My Morning Routine
I firmly believe that how we start our day shapes our entire experience, so I want to share some of the practices I include in my morning routine as rituals of self-care and alignment. These habits are short, practical, and entirely doable for even the busiest of mornings. Here is my morning routine designed to infuse my being with positivity and set me up for a day of abundance.
Manifestation & Guided Meditation
I begin my day by creating a sacred space, a sanctuary for my dreams to unfold. Starting my morning routine with the art of guided meditation, I visualise the life I desire, aligning my intentions with the universe. This practice opens my heart to the infinite possibilities that lie ahead. By immersing myself in the energy of manifestation, I cultivate a positive mindset and attract synchronicities that align with my deepest desires. This way I set the tone and intention for a day filled with abundance and purpose.
Taking a moment in my morning routine to appreciate even the small things, like a warm cup of herbal tea or the awakening of a new day, is essential. Writing down three things I’m grateful for anchors me in appreciation, shifting my focus to the abundance around me. This part of my morning routine nurtures a grateful heart, infusing my day with positivity and grace. It transforms the mundane into the extraordinary, lightening life’s burdens. Embracing and celebrating the small things cultivates a spirit of gratitude, reminding us of the abundant blessings that enrich our lives.
Alternate Nostril Breathing
Harmony and balance are essential to navigating the twists and turns of life. Through the practice of alternate nostril breathing, I harmonise the flow of energy within me. By gently alternating between each nostril, I cleanse and balance my energy channels, creating a sense of inner equilibrium. This practice cultivates a calm and centred state of mind, allowing me to approach challenges with grace and clarity. As I’ve mentioned before, this is one of my favourite breathwork techniques, perfect for centering yourself for a day filled with balance and serenity.
Breath of Fire
To awaken my inner vitality and stoke the flames of inspiration, I embrace the powerful Breath of Fire during my morning routine. Sitting with a straight spine and a grounded presence, I place my hands on my belly. Taking quick, rhythmic breaths through my nose, I focus on the forceful exhalation. This dynamic breathwork energises my body, invigorates my senses, and ignites my creative fire. It is a potent elixir that infuses me with renewed vigour, empowering me to approach the day with enthusiasm and confidence.
Singing & Dancing in the Shower
Not only a place for cleansing and purifying, showers can also be the perfect moment to unleash your joyful inner child. I sing and dance to my heart’s content, letting both the water and melody wash over my body and soul, and revelling in the vibrations the music sends through me. It’s the perfect addition to any morning routine for a boost in your mood and energy as you prepare to take on the challenges of the day.
This morning routine may seem simple, yet its impact is profound. Remember, these habits are not extravagant or time-consuming. They are gentle reminders to prioritise self-care and create space for the magic within us. By dedicating a few precious moments of your morning routine to connect with ourselves, we nurture our minds, bodies, and spirits. May your mornings be filled with gratitude and balance, guiding you towards a day of abundance and fulfilment.
