My first ritual of the morning is...
"I'm a tea freak - I mean fanatic. First I start with water + Dr. Ohhirra's Probiotic, then move to Steep Rise's Citrus Tea with lemon + Ginger People's Ginger Juice, and finally to PGTips with almond milk, one right after the other. I've started a new rule for myself, which is to keep my phone on airplane mode for the 30 minutes I take to get up from bed, prepare for the day, steep all the teas and sit down at my desk."
Whether a morning meditation or afternoon cup of tea, the rituals we practice serve us more than we realize. They are our life’s bookends, moments we rely on and enjoy. For mamas especially, these small ceremonies are what gets us through the day. At A Wild Dove, we are so inspired by rituals, that we’ve asked some of our favorite women to share their smallest, most celebrated acts that help them feel their best.
