I’m guessing you check your phone first thing when you wake up.
There are emails, notifications, texts… all kinds of pop-ups pulling your attention into all the things you have to do in your busy schedule.
And there you are, sitting in your bed, already stressed about the day. You’ve been awake for less than 10 minutes.
Does this sound like you?
I used to date a CEO/co-founder of a tech company who insisted that he check his phone first thing in the morning. He was needed!
And inevitably, there were always fires going off, alarms, people needing him to solve some sort of problem that was actually quite simple.
But he choose to give himself away first thing as he awoke.
As a result, he was already stressed, tired, and dreading the day before he got in the shower.
He didn’t establish boundaries for his personal time. And if you’re still reading, maybe you don’t either…
It’s not unreasonable to reserve 30 minutes for yourself to get going before you dive into work or responding to friends on social media.
For me, I spend the first hour or two nearly completely tech-free. This time is incredibly sacred to me so I can consciously choose what state of being I want to enter the day in.
I choose to love myself. To feel like a queen. To relish the morning sun. To slowly bring my brain to full speed.
The easiest way to stop yourself from looking through notifications is set your Do Not Disturb to turn off after you’ve had time to shower/get dressed/make your breakfast. Or Simply 10 minutes after your alarm.
Trust me on this one – it will change your life.
Let me know how it goes!
