I admit I have been working a bit too hard recently. As a result, I am having to now limit my screen time and engage in my Daily Practice forcibly, even though I don’t want to.

It can be quite a grind but to not enjoy engaging in your Daily’s is exactly what they are there for.

Well, what is a Daily Practice? Well, nothing esoteric here; it is just an activity you do every day. It stems from the daily life of monks, a contemplative lifestyle.

Monks, Priests, the devout (of which I am not - before this turns theological) have a series of practices or chores that they carry out daily, to the best of their ability, every day for the rest of their lives. It helps centre them. It bring focus. Daily Practice brings the monks back to prayer and Daily Practice brings me back to myself.

Should I need to set up a better set of daily’s? I doubt I will for the foreseeable. At the minute, they are…

  • Blog on Ijo Pona
  • Have an engaging chat with Kathryn

Both of these are communication orientated. I am after all in the communication business. Here is another I hope to incorporate in to my year, for 2021.

I will read for an hour when I wake up.

This might not sound much, but I will give time to myself by reading for an hour when I wake up and not rush in to the day. This will hopefully cause a paradigm shift from what is in place now.

At the minute, my alarm goes off and I rush through to my office to switch on my computer and I sit there, in my pyjamas answering emails before I have brushed my teeth. This causes a panicked mindset from the start of the day to the end, most people would constantly be in a flap.

Work from home sure, don’t live in your office. Switch off.

Speak soon?

Ps - I am an authentic human at the other end of this, leave a comment in the footer and say Hi!’
