Ammo Posted by Dr. MO This the fourth post in a series about waking earlier and becoming more of a ‘Morning Person” that I am writing in the evening. I also write the daily early morning email, called AmMo, that is a part of the free membership of Maintain Momentum in which I am currently writing a slightly different of this post. If you want to receive AmMo, which I write to help people get going with momentum each day, click on the ‘Simple Assessment’ box, to the right, on this page.
Here at Maintain Momentum we are on a mission to change attitudes about Monday. We started the TGIM (Thank Goodness It’s Monday) Movement a while back, and frankly, to date, we have not created enough momentum for takeoff.
I want you to look forward to Mondays with more positivity, embracing it as the first day of the week where you can think thoughts such as…
” Thank goodness it’s Monday, now I can go back to doing work that I enjoy.”
or, “Thank goodness it’s Monday, now I can be with clients and co-workers I like.”
or, “you fill in the blanks”.
To help you develop this attitude, I’m going to continue the AmMo ‘Morning Person’ Series to help you go from the fuzziness of waking up to clarity and momentum in the morning.
Here are four more suggestions to help you go from asleep to awake and onto the path of Thank Goodness It’s Monday thinking. Tomorrow morning..
1. Make your bed right after you get up. You will find that once you have expended the energy to make your bed that it is effective at putting an end to your sleep as placing a period at the end of a sentence.
2. Go out into morning sun if the sun is up already, or go out into the gentle morning light if it is just before dawn or overcast. The sunlight and natural light will help you wake up.
3. Stretch, this will help you awaken gently, as well help you get your circulation going.
4. Put on some upbeat morning music and begin to move to it.
Use these strategies, along with the ones I have shared earlier, to get a leg up on the day by waking earlier.
I’ve been using them over the past two years to help me rise earlier and the results have been great. I get so much done and feel so good about it. By the time I leave for the office I’ve done so many things that in the past I either neglected or put off. I’m so much more up to date and on top of things.
Fill your day with Morning Person thinking and doing momentum, and together let’s build the TGIM Movement.
Repeat after me, “Thank Goodness It’s Monday.”, yes “Thank Goodness It’s Monday! It’s Great to be alive“.
May you be well…
