I love my morning routine, instead of grabbing a quick cup of coffee and rushing off to work, I take the time to consciously enter into my day. By waking up a little earlier I have time to do a little qigong or yoga, meditate, and sometimes, even take the dogs (Prana and Chi) for a little hike. This helps me to feel much more centered and balanced as I enter the workday, or any day. As a result I can deal with the ups and downs of life much better and have a more positive influence on those that I interact with. It’s SO worth that extra half hour or hour of proactive consciousness! I’d love to know what you do to keep yourself centered!
