Start your day with meditation, journaling, and gratitude
Instead of grabbing your phone first thing after waking up, try and implement a different element into your morning routine. You could make yourself a fresh cup of tea and jot down your thoughts as well as things you want to get done on that day.
Maybe you want to write down an especially vivid dream you had the night before or make a list of the things you are grateful for. This is not an easy task when everything around you is layered with uncertainty, but there are probably still little things that put a smile on your face. Said fresh cup of tea for example, drinking from your favourite cup, the sunlight coming through your window, a good book, relaxing music. The list goes on.
Another way to begin your morning is to sit for a few minutes in silence and meditate. Whether you do that with the help of an app for a guided meditation or just by focusing on your breath is up to you. Give yourself these precious few minutes in the morning and you’re setting the tone for the day.
