WAKE 30 MINUTES EARLIER THAN YOUR HOUSEHOLD
While not technically resting, creating space in the morning can create an unparalleled sense of calm throughout your day. Rise early to make the most of the peacefulness morning brings. Boil the kettle and make yourself a cup of your favourite hot drink – find a comfortable spot where you can sit and ease gently into the morning. This is a beautiful way to set your intentions for the day and allows you time to wake without the interruptions and the hustle and bustle of early morning in your household. Do this for a week and notice how much calmer and more centred you feel before you start your day. transition into rest. We simply put our head on the pillow and expect to switch off. A simple meditation focusing on your breath is a way to ease into rest. Lie flat on the floor, yoga mat or on the bed, or sit supported in a chair, whatever you prefer. Bring your focus to your breath moving in and out of your nostrils. If you need additional help there are many wonderful guided meditation videos/audios available online. Use these as a guide to help you find what works for you.
Picking up a book and relaxing is one way of restoring your energy.
