Everyday rituals for a better everyday life
If change can seem overwhelming, our everyday rituals are quite the opposite. Because it’s the small, repeated actions that have the power to change your life. Take some time to identify your daily routines and how they impact your well-being. How can you add intent and purpose to make them more meaningful? Are there any rituals missing that could bring more joy to your day?
For the biggest impact – think small.
Rituals to rise and shine
There’s nothing like greeting a brand-new day with a life-affirming ritual that gives you energy and sets your intentions for the day. Whether it’s singing in the shower, making healthy green breakfasts, or a sense-awakening swim in cold water or walk through the woods – it’s in the morning that we set the tone for our day.
Rituals for a great start of the day
As the day kicks into high gear, it’s time to channel our energy into rituals that boost our mood and feed our soul. From singing to plants or pruning a bonsai, to cleaning with the kids or making the perfect cup of coffee (or a Sunday morning pancake bonanza), these are uplifting daytime rituals that make you laugh, think, and feel.
Rituals for a meaningful and energizing afternoon
Halfway through a busy day, it’s a meaningful practice to find some time to re-charge and re-connect with yourself and others. Be it taking a creative break to draw sketches or arrange flowers in your home, making a calming cup of home blended tea, or connecting with friends and neighbors over coffee and sweets. With purpose comes wellbeing.
Rituals to unwind and close your day
Evening is a time to play, create and learn new things. When most of us don’t work, there’s time for food, socializing and entertainment. It’s a time to enjoy the cheerful company of our friends, connect with our pets and play with our children. To cook healthy food, dine, and pursue our hobbies and interests.
Rituals for a good night and an even better tomorrow
Nighttime is a time to relax, reflect and prepare for a good night’s sleep. It’s when we slow down to light candles, meditate, and nurture our bodies with relaxing baths and stretching sessions. Or why not end the evening by prepping a healthy breakfast, to give a head start for some extra me-time in the morning?
