Yesterday, I spent a large part of the day worrying about today. Sunday into Monday.
My day started off fine. However, the anxiety started to creep in pretty early and my first instinct was to hide. My first instinct was to let my boss know that I wouldn’t be coming in the following day. These are shadows from past habits. In the past, if I didn’t like a situation, or if it caused me anxiety, I would avoid it entirely.
However, before I could send that text to my boss, I made a choice. I decided that not only would I show up in the next day, I would also take complete control of my day, of my mood, of my mind, and ROCK it. Anxiety, fear, wanting to hide… that is not a high vibe lifestyle. Sure, it’s normal and natural to feel those feelings. However, you don’t want to FEED those feelings and give them permission to grow. People are depending on me to show up today. More importantly, I need to show up for myself today.
So I made a choice.
One of the best ways that I knew how to immediately take that control was to take back my evening and morning routines, which I had let slide during the past few weeks. So last night, before bed, I put away my phone an hour before bedtime, I did some reading, listened to some binaural beats, diffused some lavender… did all the things that I knew would give me an amazing, high vibe sleep.
Then, this morning, I jumped out of bed at 6am because I knew that my rejuvenating, high vibe morning routine was about to begin. Now [spoiler], I’m currently working on a little something for all of you with more details about morning routines so I won’t go into too many details. However, I can say that I love morning routines so much and I really do think that they should be a non-negotiable behaviour in everyone’s life.
I’m actually currently in the midst of my morning routine since, after hydration, meditation, movement and making a coffee, my routine includes writing. My brain is ON FIRE in the morning and that’s when my inspiration, motivation and creativity are highest.
Yesterday, I didn’t think I’d be able to show up on Monday. But, instead of letting fear win, I took control, I took ACTION (definitely an important factor here!), and now I can actually FEEL how magical this day is going to be. Happy Monday!
