NO RESOLUTIONS, JUST RITUALS
Let’s try and change things up this year. Let’s not write down goals and never reach them.
Let’s not pretend we are going to completely transform our body or mind within 12 months and then be disappointed if we fall short.
Why don’t we just change our daily rituals, our views and aim to gain more control of our time and be respectful of our boundaries?
Start by creating rituals or daily habits. Little daily rituals that make your whole being sing with happiness.
Wake up and give thanks for all that you have. Stop looking over the fence and start looking within. If this means you need to wake up 10 minutes earlier each day to allow yourself some "you time", then let’s do it.
I love nothing more than having a tea and doing some yoga to start my day. I notice that when I don’t do this, my whole day can be thrown off.
Planning and being organised is a habit, one that can easily be learnt if you just chip away at it.
Plan your shopping lists, your meals and plan when you are going to enjoy some down time. There are so many amazing calendars and apps available these days to help you gain control. But keep it simple, you don’t want to waste your time organising your organiser.
Being organised allows you to have control of your time. Be sure not to over commit yourself, (trust me I have been the Queen of this), be respectful of your own boundaries. Don’t have them? Then start setting some. Boundaries can set you free.
Something or someone may miss out; you just need to decide what your priority is. Try to focus on you and your loved ones.
Be kind and patient with yourself and take each day as it comes.
But remember to check in with yourself at the end of the day, week and month. Are you happy with how you handled the obstacles life threw you, were you prepared? If not, that’s okay.
Life is a journey, not a race. Focus on setting your rituals for a better you.
Enjoy your story.
