Although there are many methods, I want to touch on three practical and effective ways to invite a peaceful environment into your life before your day begins.
With these three steps, you will start your day peacefully and keep that need to hurry to a minimal.
- Be aware of how you wake up. Stay clear of the need to rush-out-of-bed. Why do you need to rush out of bed? Don’t do that. Get out of bed slowly, which confirms a relaxed state. Enjoy the feeling of waking up slowly.
- Be aware of how fast you walk. From the moment you wake up to the moment you arrive at work, or getting your kids to school, slow down your pace. Walk slower and let all and any of your movements be at a slower pace.
- Be aware of your breathing and the speed of your voice. In your mornings, keep track of when you’re holding your breath while thinking or doing something; and talk slowly and quietly. Imagine speaking in an art gallery or watching a sunset.
Guaranteed, these three simple tips will create a bigger space in your morning for peace.
