Staying sane in a world moving ever more quickly requires daily practices of attention, centering, awareness, and self-care. Yet if those practices get too complicated, we quickly find that they fall away. Cultivating a simple, straightforward daily ritual is the key to keeping up this daily commitment to maintaining your own well-being, groundedness, and contentment.
