Creating Rituals

How do you start your day?
How do you end your day?

These are two questions that are very important and could make or break your day. Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up ten minutes late and your running out the door still doing your hair & make up and sculling down a cup of coffee. Then the rest of your day just gets worse and nothing goes to plan. Simply creating a morning ritual can be all it takes to set you on the path to success, whether it be enjoying a cup of green tea and doing some morning yoga or having a warm lemon water and going for a morning walk or even pulling an oracle card, meditating and setting your intentions for the day. These are just a few of my go-to morning rituals which I sometime combine depending on time. Either way whether your time poor or not I believe creating a morning ritual that suits your lifestyle is one of the most important and effective things you could do to help create your perfect day.

As for those nights when your just stepping in the door at 630 and you’re trying to figure out what to cook for dinner. There are jobs around the house that need doing such as washing & dishes etc. and after the children are fed, bathed and in bed your climbing into bed yourself at about 1030. Your mind won’t stop racing thinking about all the things that you have to do tomorrow and you finally fall asleep at about midnight. Creating a night-time ritual is paramount when it comes to having a great quality of sleep as well as heading to bed at a decent time so you get your full 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Take some time for yourself each night to unwind and calm your mind from the busy day, pour yourself a lovely herbal tea like chamomile or peppermint and pick up a book or write in a journal. Run yourself a relaxing detox bath with some Epsom salt or Himalayan salt and add in some lovely lavender essential oil, light some candles and soak away all your cares and worries from the day. These are a few of the ways I like to unwind at the end of my day, they also help to ensure a good night sleep and that you wake up refreshed and ready for your day ahead.
