We often want to create a more present lifestyle, but adding an extra morning routine can stand in the way of successfully integrating it into your life. Think about collapsing activities you already do to accommodate your intentions without using up extra time out of your day. If you have wanted to take a moment and envision each day, why not add it to mindfully cooking your meal? Feel your love going into the food, the hopes and aspirations of the day pouring into the cauldron of your heart, blessing your food. Then as you enjoy your meal, allow joy and gratitude to overcome you as you receive the nutrients and nourishment for your body. You can begin with something as simple as one word and intention and then add on as your little ritual evolves with you. Never underestimate the power of intent to shift your live into a deeper alignment with your heart. Mindfully consuming your food will also spill over into other activities once the habit is fully established and flourishing.
