If one would like to become or establish a winning morning routine, they need to set the intention before they go to bed the night before. Here are my seven good morning questions to serve as your guide:
What Am I Grateful for This Morning?
Spend a little time being grateful as soon as you wake up. When is the last time you thought or said out loud all the things, people, and experiences in which you are GRATEFUL? It is amazing what happens to your energy level when you begin the day in this manner.
What Exercise In Positivity Am I Going To Focus on This Morning?
Repeat positive affirmations or incantations that are in tune with you goals and dreams. When you do this, you immediately put your mind in a positive winning state.
The definition is an incantation is: a written or recited formula of words designed to produce a particular effect. The difference between an affirmation and an incantation is when you recite an incantation, you use your whole body and you repeat it over and over, versus an affirmation when you just say something positive, but not necessarily repeated.
What Does My Schedule Look Like Today?
Visualize what your day is going to look like. Walk through your entire schedule from how you wake up to getting ready to your path of travel, down to your appointments, etc. I like to focus on positive outcomes of my sales appointments as well. This is one of my favorite good morning questions.
Have you ever mentally walked through your entire day? It is very fun and interesting. I try to visualize as much detail as possible. I see myself driving down the road to my next destination. It is amazing what pops into the picture while walking though the visualization process.
What Exercise Do I Want To Do This Morning?
Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. I think the best exercise is actually the one that is most convenient to you at that time. You don’t need any special equipment. If you began your day with just a nice brisk walk outside for 30 minutes, your body, mind, and spirit will reward you greatly.
What Book Do I Feel Like Reading This Morning?
Choose something motivational or uplifting and read for 10 to 20 minutes. I prefer to read an actual book during my morning routine. If you choose to read from portable devices, just be careful not to get sidetracked with online time wasters.
What Should I Write About This Morning?
I think a lot of people would like to journal, but don’t seem to have the discipline to do so. I’m talking about actually writing with a pen or pencil. We spend so much time on our electronic devices that I think our brain is actually refreshed when we pick up a good old pen and write. Sometimes, I write a card or a letter to a friend. People really enjoy getting a personally written note via snail-mail.
When I first started practicing the seven good morning questions that create happiness, I used the time to work on posting a blog. I wrote about business networking topics. I enjoy blogging, so it has been very rewarding for me to spend time on this type of creative outlet. It exercises my brain and I gain a tremendous amount of energy from writing.
What Steps Can I Take To Learn Something New This Morning
Do you want to learn a new language or further your knowledge of technology and social media? Mornings are a great time to work on learning something new. You will be surprised how much you can find out about a particular subject by spending just 10 or 15 minutes a day focused on learning.
