I know it’s important to begin each day with self-care — simple rituals that get your mind and body right. Meditation. Exercise. Spiritual pursuits. Journaling. Intentionally carving out that time is so critically important to being a happy and productive human.
Except I don’t do it. It’s far easier for me to hop out of bed and race down the litany of to-do’s and handling “this one little work thing”. Before long, morning has turned to afternoon and the hamster wheel is still spinning. Oftentimes I’ve given away the best of my energy and brainpower to things that don’t require much of either.
