0 – Zero distractions
Start your day with zero distractions. Set your alarm to wake up 10-minutes earlier than normal, so you have uninterrupted time for your morning routine.
Zero distractions means don’t look at your phone first thing when you get out of bed. Avoid social, emails, notifications and texts for the first part of your day.
This is your time, prioritize your needs for these few minutes.
1- Drink a tall glass of water
Your body is dehydrated first thing in the morning. Drink a tall glass of water! You can add a drop of Lemon or Lime Vitality for a refreshing flavor.
2 – Find two things you are grateful for
Grab your Gratitude oil, add a drop or 2 in hand, take fingers of opposite hand and put in oil, rotate clockwise three times to activate - then apply over your heart, your hair, your pulse points. While you’re drinking your water, think of two things that you are grateful for. They can be simple things, like anticipating your first cup of coffee, that you have fresh clean water at the turn of the tap or even the quiet of the house before the day starts.
Feel the gratitude for your blessings. Being thankful makes us happier and we all want to be a little happier!
3 – Be quiet, meditate for 3-minutes 🧘🏼♀️🧘🏼♀️🧘🏼♀️
Set a timer, be quiet and sit for 3-minutes. You can diffuse Frankincense essential oil or Grounding essential oil blend. Spend the 3-minutes focused on your breath. Feel the breath enter through your nostrils, fill your lungs then notice the sensation as the air leaves your body.
4 – Move your body for 4 minutes
Stand up and move around. Stretch, do a few sun salutations, swing your arms back and forth, do some squats. It doesn’t matter what you do, just move and get your blood flowing.
That’s it 10-minutes and you’re ready to greet the day!
