New habits in the morning take time to Establish – How to enhance the dialogue in your writing.
Starting Your Day Off on the Right Foot
Use all of these things found in real life to enhance the dialogue in your books as you write. ~ Marjorie J McDonald
How do you get out of bed?
Not everyone gets out of bed in the morning readily and in a good mood.? Some can bounce out of bed, eagerly anticipating the day.? Some will talk your ear off if there?s anyone who will listen. Others groggily stagger out of bed reluctantly, and you better not speak to them, or they?ll bite your head off.
Which of these describes you?
Which of these describes you?? Or do you fall somewhere in between these things?? Which would you rather be?? Typically, the person who bounds out of bed wide awake is the person who gets more done in the morning and is happier to do it.? It isn’t always the case that the morning person is more joyful.?? Some get just as much work done; it only takes them longer to get to it.
If you?re not happy with your morning habits and want to change, it can happen, but it has to be a concerted effort on your part.? Many people don?t want to change.? They?ve been that way for years, and it works for them.? On the other hand, who wants to be an old grouch in the morning, making yourself and everyone else miserable?
You can become a happy early riser and make it a habit you will embrace.? First, admit your current method of waking up in the morning isn?t working, and you want to change.
Try Something New
Be willing to try a different method and realize it may not be the first way you try to transform yourself into a new you.
The technique is essential.? Prepare yourself for bed with the same routine if possible.? With children and spouses, this is sometimes difficult.? Start with a healthy diet. ?Stay away from heavy, fatty foods and sugars before bedtime.? Eat dinner early.? Of course, avoid any caffeine or other stimulant before bedtime.
Try the healthy early dinner a few nights and make a note as to how you feel the next morning.? Is it working?? If not, don?t give up.? You need to add more and different methods to your morning madness.
Exercise daily.? The better shape your body is in, the better it will sleep, and the better you?ll feel each morning.? Morning exercise is usually more helpful than just before bedtime. A nighttime activity can get the blood flowing too much for you to fall right to sleep.
Do something pleasant before going to bed to put you in a good mood.? Read a good book for a few minutes.? Please don?t get so caught up in a book that you can?t put it down.? Don?t balance your checkbook or pay bills before going to bed.? Money worries are one of the leading causes of sleeplessness.
Anticipate Your Morning
Anticipate the morning routine.? Don?t give yourself something boring to look forward to seeing. Make time for at least some morning exercise, even if it?s just stretching.? Perhaps, sit outside and greet the sunrise with a morning devotional.? Count your blessings and plan your day. New habits in the morning take time to establish. They take more than a day to accomplish.? Be patient and willing to experiment.? Soon you?ll like yourself better in the morning and so will your family.
New habits in the morning take time to Establish. Learn how you feel in real life and transfer that feeling to the dialogue in your books.
