Now, I know some of the Pagan community kind of shudders when the word routine. They go "Routine? But that gets boring!" or they make a face like this:
But a morning routine, it helps, and it is a sort of prelude to the rest of the day. How so? Well, allow me to explain my morning routine, and what it implies, reminds me of, and encourages me to do. Perhaps it will inspire to form a morning routine of your own
- I thank the Gods for another day.
- I thank Helios for his existence
- I perform a devotional
Sure, sometimes I go "ugh, do I have to do this? I wanna just go eat already" but something inside me goes "Yes, yes you do" and I've always felt the better for it.
