Would you like to be more mindful during your day?
How you start your day has a lot to do with how well your day goes.
Do you get up late every morning, swill down a cup of coffee and dash out the door or are you the person who gets up early and spends some time reflecting before the day?
I’m a firm believer in the latter. I wake up at 5:30 or so meditate, write, read, and then go feed my ponies.
Try it! Wake up an hour earlier than usual. At first, it may seem hard but once you have reset your internal clock it will become easier and you will relish this time of contemplation.
During this time you could start a meditation practice, do an Alexander Technique Lie Down, read something inspirational, write in a journal or spend some quiet time with yourself.
Perhaps this is the time you would like to go for a walk or a peaceful stroll. I wrote about strolling earlier. You can check out that article here.
This time you dedicate to yourself is self-care and guess what? Self-care is health care.
Not one person on this planet can take care of you as well as you can take care of yourself.
Now is the time to take care of yourself by building in time during the day when you can recharge and rest.
Creating an early morning practice of meditation and journaling, reading and reflection is a great way to start off the day.
I’ve created a little video or VLOG to spur you along! (No pun intended!) Click on the ponies below to see the video.
