?
What is the daily routine to begin and get ready to have a good day and accomplish much?
What is the magic to put yourself in a good mood for the day?
What is the routine to love your family and help them?
What is the process to think of others and do random acts of kindness to others?
What is the habits done daily to feed your mind?
I am anxious to see/hear your thoughts on how and what you do.
Here are a couple of my routines;
I try and start with a bit of meditation, quiet time, thankful moments….some call it prayer, some call it meditation, and some might just call it pondering on good things.
It really helps me to get 2 to 5 hours in the morning in planning, email, communicating, reading etc…to set the platform for the day. I want to create success in some things first thing.
I have a checklist to plan out the day so I make sure I get everything I need in my head and on paper.
I want to accomplish at least a few things towards my goals to set the stage for positive thoughts and the thought I have accomplished some things first thing. I check these off on my goal checklist.
I do review yesterday and the week ahead.
I try and identify my top 3 priorities to work on during the day/week.
I do have a proteins shake in the morning with my vitamins; (fountain of youth formula for me)
I drink 16 oz of water during the early morning.
I try and get an AM exercise in and plan a PM exercise. The PM exercise is the toughest for me.
I listen to some good uplifting music during this whole process. Sometimes it is spa music, sometimes classical or other soft music. I ramp it up as the morning rolls to stronger beats….maybe that is my way of concentrating early and then getting ampped up for the day as the music changes.
Ok, you might think this is weird but that is how I start. How do you?
I am fully aware we are all in different positions in life. Some have little children…..that changes things and the formula, Some have school age and teenagers…..huh, that changes routines. I get it. But I am just suggesting there is a secret to start your day and there could be a better way.
What are the things you do to be a success in all areas of your life?
I would like to hear them…..because I am always looking for ways to improve.
Well, there are my ponderings for this morning,
Have a great day and I certainly am grateful for every one of you.
