How do you cope?
Do you hustle straight into your day without a moment’s pause or hide under the duvet and wish it would all go away? Today’s post is a short Morning Prayer you can use to have a peaceful start to your day.
How Do You Start Your Day?
Do you ever feel like Sisyphus, dammed to eternity as you lie in bed and ponder how you are going to fit everything in?
Like most of you, my life has been a series of highs and lows. Over the years I have come to appreciate the importance of having a peaceful and quiet start to my day and consciously make the effort to find ways for this to happen.
There is growing research and popular blogs which highlight the benefits of having a morning routine http://lifestyle.ca.msn.com/living/inner-you/morning-routines-of-10-successful-people-and-why-you-should-wake-up-earlier and I regularly start my day with a morning prayer as part of my morning routine.
If you would like a peaceful and quiet start to your day, the following Morning Prayer may just be what you need.
How To Pray…
You don’t need any special equipment, tools or fancy apps to pray. You don’t even have to be religious. All you need is to take a few calming breaths, set your intention and say whatever is on your heart.
I wrote the following prayer earlier this week as part of my daily journaling practice. Please feel free to use it as part of your daily morning routine rituals.
