How to Wake Up Feeling Inspired Everyday

How to Wake Up Feeling Inspired Everyday

How you start your day has a really big impact on how your day will pan out. If you wake up feeling dreadful and are then really lazy then that’s how the rest of your day will be. However, if you wake up and you meditate and be pro-active then you’ll have a very inspiring day. It is known that so many CEO’s start their day rising early. They’ll fit in their active routines consisting of exercise, reading, meditating. They don’t just laze about in bed waiting for their 10th alarm to go off. They start their day with how they visualise the rest of the day to be. And that’s why they are successful at what they do. So start your day early and nurture some of the below habits and see where the day takes you!

1 // Create a routine and stick to it

Us humans, we like routine, that’s why once you get a habit it is hard to break away from it. But not all habits are negative. If you can wake up every morning, and do the same simple steps, you’ll make early mornings a breeze. If that’s having a cup of coffee and going for a morning walk, or writing in your gratitude journal. Stick to your routine and you’ll soon feel inspired to wake up rather than dreading leaving your bed. I personally like to do a morning skincare routine so I feel refreshed and hydrated. I’ll make a smoothie filled with superfoods and then do some meditation or yoga when it is booked in.ย wake up feeling inspired

2 // Do yoga or meditation

Lots of people really enjoy meditating as soon as they wake up and I think it because our brains are just waking up and we don’t have a million thoughts rushing through our mind. This allows us to separate ourselves from our thoughts, focus on our breathing and relax. And by just having these 5-10 minutes to relax and be mindful it will really set your day up for positivity. With yoga, I enjoy the aspect of exercise whilst also just focusing on breathing. I’m clearing my mind from everything but my breath and the movements. But I’m also stretching my body and being active which will create a very inspiring mindset for the day. However, if you enjoy something a bit more intense than yoga, why not exercise. By getting your blood flowing and creating endorphins you’ll be inspired to conquer the day and tackle anything life throws at you.

3 // Visualisation

Either before bed or when I wake up I like to write out a to-do list of all the things I would like to accomplish for that day. Once you have this list, you can visualise yourself completing the tasks. Be it working out extremely hard at the gym or eating all meals as healthy and nutritious as you can. By visualising your day with the best outcomes it has a really big impact on how inspired you will feel. This is because you have already set out how you would like your day to occur, and therefore your brain already knows the best ways to act and talk throughout the day.

4 // Stay away from social media

As I’ve previously mentioned in my most recent post on self-love, social media is a burden. And if you wake up and check it straight away it won’t do you any good. If we are obsessing over what other people are doing rather than kickstarting the day, then there was no point waking up early. So wake up, turn off your alarm, pop on some inspiring music or meditate and get started with your day. And leave social media until you’ve checked off a few of the things on your t0-do list.

Hopefully, this has inspired you to wake up that extra 30 minutes early to create some habits that will not only inspire you for that day but change your outlook on life. These are things that have really helped me get out of bed without feeling tired and dull, rather I feel like I’m taking charge of my day and feel motivated.

    Love this! I always like to have my day planned so I know what I’m doing and what needs to be done. I love the idea of 10 minutes of yoga every morning though!xx

      There’s some great videos on YT for yoga videos, hope you can find some way to incorporate it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Iโ€™m loving your photos so much! I think a routine can be so important, like I always do a night time skincare routine because it helps me to feel all chilled out and cosy so it helps me to sleep better. Now if only I could get used to a routine of going to the gym after work every day! x

      Thank you so much Alice! Also maybe find another time to go, I know we might think it’s most convenient to go straight after work, but if we aren’t motivated to do it then clearly it isn’t the best time. Try and find the best time for you and you’ll stick to it more ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    I love me a good old routine, but lol at me waking up this morning to catch up on social media to find this post ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ll have to turn a new leaf tomorrow, but a really helpful post! Xx

    I absolutely detest waking up in the morning and having to get out of bed and I’m a nightmare for checking my phone and relying on it to fully wake me up! I love doing Yoga and I attend a class every Wednesday evening with my best friend xo

    I would really love to start getting into doing yoga, I can be such a stress head and feel guilty about not getting all the things done that I need to so I think yoga would be a great calming exercise for me! Totally need to take your social media tip and put it into practise too…

    These are great tips! I always write a to do list for the next day before bed but I need to try visualising my day as well. I’d love to try yoga too, I hate exercising in the morning but I think yoga might be a nice start to the day ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    I need to pick up some habits from here! I definitely can see how these are helpful and useful. I need to try out yoga as well since I hear itโ€™s pretty useful

    Great advice! I definitely agree with waking up early, it makes such a difference to my day when I’m up at 7am rather than laying in bed until 10am. I love routines, they give me a very nice feeling of security and comfort. I need to try and start visualising my days now, it’s a great idea.

    Itโ€™s so weird but I legit do this minus the stay away from social media, but I do tend to stay away from WhatsApp. I love starting the day meditating it makes me feel so relaxed! I also love write lists and planning out a routine x

    I’m so bad at checking my social media first thing. It’s literally one of the first things I do when I wake up and it’s a really tricky habit to kick!

    Great tips, I really need to start doing some of these, I’m terrible at mornings!

    Love this little list! I think I will start not checking SoMe until later in the day! I got this habit from my hubby but you are right, even if we try not to compare, it plants that self doubt there in your subconscious!
