mid-week meditation #8

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m in the midst of a fun, hectic, enthusiastic week of teaching journalism & public speaking camp for a group of fourth- and fifth-graders. Even — especially — during these busy days, I am working to cultivate a morning routine of calm, joy and gratitude. This means getting up early enough to meditate, do a bit of yoga, eat a healthy and filling breakfast, pack a nutritious lunch, and have plenty of time to drive to work without feeling rushed. {Which also means going to bed early enough to get a good night’s sleep … something that is a challenge for me, a natural night owl!}

Here’s a meditation that might be helpful for anyone else who is also trying to savor the mornings!

morning quote

Questions of the morning:

  • What is your morning routine?
  • What are the “little things” that refresh your heart?

  1. ben started a new job teaching (5th grade science and computer programming) so he has to leave for work around 6 am everyday. initially this was super hard but i’m finding that i really enjoy getting up around 5 and having a relaxing morning before work to run, read both my bible and a fun book, drink coffee, etc. it’s so nice!

    • That does sound really nice, Sarah! You are a champ. I can imagine that it would be super hard at first to get up so early, but then that your body adjusts a bit and gets used to the early wake-up time. I hope that Ben’s new job is going great! Have a wonderful week! 🙂
