You already know this. You've heard it a thousand times.
Meditation, mindfulness and getting up early can… you already know the LONG list of benefits!
How can we shift so that we have a little bit of “mindful me time” in the morning?
How is that possible when you have to do so many other things for your loved ones or when you gotta pay those bills.
Cue: Destiny’s Child, Bills Bills Bills
How can we begin the process of creating space for ourselves in the morning just like we make time to brush teeth, shower, put diapers on (lol – the babies of course) or take the dogs out for a spin.
You all said you want it.
Because on the days that we do take time to take a conscious moment before the day gets rocking and rolling there is a different magic floating through the air.
On the days where we actually do hold a little space for a big mindful breath and a little wiggling of the toes before the day starts to hit full swing and swerve – man we feel the lerve. (Thats love.)
On the days that you can commit to a little you and maybe a little yoga, you notice that you are not so reactionary and you are able to observe life with more ease and even a beautiful presence that is unique to you.
I learned that sometimes we have time to go to the gym and pump-it-up and sometimes we have a that sexy slow Sunday morning (my personal favorite.)
But most of the time – morning yoga or meditation takes a back seat leaving us to hope and dream for the future.
Ultimately we have to commit to making that “mindful me time” every morning to EVENTUALLY (maybe! someday!) set this ritual high up with the other necessities. Like – deodorant (sniff sniff), taking the kids to school and you said it… coffee.
So, we are working on a little project that, NO, will not solve all your problems of getting everything done in the morning without getting up at 4am.
At least not right away.
But, I think it will help.
Creating rituals that support us. That is what I’m all about and why I am thrilled to have you here with me having this conversation.
Ah, and as an entrepreneur and “best-life seeker” – I have always been enamored with rituals.
Using the practice to get back to our finest and truest self and setting up each day to counter a world that at times – steers us away from just that.
HOW TO – create time and space for yourself each morning.
Don’t wait for this project to be done.
Lets start marinating on this now.
Tomorrow, wake up and smell the roses!
