On Mindfulness and Morning Routines

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the
world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the
future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

A morning routine is something that I strive for and makes SUCH a big difference to my day.

In a perfect world, I would wake naturally before the rest of the family. I would be well rested and ready to start the day. I would get up and head downstairs to my meditation area and sit for around 15 – 20 minutes. With some Aromatherapy oils and music drifting in the background. Then I would go and make myself a cup of tea and write in my Journal for 20 minutes – a free flowing uninterrupted 20 minutes of prose, setting my goals and intentions for the day. I would then make myself some breakfast and celebrate the time alone, looking forward to the munchkins coming out for breakfast and starting their days.

This is what I strive for – it very rarely happens but when it does the day is usually wonderful. It is amazing what giving a little time to yourself can do.

Now, if only it was that easy to awaken at 5 am….
