6 Ways To Survive Routine Thinking

The question came after I sat with my husband and did breathing exercises for 20 minutes and then yoga for 40 minutes.

An hour of peace, expanding our lungs, minds and bodies before we started our day. We looked in each other’s eyes and laughed knowing how easy it is to rush past the morning and get right to whatever busyness the day brings.

In a moment of clarity, I realized how often I embrace the routine of thinking I’m tired instead of the routine to build strength of body, mind and spirit.
