Overwhelmed with irritation with my inner knowing I need to take better care of myself. All because of the time my alarm will be going off.

So I can maintain feeling great in the present moment I live in.
Honouring commitments to myself has become a habit through my journey of accepting what is the best choice for me.

I need to chose 1 or three of these practices, when I was 20 years old making time for hot water and lemon, was all I managed to add into my life. At 30 hot water and lemon + reading a quote & dry body brushing + morning shower.
My morning quote has been for years, ‘this beautiful food is making me strong and slim, it is thanks to this beautiful food, I can accomplish as much as I do in one day’.
