Welcome to my very first blog post! Anchoring your day is a concept in self-care strategy. When we purposefully engage in a peaceful activity at either the start of our day, end of our day (or both!), we are feeding our souls and nurturing our spirit. One of my favourite things to do in the morning is to get up while everyone is still sleeping and sit peacefully in my comfy armchair with a freshly brewed coffee. This is my time to think about my day, scroll through Facebook or read for a bit (esp. if my book is really good!) What matters here is to choose an anchor activity that brings you a feeling of contentment. For some people this is prayer, for others meditation, a morning or evening walk, a cuddle with our pet, journaling, etc. By anchoring our day, we are reminded of the importance of the moments of simplicity, not only becoming more aware of and valuing our inherent need for peace but consciously making space for it as well.
