Each morning when we wake up, we can go in one of two directions: we can set ourselves up to feel good with morning rituals like meditating, setting intentions, and exercising … or we can pick up our phones, drink a bunch of coffee, and start rushing around.
When we choose the second option, we often start the day feeling overwhelmed. Our mind races with everything we have to get done. If we’ve looked at social media, we might already be comparing ourselves with other people or feeling stressed by hot takes on the news.
The morning is a sacred time—it’s when we choose how we want the rest of the day to go. Therefore, it’s crucial that we change our habits.
The great news is that a single shift in our behavior can redirect our entire day.
Set yourself up to win by starting your day with a practice I call the Daily Design Method. I teach it in my new book, Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.
It’s easy to do. Each morning when you wake up, open your journal and answer these four questions:
• How do I want to feel today?
• Who do I want to be today?
• What do I want to receive today?
• What do I want to give today?
Take your time answering each question as specifically as possible. This is a process of co-creating your day with the Universe. See yourself feeling satisfied as you finish a task that you’ve been avoiding. Envision yourself having positive encounters with everyone from your family to your coworkers. Picture your morning commute going smoothly.
Design your day exactly how you want it to be, and have fun writing about it!
This method combines creative visualization (by the way, Will Smith, Carli Lloyd, and Oprah are just a few of the super-successful people who use visualization) with clear intention setting and feeling good. As you design your day, allow yourself to feel really good about what you’re writing down, and ride that wave of positive momentum!
Designing your day and writing it down is a powerful way to focus on exactly how you want to feel.
When you make the Daily Design Method a morning habit, you’ll start to notice that things begin to work out exactly as you planned—or that something even better happens. Not only will you go through your day feeling happier and less stressed, but the high-vibration energy you carry with you will ripple outward. Other people will pick up on it and respond to you more positively.
Enjoy this practice. Give yourself 10 minutes each morning to design your day, and then watch in awe as your visions come to life.
