It can be 5 minutes or 30 minutes. Do what feels natural for you. It’s not about quantity versus quality.
The goal of a daily ritual or routine isn’t to do more stuff, but to do what matters. It’s dedicating time to catch your breath, to ground yourself in gratitude and mindfulness.
While building your daily routine, fill it with things that help you stay connected and centered. For me, it often looks like making a cup of coffee first thing and enjoying it. But for you, it could be stretching or running. It could be getting up before everyone else and sitting in silence.
Whatever it may be, having a set time each day where you ground and center yourself helps in this journey of living slowly and connected.
