Today is Monday. As usual I woke up in the morning and took my bath then I
did my meditation and I came down in the kitchen. Then I make healthy organic
breakfast And I made myself cardamom and cinnamon cup of Irish tea. Then I went
outside to sit near my pool. I spend some time there and after drinking my cup
of tea I came inside. I did my yoga and decided to write another article about
