(if we're not getting up to witness a sunrise like this, that is!)
Here's 3 peace-inducing ways to warm-up for your day as your computer comes to life each morning:
Stretch. awakening all those helpful muscles which have been softly healing and supportive all night. try to touch the ceiling and do a few belly-dance style figure of eights (easy how-to, here!) as you prepare your morning hot drink, switching on your core muscles for the day.
Brush your hair. I love the first hair-brush of the morning. It awakens my scalp and I like to think, sets my brain a-tingling! It's also a little act of self-love which makes us feel cherished and pretty. Focus not on the way your hair looks as you brush it, but how your roots and scalp feels with the rush of fresh new blood to them.
Make a wish. Even just whispered into the computer screen, "please work well for me today". If there is an event you're nervous about or dreading, instead of worrying or gathering strategies ad rabbit's feet to make sure it all goes to plan, immediately ask the Angels to make everything okay (and it is done). You will be surprised just how peaceful you feel after this one simple thought.
Happy thanksgiving to my beautiful American friends! I love your presence in my life. This is for you, especially...
"Let gratitude be the prayer on which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good." - Maya Angelou
