• I am definetly not a morning person, but i want to be so I am excited to try this out!

    • I love that you want to be a morning person! Some people are so opposed to it haha. I’m sort of an in-betweener – I like to wake up early but some days I just need to sleep in.

  • Whoa!!! I love how you break it down to mind, body and soul. That is such a good way to warm up for the day! I’m pinning this and going to try this!

  • This is fantastic, I’m definitely going to try this out! I’ll let you know how I go :)

  • I always do this, it really sets the tone for the entire day! Thank you so much for the inspiration to keep doing this, it’s so relaxing when you aren’t rushed you just feel more ready to take on the world! xxxxx

    • I love that you already do this! You are such a zen person haha. What are your favorite activities to do in the morning?

  • This is genius. I am definitely going to try to wake up and do this tomorrow morning! Maybe start with one or two in the morning though. Baby steps, right?! But I am absolutely inspired by this and hope to work up to it. You’re so right about having something to look forward to in the morning. Instead of thinking that when we wake up we have to go to work, shifting our perspective gives us more room and time to focus on other important things in life. Love this!

    • Baby steps, absolutely! I kept telling myself that I had to wake up and exercise ASAP, but that just felt like a chore so I never wanted to get up. Mixing exercise in after I’ve read or journaled makes it a lot more enjoyable!

  • This is brilliant! I am so downloading that worksheet for next week to try this out! :)

  • I’m pretty good at waking up in the morning, but I’m absolutely terrible at making myself clean! It stresses me out to slowly be chipping away at a cleaning project so I deserately need to try this! I know it would work.

    • I’m also so bad at cleaning! I can organize like a madwoman, but I just do not like to clean haha. This would be a great way to get it done though!

    What an amazing post and concept! I love this and I truly believe it rings true. When I was working at a job I didn’t LOVE, it was really hard to get up at 7:30am. Now that I’m a mom and a full-time blogger, I sometimes roll out of bed at 5:30, giddy get grab my coffee, get bloggy stuff done and see the smiling face waiting for me in his crib! ;)

    • I love this! I know that I would be much more motivated if I could work from home, but alas it is not possible just yet :)

  • This is sooo good! Every time I read your blog posts I get so excited about everything and anything! I’m so going to try this :)

  • That’s such an awesome method. As a Holistic Life Coach, I’m all for working our life from a three dimensional aspect. Thanks for sharing it!

  • I love this idea! I am definitely going to try this. Thanks =) I am really not a morning person, so that’s going to be a challenge, but let’s see what happens with those cool tips =)

  • I’ve so loved finding your blog through our link-up together and now I’m just savoring my way through your archives. I’m looking forward to trying my own Power Hour!

  • Love this so much. I’m the worst at getting up, it normally takes me 30 minutes to an hour. So having a system like this to look forward to would really help!

  • I really want to try this! I’m just worried because my usual morning routine (skincare, breakfast, coffee + pastry while catching up on blogs/youtube vidos) normally takes an hour. and i love that routine. but i want to add this, but don’t want to take 2 hours to get ready in the morning! have you tried this in smaller time increments or is 20 min the best time set up?

    • Well honestly I think you could totally count watching blogs and youtube as a soul thing since it adds a little more contentment into your day! And I think as long as you’re doing something, even for 5-10 minutes, in each category each day you’ll get tons of benefits from it :)

  • I just found this, and this is a beautiful genius way of getting self-care in! I definitely find that doing something to nourish myself first thing in the morning sets my day off on a high vibe space and that energy carries me through the day!

    I just found your blog and I love it!! I plan on sharing it in my monthly favorites over on sarastrives.com! I may also reference some of your articles in one that I am working on. I’ll let you know! :)

  • This is something that I think would help me. Mornings are pretty brutal. I could use something to look forward to. Excited to give it a try!

  • Kelli Snider

    Heck! I just woke up better already after reading this article. (And I have yet to have my coffee!) I usually only have one good thing to look forward to, my coffee. Why not have more than one good thing to look forward to? Brilliant! I am totally trying this method! Can’t wait to start my days better. Thank you for the break down and sharing the article!

  • This is so amazing!

    I can’t wait to try this in the morning! For the past 3 nights, I have gone to bed saying that I will wake up and do yoga. I think reading this post is the final push that I needed to ACTUALLY get up and do it. Thank you!
