It’s a simple question, but it doesn’t always have a simple or straightforward answer. For many of us, it’s easy to get lost in the intricacies of what each day brings, and have a different answer depending on the day. However, the value that having a clear morning routine that is focused on prayer, taking a moment to breathe, and connecting with loved ones cannot be overstated!
Try it yourself — tomorrow morning, don’t pick up your phone immediately after waking up, and instead take a few minutes to make your morning offering in prayer to God. When you’re done, have a conversation with someone close to you, and really focus on connecting with them. Finally, when you’re ready to begin the rest of your day, take a minute or two and simply breathe deeply — and just like that, the day is barely underway, and you’re already ahead!
