I hope everyone is having an amazing Sunday. Here in Florida the July is hot. We have rainy season, called hurricane season here. July is hot and humid, because of the rain. But is not raining every day, so this morning, actually I do it every morning, I made myself a cup of Earl grey tea with a slice of lemon and sat outside.
Usually mornings are quiet here, I enjoy listening to the birds singing, looking at the lake, sometimes seeing alligator. I feel more connected with the nature. Inspiration comes easier too.
I do my tea rituals on weekends. I don't like to rush. Sometimes I change the tea for cappuccino,or espresso. Who doesn't like a good cup of coffee.
Rituals and routine? What is the difference? For me routine is something I do without thinking, like brushing my teeth. Rituals I enjoy doing. Is like a ceremony. I buy myself beautiful tea and coffee sets. So I can look at the sets and feel happy. I pay attention to making the tea or coffee. Rituals are more relaxing, and with everything what is going on worldwide can be life saving.
Exercising, afternoon or evening walks can be another rituals, which I love to do too. Practice mindfulness is the point. To be present in the moment, not to rush things. Meeting with a friend for coffee can be ritual, when we do it every week.
Do you have some rituals? Something you enjoy doing? I would like to know what are your happy mornings.
Love, Beata 🌹
