I'd decided last night before I went to bed pretty much that I would make sure that today would be a great one. I was cool and calm. I relaxed myself and zoned out thinking of nothing much other then the fact that I'd wake up before the sun and stretch. That was my start. Nothing too complex. Just setting the mind at a pleasant point and kind of visualizing a peaceful morning. A key factor in making it become a reality. Often we have the idea that we'd like to do something but do not follow through. Don't beat yourself over the head about it, we all do it.
My formula was basic. I woke up. Loaded my play-list with a Japanese Koto Consort album, turned it up and went into the kitchen to put a pot on with water to boil. I rolled out my yoga mat. Prepared a cup of peppermint ginger tea and proceeded to get my mind together for a calming and invigorating stretch. Listening to the music and imagining being in a very serene and tranquil location help to release any tension that existed in my body. I became one with the moment, and genuinely enjoyed my experience with myself. I wrapped up my stretching session, and took a warm soothing shower that furthered the feelings of comfort I'd been building since I awoke this morning. While in the shower I let my mind wander about and had the grand idea to share my experience with you, hoping that the enjoyable results of my motions today would also benefit you, if you so needed some sort of motivation.
My formula was created to put me in the proper mindset to get work done today efficiently. In order for my productivity to be optimal I personally have to purge myself of all anxiety about getting things done. I need to be comfortable and at ease to get the best out of me. My steps began last night as I lay in bed contemplating making today productive.
I uploaded that record I like so much. Perhaps you'll dig it too.
