Build your routine around fundamental practices that help you to be relaxed and in your center.
Don’t try to fit them in somewhere. Make your life fit around them.
When we brush our teeth everyday, we know we are protecting them and setting a standard of protection that is constantly in place. We don’t just brush our teeth every second or third day or when they get sore, like an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff.
With our mental and emotional well-being, and often our physical, we so often wait till we’re sore before we try to use a practice to help. It’s not enough. We need to set a baseline of care by having a daily consistency.
If you really want inner calm and to create a new baseline for your nervous system long term it requires everyday practice.
