Create a morning routine you are in love with

Apr 12, 2021

Getting up in the early morning with a bright smile, totally refreshed from your good night sleep, ready to conquer the world and have the best mood ever, THAT'S the goal, right? : )

I hope you know me better by now. I don't like commercial clichés. I like personalized habits and processes, timelines, dreams and visions. No "one solution for everybody"!

Are you a morning person or a night owl? Not defined? I remember so well, how I cursed the whole world, when I had my first temporary job in the countryside of Lucerne with a 90minutes long commute. I had to get up at 5:45 AM and that was pure insanity to me. Having a FIVE on my alarm setting drove me nuts and I was really pissed, every single morning... (that was ehmmmmm 17 years ago!) I dove out of bed into public transportation with breakfast in the tram, while reading a free newspaper full of shitty news. In Swiss trains, there is a little sofa on each side of the normal seats, so I slept there for another hour with the alarm underneath my coat and my ticket ready to see for the conductor on the little round table in front of me.   

And now? I love to go to bed as early as 8pm or 9pm if it's late. Later is a NO GO, because I WANT to get up early. Ronja from 2003 would have hit me in the face, if I would have whispered to her: "Darling, in 10 years, you'll love to get up at 4:44, because you want to have your sacred me-time"

At the moment (and I think forever) my focus is to get 8hours of sleep. The benefits of my concentration and focus all day long is just incredible! So there is not much room for bed-time-negotiations with myself, if I want to get up around 5. Nothing is set in stone and I didn't sign any contract, except with ME. What I do in my morning magic is different every day too. I tell you my favorite things to do in the video.

Watch it and find out, what YOU want to do in the morning, so that you can start in your day with space in your mind and time to BE. You decide how much time you want to gift yourself. You decide what's important or beneficial or energy bringing to you!
Will you tell me about your morning magic on instagram? Please tag me with @joyismycompass Do you prefer writing into the comments? Or you book the Joy Academy and watch the big fat masterclass about morning magic and share your take on it in the wonderful community, where you can team up with others to hold each other accountable (if that's what you want). Being surrounded by like-minded people, who are on their way to their personal dreamlife too, that's the BEST! Step by step, while you enjoy, what is in the here and now.
