I was wondering about my
Body , Mind and Soul ( BMS)...
whenever they are in sync , I feel confident , powerful and more in my control ...
And whenever my Body Mind & Soul (BMS) are not in sync, I can make out that all parts of mine are not 100% together.
How To Keep Your Body Mind & Soul (BMS)
In Your Control ?
Once you are clear about your motivational direction , You should start building habits which keep you motivated and charged throughout...
How to Find your Motivation Direction ...
Towards Gain Or Away From Pain
Two individuals get up in the morning and go to Gym .
1. First feels that , " I go to Gym , becoz I want to build my muscles and look strong and confident" - TOWARDS GAIN
2. Second feels that , " I go to Gym, becoz I don't want to look bulky and don't want to be surrounded with diseases " - AWAY FROM PAIN
Both have same objective ( Gyming) , but means to motivate themselves are different...
I am more of Towards Gain type , so I look forward to my early morning rituals which keep me healthy and agile throughout the day ...
I am sharing some of my core secret morning rituals , which I am sure, may benefit you..
1. WAKE UP EARLY
Though my alarm clock is set at 4.45am , but generally I get up just before it's about to buzz .. Getting up before time gives me the space to finish my morning routines, so that I don't have to rush later.
After my morning routines , I spend at least 45 minutes on reading blogs , latest articles on leadership , and these days I am reading Gita... My fresh mind in the morning just absorbs everything that I read and remains forever.
3. OPENING UP CURTAINS
I open up my bedroom curtains every morning , it just brightens my day with the fresh light on my face and takes away all the slumber
4. 60 MINUTES SPORTS
I ensure that I spend at least 60 minutes on my fitness levels in a day and sometimes more as well ..
Excercises helps in increasing blood flow in our circulatory system, which removes toxins and other harmful material .
In other words fresh oxygen intake increases and toxins are kicked out
5. FIVE MINUTES
Post my game , I ensure to relax my body for 5 minutes ( this includes walking on the park barefoot for 2 to 3 minutes) .. this not only helps in relaxing my muscles but also my mind and my thoughts ... Eventually it prepares me better for the whole day
6. DRINKING 1 GLASS OF WARM WATER
Earlier, it used to be only 1 glass of warm water , but every alternate day , I take lemon and honey ( sometimes with Ginger in winters)
This makes me feel better , more energized, and ...less thirsty
7. LISTEN TO UPBEAT MUSIC
Music is a powerful mood changer , I don't go by any particular artist ... I listen anything and everything that makes me feel happy ( particularly while taking shower) .Upbeat music enhances my emotional , mental and physical state ...
8. CHECK MY TO-DO LIST
Though I do not give too much focus on my daily to-do list ( bcoz I focus on my weekly objectives) , but I do check and update my to do list every morning - this helps me to prioritize items for the day
9. ENJOY REFRESHING SHOWER !
A shower generally take 8 to 10 min, its upto us how we make it Refreshing and it's not just cleaning your body but also of feeling good inside ...
Days when I just take the shower very quickly , it's an indication that my morning has not started the way it is suppose to be and this reflects through out the day. It also affect the hygiene part ..
Why Its Important To Build Positive Morning Rituals ?
1. To condition yourself to start your day in a positive way
2. To feel energetic and radiate the positive energy
3. To feel Happy , Greatful and loving
4. To be more productive and achieve more
5. To rejunivate Body , Mind and Spirit
Does your morning rituals energize you every morning or it's just another morning ?
You just wake up your body and start your day ! What about your mental and spiritual wake up !
You may not need to so many things , but start building small HABITS... like
1. Breathing Excercises
2. Start with 2 minutes meditation
3. A short walk for 10 minutes
4. Recite affirmations while taking shower
5. Listen to some soothing music
Most of these activities does not take long..
