Top 5 Morning Motivators for Moms
3. Play upbeat music
5. Eat an energizing breakfast TOGETHER
You must admit that these sound a little too obvious – but let’s be honest…
…how often are you actually DOING any of these?
The energy from a smile goes unspoken.
When YOU wake up – try it…smile! When you wake your children up – try it…smile at them, get them to smile with you! Follow up with a good morning hug.
This simply means Move
Instead of just dragging yourself out of bed, jumping in the shower and filling your body with coffee- take 5 and do some basic stretches or a 15 minute Fit Yummy Mummy workout.
Even better ….get your children involved! It can be as simple as reaching for the ceiling and bending over to reach for the floor.
Be sure you drink a Big glass of water too! Being hydrated ensures a boost of energy!
Music has the ability to calm, soothe and entertain the soul. Play something soothing like Enya or go all out with something fun and upbeat like Dan Zanes – a favorite with my boys and he’s actually very fun to listen to!
Good Morning Sunshine!
How would you describe the conversations you have with your loved ones in the morning?
Why not fill your children up – and yourself for that matter- with positive and encouraging words.
Even more fun, create an affirmations jar. Take turns pulling the day’s positive words out and
+ Good Morning!
Yes, it will be a good morning and a good day!
+ Today my world is changing for the better.
I open my awareness to my shifting reality.
+ Every day I am new and improved.
+ I accept each new day as an opportunity to outshine yesterday.
You all know this one ~
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Be sure you are eating quality protein – a good 15 to 20 grams, produce – fruit is fabulous – and even some whole grains – like rolled oats or red quinoa.
Add to this important ritual by actually sitting down and eating breakfast with your family at the table. Not only do you set a powerfully positive message, this also allows for the exchange of more talk and smiles.
Practice these Morning Motivators and experience the difference it makes with your focus, motivation
and overall attitude.
Here’s what some of the FYM’s posted about their Morning Motivators in the forums of ClubFYM.com…
“I set my morning right by visualizing how I want my day to be! I’ve found when I don’t do this my day goes in what ever direction my morning went, so if I’m in rush, or lollygaging in the morning, that’s how the rest of my day goes. “
“My favorite thing to do in the morning, as soon as my kids wake up, is I give them my biggest smile, and hug, say good morning beautiful/handsome! It starts their days off in such a positive way, as well as mine. Smiles are contagious! The way they start their days is usually how the whole day will be, so I do my best to give them everything I have first thing!”
“Definitely music – music always motivates me.
Reading a positive quote online.
Reading a positive book when I can.
Drinking more water.
Getting my workouts in.
Trying a new recipe.”
“I start my mornings out strong. I get in a workout before my family is awake and push myself. I then have a good stretch to help and relieve some tension. I then continue my day and feel strong because I have woken up with energy and strength!”
