While it can be challenging, you should never start your day in a rush or even dread mornings.
They are supposed to be the best part of the day.
We’ve got just the right morning inspiration ideas for you to let this new approach to the early hours of the day also turn all other areas of your life around.
In this article, you’ll learn why mornings are critical to not just how your day goes, but your entire life.
Then, you’ll see how you can tap into your subconscious mind in order to make the most of the first hour of your day.
All that will result in success in your career, health, productivity and you’ll be much more likely to see progress on your personal goals if you are inspired every morning and ready to start the day positively.
Three steps to get you there:
Step 1: Set yourself up for a successful week with Monday morning inspiration
What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you wake up in the morning every Monday?
What kind of thoughts do you let in your mind, and what are the first actions you take when you leave bed?
Most people admit they hate Mondays.
In fact, the Monday Blues are a real condition.
Some blame it on the job, others on life. But you can’t keep living this way. A shift in your mindset is all you need, and you don’t need to wait longer to start this transformation.
It can happen tomorrow morning.
You might roll your eyes when finding out that the solution to most of your problems lies in finding morning inspiration. But it’s true.
The mood and mindset you wake up with can keep you positive, peaceful and energetic for the whole day.
If you manage to keep it up, then you’re guaranteeing yourself a pretty productive and successful week, month, and even a whole life.
It all begins with Mondays, though. And that’s why we need to find a way to have some Monday morning inspiration to start the week right.
Prepare for Monday morning the day before.
So, the morning inspiration you’re looking for is already inside you. That’s a pretty comforting thought.
You need the right reasons and emotions to get it out and let it turn you into an optimistic and motivated individual, ready to reach your goals no matter what.
Let Sunday evening be a wind down period, but also a phase of mental preparation for the next week.
Remind yourself of your ‘why’. That includes the things you deeply care about, why you do what you do, where you’re headed, and what things are coming your way.
Actually, these should be part of your morning routine too, but more on that later.
If you look at things from another perspective, you’ll find out that Monday isn’t the problem. And it’s not your job, either.
It’s just that you might not be satisfied with your current situation in life, and so you need to make some changes.
You’ve got all it takes to transform, and that can be yet another motive to start waking up earlier from now on.
So why wake up earlier?
The reasons why you’ll want to become an early riser are countless.
As many studies suggest, this one lifestyle change can boost your career, mental and physical health.
But the reason why we’re including this step here, is that it’s closely related to finding the right morning inspiration for you that will become your driving force and help you see progress with all your endeavors.
There’s something magical about the early hours of the day.
For a start, you’re on your own and don’t have anything else to do. For most people, that’s the only opportunity to have some ‘me’ time, enjoy the silence, and find some peace.
It’s also when you can think clearly, take some big decisions, get creative, find your purpose, or identify your next career move, and much, much more.
Imagine that’s how you start your Mondays, instead of hitting the snooze button, waking up in a bad mood, and rushing through the door.
To avoid that, and instead begin your week (and every next day) inspired and determined to do some productive work, set your alarm for earlier tomorrow and have some peaceful time before your start the day.
Step 2: Boost positivity by saying good morning quotes out loud.
You’re probably familiar with the power of positive affirmations. Well, there’s a way to let this influence your subconscious mind even more.
If you feed your mind with positive images and words right after you open your eyes in the morning, there is no other choice but to make the law of attraction work for you, and bring you only the people and circumstances that will take you closer to your vision.
Let’s do this right.
When you wake up earlier tomorrow morning, grab a pen and paper and write down some optimistic sentences about your current and future life.
Think of what you want to achieve in the near future, and write it as if it’s already true.
You’ll feel an instant motivation boost, and that will be the foundation of your morning inspiration (it will also stay with you for the rest of the day).
Turn this into a whole morning ritual.
Rituals are powerful.
They help you build discipline by doing the same thing every morning, but also help you identify what works best and do more of it.
It’s hard in the beginning, till you build it as a habit.
Once it’s developed though, you do it effortlessly and can see results in all areas of life.
Let your morning ritual look like this: wake up earlier, welcome the day and accept it as a new opportunity to get some work done, meet some fantastic people, excel in your career, and make the world a better place.
Then, read your list of positive affirmations, to remind yourself of where you want to be some time from now and keep your mind focused on this path. Add to that a short session of reading good morning quotes out loud.
All this is a killer combination for positivity that will set you up for a successful day.
Step 3: Get inspired in the morning by embracing gratitude.
Morning inspiration can also be found by developing an attitude of gratitude. What that means is constantly reminding ourselves of what we have, and looking forward to the many good things that are about to enter our life.
This means we will suddenly begin living in abundance without changing anything. And that’s a game-changer when talking about starting each day motivated, and then being productive till the evening.
If you study the daily rituals of some of the most successful people, you’ll quickly find some tendencies. One of them being that they have a ritual for expressing gratitude on a daily basis.
That could be by keeping a gratitude journal and stating a few things they’re thankful for every morning and/or evening.
It could be expressing your inner peace and happiness for all that you’ve been given by practicing mindfulness. Meaning, you teach yourself how to stop every now and then during the day, breathe deeply and look around, smile for what is, and truly enjoy who you are and what you’re surrounded by.
That will soon change the way you look at other things, such as relationships, problems at work, the uncertainty of life, bad lifestyle choices, etc.
By feeling deeply thankful, you’ll improve all these and enjoy the process, instead of seeing it as a struggle.
Morning motivation will become the foundation of your behavioral change.
We first need to change our mind.
It then affects our actions, and the end result can be seen in real life.
By waking up inspired, energized and grateful every single morning (and doing it earlier than you have to), you’ll keep your priorities straight and will take the right decisions and actions for the whole day.
Then, in the evening you’ll feel good about yourself. A good practice to add to this is reviewing your day and seeing what went right, and thinking of ways to perform better tomorrow.
These success habits help you build momentum.
By doing such practices in the beginning and end of every day, you won’t be distracted by anything less important going on in your life and won’t be tempted to pursue other goals that aren’t right for you.
All that starts by being awake in the early hours, and finding morning inspiration.
