There’s something to be said for those individuals who have quiet time in the morning to meditate and spend time with themselves and God during the quiet hours of the morning. They tend to be less stressed and happier people. I know people personally who meditate and are better for it. They are the see the cup half full vs. half empty crowd.
One of my New Year’s promises was to begin reading the bible in the morning before I do anything else. Yes anything else even check my blog and email. I did very good the first 30 days of this personal challenge because I downloaded a daily devotional from my Holy Bible app about “How to Maximize Your Life”. It is a 30-day plan.
There are some excellent passages and lessons in there that really helped me start my day. See, that quiet time helped me be real with myself, think, meditate and figure out how I was going to make the most of the day. Not just for myself, but for my family as well. See, when I am running around hectic without much time to think – I am not as effective. Sounds weird and one would think if you are running around one is being productive. Just the opposite.
In fact you may be counterproductive because you are trying really hard to do everything that you miss the finer points. Also, I was a grouchier person without my quiet time. No bueno.
If you feel your life is hectic and getting away from you – try to niche out some quiet time for yourself. You won’t regret it and you will be better person for it.
The other devotional plan\s I read was:
“Marriage: A Lifelong Journey (15 days)
Can you recommend any others?
