The first thing I do is make myself a hot cup of water with lemon.
Madison suggested I start my day with this, and wouldn't you know it?
I love it!
Then I make myself comfortable in this special spot.
I used to do all this in my bedroom, but I found that having a separate place to begin my day made it a bit more special.
The first thing I do is fill and start my diffuser.
I am late to this essential oil craze,
but am finding it very helpful and comforting.
My favorite one for the morning is peppermint.
It seems to get my mind awake and moving!
Then I get my prayer book out of this little basket I keep near my chair.
I have found that keeping all my things together means an easier start to the day. : )
Prayers are first.
Then I read some of this book...
My current favorite Mindfulness Book.
Next, I jot a few thoughts in this little journal.
I am on my sixth year...this is a new one...and I love looking back at the ways we spent our days in previous years. I can imagine my grandchildren reading these words years from now. : )
Lastly, I choose one of my favorite meditation apps and spend five to ten minutes clearing my mind, focusing on the moment, and refreshing my soul.
There you have it, my friends.
My morning routine.
Someday it may involve an exercise portion.
Ok. Maybe not. : )
I'd love to hear about your mornings, my friends.
Have a wonderful day!
