What do Valentine's Day, Christmas, dating, dinner and a movie, marriage and couples have in common? Rituals
A ritual is defined as 'any method of doing something in which the details are always faithfully repeated.' To relate this to your life, rituals include: the time you wake up, how your brush your teeth, the route you take to work - you get the idea. Rituals give life meaning and help us celebrate milestones in our lives. They offer security, stability and routine and a sense of calmness to an otherwise chaotic existence.
Rituals date back thousands of years with the ancient Egyptians. Theirs was a culture seeped in traditions. Eating, drinking, bathing, hunting and burying the dead were a succession of rituals.
