Here’s a great exercise I like to do to start my day and whenever I feel I need to reset and recenter during my day.
There are four phases and it can take anywhere from 10 – 20 minutes. It’s up to you how long you want to go with it. (watch the video for how to go through each phase)
The idea behind it is to prime your mind, body and emotions for the day so you direct it vs. reacting to the urgencies of life.
If you don’t already have a ritual to get you in a great state to start your day I suggest you start and this priming exercise is a great one to experiment with.
Whenever I catch myself saying I don’t have the time to do this, I remember the quote below from Russell Simmons.
“If you don’t have twenty minutes to delve into your self through meditation, then that means you need two hours.”
If you do it for thirty days straight you will become addicted to it because you will automatically feel so much better throughout the day and get way more done.
