I started meditating about one year ago. I was first introduced to the idea from one of the coach training courses I?ve completed, the Quantum Success Coaching Academy (QSCA). The QSCA program included many bonuses, such as the Abundance Principle Coaching Program and the Divine Manifesting System by Christy Whitman.
These two programs have similar structure. They included daily activities for 40-50 days straight, like: daily statement/affirmation (different one each day); meditation for at least 15 minutes; journal daily thoughts; visualization for at least 2 minutes; list 10 things I?m grateful for; VAKS exercise; and list 3 actions I will take today.
I hear pretty often that I am crazy for getting up so early. Or, people are just amazed that I keep this schedule and actually enjoy it!
I get up at 4:20 AM Monday through Thursday to go to a group workout at the gym from 5-6 AM. I have been doing this routine for the last year and a half. I feel so accomplished to start my day this way, and the committed routine makes it feel easy for me to up this early. It wasn?t always this way. (Stay tuned for more on this in an upcoming post.)
Going to bed early, in addition to making the commitment itself, is one of the main reasons I?ve been able to keep this schedule and even really look forward to it and enjoy it. This way, I get around 8 hours of sleep and feel good in the morning.
