Let’s compare notes. What’s your daily practice to keep you energized, in balance, happy, grateful and activated on this journey?November 23, 2015 at 12:17 am #2052
For me it’s golfing everyday, or at least 5 days a week when possible. Usually I play at sunrise, which is an epic way to start a day… even when it’s the middle of winter and it’s raining sideways! It sure does feel great to be alive.December 11, 2015 at 7:10 pm #4392
I did it for awhile before and am going to start again…
It’s called the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. I don’t have his book, just pieced together the routine from his podcast or articles, I don’t remember.
Basically, it’s this:
Miracle Morning Format S.A.V.E.R.S by Hal Elrod
I exercise after Meditation to get blood flowing for the following steps.
1.) Silence – Meditation, breathing. I do Brad’s Week 1 Meditation from the 21 Day course. Even doing part of it helps if time is limited.
2.) Affirmations –
1. What do you want for your life (separate in to categories)?
2. why do I want this, what is the benefit.
3. What’s preventing me from getting it, obstacles.
4. What do I need to do every day to achieve this? ” I am committed to doing _____________ to achieve it.
3.) Visualization – the goal and more importantly, the steps that get you there
4.) Exercise – Breathe and get blood flowing
5.) Reading – Personal development
6.) Scribing – Journaling or goals or schedule or affirmations or… 5 minute journal
1. What am I grateful for – 3 things
2. What would make today great – 3 things
3. My daily affirmation
4. 3 amazing things that happened today
5. How could you have made today betterDecember 12, 2015 at 7:05 am #4442
I used to have a morning ritual of meditation followed by stream of consciousness journalling and reading a chapter of a personal development book. It’s been a long while since I kept that practice. But, now I commit to getting back to it.
I really like Trish’s idea of daily affirmations and statements to express in her journal. So, I’m going to borrow those as well. 🙂December 12, 2015 at 7:20 am #4448
Love it ladies. So happy to see you embracing the daily rituals 🙂
This makes me smile.December 18, 2015 at 4:27 pm #5139
I commit to a daily mediation in the morning after breakfast. Whether that is actually sitting in quiet time meditating or practicing my breathing and being present when i walk my dog. I will do this everyday until this E course is done and then work on a new ritual after that.
P.S I first begun daily meditations after meeting Brad in Edmonton and taking his meditation course. It was wonderful. Thank you!!January 5, 2016 at 12:01 pm #7146
Thanks for the kick in the butt about getting a daily ritual going. It’s just what I need. I plan to do 20 minutes of sitting meditation or a walking meditation every morning around 9 am before eating breakfast. The walking meditation is led by Erin Studland and includes affirmations about stepping into success. I plan to prepare for the meditations by writing my desire for the day, my doubts and fears about it, and positive affirmations to overcome fear.January 5, 2016 at 5:30 pm #7181
Hey Stephanie, stoked that you’re getting into it. Definitely an essential part of life as an entrepreneur.
I might be able to help with the meditation intention. For hte month of January, I am giving away my 21 day meditation eCourse. If it resonates, sign up.

I get up, make a cup of tea and take it back to bed. Then I get a journal out or read a chapter of a book that will stimulate reflection and thinking. Then I start to feel guilty that I’m still in bed and I get up for the second time. It is a very lazy ritual…January 7, 2016 at 3:05 pm #7572
Lazy or wise @pennyclaringbull ?
I’d say it’s better than rocketing outta bed, scrolling Facebook, drinking coffee and running out the door with mismatched shoes in a panic.
Great ritual!January 10, 2016 at 7:54 am #8263
1. Simple prayer to open Single Tarot card pull, study & reflection-10-15 min.
2. 10-20 Minute sitting meditation
3. Movement- 60 minutes in various combinations
4. Practice Positivity + Kindness with myself
Thanks for the reminder. Golf everyday? No matter what? Amazing. Awesome.January 10, 2016 at 5:08 pm #8381
Hello Hello fellow ECourse Campers! I have been treading water in the Tidal Basin of Chaos for far too long. Once valiantly thought I was going out to learn Surfing the Waves of Change, and ended up just treading water in Chaos! I own that journey, it was mired in loss, grief, massive changes in a small amount of time, life re-evaluation. I never learned the graceful art of Surfing the Grief Waves. But AHA! Small routines, often involving tea and coffee and copious amounts of journal writing and creative writing saved me from undertow currents, rocky shores and shocking but splendid Moves hither than thither in the Grief Waters and Basin of Chaos resulting in discovering blue man-o-wars and jellyfish lurking in the waves! Who worries about sharks when there are those proverbial elusive but sudden shockers, those pain-stributing whoppers lurking about bobbing at your side!
Now I’m on shore, no longer mired in the crashing waves of Chaos. Gratitude has always been a friend– so a daily list of 10 things to be grateful for is a daily ritual. Now that the Waves of Change have washed me ashore to find my way on New Roads of Discovery, New routines, new rituals must emerge. Instead of coffee, I’m switching to green drinks. I am forcing myself to discover new music, read new books. Its time to rediscover who I am as an orphaned adult. It doesn’t make me special, it just makes me human. Still, this too is uncharted territory and I need a new sense of Belonging and Purpose. That’s where this course comes in. This process will too become part of a daily action plan, the ritual of messages, updates, reading others progress, helping with questions, and climbing the rocky terrain of building something Epic, solo- but together.
Laughter Yoga is a daily ritual. Sometimes just in traffic, doing deliberate laughter exercises when Big Truck Man is hounding the bumper, and then laughing at the absurdity of it all, laughing as the Truck passes when the road splits into two lanes, laughing deliberately with laughter yoga exercises still more as we both stop at the same red lights just the same. Other times its laughter with the Laundry, laughter with feeding the dog, or with a friend’s Laughter Yoga structured routine on CD. Laughter for the sake of wellness is required daily in my world.
Note to self — Must keep answers shorter in future. Geepers I did not mean to write a small book as my answer!January 11, 2016 at 8:13 pm #9603
Thank you for sharing @bee.
I know what you mean by surfing the waves of grief and chaos.
My wife has a site that celebrates those waves, if you’re ever looking for some inspiration in that realm. Her site is http://www.celestemorris.com
I’m happy you’re here and choosing to laugh and be grateful each step of the way. Even happier that surrounding yourself with this community and experience is on your daily to-do’s.
Let us laugh, be merry and creat epic’ness alone and together!January 26, 2016 at 9:16 am #13680
My wife and I started a daily ritual Monday of getting out of the house by 8am and going for a walk down to the ocean (that never gets old), and then spending a focused hour in a coffee shop together working on our e-course adventure before work. It’s only Day 2, but both of us are already feeling powerful impacts of this simple commitment.
