I find it hard to fit a retreat in. I'm working on it, but in the mean time I've come up with a plan for daily micro-retreats.

For the Year of Mercy we put a San Damiano crucifix by our door.  It is at the bottom of the stairs.  At the beginning of the day the first time I come down the stairs I pause and pray a "We adore you O Christ," a "Holy, holy," a Hail Mary, an Angel of God, and a Glory be.

Throughout the rest of the day, any time I come down the stairs I pause at the crucifix put my hand on it and pray a "We Adore you O Christ."  I pause a few seconds while I calm down and remember God.

I call it a micro-retreat.
