I have all kinds of things I do on a daily basis. Writing 5 things in my gratitude journal every morning while my coffee brews. Walking through the library early in the morning when I’m there by myself, soaking in this beautiful place where I work. Taking care of my skin with delicious smelling and soothing moisturizers. Knitting every day, even if it’s only a few rows. Reading in bed before I go to sleep.
And making myself a cup of hot tea every afternoon, no matter the season. It’s delicious and something I’ve done for most of my life. Sometimes it perks me up and sometimes it soothes me. Sometimes I have a snack with it (I made pumpkin bread this week and that has been a delicious treat with my tea) and sometimes I just have the tea. Sometimes I think about all of the cups of tea I had with my mom and sometimes I just drink it and don’t think about anything. But I always, always have a cup of tea in the afternoon.
Rituals ground us in a very particular way. What are some of your daily rituals?
