The bathroom is one of my favorite places to reflect and center myself.
Whether it be first thing in the morning or the last few moments before bed, the moments that I spend in the shower or brushing my teeth force me to slow my body and brain and think about the opportunities and people in my life that I’m the most grateful for.
