The way you start your day determines how well you live your day - Robin Sharma
I am not an early riser. It took long time for me to realize the importance of starting a day positively.
Early to bed and Early to rise - we are hearing this from childhood. Many do yoga and surya namaskarams in the morning, meditate and start the day with exercise or walking. In this hurry bury modern life, getting up early and sitting peacefully for sometime itself is difficult.
I too want to start my day by praying God on opening my eyes, take a stroll and enjoy the nature, have a steamed cup of coffee, enjoy its aroma, read newspaper and listen to good music. It might be the most ideal way to start a day for me.
But, lazy me, I get up late, run behind kids to make them ready, feed, have a quick breakfast, get ready and run to office. There is no exception even on weekends. Laziness pushes me still more deep inside, making me sleep late in the friday night watching a good movie or simply surfing Facebook, just to pass time and feel that it's going to be a weekend and thus getting up late on Saturdays. Thus, weekend mornings too carry same routine except that everything is done in slow pace, be it a bath or breakfast or anything else :-) This technology does it's part keeping me away from my ideal fresh start of the day. Sometimes, I get up early, feel like I should utilize time by going for a walk or sit peacefully and then open Facebook, office mails, gmail and Instagram in my phone and Voila! it will become a normal day, time will fly and I have to run for the errands :-)
|Have a lovely Morning!|
This might be the case for many too, but still I believe starting a day positively will impact our attitude for whole day. When we get up late, since we will not have time for anything, we get nervous, shout at family, crib about traffic , crib about managers in the office and be irritated whole day. This sure can be avoided by starting the day fresh. For some, it means meditating, for some, it's yoga, for some, it's exercise, for some, it's listening music and so on.. What is your ideal way to start a day?
