As part of my ‘slower’ pace in 2013 (I’ll talk about this in greater detail later when it’s more consistent), I read a devotion every morning to get my head in the right place for the rest of the day. So far this has been more positive to my mental health than checking my email/weather/news/Facebook/etc.
I love starting my day with a positive reading.
