The Ultimate Cheat Sheet to Create A Life-Changing Morning Routine

create your own life changing morning routine

In January I tested out different variations of the so-called “life-changing morning routine“.

The main result was that, yes, it does make a difference if you crash into the day or if your start it with mindfulness and purpose.

But no, there is no “one fits all” morning routine. There is probably one best routine for every soul out there and if we want a life-changing routine, we need to find our own.

That being said, there seem to be certain content categories to a life-changing morning routine which – with individual content – make up great morning rituals.

It DOES make a difference if we sleep enough – whatever that may mean. It DOES make a difference if we start the days eating healthy (whatever that may mean to your body!) – or eating junk, pondering our dreams – or worrying about the day, having time enough – or running around feeling stressed, being chaotic – or with a plan.

It literally changes the outcome of the day.

The “life-changing morning routine” is NOT to be seen as strict rules, they are rather kind of guidelines. Every new habit that is incorporated is a success. Trial and error is to be expected when building up a good routine that works for you.

Do YOU want to change your morning routine a little?

How can YOU start each day with purpose?

How can YOU change your life a little bit every morning?

Built on my main findings I made you guys a cheat sheet infographic you may use as guidelines to create your own life-changing morning routines!

You may use it to start building up your own great routines, and if you do, I would love to hear from you in the comments!

Anything in particular that works really well for you? I’d love to hear about that, too!

behindthescenes1Writing – mostly blog posts, tweets and A Heart of Fire notes

Highly Sensitive Persons: 20 Ways to Protect Yourself

There’s a good reason why I haven’t written in a while. I’m a highly sensitive person who needed a break.

Definition of The Highly Sensitive Person:

Dr. Elaine Aron defines the highly sensitive person (HSP) as a person who, compared to the 80% of the population without the trait, processes everything around him/her much more – reflect on it, elaborate on it, make associations. In other words, the 20% highly sensitive persons have a sensitive nervous system that is more aroused to stimuli than that of the 80%.  Continue reading

5 Important Life Lessons My Grandparents Taught Me

21st of March my grandmother died – my reason for not blogging these past weeks. I miss her, I love her, and her death is not what I wanted for her. I wanted her to have a happy retirement and enjoy her life far longer.

I miss the two of them more than words can express, which is why I decided to dedicate a post to them. They taught me so much about life and about loving, and here are some of the things I learned from them… Continue reading
