Devoting time to meditate in the morning can set you up for a day of success and happiness.  Morning meditation invites you to grasp clarity and connect with your emotions so that you begin each day feeling grounded, and prepared for whatever may come your way. 

According to The Entrepreneur, the first few hours of your day are the most important, as they set the tone for how your day will unfold. When you release your subconscious mind, your mental processes hit their peak earlier, allowing you to make creative connections earlier. Check out these simple mindful meditations to welcome positivity into your mornings.

Voyage Through Full Body Scan Meditation

Full body scan meditations encourage you to explore both pleasant and unpleasant sensations going on inside the body, according to Mindful. Acknowledging these feelings gives you a deeper understanding of your body.

Check in with your body first thing in the morning to set yourself up for a day of success. As soon as you open your eyes in the morning, before getting up, lay entirely flat on your back and carry out a full-body scan meditation. Begin by closing your eyes and shifting your focus inwards. 

Body scans can be carried out in one of two ways. Firstly, you can allow the body to guide you. Focus your attention to feel all of the  parts of your body. Maybe you feel some tension in your lower back. In that case, your focus will naturally go there. Zone in on this part of the body and share some loving, healing energy.

Or can also follow a complete head-to-toe body scan. Begin at the tips of your toes and work your way up through the body. Pay attention to each part along the way. As you pass through each body part, zone in and focus on how you feel. Appreciate the good. Express gratitude for the ‘not so good’ as a way of sending love to your body and enhancing healing.

Whichever option you choose to go for, allow the breath to guide you. Ahh…Head-to-toe bliss!

Connect to Your Roots Through Grounding

Connecting your feet with the earth, otherwise known as grounding, allows you to embrace the earth’s natural healing energy that can reduce stress and boost vitality, according to ScienceDirect

Kick start your day with a grounding meditation. As you rise with the morning sun, stretch out your body. Before leaving the bed, place your feet on the ground beneath you, sitting tall on the edge of your bed. Alternatively, you can practice this grounding technique outdoors, with your bare feet directly against the earth.

While grounding, close your eyes and imagine the roots of a tree representing your feet, pressing into the earth beneath you and rooting you in the present moment. 

Beginning each day by grounding invites you to clear your mind and become rooted in your truth. By entering this state of stability, you can carry this with you through your day to ensure you are grounded in all that you do. No matter what comes your way, you can choose to respond from a place of peace rather than react.

Feel grounded with morning meditations.

Visualize Your Perfect Day

Visualization is the act of imagining the outcome of something before it has occurred and acknowledging how it makes you feel. This can be an extremely powerful mindful meditation, according to the renowned meditation app Headspace

Have you got a to-do list that you aim to complete each day? Take some time in the morning to move through your list and imagine yourself successfully completing everything you have set out to do that day. 

For example, let’s say you plan to reach your daily targets at work then pop to the gym afterward and run a 5k on the treadmill. Close your eyes and visualize yourself arriving at work, on time and having an extremely productive day. Next, visualize yourself arriving at the gym on the treadmill, and running that 5k. 

How does this make you feel? You should feel achievement and success because you achieved your daily goals. Harness these feelings of happiness and gratitude, and carry this with you through your day as you set out to go after your dreams. 

You have a choice in how your day goes, make it a good one by integrating these mindful meditations into your morning routine
