My Daily Practice

My daily practice is something I treasure. It helps me stay grounded and centered, it gives me clarity and focus. It’s something that is essential in my life and so non-negotiable.

This doesn’t mean that it looks the same every day, that depends on how I'm feeling and what’s happening in my life at that moment. My practice tends to be made up of meditation, breath-work, movement, journaling and an oracle/tarot card pull.

Some days I do all of these things, others just one or two and some days just a moment of mindfulness may be all that happens.

Some days I have an abundance of energy and want to go for a long hike or some fiery movement, other days you may find me in Savasana for the whole time. 

I tend to do my practice first thing in the morning because (as i’m sure many of you can relate), as a busy mum and business owner the days often get away from me with work, after school activities, appointments, meal prepping & cooking etc and by the time the evening rolls around I am done! 

I know some people prefer to do their own thing in the evening and trust me, there’s no right or wrong time, it’s whatever works best for you.

Your daily practice is just that - yours! You are not doing it for anyone else so pick what makes you feel good. This is your time. It’s a way for  you to choose YOU every single day and put yourself at the top of the list for a few minutes. 

Do you have a daily practice? If not, here are some ways you can start building your own meaningful daily practice:

1. Start Small

Begin with just a few minutes a day. Consistency is more important than duration. Start with a manageable amount of time to make it easier to incorporate into your daily routine.

2. Choose What Resonates

Pick activities that bring you joy and peace. It could be anything from yoga to reading, or even a morning walk. The key is to choose practices that you genuinely enjoy and look forward to.

3. Set a Routine

Find a time that works best for you and stick to it. Whether it’s in the morning, during lunch, or before bed, making it a part of your daily routine helps it become a habit. Consistency is crucial in forming long-lasting habits.

4. Create a Space

Designate a special space for your practice. It doesn’t have to be big, just a spot where you feel comfortable and focused. Having a dedicated space can enhance the quality of your practice and help you get into the right mindset.

5. Be Patient

Building a daily practice takes time. Be patient with yourself and allow the routine to evolve naturally. It’s important to be kind to yourself and recognize that developing a new habit is a gradual process.

6. Reflect and Adjust

Regularly reflect on your practice. If something isn’t working, don’t be afraid to make adjustments. Your daily practice should be flexible and adapt to your changing needs and circumstances.

7. Celebrate Progress

Acknowledge and celebrate your commitment and progress, no matter how small. Celebrating milestones and recognizing your efforts can keep you motivated and reinforce the positive impact of your practice.

Remember, the goal of a daily practice is to nurture yourself and enhance your well-being. Embrace the journey and enjoy the process. Building a daily practice is a personal and evolving experience, and what matters most is finding what works for you and brings you joy.

What will you include in your daily practice?
