Jump Start Your Morning

Do you start your day with a regular healthy routine? Research has shown that a healthy morning routine has the ability to increase your happiness and helps to ensure you have a successful productive day.

Jump starting your morning with a healthy routine sets the stage for you to establish a positive mindset that will benefit you throughout your day.

I have always been an early riser and I savor my time in the morning. When I first get up I like to sit in my favorite chair with a cup of coffee and feel the sun come up, there is so much magic all around. I meditate, I journal, I focus on connecting with myself.

Find the morning routine that works for you. Start with making small simple steps and see what or what doesn't work for you. Find what works for you and keep experimenting, you will find what is best for you.

Establishing a healthy morning routine can be difficult, it takes time and effort to perfect it.

Here are ten morning habits that I use and I find they give me a sense of overall well-being:

  1. Wake up at the same time every day: Having a consistent sleep schedule helps regulate your body. Waking up early allows for plenty of time to get ready for the day without rushing and tends to produce higher levels of positive mental health. Are you someone that has trouble getting up early? Here is a tip to try, gradually set your alarm clock earlier each day until you’ve reached your desired wake up time.

2. Meditate: Having a mindfulness practice of connecting with your breath and getting

grounded for the day. Connecting with your breath will help clear your mind and reduce your stress.

3. Do some journaling: Start your day with an attitude of gratitude take some time to journal on what you are grateful for in your life. Being grateful is one of the best practices you can do for yourself and others. The more you practice gratitude the more gratitude will show up in your day, it's the law of attraction.

4. Affirmations: The morning is a great time to practice your affirmations. A good practice is to have an affirmation journal and recite some of your favorite ones out loud and with enthusiasm. Create a positive energy of what you wish to create.

5. Wake up your body: Adopt a stretching routine or practice yoga. This will wake up your body and your muscles preparing them for your day. Do some stretching, go for a run, ride a bike, walk on your treadmill or go to the gym. Incorporating exercise into your routine helps to energize the body, wake up the mind and reduce stress.

6. Drink water: Drinking a glass of water in the morning will your body. Drink at least 8 glasses of water throughout your day. Drinking water helps to keep your metabolism active and healthy.

7. Eat a healthy breakfast: Starting your day with a healthy breakfast helps to fuel your body and gives you the nutrients you need to jump start your body and give you the energy you will need for the day. For long lasting energy eat a balanced breakfast with proteins, healthy fats and carbohydrates. Choose to avoid sugary sweets.

8. Plan your day: Set your intention for the day, how do you want your day to unfold, how can you best make that happen? Write out your to do list and prioritize your daily tasks this will increase your productivity and reduced stress.

9. Bring in some happiness: Do something you enjoy, something that makes you happy. Listening to uplifting podcasts or reading blogs, reading a book or listening to music. Do whatever gives you that feel good feeling you can take through the day. Try to limit screen time and focus on positive activities that promote relaxation and well-being.

10. Connect with loved ones: If possible eat breakfast with your family. Let the people in your life know you care and encourage them to have a positive happy day. Give them a boost they can take into their day. Boosting others helps to give you a boost for the day too.

Remember, habits take time to form, so be patient and persistent in your efforts to create your best healthy morning routine. Be gentle with yourself and know that by incorporating healthy habits into your morning routine you are jump starting your energy, your focus and your whole day.

Creating a healthy morning routine is an important part of a successful day. Take the time to establish a routine that works for you and can help to ensure you are starting off each day in the best possible way.

Wendy's words for you.....It has been my pleasure to write this blog for you, I hope you have found some helpful tips you can fit into your busy morning. It has always amazed me that my Mom would be up and have breakfast made for all nine of us each morning. She knew the benefit of a regular morning routine for sure. I have many fond memories of getting up early and having a healthy breakfast with my parents before heading off to school and them to work. I sure see the value of the time we had to connect before we started our day.

Ashlee and I have both completed our Access Bars Practitioner course so we are able to practice this unique and transformational procedure. We are both planning to move forward to acquire our Access Bars Facilitator certificate and we will be able to teach others how to perform the procedure.

We are also working on teaching an online course on how to increase your happiness. We are hoping to launch this before the end of April. Ashlee's book How to Transforming Your Life in 40 Days is doing very well. You can check it out on We are very grateful for everyone for supporting Ashlee on her first book.
