We’re starting Week 3 of our Beautiful Mornings Challenge, and this week is about creating a mindful, sacred space.

In the first two weeks, you woke a bit earlier and took on a new task each week …. this week, instead of waking earlier and doing a third task, you are invited to take some time to adjust to the new wake time, and make this a sacred space where you practice mindfulness.

It’s great to give yourself time to adjust to waking earlier, even if you’ve only been trying to wake 10-20 minutes earlier than normal. The mind and body take time to adjust to a changing sleep schedule, so I recommend a very gradual change, where you give yourself time to adjust.

In addition, I suggest that you spend this week making this a mindful space for yourself:

These are incredible practices that will influence everything we do in our lives. Start this week!
