November 21, 2013
By Sheryl Paul
When we first wake up in the morning, we're in a highly vulnerable state.  Fresh from the world of dreams and the unconscious, it always takes a few minutes for our psyche to plant fully back into our bodies.  The way you begin your morning sets the tone for the rest of the day.

We fail to give ourselves attention by spending a few quiet minutes attending to our inner world upon awakening, we send ourselves the message that everything else and everyone else is more important.  Do practice:
1.    Mindfulness
·         helps you come into the present moment and ground yourself to the here and now
2.    Writing down your dreams
·         can help you honor the vulnerable space of morning and fill yourself with soulful energy
3.    Writing Journal
·         one of the most effective ways to know yourself and fill your inner well with self-love and self-knowledge
·         An effective journaling technique should leave you feeling more clear and grounded than when you started
4.    Simple yoga exercises
5.    Opening the window or step outside and let the light rush in
