Building Foundation Through Self Love
Now is the time when we All are being called to dive deep within and investigate what we find inside in order to structure the life we would like to live.
What habits, patterns are outdated and in need of a software upgrade?
Being stuck at home is an excellent opportunity to start align things with our highest path and purpose. To set a steady routine as a building ground of love and success on all planes of our lives.
Most of us find it hard to set a routine due to our everyday stresses and have to's, but the key is once the routine is set, which takes around 21 days (according to several science studies) to become a ''normal'' pattern to our subconscious, once it's set it's automatic.
The importance and benefits of a steady routine is countless.
A consistent morning routine can offer us a time to practice intentional mindfulness and/or prayer, leading to feelings of greater peace as we go through our day. Feeling productive in our day can lead to a more peaceful evening and, in turn, a better night's sleep and a refreshed morning the next day. As you can see this is creating a spiral of positivity into our everyday life.
So let Us dive into eight steps that takes under 30 minutes to align yourself holistically all day, every day:
