I know what I have coming up for the week, I know where everyone needs to be and if I need to enlist help I can.
Meditation & Movement: Incorporating that stillness of meditation is really important for me. It helps me focus my thoughts and calm my mind. Also by exercising or moving my body in some form it helps me release some tension and stress that may have been left over from the prior day. It can also give me a boost of energy that I need for day.
Nourishment: By feeding my body with good healthy food it gives it fuel for the day. I will not be hangry walking around or dealing with the days challenges.
