7 Tips To Super-Charge Your Morning Mood

There’s nothing worse than dragging yourself out of bed (after hitting snooze 3 or 4 times) to face a long and tiring day when all you really feel like doing is putting the pillow over your head and maybe surfacing around midday for a nice cafe brunch. But let’s face it. There’s only so many mental health days you can realistically get away with, and honestly – would you really feel so great about life or yourself anyway if you actually did follow your morning instincts?

A far better choice is to take action to boost your morning energy. I guarantee this will also improve your mood and ultimately your motivation to (enthusiastically!) get through the day ahead. Here’s a few ideas that have worked wonders for me. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I actually am a morning person now, and I really never thought that would happen!

1. Try a salt water re-boot

This tip will re-boot your adrenal (stress) glands, and give you a hearty dose of vital minerals. At night, simply stir a decent pinch of real (pink, grey or black organic) sea salt into a tall glass of water. Drink it first thing on arising. If you’re quite toxic you may experience a detox reaction, so stay close to a toilet for at least 10 minutes! This won’t happen on an ongoing basis, and may not happen at all. More likely you’ll just notice that morning fog clear and a welcome energy boost.

2. Get things moving with a dose of fiber and lemon

Freshly squeezed lemon in warm water is an old trick for improved morning digestion. Actually there’s not really any science behind the idea, but it works for nearly everyone and that’s good enough for me! You can add lemon to your salt water, or use a second glass – two glasses of water first thing is preferable anyway. If you really want to get things moving and enhance toxin removal, add 2 rounded teaspoons of a quality fiber. I’d do this in just half a glass water and then follow with another big glass.

3. Avoid eating 2 hours before bed

Food in your belly right before bed will reduce your quality of sleep and leave you feeling grump – possibly even hungover – come morning. If your body is focused on digestion you won’t be able to produce growth hormone (GH) whilst asleep, and considering GH is vital to a healthy metabolism I’d say it’s best to go to bed a little hungry.

4. Keep the room completely dark

Your sleeping environment is absolutely paramount to the quality of sleep you enjoy and therefore to your overall energy and health. I read a study in which simply shining a small red light behind the knee of a person caused melatonin production to drop and cortisol production to increase. Not good. Use an eye mask if necessary.

5. Maintain a comfortable temperature during sleep

It’s also important that you don’t become too warm whilst asleep. A cosy electric blanket or night-time heater is appealing when getting into a cold bed but you know how yucky you feel waking in a too-warm room – your head pounds and you feel as though your whole body has been left out to dry. Set the heater on a timer, and avoid the electric blanket altogether unless you like the idea of constant radiation whilst sleeping. If it’s summertime, use a slow fan. The noise might even help you sleep!

6. Move that ass – preferably outdoors

No excuses – as soon as you get out of bed chuck your shoes on (leave PJs on if necessary!) and take a quick 5-10 minute walk around the block. An alternative is to do 5-10 minutes of bodyweight squats, lunges, push ups in your garden or on your balcony. Unless you’re unfortunate enough to live right next to a sewerage plant, morning air – no matter how cold – will definitely clear your head and the accompanying exercise will leave you feeling exhilarated for hours.

7. Take 10 minutes to consider the day ahead

This is my favourite morning habit, and one I really wish I made time for more often. I like to combine a cup of quality java (which, as we recently learned, is lowering my heart disease risk!) with 10 minutes of journalling or just staring into space and thinking. I think it was Ghandi who said “I have so much to do today that I don’t have time not to spend an hour on my knees”. Another quote I love is  “the unexamined life is not worth living” (who said that?). You get the idea. Take some time to consider what’s important to you today; what would you have to do to feel great about the day and I guarantee you’ll feel great for it.

How ’bout you? What works for you in the early hours?

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event.
