I want to follow-up and provide you with how I handle my morning routine. I’ve got to tell you, I’m just like you and I’ve always resisted routine. I’ve gone out of my way to be less than routine, and be spontaneous.
What I’ve learned from my coaches who really encourage me, to take those things that I need to do on a day to day basis and make them a routine. To do them at the same time, at the same point of the day every single day. Even to go further and write it down. When you write it down, that’s when it becomes real. When you write it down, when you schedule it, then it becomes real.
What I am talking about here, are the things you do first thing in the morning before anything else. I highly encourage you to go down this path. Figure out what your routine is, write it down and schedule it. In the beginning, focus on doing one or two things each morning to give you some early successes. Pick up a little bit more of it every week until you get to the point where you’re doing everything that you want and need to be doing in the morning.
The morning is so critical in that it sets you up for your entire day. If you have a good morning, and a good morning routine, you will be well set up for success for that entire day, I guarantee you. Your life will explode in so many wonderful, wonderful ways.
I’m going to go through and lay out my morning routine for you.
I also have a mid-day routine and I have an evening routine. I’ve posted this on the below (Download Now button) so that you can download my routine. you can alter it and make it yours. Not everybody is the same. You can use my routine, I’m more than happy. I would be honored if you did, but my routine works for me and it’s always changing. I would encourage you to create your own routine. Start with mine and modify it to make it work for you.
First thing I do when I wake up in the morning, I wake up at 6am every day, is called Balanced Breathing. I learned it from a very good friend of mine. One of my coaches and mentors, Dr. George Pratt. I have provided a link to George’s website below, where you can find more information under the FREE tab at the top
George taught me to do balanced breathing. It’s a great two minute exercise that you can do that will do so much for your mind, body and soul. You would be amazed at just what this two minutes can do for you. If all you do in the day is this two minutes, you’re going to be miles ahead of where you are today. Along with balanced breathing I do a minute of grounding my body
I know a lot of you may not be into energy and energy work and things like that, but grounding is a great principle. Send me a private message on Facebook or an email. My email is Rob@RobRoell.com. Either way, let me know that you’re interested. We can connect one on one using Google Hangout or Skype or something like that. I can show you what I mean and walk you through just the basics of grounding. It’s really straight forward, really easy.
The next thing I do is hydrate. Before I go to bed at night I set myself up for success. I make sure I have 32 ounces of fresh water sitting on my counter in the bathroom ready to go. When I get out of bed and I start to down that 32 ounces as go through the rest of my routine.
I then take a 45 minute walk. I wake up early in the morning. It gets hot here in Texas. It’s already 85 to 90 degrees by the time we wake up. I always make sure I’m wearing a heart rate monitor. My goal with that 45 minute walk is to stay in the fat burning zone with my heart rate.
I’m 52 years old. I don’t want to feel like I’m 52 years old. I don’t want to feel like I’m 70 when I’m 70. I want to feel like I’m 30 and 40 years old and have lots of energy, so 45 minute walk every day with a heart rate monitor so you can measure it. You can measure your heart rate and keep it in the right zone for you. You can measure how far you’re walking, how long you’re walking, all of that fun stuff. If you can’t measure it you can’t improve it. You always want to look for improvement and progress in what you’re doing.
Next up is something called rebounding. More particularly lymphasizing. (Something too deep to go into here) I do this 10 minutes twice a day. I rebound 10 minutes in the morning, I rebound again 10 minutes at night before I go to bed. It helps me to lymphasize. It gets the lymph moving in my body and helps to clean out the toxins out of my body.
Rebounding uses one of those little personal trampolines that are about 3 feet across. And, I maximize my time by doing my incantations while I rebound. I do 5 minutes of incantations and then 5 minutes are for deep breathing exercises. That’s rebounding.
After that I go into my workout. My workout today is 45 minutes using exercises from a gentleman named Pete Egoscue. Pete and his team are based out of Delmar, California and they do wonderful things. about. The whole idea is to adjust and improve my posture.
I then have a light breakfast in the morning, usually some kind of a green smoothie. My smoothies usually include a little bit of Udo’s oil composed of essential fatty oils that your body really needs and can’t produce on its on. I finish my morning nutrition with 1 to 2 ounces of wheatgrass. I grow and juice my own wheatgrass, so it’s as fresh and as potent as it possibly can be.
After I’ve done all that, I sit down every single day before I do anything and I plan my day. I put down everything that I want to accomplish. I chunk it out into areas like abundance for my financial health, business activities, family activities, friend activities, and I figure out the best way to go about handling that for the day. That’s my morning routine. I hope you find it helpful. I encourage you to do the same.
