The quality of our lives is directly proportionate to the quality of our habits.
And we all have habits and rituals, whether we are intentional about them or not.
Even if we shamble out of bed at the latest possible moment, run a comb through our hair, throw on some clothes and rush to work, grabbing a coffee en route before we arrive 15 minutes late, again, that's still a routine.
The key, therefore, is to be intentional about our daily actions - deliberately crafting routines that invigorate our body, sharpen our mind and feed our spirit. Every day.
