You’ve heard about “waking up on the right side of the bed”…bow about waking up on the right side of the clock? Five minutes of your time might not seem like a lot, but according to life coach and Kundalini teacher Ryan Weiss, it’s enough to shift your entire day for the better.
The first five minutes of every day determine how much success and happiness will follow for the rest of the day. Here are Ryan’s Five For Five:
1. Take a freezing cold shower
Yes, it sucks, but it works. Cold showers not only force me to wake up, they relieve stress and depression, enhance the immune system and prove that I can do anything.
I wake up saying “thank you” for giving me a new day to explore and follow up with five things/people/events I am grateful for. Gratitude is the open door to more and connects me to my emotional intelligence. Without it, I’m lost in the danger of my thoughts.
3. ask these questions
I ask these questions knowing the answers will show up during the day. I find starting with questions (as opposed to answers) reminds me that I really know nothing and opens me to a day of enrichment. I ask the questions from A Course In Miracles: Where would You have me go? What would You have me do? What would You have me say? And to whom?
4. Ego Eradicator and Addiction Meditations
Kundalini yoga meditations are a shot of espresso for your heart. Each incorporates breath, mantra and physical movement to break free from our patterned, comfortable thinking into innovative, creative, expansive thinking. I teach these during my week-long video series with PopExpert.
Drink tons of water and my morning tonic (tea base, Chinese herbs, coconut oil and ghee).
