Any long-term change in behavior needs to be accompanied by a shift in mindset. A simple method to help adopt new beliefs is to cultivate habits based on a relevant theme. Adopting a theme to shift your mindset is a much more effective way to make long-term habits stick. And the simplest way to achieve this shift is by creating morning routines or rituals to support these behavior-changing themes.
For instance, you might want to cultivate a theme of ‘productivity’ or ‘discipline’ in your life.
How do you do that?
Create Morning Rituals To Support Your Theme
It has been shown that creating productive morning routines or rituals is one of the best ways to make lifestyle changes.
Wake up earlier every morning and give yourself a window of at least 1 hour to feed your brain before it gets distracted by your daily tasks.
You can start small and build one or more of these following actions into your morning ritual:
- Maintain A Journal. Writing down your thoughts early in the morning is a great way to activate your Reticular Activating System. This is the part of your brain that prompts you to swing into action. (Not sure where to start? Here’s a post that shows how to make the best use of journaling).
- Visualize Your Success. Write a few sentences to affirm your end goals. And take the time every morning to visualize your success in key areas.
- Meditate Daily. If you are not convinced that meditation is beneficial, here are a few reasons to start meditating today. All you need is a few minutes a day.
- Read Non-Fiction. Read Non-fiction for at least 20 minutes every morning. You will end up reading dozens of books every year without even noticing.
Be smart with your effort and adopt daily habits and rituals to support the theme that defines your ideal self.
