This might mean different things to different people. Usually, it's my morning spent an hour earlier to get a head start on my work for the day. Or sometimes it's the hour I preserve for the sake of my health by not looking at a screen and instead doing grocery shopping, working out, etc. Other might spend it meditating, reading, writing their 200WaD, spending time with family and friends, or taking a walk.
Today, this happened to be the one hour I spent out of my cave in beautiful 74-degree Fahrenheit weather and showing my face to friends for once.
There's something almost spiritually important about preserving a sacred, reverent hour for yourself amidst the humdrum of daily activities. It may be due to the health benefits--physical, mental, and spiritual. I imagine that it's even more meaningful if it's a repetitive activity, like a ritual (200WaD, anyone?).
I think I've harped on this topic before here, but the fact that I constantly think about this might be a self-reminder to myself. The visual metaphor I imagine is hanging on to a rock while being swept by a turbulent river. Or a more positive image might be a floatie in a lazy river.
