"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." - Anne Lamott
Pausing in the morning, taking time to take a breath, meditate or pray is one of my most useful practices. Stopping in the morning to gather yourself before the crazy starts is vital, even just for a few minutes.
I use the Oak Meditation App, it has a great introduction and is simple and free.
Get skin in the game, pause.
