What’s your inner environment like as you start each morning? I’m talking about your energy levels, what your underlying mood or feeling is, the quality of that energy (action-taking mode? relaxed? quiet?). It’s a great practice to acknowledge whatever state you’re in and accept it without judgement. It means you’re paying attention to you, even if it’s just for a few seconds. And that you’re okay with yourself as you are.
Because the minute you start living your day, you’re being influenced by the energies of other people and the environment you’re in. That’s life! So take those precious first few moments of the day to really connect with you, chef.
