How do you want your day to be?
When we wake up, our first thoughts often dictate how the rest of our day will unfold. Many of us go straight to the news, our phones, our work worries. I am guilty.
When we do this, we have downloaded the world to our psyches. Not always a healthy idea. And needless to say, we are living in anxious times now.
Instead, why not give yourself the gift of 10 or more minutes to set a peaceful and centered tone to your day? It is easy …..if we are intentional.
Just like I take time to brush my teeth, wash my face, and eat a healthy breakfast, I devote 10-15 minutes to enter the conscious world with positivity.
By meditating, or simply sitting and focusing on a pleasing image (out the window, a painting, your cat, a plain wall) we become still and centered. Add simple self talk like affirmations, hopes for the day, or wishes for a creative and productive few hours.
In this ever expanding world of technology there are so many good tools to guide us.
