Vibe of The Week: Make Your Morning Work for You!

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for an even better week!  Morning is such a precious time of day, everything is crisp, fresh and open for possibility.  It's an important time to prepare for a successful day as well.  Having a morning routine will not only help your focus but it will allow you to face the day with calmness and an inner peace.  We don’t want to be frazzled in the morning because that sets us up for a frazzled day, we want to be focused and mentally ready to accomplish and adapt to whatever the day brings.  We can’t prepare for what is going to happen, we can only prepare ourselves.  So what is your morning routine like?

A few things that I find to be really helpful in the morning are having a set of non-negotiables, you do this every morning no matter where you are.

1) Wake up with an attitude of gratitude.  When you place your feet on the ground, say, think and feel what you are grateful for, it can be anything!  We always have room for more gratitude in our life and starting the day being grateful sets a positive tone.

2) Hydrate!  No exceptions.  All Get Your Vibes clients drink at least 24-32 ounces of room temperature to warm water with lemon every morning.  After sleeping it is especially important to start the day with water, nothing else before the water should go in your body.  If you're on the road make sure you have water with you and a lemon if you'd like, I travel with both and I always feel like it helps me stay on track with I travel with my water and lemon.

3) Have some quiet time.  Whether it’s to journal, meditate or make a to-do list, setting aside 20-30 minutes to gather your thoughts, quiet the mind and mentally check in with yourself is extremely important.  This will help you think more clearly, see things as the really are and help you react or not react to things.  A chaotic mind is a mind that makes mistakes, quiet the mind so that you can think clearly and be creative.

4) Do not check emails or social media right away, wait!  Many of us sleep with our phones close to our bed because of the convenience of an alarm clock, so we are tempted to lay in bed and check emails, IG, FB, and maybe like a tweet or two all before we even get out of bed?!  Nope, that’s no way to start the day.  You want to feel refreshed and have a clear mind before attending to any emails.  

I hope these simple but easy to include tips

Vibe of The Week: Believe you are worthy of your dreams

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

If we aren't living aware, mindful lives, it's easy to get caught up in the mundane and just to go through the motions.  But, when we are present and mindful, we don't experience the bore of the day to day, we are open to possibilities and see opportunities.  This is extremely important when it comes to our dreams and accomplishing them.  We must live in the mindset of having of not only having our dreams but that we are truly worthy of them, it must be a belief so strong that it is never questioned. 

When live in the present we are able to be aware of our thoughts and we catch ourselves in moments of self-doubt or negative thoughts.  It's in those moments that we have the power of positive choice and to change the way we think.  Develop the habit of replacing doubtful thoughts with empowering affirmations that lead you closer to your dreams. 

This isn't meant to be hard but we want to release the resistance we have when it comes to believing we are worthy of the most abundant life possible.  Society and negative people will have you programmed to think that you aren't able to achieve everything you want.  But, we simply know that's false and driven by the human ego.  You have so much power that exists within, use it, grow it, trust it. 

Don't waste another day living a life that isn't one you've dreamed of, make a change, believe it, work for it and watch it manifest.  Change your thoughts and you change your life!

Vibe of The Week: Habits.

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

Habits, we all have them, we’ve broken them and built better ones, or gotten off track and formed unhealthy ones.  Habits are a reflection of what we repeatedly do.  Have you purposely built your habits or have you got caught up in the mundane or routine and unknowingly formed unhealthy habits?  We want you to start paying attention to your life on purpose.  Every thought leads to a choice, that choice leads to an action and that action can form a habit, hopefully a habit that has been created by intention with meaning and drive behind it.

What you repeatedly tell yourself is a habit, how you speak to yourself has a huge impact on the choices you make.  Habitually think, empowering, confident, thoughts and that will lead to strong and confident choices.  Last week's Vibe was awareness, let’s use that awareness to look at our habitual patterns and see where we can do better by breaking old habits that no longer serve us.  Think of this as a way to strengthen your choice muscle.  Each time you enhance and change your way of thinking and are making stronger choices, this will lead to stronger results. So strengthen that choice muscle!

Spring, has a new energy to it, things feel fresh and ready to bloom, it’s a great time to not only clean out material items but thoughts, choices, patterns and habits that do nothing for us.  Take some time to sit with yourself, and think about where you can be better and break an outmoded cycle, maybe have a pen and paper on hand to write down all the ways you plan on building positive and strong habits that will help you achieve your goals and have a more defined path to all that you want in life!
