For decades, I've started my day by asking myself, "What's so exciting about today?" A few months ago I updated my morning wake-up conversation. I like it because it centers myself in gratitude first thing for the day, so I'm hoping you can find it helpful too! Here's my inner dialogue first thing in the mornings:
• Thank you for today.
• List three things I am feeling deep appreciation for that morning.
• Ask myself (and answer), "What's so exciting about today?"
• Get up and get going!
It's not a heavy lift at all. It takes just a couple minutes, but can change your mindset and the course of your day.
