How you wake up in the morning can really set the whole vibe for your day ahead. If you wake up and rush out to work or to ride it can seriously make your whole day feel totally rushed and panicked. If you wake up and sit around lazily it can leave your whole day feeling sluggish and unmotivated. If you have been finding it hard to keep up your motivation to ride and work towards your goals than maybe its time to look inward and focus on your own mindset before just making everything about riding itself.
Recently I was lucky enough to stumble across the amazing book by Hal Elrod called the Miracle Morning. I have since been waking up earlier than I ever thought that I would (I am a self proclaimed night owl through and through). I have been putting my phone away from my bed and making it so that when my alarm goes off I have to get up to turn it off. I have been spending an hour each morning checking off the 6 things that Hal has laid out in his book and it honestly has surprised me how much I am enjoying waking up in the mornings and how it is truly setting my whole day up to be so much more enjoyable and productive too. I’ve found that my energy levels have been much higher and I’ve been enjoying my rides with my horses so much more. If you are looking for ways to brighten your day than I would highly recommend the Miracle Morning. I personally downloaded it as an audio book as I just found it easy to put on and listen to in my car while I was driving or on my walks with my headphones on. If you aren’t in a position to buy the book but want to have a taste of it there are a lot of free resources on the website that you can use to help create your own miracle mornings.
I have enjoyed playing around and modifying the 6 steps that Hal wrote about to suit myself, but it is definitely working for me and I’m loving how much more excited I am for my goals and life in general. Having a morning routine is definitely something that anyone who is wanting to achieve any level of success in their lives should seriously consider doing.
