How did your morning go today? Did it get you started off on a great foot for the rest of your day? Or was it not so awesome? And then set the tone for the rest of your day. And Mama’s Daily Dose is.. how to get the most out of your morning. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. And if you aren’t super satisfied with your days, and you want your days to get better, look at your morning. The key to a better day lies in your morning, and it lies in you being intentional. I’m not saying you need to set up this big routine that you have to do every single morning. I’m just talking about being intentional in the morning, and how you want to feel for that day. Being intentional means that you set the intention of what you want to bring to the table that day. How do you want to feel?
So every morning I ask myself, “How do I want to feel and make others feel?” This takes maybe 10 seconds. I will feel joyful today, I will feel present today, I will feel grateful today, I will feel energetic today. Whatever the word is for you pick that emotion. Remember that emotion gets you IN motion. And just being intentional and saying that to yourself. That’s going to set you up for the remainder of the day. Because you’ve already told yourself, hey, this is how I’m going to feel today. And remind yourself throughout the day too, sometimes you’re going to slip out of it. It happens to me all the time. But then I take a moment, I remind myself, I have other reminders to remind me too which I’ll let you in on that secret on Friday. But take the time in the morning to be intentional.
Mama, your action today is to ask yourself, “How do you want to feel? And how do you want to make others feel today?” Be intentional. Think of a word just one word that you want to feel and that emotion will get you IN motion. It will get you intentional on that’s how you want to feel for the rest of the day. Instead of just feeling whatever’s coming your way because you have that internal locus of control. You get to write your story and you can choose how you want to feel. And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
