When we first wake up up before we are fully awake and the just before we fall asleep are two of the most important times of the day for our minds and the power it holds. Let’s talk about waking up with positive energy.
When you wake up, how do you feel? How do you speak to yourself? Are you happy to embrace the new day, or do you dread it. Are you feeling motivated and ready to go, or do you arise with the feeling of ‘another day that I haven’t reached my goal’; ‘another day stuck in the hole.’; ‘I’ll never make it.’
Thoughts are things you know. We’ve got to programme ourselves from the moment we wake up, to look forward. We can’t stop the negative or fear thought from coming into our heads upon awakening, but we can stop it from taking root and growing into an uncontrollable monster. I’ve been there! It’s not nice.
So how do we wake up and control our mind. For one thing, it might be best not to listen to the news first thing in the morning. This can often happen when a clock radio alarm goes off on the hour or half hour. You don’t want to hear about troubles as soon as you wake up. Turn the sound down for the duration that the news usually runs so you don’t hear it. You can always turn it back up when the music or weather comes back.
Now when the black thought clouds start tumbling in, as soon as you become aware of them, stop right then, and change those thoughts to more constructive ones. A quick fix might be to immediately start saying a favourite affirmation over and over till you obliterate that dark thought.
