Several months back, I went on a course that on reflection, kind of changed my life (that's for another post though!). This course taught me how to get into 'alignment' in the morning - in other words, feel good, before I really started the day and allowed the world's information to start affecting me.
Getting into alignment, or feeling good, was essentially doing one or two things, when you wake up, that you enjoy. It's not about checking your phone as soon as you open your eyes or turning on the news. For those who are dealing with depression, anxiety and chronic pain, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and negative first thing in the morning, especially if we're bombarded by emails or reading about tragic events around the world.
Putting some kind of routine in place, though I had a loose one already, was huge for me. My days began to be brighter, I felt more positive, my depression lifted and I felt more capable of taking on my disease.
And so, one of my most recent posts on Endometriosis News, is about how having a morning routine might be able to support you on your journey with endometriosis.
