Free Printable : Weekly Planner

Free Printable : Weekly Planner

Today, I want to share with you something I have been working on. It's called The Mindful Morning Weekly Planner. It's a free download that I have designed and created to help you bring greater clarity, intuition, and mindfulness to your mornings.

This weekly planner was something I have been creating in my head for quite a while. Over the last few months, I have been focusing on decluttering and simplifying various aspects of my life. With this, I have also applied this focus to make my morning rituals a little simpler too.

Going back to basics, my mindful morning means creating more space for things to flow, letting things show up as they need to and allowing greater freedom.

This act of creating a more minimalist lifestyle has helped me release my expectations around holding onto a rigid routine where I end up packing in too many things into my mornings. It has been a really beautiful process to explore simplifying and decluttering my morning rituals. It has spurred me to redefine what mindfulness in my mornings really means to me.

I am thankful that I am just beginning to understand how yoga has affected me emotionally, spiritually and mentally. And I am thankful that yoga has gradually taught me so many lessons in mindfulness - even if I was not aware of them at the time.

So today, I will be sharing with you some of the mindful lessons that I have learnt from my yoga practice that has helped me both on my mat and in my life.
