The amazing book 'Miracle Morning' by Hal Elrod will change your perspective of morning rituals or routines. This vlog/episode will share some of my biggest take home messages from this book - focusing on the Life S.A.V.E.R.S that help you start your day focused, inspired, on track and in charge (of your life too!) all by spending intentional time on six key areas. I've adopted a morning ritual that I love by following the suggestions in this book, but I want to be able to summarise these for you - perhaps with a new perspective on how you think and what mornings might have to do with turning that all around.
I've spoken about morning rituals before, but I can't stress enough how a well thought out ritual - whether it be five minutes or an hour - can impact the rest of your morning, or indeed, the rest of your day!
This video talks about how a morning ritual can be transformative and set the scene for a positive day moving forward and some of the things you might consider for your own morning rituals.
So you don't have time to do twenty minutes of meditation a day? Or maybe you're a bit intimidated by the whole meditation process, but know of how incredible the benefits supposedly are.
Well perhaps it's time to start micro-meditating? This video runs through ways you can build as little as a minute of meditation practice into your daily life, so that you can find ways for the 'busy' to be balanced with the 'blissful'.
Sometimes walking for pleasure or for your health and fitness can come second to higher intensity exercise. But what if you reframe walking so that it is also a conscious intention practice - one where you can practice mindfulness and 'meditate' while you do it.
This video blog explains some of the benefits of mindful walking and how you can bring a different kind of meditation into your life. No equipment needed, just you and wherever you are - eyes wide open!
It's often hard for you to find time for yourself - for rest, renewal and feeling connected to who you are and how you want to feel. Powerful rituals can be transformative and they can boost your energy levels, help manage anxiety and increase your productivity every day. But most of all, they help you feel amazing!! This week's video is all about changing the word 'routine' to 'ritual' and seeing how that can change the way you feel about what you do everyday.
Here at the Breath Between I am all about fitting rest and renewal into the nooks and crannies of your busy life - finding rituals that you can fit around all the other fantastic things that you do that you don't want to or can't give away. BUT - there is a big but here though - if you CAN get away on retreat and separate yourself from the normality of your every day routine, then you will transform your life and your relationship with yourself.
