Man, I've been going through it lately. I don't know what is happening with the planets and the collective and the universe but I am FEELING it. And based on every conversation and every person I've connected with in the last 3 months, you're probably feeling it too. Everyone is. And I'll be the first to tell you what to do to get out of this funk. I'll give you all the tips and tricks to overcoming whatever this "stuck" feeling is to become the best version of yourself. And then I'll go home, and not do any of it myself, until I feel completely depleted, and then inevitably crash.
This is me, publicly calling myself out, in order to break this fucking cycle. I'm tired of the roller coaster. My highs are so high, and last for weeks. Then, all of a sudden I'm doing TOO MUCH, taking on a bunch of shit that isn't mine to carry, running around like a chicken head, not making time to do the self-love things that I scream from the mountain tops about. Which creates really low lows. I'm tired AF. I get sick. My energy isn't where it needs to be to see clients.
The only time I feel this way is when I'm not doing my shit, or if I'm only doing it half-assed. So this week, I started a new morning ritual. The first hour that I'm awake includes ALL of my shit. And by my shit, I mean the things I tell everyone to do to live their best lives possible. Yes, I've only been doing this for 4 days, but my shit is on fire, lovers. So I'm sharing it with you because even if it helps ONE person, my work is done for the day.
First of all, I do not touch my phone for the first hour I'm awake, other than to shut the alarm off at 5am. Which by the way, charges in the bathroom overnight, so I actually have to physically get out of bed to shut the alarm off.
Next, I get dressed in my workout clothes.
3. Start coffee pot.
4. Drink hot lemon water.
6. Brush my teeth.
That should eat up the first 10 minutes of your morning if you're regular and a quick pooper. If you're not, the hot lemon water will help. When I'm done, I grab a cup of coffee because, pre-workout, and head into my study. I mean home office/Lucy's bedroom.
8. Read for 10 minutes.
9. Meditate for 10 minutes.
10. Journal for 10 minutes.
11. Workout 20 minutes.
I follow with a hot-ass epsom salt shower and a breakfast full of fuel, then make the day my bitch. In just 4 days, a few things have happened.
I have more energy throughout the day and don't want to pass out at 8pm.
Shit doesn't change my vibe when it hits the fan.
I am able to give more of myself without losing balance or feeling depleted.
I'm thirsty ASF and am drinking all the water I SHOULD BE DRINKING.
I did a bunch of hard shit I was putting off, including TAXES.
My poops are fantastic.
I feel like I have more time. For everything.
My attitude is better.
I stopped complaining.
My screen time is WAY DOWN.
My adult acne is going away.
Even though the sun isn't shining, I still feel energized and happy.
I guess I'm just going to keep doing this and see what happens to my life. If 4 days can make me feel like this, I can only imagine what 4 weeks would do. Ok, fine. I'm on it. I'm giving myself a taste of my own medicine, and I'll report back, giving you all the juicy deets. As I eat my juicy beets. Which are also medicine. For the root chakra.
To be continued...my blog, my guidance and my sweet ass rhymes.
