When you get the itch to start taking better care of yourself, you may wonder where to start.
While there's certainly no wrong place to start, focusing on the bookends of the day has been incredibly helpful for me.
I have a morning and evening ritual to support my preferred lifestyle.
A ritual is a meaningful routine with deeply symbolic meaning, inspired by personal values.
Rituals are as much a spiritual practice than a physical endeavor.
Start small with 30 minutes at both ends of the day and decide, based on what's important to you, which activities you want to prioritize.
What you decide to do doesn't matter as much as the fact that you wanted to do something at all--desire IS success!!
Choose activities that are restorative in nature, helping you balance the demands of your day.
Over time, as you show up for yourself, your ritual will become more than what you do, it becomes who you are.
"Ritual is to the internal sciences what experiment is to the external sciences." Timothy Leary
