How often do you wake up in the morning and race around to start the day? With the pressures of work, family and other commitments, slow mornings can be few and far between. But the thing is, a day started slowly is a day started with intention. A day started slowly can make everything seem more vibrant and bright.
In this ritual, you’ll be creating an intentional ‘slow morning’. Maybe on a Sunday when there’s not much else on, or maybe you’ve got a day off work and feel like taking a relaxed approach.
Watch how slowing down in the morning transforms your whole day.---
