Candles- I start every morning lighting one, taking a moment for myself before my mind and surroundings become filled with chaos. Meditation can be difficult at first, even intimidating. Lighting a candle is a centering, calming practice. The best days are those when I’m the first to rise and catch the sunrise simultaneously.
Green Juice- It makes me especially happy when someone else whips them up or cleans the juicer. However, I’m willing to wash & chop to get some of the green goodness my body craves. Nothing beats the blend of jalepeno, lemon, ginger, romaine, cilantro, celery and pear.
Books- Yes, the good old paper ones. There’s no better way to bring closure to your day, no matter what has crossed your path. Even if time is limited, a short dose of positivity will suffice. Miracles Now by Gabrielle Bernstein & A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson offer passages anyone can make time for. Keep them on your bedside table, as a constant reminder.
