You know those days that feel more amazing than any other day? The days that the sun is shining or you are welcoming the rain…The days that you feel secure in yourself and the decisions you are making in life…The days that you feel calm and collected? What if I told you they can happen more often than not? Everyone has their own version of a magical day. At the heart and foundation of a Wild Vibrant Woman’s magical day are beautiful rituals that start the day off on high vibrations. Each of these rituals are simple and sustainable ways to invite positive and intentional living your way and it is possible to do each them every morning.
Email + Phone Delay
Life is busy and it can wait. Give yourself a good 30 minutes to an hour (if not more) to settle into your day. Emails and scrolling through your phone can be a huge distraction from the precious morning moments of dropping in, setting intentions and starting your day off clearly.
Attitude of Gratitude
Gratitude is the beautiful practice of being thankful and appreciating. Women who live in gratitude often have an overall sense of abundance, happiness and goodness in their lives, and find themselves seeing and appreciating the small things in life. Before opening your eyes, take a few deep conscious breaths. If you fall back to sleep easily gently flutter your eyes open. Take a few moments to think of what and or who you are a grateful for. As you stand up speak the words, “Thank you” in deep reverence for your life as it is today and the goodness to come.
Set an Intention
Before you start thinking about what is on your to do list, take a few moments to set an intention for the day. It could be anything from being more present in each moment, to being more kind to yourself, to being seeing the goodness and magic around you.
Get your mind and body ready for the day ahead. Sun salutations or super gentle stretching gently wakes up the body, gets the blood flowing and gets your mind and body in gear for a good positive start to the day.

“Affirmations help purify our thoughts and restructure the dynamic of our brains so that we truly begin to think nothing is impossible. The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, originally meaning “to make steady, strengthen.Affirmations are proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains. Much like exercise, they raise the level of feel-good hormones and push our brains to form new clusters of “positive thought” neurons(http://www.arlenetaylor.org/brain-care/953-affirmation). In the sequence of thought-speech-action, affirmations play an integral role by breaking patterns of negative thoughts, negative speech, and, in turn, negative actions.” Dr. Carmen Harra
