Self-Care Routine: The Miracle Morning

Self-Care Routine: The Miracle Morning

Have you heard of The Miracle Morning? Written by Hal Elrod, the book talks about a routine that includes affirmations, writing and exercise that can help you start the day well, so that the rest of your day goes well too. Being huge advocates for self-care and routines together, we’ll show you how you can use aromatherapy and essential oils to enhance your morning routines. 


1. Read for 15 minutes 

According to the book, we shouldn’t worry too much about how we build a morning routine. Instead, Elrod suggests that we take ideas from the people who have already successfully managed to get to a state of calmness, productivity and joy they are content with. Taking 15 minutes in the morning to read a few pages of the book that’s been sitting on your bedside table since forever is one of the best ways to start. It’s also relaxing!

If you struggle to keep your focus for tasks like reading, keep Focus Driver next to your book and use it to help your mind centred on our reading.


2. Affirmations

Affirmations are short sentences that are aligned with what you want to accomplish, and what you need to do to get there. Even though they are short, they are powerful as they stay imprinted in your subconscious. When repeated out loud over time, they have the ability to transform our thoughts and behaviours by replacing limiting beliefs with the ones we need to be successful and accomplish our goals. 

You can always combine affirmations with a short 10-minute morning meditation. By subscribing to our newsletter, you can access a series of short guided meditation videos using different essential oils for various needs: from calming to enhanced positivity.

3. Visualisations

When we visualise, we train our brains to see things as we would like them to be, instead of how they are. Elrod says that we should take 5 minutes to visualise our ideal day - including how we act in front of different situations, how we handle our work and interactions, and how we feel enjoyment and confidence from them. 

As a result, we’ll receive the day with openness, acceptance and a positive attitude. 

4. Exercise

Don’t worry, you don’t need to go on long training sessions in the morning. By ‘exercise’, Elrod refers to anything from a 10 minute yoga session in your living room, a walk around your neighbourhood, or a quick jog around the block. Implementing exercise in your morning routine will get blood and oxygen circulating to your brain - waking you up and getting you going. 

If you need an extra boost of energy in the morning, citrus essential oils will do the trick. By blending citrus essential oils into your diffuser or using a few spritzes of the Energising Body Mist , you’ll fill your senses with cheerful energy and vitality. 


5. Writing

Whether it’s a journal entry, a letter to a friend, a short story, or a gratitude list, writing anything you have on your mind that day can help give space to your emotions and let you work through them for a good start to the day. Just 10 minutes is enough! Especially on days where your mood isn’t the brightest, writing can help you acknowledge your emotions, but store them somewhere else than in your mind. That way, positive and uplifting thoughts can take the stand. 

Diffusing Woods or Floral essential oils are perfect to have on the background in one of your writing sessions. They have incredible grounding and comforting properties that will make it simpler for you to connect with your emotions and thoughts. 


6. Meditation 

Meditation is definitely an important step of a self-care morning routine. Silencing your mind through meditation has limitless benefits to your wellbeing - reducing stress and anxiety, encouraging a calm state of mind and enhancing creativity being one of the most important ones.

Meditation can be quite challenging at the start. Our blog gives some great pointers on how to get started strong - don't hesitate to take a look. In addition, aromatherapy can also enhance your practice in lots of different ways. Take a look at our guided meditations.
