Create a Nourishing Morning Routine

Aug 30, 2021

Create a Nourishing Morning Routine

Create a Nourishing Morning Routine to Support Your Health

Let’s talk about creating a nourishing morning routine. I appreciateย @jamesclearย and his book, Atomic Habits.
His work partners powerfully to give us an effective platform for creating a dinacharya or daily routine from an Ayurvedic standpoint.

What is a habit?
Something we repeatedly do – including our thoughts and how we construct our day. We become the sum of all these small elements.

How It Works

Clear shares that the science of building new habits arises in the following way:

Four simple steps: cue, craving, response, and reward.

Cue: Internal or external piece of info that predicts a reward (in the modern world, this could be fame, money, sex, friendship, health, etc)

Craving: Framework of our desireโ€ฆ. we crave not the habit itself but the state/promise it delivers us to. The thoughts, feelings, and emotions we have are what transform a cue into a craving.

Response: Enacting an actual habit which can be a thought or an action and is predicated on our ability to do it.

Reward: Essential the goal of every habit, the outcome. Clear states that โ€œWe chase rewards because they serve two purposes: (1) they satisfy us and (2) they teach us

If behavior is insufficient in any of the four stages, it will not become a habit.

Here is his method on how to create a good habit

1st law (Cue) – Make it obvious.
2nd law (Craving) – Make it attractive.
3rd law (Response) – Make it easy.
4th law (Reward) – Make it satisfying.

Iโ€™ll share an example.
I live in the desert and of course, ITโ€™S HOT!
I was not hydrating enough because I donโ€™t get excited about plain water and ended up getting headaches from dehydration.

Obviously, i need more water. However, I was not in the routine of doing it early in the day. So, I made it attractive by making a tea in the morning from blends that I have (easy). And viola, no more headaches from dehydration. Appealing!

Clear states that whenever you want to change your behavior, you can ask yourself:
How can I make it obvious, attractive, easy and satisfying?

I’ll be sharing more on the specifics of what is recommend from an Ayurvedic standpoint in future posts.
