Ok, so you may have noticed by now that I love coffee. For me, it is ritual. Warmth. An art of kettle, grind, brew, press, cream and my favorite mug. I stopped worrying about whether or not it is the "healthiest" thing I could be putting in my body. It is, for me, because it is part of my routine of self-nurturing. Enjoyment of life and food is not bad. It is your birthright as a human being. Check in with your routines: Are you gleaning multilevel happiness and fulfillment from your rituals, or are they numbing coping mechanisms masquerading as self-care?
