Morning rituals can have a dramatic effect on your work, relationships, and overall health. Many people struggle with routines because we don’t understand why we should be regimented in how we wake up everyday. This can be the key to performing at a high level for top execs who want to hit those goals and feel better overall.
Daily routines are designed to help anchor goals and values to thoughts and actions. When behavior does not align with values we can feel out of sorts. We may value treating kids, spouse, or employees with respect but if you are impatient and lose your temper, you become quickly reactive and lose that value. We may be picking up counter-intuitive habits from the past that don’t support our growth, including the lack of well-designed morning rituals which help us garner focus.
Science of Ritual
Negative experiences which are emotionally intense or repetitive can sick in our brains. This forms our belief systems and perceptions of the world. Disempowering beliefs can become negative life habits. Repetition is how we learn so why not produce positive experiences, instead. If we focus on this scientific fact, we can produce better results for ourselves and our lives.
- Our bodies are designed to physiologically respond to our environment. When our posture, breathing, patterns of movement, and facial expressions align with what we want to feel and express, this helps build patterning in the brain. Using prayer, incantations or meditative words can help change your emotional state to something positive and proactive.
- Simplifying your routine to just the basics can help you focus and bring results. Start by choosing one practice, feed the brain an image that brings up emotions of this concept, get moving and start to take action.
- Making a growth schedule can do wonders for your morning ritual. Repeat the ritual every morning for a week or two until you feel ready and when you are, you can begin to incorporate another practice. This helps repattern the brain. When you are accountable to a schedule for yourself, you are more likely to see results of growth over time.
