It is no secret that life is busy, hectic, and crazy. To do
lists, texts, phone calls, emails, jobs to do, places to be,
people to touch base with...the stimulation is endless. In order
to achieve successful mornings, the body and mind must rest and
recover the night before.
Nightly meditation can help promote calmness of the body and
Traditional meditation is not for everyone, but utilizing some
form of mindfulness to prepare your mind for rest and recovery
is going to be extremely effective in allowing you to get the
most out of your nightly routine and your state of rest.
Try to find a quiet, dim, and calming space each evening before
bed and simply sit still and focus on nothing but your breath
for 5 minutes. Turn off your mind, do not recap your day, do not
assess the status of your to do list. Just breath, relax, and
establish a state of calm.
