Monday Mojo for Caregivers – A 2 Minute Meditation to Start Your Day Off Right
Hello and welcome to Monday Mojo for Caregivers. It is Monday again. The hardest day of the week for many of us. Let’s try to make this Monday better than the last. Take a moment a give yourself a huge stretch and wake up.
The first thing you want to do is say thank you for this day.
Be thankful for the people in your life and that you woke up. We have so much to be thankful for, we don’t even realize it because of the daily responsibilities. When you get ready in the bathroom, look at yourself in the mirror and say “I am going to have a great day, and nothing is going to get me down” I can do anything, with a smile!
So let’s get started! Make sure that you sitting comfortably with your back straight and close your eyes. Take a deep breath through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth. Repeat quietly in your mind, “today is a great day.”
As you continue to breathe slowly and deeply imagine a vibrant yellow light flowing into your body with every breath you take this yellow light is charged with a powerful positive energy. With every breath you take your body will become naturally energized. You may feel a slight tingling as the positive yellow energy spreads throughout your entire body recharging every cell and every part of you. As your life force is recharged with this positive vibrant energy you feel simple pleasure in being alive. You begin to look forward to this great day. I want you to embrace this feeling! Give yourself permission to feel great about yourself.
Now repeat quietly in your mind: “I am energized. I am healthy. I feel great.”
Your energy will continue to recharge so keep breathing deeply. Now I want you to smile to yourself and pay attention how this little smile improves your morning mood. If you feel a little silly that’s fine just do it anyway and try to keep that smile on your face while you repeat quietly in your mind after me: “I love my life. I love who I am. I am loved. I am happy. Today everything is fun and easy. I am allowing myself to enjoy this day.”
Now it’s time to begin your great day. Begin by gently stretching your back and wiggle your toes and start to listen to the sounds around you. When you open your eyes you will be wide awake feeling energized and ready for a great day.
