This morning I was preparing my space before I started my blog writing for the day. I have 3 current blogs so I try to write at least one or two, sometimes three posts in a day. Anyhow, while I was getting ready I thought that I would share a part of what I do for my morning health routine and things I do throughout the entire day to remind myself to add in more of the things that add to my health regime in a positive way.
In the picture above is my morning warm lemon water with honey which is in one of my favorite little glass pots from the thrift store. And behind it is a carafe of water I drink from when I need water . I like to drink it from this stainless steel wine glass (also a thrift store find) because it makes the act or art of drinking it almost sacred to me and is a great visual reminder when I walk by.
I do think of any act that I do for the betterment of my health overall as sacred. My body is my temple and I am learning that the more sacred I make it, the more by body and soul both appreciates and receives it.
This morning, as part of my health routine, I listened to positive youtube videos and this one from Robin Sharma
called “How To 100x Your Productivity In A World Of Distraction” where he talks about our addiction to distraction. It seemed fitting for me today and I also was able to tie it into my thoughts around this blog post.
Where do we get distracted around doing things for our health? Maybe we were going to go for a walk after dinner but we started checking Facebook and then it got too late. Or maybe, we had great intentions of making that new healthy recipe for dinner, but we got distracted with texting someone and ran out of time so we just threw something together healthy or not.
So to bring this in for a landing the point I am trying to make with the water carafes, glasses, and teapot, is that it sets a definite intention for me. It reminds me to focus and to bring about, and to actually implement some healthy actions and to make them ‘sacred’.
My sister told me a story once of where, at her work, when it’s lunch time, she puts on her desk a little teapot that signifies to her that it is indeed time to break for lunch and to en-JOY the time and to en-JOY her lunch break. The teapot is the sacred piece that sets the intention for her to focus on the moment.
I have never forgotten her story and have implemented that philosophy in my own life.
I hope this blog post inspires you to find ways to help add intention and focus to your healthy daily additions. 🙂
