I woke up before 4 this morning and after going to bed around 8 last night I figured I’d slept enough. Even better I’ve been feeling pretty good without cold meds. Yeah I can feel my internal energy reserves aren’t that great, but I still got up, took a shower, hydrated, did my light exposure, reading, journaling, mobility work, and meditation (it was a beast to sit still for 10 minutes and my mind wouldn’t quiet down with stuff I’m working through right now). I set my objectives for today – one of which is to get a haircut.
For whatever reason, I woke up and started thinking about how I treat myself. I don’t treat myself like a king – which ultimately is what I think most men want – well to be treated like a king.
This process of starting my day off doing some mildly challenging things – waking up early, cold water, caffeine denial, and mediating seems to have sparked something.
If I’m not going to respect myself enough to treat myself like a king – then why would anyone else treat me like a king?
I think I’m onto a theme for my next 30 days.
I don’t want to get ahead of myself here, I’ve still got another 8 days with this 30 days. But after things I’ve realized and gone through over the last few weeks – I’m definitely looking toward the horizon.
I’m debating on what to keep in my morning routine and what to add to it. I’m definitely adding in the VOMIT journaling method for the next 30 day period, and I’m debating on changing mediation for visualization. I’m thinking about some affirmations as well.
