We get out of bed
Do you stretch before getting out of bed?
Just a thought because it is a good idea and helpful for our systems
Do you wake up naturally or do you use an alarm?
If naturally then do you find thoughts coming into your head as you wake or do you take a while before thoughts come you way?
Do noises disturb you or do you sleep right through noises in the early mornings?
When you get out of bed do you have a fixed routine?
So many different ways to handle a simple yet important part of the day
If you are under stress then you can well wake up feeling tired
With a negative feeling about the coming day
If you have something nice in front of you then a totally different feeling
Sometimes you can't even sleep for the excitement
Or if traveling a nervousness about being late wakes us differently
As with most things in our life by themselves they might not seem important, however collectively all our little things add up to how we experience our lives
Getting out of bed starts us off every day
Consequently how we do it can shape our day
Try to start each day with pleasure at the idea of the day
Whatever it might bring is unknown to us when we get out of bed so better to treat it with pleased anticipation
This even if we are not looking forward to something because seldom do things work out as we imagine and having a more positive attitude might help change what comes our way
How it turns out is unknown but whether it is going to be good or bad it still makes sense to approach it positively
Taking the time once we are out of bed to meditate is not many peoples idea of how to start the day however if you do this even for five minutes you will find it makes a difference
Because it calms us down, settles our minds and puts them in a softer mode
Better still is to think about the coming day before going to sleep so that you know what has to be done and when
When we wake we have no pressure we know what we are doing
We do not start the day in a panic worrying and stressing about what has to be done
We get out of bed so many times in our lives that we hardly notice how we do so
Try being conscious as to how you start the day
Does it help or hinder you?
Review your daily start to the day and make it the first pleasure of the day
Not some mountain to climb full of worry and pressure
You get out of bed everyday
Do it better i
Improve your start to the day
