4 Tips To Start Your Day In A Blissful State Of Mind

How you wake up in the morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.Does a typical day for you start by waking up 30 minutes late after you hit the snooze button one too many times, rushing around the house, sipping your coffee, ironing your clothes before racing out the door with your burnt toast in your hands or do you wake up, meditate, go for a run, and eat a healthy breakfast before heading out the door right on time.

If we begin the day feeling frustrated and tired chances are the day will continue in the same way. How would you like to wake up every day feeling ecstatic?

I want to share with you the best morning ritual I have ever encountered, guaranteed to make you feel ready for anything. If you don’t believe me I implore you to give it a go for the next 7 days.

 

Step 1: Choose 3 songs that you love to listen to

The first song is your gratitude song – all of the things you are grateful for in life; the second song is your power song that energises you and gives you a mini workout at the same time; lastly, the third song is your spiritual song. This song is representative of who you are as a person and the goals you want to achieve in life.

“Gratitude opens the door to… the power, the wisdom, the creativity of the universe. You open the door through gratitude”. – Deepak Chopra

Step 2: Write down negative beliefs

Once you have chosen your three songs. The next step is to think of six negative beliefs you have about yourself. By asking yourself the following questions you will be able to ascertain your current negative beliefs that are holding you back.

What do you beat yourself up about? What is a problem in your life that you want to solve? Are you having trouble believing in yourself to achieve a goal? What is an obstacle you are facing at present?

Write down on a piece of paper the six negative beliefs you have about yourself that are holding you back from achieving your goals and that you would like to change.

 

Step 3: Change the negatives to positives

Rearrange your negative beliefs in order of importance from one to six, starting with the belief you would most like to change. The next step involves changing each of those negative beliefs into a positive belief. Write down all of your positive beliefs on a new piece of paper.

Then burn the piece of paper with the negative beliefs on it. Burning is a powerful release ritual that has been used for centuries. The idea of burning your negative beliefs is that it is a representation of what you wish to release from your life. You are burning what you want to let go of from the past in order for you to move forward and create a brighter future.

Change your thoughts

Step 4: Every morning play the 3 songs in the following order – gratitude, power and spiritual song

During the gratitude song, think of everything you are grateful for in your entire life; people, places, animals, nature, your home, family,  or car. Absolutely everything you can think of.

Now for the fun part, during the power song, dance and jump around saying the positive beliefs you wrote down continuously until the end of the song. The idea is for the positive beliefs to get into your body. For you to really feel the words that you are speaking so they are ingrained into your being.

During the last song – the spiritual song, this is your time for future pacing. Visualise all of your dreams coming true as though they are real right here and now. Visualize the sounds, smells, tastes and most importantly feel how you will feel when they come true. Creating the emotion you will feel and visualizing every detail of your dream is the most important element of future pacing.

“Future pacing allows a person to see, hear, feel and experience what they would like to manifest through experiencing it, it imprints itself within the subconscious mind” – Donald Currie

This is definitely the best morning ritual in the world. It is guaranteed to make you feel truly alive which creates a feeling of ecstasy – it is simply the best way to start your day.

Sometimes, life doesn’t seem to make any sense. Albert Einstein once said “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Here’s the funny thing. We will say that line about someone else, have a good chuckle, and then DO THE SAME THING OURSELVES! This time, it’s not that funny, is it? I know. I’ve done it myself. (more…)

4 Reasons Why Content Is Pivotal For Mental Health Healing

One of the most important things for an entrepreneur’s mental health is expressing their feelings, thoughts, and emotions. This is where content creation and writing becomes pivotal. Whether you read something that resonates with you or you write a compelling blog post, the act of expressing yourself through content can help to put a smile on your face and make you feel better about things.

Most entrepreneurs don’t spend as much time taking care of their mental health as they should. Over the course of your career, you will experience a lot of ups and downs; these emotions have the potential to take a toll on your mind and body if you don’t learn to manage them properly.

Here are four reasons why expression through content is pivotal for healing, slowing yourself down, and giving yourself grace when the going gets tough.

1. Content can be a form of self-expression

When you are an entrepreneur, you frequently face feelings of insecurity, doubt, fear, apathy, and exhaustion, just to name a few. Some days it feels like no one is on your business’s side and everyone else has it all figured out. On those days some of us try to look at our website’s analytics to cheer up. 

But an even more freeing task is creating content. You create content to improve your business and reach more people’s lives. But, there is something special that happens when you write with the intention of expressing your thoughts and feelings — you open a door to yourself. 

Content is inherently personal, which means content creators open themselves up when they share their thoughts on a platform. Everything from the title of the post, the keywords they choose to include, and even the content itself helps you to understand who the author of that post truly is. And as an entrepreneur, this can be an important experience because it allows others to empathize with you.

2. Self-reflection will lift you up

As you think through what to write about and how to express yourself, the process of self reflection is a valuable step you need to go through. You’re able to reflect on the blessings you have, assess what you learned from the negative experiences, and create a plan on how to maintain the positive experiences you’ve had. 

There are a few ways that self reflection can help you with mental health healing. The act of reflecting on your experiences helps to create clarity in feelings, thoughts and emotions which will eventually lead into acceptance for what has happened or is happening currently without feeling overwhelmed by it all. This process also leads people towards finding new things they enjoy doing. Self reflection is therapeutic and can be implemented anytime you feel the need to overcome overwhelm.

“Writing in a journal each day allows you to direct your focus to what you accomplished, what you’re grateful for and what you’re committed to doing better tomorrow. Thus, you more deeply enjoy your journey each day.” – Hal Elrod

3. A sense of belonging and camaraderie

It is important to have a support network of people who will listen and understand what you are going through. When you post a blog or upload a video on YouTube, there are others who feel the same way and experience a sense of connection with you.

When you put time, attention and thoughtfulness into your writing, it is amazing when someone reads what you’ve written and comments on it thanking you or expressing how they resonate with what you’re going through. It’s hard to put into words how powerful it feels when someone who has gone through the same experience and reads your words then reaches out.  There is power in expression but miracles happen when people bond over a similar experience.

4. Library of content to share with more people

It can be very difficult to know what content to share with people as the symptoms of mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.) vary from person to person. But as you accumulate more and more content, this will increase the number of articles or videos available for readers to choose from depending on their specific purpose. It also builds your personal library of resources you’re able to share to different people you encounter or engage directly with.

As chaotic and distracting social media can be, it can also be a beacon of hope with the right content. Many people share viral posts, or content that interest them. Since your content is valuable and personal, the more you share it, the more likely it is to be shared with the right audience.

You never know who is watching (reading)

Your content is speaking to someone and even though they may not be actively engaged, their experiences with your work are impacting them. Think about the last time you watched TV: did everyone in the room have something entertaining to say? 

You never know who’s watching because there’s always somebody reading your posts or viewing your videos-even if they just skim through it briefly. This is why creating content worth consuming is critical, not only to get you out of your funk, but also to serve your audience.  Be authentic and stay true to yourself; make every post count as an opportunity for connection with your best self and for potential readers to bond with you.
