it been 8 hours since you had fluid, I can almost bet you didn’t have enough water yesterday or the day before that. Drinking a full glass of water first thing is reported to clear up your skin, flush out toxins, and up your metabolism.

Drink a Cup of Hot Water with Lemon – Lemon juice is high in Vitamin C which helps stimulate your digestive system, helps flush out fat, and helps boost your immune system. Consider swapping that first cup of coffee with this tasty drink and see what wonderful things it does for you.

Eat a Healthy Breakfast – Your body is an engine that needs the best possible fuel. Skipping breakfast or eating high sugary foods torpedoes your energy and mental clarity. Whatever your eating plan, make a great breakfast part of every day.

Breathe – There are many different types of breathing techniques. Some are used for relaxation and some are used to energize. Pick one you want to master and practice it every morning. If you want to rev up your morning routine then try the Bellows Breath technique. You inhale and exhale rapidly through your nose while keeping your mouth closed yet relaxed. Your inhales and exhales should be short but equal in duration. Try for three in-and-out cycles per second. This quick breathing makes the diaphragm look like a bellow, which is how it got its name. Do this rapid breathing for about 15 seconds at first and then breath normally. You can increase your cycle by 5 seconds increments until you can do this for a minute.


Write in Your Gratitude Journal – focusing on gratitude first thing shapes your day. You get off to a great mental start. It doesn’t have to be a marathon session – just write 3 new things that you are grateful for every morning. This will have a lasting effect because you will spend your day looking for wonderful things you can write down the next morning.

Write Morning Pages – Morning Pages are an exercise created by Julia Cameron. They are a stream-of-consciousness process that clears your mind every morning. Here is how she describes it, “Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of con- sciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages – they are not high art. They are not even ‘writing.’ They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind – and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.”

Notice Your First Thought – Notice that first thought you are consciously aware of. Is it positive? Is it negative? By being aware of what is typically your automatic, unconscious thought process you can uncover and upgrade the self-sabotaging thinking you were using to frame your day.

Script Your Day – Take a few minutes and write out exactly how you would like your day to go. Have a big meeting? Write out how you want it to go. Going on a sales call? Write out exactly
