Healthy Morning Habits

How we start our morning impacts the rest of our day, and in my book a healthy morning routine is essential for our physical, mental, and spiritual health. Looking to start implementing some healthy morning habits? Then consider trying to use the S.A.V.ER.S method below.


S.A.V.E.R.S

Hal Elrod, the author of “The Miracle Morning” recommends using the S.A.V.E.R.S method to start your day off on the right foot. This acronym stands for silence, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and scribing. These action steps work hand and hand to support you with having a successful day. Now let's break these elements down.


  • Silence. Start every morning with intentional silence.

  • Deep breathing

  • Meditation

  • Prayer

  • Gratitude

  • Reflection


  • Affirmations. Program yourself to be confident and successful.

  • Create your affirmations by journaling your answers to these:

  • What you want your ideal self and life to look like

  • Why you want it

  • Who you need to be to achieve this

  • What you are committed to doing to attain this

  • Add inspirational quotes

  • Read your affirmations daily

  • Add to your affirmations as you grow and evolve

  • Reflect on or journal what you love about yourself

  • Write down your strengths

  • Tap into your emotions while doing your daily affirmations


  • Visualization. Imagine what you want to accomplish and mentally rehearse what action steps you will need to take to achieve it.

  • Get in a comfortable position, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and envision you accomplishing what you want and what you are doing to achieve it.


  • Exercise. Move your body.

  • Stretching

  • Yoga

  • Pilates
