Journal: There is magic in the morning hours – but only if we are awake to see them. Before getting to the ‘musts’ of your morning, take some time to fuel your motivation. Give your brain something to be inspired by. Write down in your journal a quote or a scripture, something you’ve ‘chewed on’ for inspiration that morning. At the end of the week, take a few minutes to go back and read your morning inspirations.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

Quote of the Day: The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of nonessentials. ~ Lin Yutang
Essential Element:. Claim ownership of your time and schedule. Make a standing “napping appointment” in your daily schedule if at all possible.  Even Presidents of the United States have made this a priority – and they have a demanding schedule, too.   [click here to read Spark Insight: Rest and Repair]
Journal: What if taking a nap became an essential part of your day. What would you have to get rid of in order to make space for this new crucial practice. For three days in a row this week– give it a try. Carve out specific time for a 20 minute nap. You don’t have to sleep – just shut your eyes. At the end of the day, jot down your observations as to how you felt after it and what, if anything , it gave to your day.    [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
