When you’re the head of a busy family, your needs often get smushed down to accommodate everyone else’s needs.  Your kids need your attention; your spouse does, too.  Each day presents a challenge:  How can I make it through the day without letting the busyness get to me and my stress level?

Can I ask you something?

How do you wake up in the morning? 

Groggy, out-of-sorts, rushed,…Do you feel you’re living your life on purpose?  Or, do you feel like life is slipping by you by?

Part of living your life on purpose is to establish morning rituals.  Here are some ideas to help you live more consciously and more aligned with your purpose:

When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love…~Marcus Aurelius

Engage all your senses during your morning rituals–touch, smell, sight, hearing, taste.

Life is a gift and it is too short to spend in default mode.  So many people wake up and go about their day unconsciously.  You don’t have to live by default.  Start creating a meaningful life by beginning your day in a meaningful way.
