Whether it’s a morning cup of coffee, daily doggie walk, nighttime skincare regimen, or family game night, our rituals are deeply related to our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. We create rituals to ground, connect, nurture, and comfort us.
Rooting our rituals in purpose and intention, and infusing them with sensory elements like scent and sound, boosts our connection to them and amplifies their benefits. We can even elevate the meaning in our otherwise mundane habits by practicing them with greater mindfulness and gratitude. The following infograph offers suggestions for rituals aligned with each of the four pillars of wellness, as well as practice at home and work.
