Your First Thought Might Be, “What is a Black Belt Day?”

Basically it’s whatever you want it to be. But remember, it’s completely up to you what that is!

If you’re having what you call a “bad day” then the first thing you need to look at is what you’re choosing to focus on since you woke up this morning. One of the keys to having a great day is starting each day with a positive outlook or what we at Blackbelt Leaders call a “Black Belt Attitude”.


Read The Following Information To Learn How To
Begin Each of Your Days With A Black Belt Attitude.

 

Starting Your Day Well:

The choices you make upon waking can have a profound impact on your day. If you’re still drowsy and you hit the ground running, rushing to prepare yourself to face your worldly obligations, you will likely feel fatigued one overwhelmed for most of your day.

A leisurely and relaxing morning, on the other hand, can energise and excite you, as well as give you the courage to meet the challenges waiting for you.

By beginning your day in a focused and centred fashion, you make it your own. You set the tone of your expectations and choose the mood you will use to respond to your circumstances.

A gentle, and reflective morning will prepare you to create, conscious, and thoughtful day.

The simplest way to eliminate the rush from your morning routine is to rise earlier. Getting children into routines and getting themselves ready as much as possible will also give you more time. Though this mayhem like a hardship at first, you will soon grow to love the extra minutes minutes or hours that afford you the opportunity to really enjoy watching the sun come up or connect with your loved ones before you go in your separate directions.

There are many more ways you can constructively use the time you gain. A mere half-hour of introspection in which you examine your goals, thank the universe for the riches in your life, and contemplate the blessings you will receive this day can lift your spirit and help you formulate lasting positive expectations.

Likewise, you can solidify your day’s intention through spoken affirmations or the words you record in a journal. Or, if you want a little more to enjoy your day, devoted portion of your personal time to activities that both ground and delight you, such as meditation, yoga, singing, reading, listing to music or even martial arts 😉

If you feel, however, that there’s little room for change in the start-of-the-day-routine, try to make each activity you in engage in a ritual in its own right. The time you spend everyday savouring a shooting cup of tea or washing away tension in a hot shower can serve as a potent reminder of the need to care for yourself no matter what the hour.

Your morning is yours and should reflect not only your practical needs but also the needs of your soul. When you centre yourself at the start of your day, you will likely find it easier to remain entered during subsequent work, play, and downtime because the overall sense of serenity you create through your choices will stay with you throughout the day.

A Black Belt Day then, starts the moment you wake and extends through your entire day. Take responsibility for you life, one day at a time and you will be amazed at how many great Black Belt Days you will have.
