Just Another Day
Our days our organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?
The first thing that popped into my mind was GOING TO BED!! See, it involves several pleasant little rituals. Heating up my new electric mattress pad; putting some lovely aromatic essential oil in my diffuser that scents my room all night; checking my alarm, especially if I don’t have to get up early; setting my pillows just right for reading; placing my bedside light just right, resting in the knowledge that it’s on a timer and will turn itself off around midnight, when I’m usually deep in dreamland.
When I was in my teens, I got into the habit of reading myself to sleep. Many of my dreams have evolved from a book I’m reading, and can be quite colorful. Sometimes they wake me up, but not often. I love my sleep, and I have an incredibly comfortable bed. In the winter, I put my down-filled comforter on my bed so that I’m sandwiched between my heated mattress pad and my cloud-soft comforter. It’s like being wrapped in a fluffy cocoon.
Maybe I should go back there for a while. I just got a call that my first client for the day cancelled.
