// New morning ritual.//

There’s this area a few blocks away from where I live that everyone refers to as “the lagoon,” but is really just a big pond with a park and some paths to walk around. Every Friday morning, I now wake up an hour earlier than I need to. I get ready, put on some good music, walk to the lagoon and around it a few times, and then head to class. It’s a small change from my normal routine, but it has already made a huge difference. Everything is so peaceful and quiet that early in the morning, and I start off my day completely relaxed. It’s a chance to collect my thoughts from the week and get ready for a good weekend. I suggest giving it a try if you’re a morning person (or someone with the potential to be one haha).
