I don't know what happened yesterday but I got up late and hit the ground running without my morning tea ritual! And instead of allowing myself that space, I pushed to move forward in a vain effort to try and 'catch up'. A Tea Priestess should know better right? Well instead of beating myself up with the 'shoulda, woulda, couldas', I chose to do a morning reboot. Just as you can reboot your computer you can reboot your day at any time.
Allow yourself 5-15 minutes for full reboot. Here are the steps:
First, get still. You could hop back into bed for 5-10 minutes, use the 5-10 minute 'Holy Dinger' meditation or you could use an online meditation timer if you have to be at your desk. During this time check in with your body giving it gratitude for all it's done for you and seeing what it needs to have a good day.
Next pull a card if you feel called to (Gaian Tarot is my current favorite), say a prayer or affirmations to yourself~you could even be bold and say "I love you" to yourself in the mirror!
Finally, bless yourself with a drink (any drink will do but I find this most effective with water, tea or coffee). Whisper words of love and gratitude into your drink (I'm a firm believer in Dr. Emoto's work). Drink up the love and gratitude and let it fill you up!
Then go have a great day!
So on those days when you feel like you've gotten up on the wrong side of the bed do a reboot and see what a difference a few minutes break can give you.
