With the changing of seasons, often comes a new routine. Have you thought about adding a new ritual to your morning routine?
This year my newest ritual is walking down our mountain and back up again. I wear my favorite work out clothes, so I feel good, add some lip gloss, and pull my hair back. The walk is steep and exhilarating and totals about 1 mile round trip. I jog the first half and walk the second, but my goal is to be able to run all the way. My girls enjoy jogging down to school with me, back packs in tote. And I am setting a good example of how they should care for their bodies as they become young women.
In the morning while the air is still crisp and smells so good, try taking a walk, breathing in deeply, working up a good sweat, and caring for your health, you heart, your body.
You might find it to be the most amazing time of your day, just as I have. When I arrive home, I feel ready to take on the day – no matter how tired I was when I rolled out of bed. My mind is clearer, I have more energy, and taking that cool shower after walking in the door is totally refreshing.
Here are some other ideas for creating a morning ritual:
- Make Time for God.
- Wake up without waking up the kids.
- Sip some herbal tea.
- Light some candles in the kitchen early in the morning.
- Complete your Daily Tasks.
- Take a walk or exercise.
- Wake up with a smile.
- Eat breakfast together as a family.
- Enjoy a time of family worship.
- Review your plan of action in your Home Management Binder.
