Crucial Morning Mistakes To Avoid!
Morning Mistakes you make can cost you feeling
miserable for the rest of the day!
So it’s crucial to be Self-Aware & start the day
without some of the limitations & distractions we face.
Below I’ll Discuss some of the Morning Mistakes
I’ve been doing for a long time,
what I’ve Learned from them & how
my Life Improved once I deleted them from my life.
1. Starting Your Day With Negative News
This was happening to me 7-8 months ago.
Whenever I’ve had a breakfast in the morning
I will turn up the TV for 10 minutes,
just so until I finished my breakfast.
I don’t watch Television at all otherwise.
So I noticed because all you have there is heated
debates and news about incidents and deaths etc.
This was influencing me to be more nervous,
unfocused, my mind was poisoned from the morning
and some days I was feeling unproductive
to do even the simplest things.
You may say:
That’s only 10minutes, what bad can happen to you?
My Answer: Be Self-Aware especially in the mornings, with what information you feed your brain, Click To Tweet
because in my case these 10 minutes
were impacting my whole day and how I feel.
Note: Be Careful what you watch or do right before
you’re going to bed at night as well.
It has a little different effect on your brain
but that’s a discussion for another time.
2. Don’t Touch Your Phone
1st Hour Of The Day
Touching your phone in the first hour of the day is ridiculous BAD! Click To Tweet
We do it all the time & we do it out of habit. (Admit it)
This way you’re learning and developing muscles of
distraction and you are training your Brain to be Reactive.
With new technology, the human attention goes down
because we have these smart devices with every like,
share, comments, video etc.
This rush you to always be looking for the newest thing
or the latest affair and every time you get a dopamine fix.
That’s where the real problems start to pile up because
the largest brands or platforms have already employed guys
who will work hard on how they can capture your attention,
how they can make you addicted to their
app, game, page or whatever.
(That’s little creepy I know, but it’s Truth)
It’s training you to be addicted and adjust to distraction,
it’s training & rewiring your brain to be reactive.
What is That Meaning?
Meaning that you’re in this relaxed state of awareness
when you first wake up,
Then you grab your cell phone & do these morning mistakes:
- check texts & SMS,
- open emails,
- check your facebook,
- take a picture of your feet post it on Facebook or whatever,
- Tweet something on the rush,
- Check Instagram for Hearts and stuff etc.
Now you feel really connected to everything
that’s known in your life.
But the reality is you just adjust to the perceived reality.
In this hypnotic state, you bring yourself that only
YOU are responsible for, will affect you as time goes by
and you can never have a quality life.
3. Complaining-Worst Morning Mistakes
Seriously a lot of people love to wake up
in the morning and complain.
This is one of the worst morning mistakes!
They complain about:
- how early it is,
- they complain about having to go to work,
- they complain about how tired they feel,
Instead of waking up and do these morning mistakes,
and complaining, why not think about what
you have to be grateful for or
some positive event you expect to happen to you today?
Simply ask yourself Why not?
Compare the two patterns of Thinking and decide
for yourself, I’m not gonna play smart or tell you what to do,
You know what’s best for yourself right?!
If you’re like me you are going to notice,
experiment and see what best suits you.
I choose to prime myself for 5-7 minutes right after I woke up.
I’m overall a happier person since I started to practice
this so-called “prime” technique so why stop
or don’t use it daily right?
4. You are Your Pattern & Decision Creator
When You Wake Up in the morning the next 10-20 minutes
are crucial how are going to feel the whole day.
Most people wake up in the morning
and they begin to think about their problems, work
schedules, obligations etc.
Next, they go through a series of repeated memorized behaviors
like get out of bed on the same side, get a cup of coffee,
get dressed, drive to work the same way, do the same things,
they see the same people, etc.
If You Think about it it becomes like a program,
so now we can say they’ve lost their Free Will.
There is a good research by Dr. Joe Dispenza who says:
95% of who we are by the time we are 35 years old is
a memorized set of behaviors emotional reactions and habits,
hard-wired beliefs and perceptions
that function like a computer program.
So then a person can say with
their 5 percent of their conscious mind:
– I want to be healthy,
– I need to be free,
– I want my Life to have a purpose,
but the body is on a whole different program.
After You wake up you’re being defined by your thoughts,
so when your body wants to switch back to
its emotional past of what’s already known & automated,
you practice becoming Self-Aware of that.
Why Practice To Be Self-Aware?
Because your attention is on that emotion
and where you place your attention is where you place your energy, Click To Tweet
so putting your energy out of the present moment
into the past will harm you and you gotta practice
that and be Self-Aware of yourself and your actions.
Because it will be hard to change the way “you’re programmed“,
and what you constantly did for long periods of time.
The first 5-10 days, for some, may even hit up a big wall
of anxiety and similar symptoms,
but this is where your True Willpower & Willingness should
appear and you should constantly remind yourself
that these unpleasant and unknown moments
will pass & you’re doing this for your own good,
creating lasting changes for yourself!
