What’s a perfect morning for you? Do you know? I don’t mean all the things you wish wouldn’t happen. What are the things you wish would happen. For me it’s:
Time to cuddle with my family
Why is it important? How your start your day greatly impacts your mood and well being. Starting off each day hungry, tired, angry, rushed, and feeling generally out if sorts is no way to live. This leads to feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, burned out, anxious, and will eventually rob you of your health and vitality. Especially if you factor in that most people have draining jobs and home lives.
You can’t have a perfect morning every morning. But you can cultivate good habits that in time turn into ways to recharge your batteries. Trying to leave rechargeing to just the weekends is folly. If you think about the amount of daily maintenance you require (food, shower, oral hygiene, exercise, personal grooming) pushed to only one day a week you get the idea.
In 2017, as you think over your resolutions to be a new and better you I have a challenge. I challenge you to think of new and better ways to be kind to your self and give yourself daily care. Find ways to recharge your batteries daily so that you can accomplish your goals. It doesn’t matter if the morning or self care is perfect. Only that you try to do something everyday. Give yourself the gift of regular body work, acupuncture, and perfect mornings instead of fad diets, new pills, or potions. #getpoked.
