Each day that passes by we tend to become more and more absorbed in the day to day things that overall have very little significance to our big picture. In doing this, it can be extremely draining and cause burnout. In our most recent Entrepods episode with Energetic Alignment Coach, Miranda Mitchell, she discusses the importance of slowing down and focusing on the things that truly matter in our lives.
What Does it Mean to Start Your Day With Intention?
When we asked Miranda what she does to start her day with positive energy, she replied with “Start each day with intention and self love.” As we began to dive deeper into this meaning we found that starting our day with intention is easier than we may originally have thought.
How to Set a Positive Intention
Create a mantra or affirmation: Making an affirmation that you want to willingly open yourself up to can bring you clarity and overall balance between mind and body. Some simple affirmations could be “This day will be mine” or “Everything happens for a reason and that’s okay.” “Situations may be out of my control but I choose my reaction.”
Morning routine: Getting into a morning (or night time) routine can help you bring positivity into your life by consistently making it a habit.
Meditate: Meditation is a practice that aligns your mind with your body and the energy you produce. Bringing a calming sense to yourself in order to start your day can help you get off on the right foot and maintain the outlook you need to get things done!
"Step into who you truly are and create the impact you want." - Miranda Mitchell
Limiting Beliefs Condition You
Limiting beliefs come in many shapes and sizes. They often stem from insecurities, childhood memories, past relationships, and more. People will state that they have imposter syndrome, which can be seen as a limiting belief. This hinders your ability to celebrate your wins and feel the successes as they come to you.
“What are the things that you’ve been conditioned on? What are the beliefs that you have created? What experiences have you had that conditioned you?” - Miranda Mitchell
These are important questions and conversations you should have with yourself in order to break free of the limiting beliefs that may be holding you back. Your accomplishments are your own and learning to accept this can be difficult at first but worth it as time goes on. Doing things for yourself that make you happy rather than doing it to prove you are deserving of something will give you the empowerment you need to move forward.
