Hello Patricia Longwright,
I wake up grateful that I am healthy and able to see, hear, touch, feel, smell and move. After taking in all those senses while thinking of loved ones, I do some stretches before getting out of the warm, cozy, comfy bed. This gets me going in the right direction for the rest of the day.
At the end of the day, I prepare for rest by vegging out with thoughts of the day and what I am grateful for happening.
Take care and get a good night’s rest while looking forward to the future.
For my wife and I we meditate for about 20 minutes before we go to bed. It helps to clear our heads and focus on the next day. This way when we wake up we are already in the right mind set for the day. We also make sure we wake with enough time to get ready with out having to rush. I also like to do about 10 minutes of body weighted exercise in the morning to help get everything moving. coffee is good also. I agree with what others have said- say 3 positive things about yourself, or expressing gratitude is great!!
