Habit or Ritual?
By habit I am a night owl and former junk-food junkie. By ritual I am becoming a morning exerciser and raw vegan (far from 100%, but leaning in the direction of making better choices for my personal health and happiness). As part of my morning ritual, I have been watching the sun come up - while drinking warm water with lemon (and even reading some blogs!). Not to mention that the process has helped me to get over jet lag this time around!
It is easy to be grateful for the coming day when it starts like this.
How do you start your day when you want it to be a little extraordinary?
I am a Ph.D. on a non-traditional path who travels to unexpected places for work and pleasure. I have a passion for learning about new cultures and people, while trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle on the road. For me, eating raw means incorporating more whole, uncooked, foods into my diet and getting away from the processed junk food that I have been eating for years. Thank you for joining me as I Travel Raw. My "final destination" airport is in Washington D.C.
