You probably have several rituals in your life. You go to bed at the same time every night. You drive the same way to work each morning, take the same route home every evening, and unconsciously reach for the remote as you fall onto your sofa at the end of your workday. Perhaps your morning ritual is 1) turn off the alarm clock, 2) put on the coffee, 3) hit the shower, 4) start your day.
Regarding the word ritual, the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as …
“noun – always done in a particular situation and in the
same way each time ”
