I’m Freaking Awesome!

Those of you that know me know I’m big into routines, especially early in the day. I believe the first hour of your day is the most important and should be used to set your intention and attitude for the rest of the day.

One of my favorite routines happens on the way to work. It’s isn’t soft or gentle. I don’t recite it quietly in my head. No, I scream it at the top of my lungs.

Here’s how it works:
1.) Turn on a song that gets you fired up. Something upbeat and energizing.
2.) Grip your steering wheel as hard as you can. Your knuckles should turn white. Literally try to contract every muscle in your body as you do this. This will restrict blood flow temporarily.
3.) As you tighten your entire body scream at the top of your lungs “I’m freaking awesome!” Hold absolutely nothing back. Scream literally as loud as you can.
4.) Immediately release the tension and feel the blood rush into every corner of your body.

The energizing nature of this drill is real and will instantly bring you to life. Give it shot and report your findings. I’d love your feedback. You’re freaking AWESOME!
