Warm Greetings as I hope you have settled into the New Year very well!

Remember; you are unique & special because the creator chose to create you 🙂

I hope that you & your loved ones are in sound physical & mental health; and wish you all the best in the new endeavors you desire to accomplish this year. Thank you for choosing me to walk with you in your unique journey for the limited time allocated to us by the universe!

Today, I want to share with you my morning regime with the hope that it will be helpful to you.

It is known as the 20/20/20 rule and I picked this up a few years ago from Robin Sharma. 

I have tweaked it a bit to suit myself. So, here it is:

The 20/20/20 rule is about conducting the first 60 minutes of your day in preparation for the day ahead.

As you wake up, spend the first 20 minutes exercising. It could be anything from taking a walk outdoors in fresh air, working out with a fitness trainer on YouTube to yoga or dance, any activity that you enjoy doing. I enjoy the ‘Happy Walking’ designed by Leslie Sansone to give you an easy yet effective workout especially for those who don’t find time to exercise. It is available for free on YouTube. You could easily spare only 15 mins to walk a mile. Exercise helps release the negative energy built in our body due to the emotional experiences we have on a daily basis. 

So, it is worth exercising every single day because it helps to keep us mentally fit as well. If one lesson we could take away from the pandemic in 2020 would be that our health is of utmost priority, everything else can wait! So, sweat it out all you dudes & dudettes 🙂

Next 20 minutes must be spent reading or watching something for self-development. It could be a book, a resourceful website with articles or videos on YouTube. There is a lot of free but precious information available on the internet. So, make best use of it. If you are new to this then you could begin by subscribing to the channels of Louise Hay, Hay House, Cheryl Richardson, Joe Dispenza, Abraham Hicks. Take your pick! There are a few free audiobooks available by some of these people who have made great contributions to mankind. 

And finally the last 20 minutes must be spent in planning the day. Remember the lesson we learnt in school “A stitch in time saves nine”; similarly if you plan your day in advance including the phone calls for the day, you save a lot of time, effort & beat the anxiety. Keep a diary & make your list of ‘things to do’ every morning so you don’t have to worry about forgetting something. This practice relaxes the mind & makes you efficient in time management. Remember the list prepared must be realistic. Sometimes we make unrealistic task lists & then feel demotivated when not achieved. You know the city in which you live for its character of traffic & other ways of working so plan your time realistically. The list could include professional as well as personal tasks. For eg. Calling your loved one who lives far away etc.

For me these practices are a reflection of Self Love & therefore non-negotiable. 

I feel nurtured when I tend to myself & my inner world. I would encourage you to make this a part of your life & with time you will see a positive change in yourself.

So, if you like the above then please implement and let me know how it goes!

Any suggestions on topics you wish to read are most welcome & much awaited!

Much Love,

Rashhmi Yadav
