If you have a bad day, wake up on the ‘wrong side of the bed’, or feel ‘off’ more than once in a while, something is wrong. These experiences are telling you that an area or situation in your life needs your attention. It could be physical, emotional or spiritual. And it could just be an overworked mind.
Don’t get me wrong we all have a bad day from time to time, but chances are you have them more often than not if you are not intentionally preparing your mindset and your energy in the morning, for the day ahead.
Why the morning?
Much like a snowball, once a bad day gets rolling, it’s hard to stop. Once you have the thought in your mind that something ‘bad’ has happened, your energy and thoughts can go downhill fast. However, grounding yourself to your center and your breath, as soon as you wake up, is one of the most helpful ways to ensure that no matter what the day may bring, you’ll be and feel okay. You can use the power of your intention to create the kind of day you want to experience.
Meditation helps create space between your thoughts and actions giving you more response time for challenging situations. Those few seconds of space can be the difference between saying something you regret and saying something helpful. While meditation won’t cure you of ever having a bad day, it can make it less likely that you will create one.
So I am sending today’s Tune Up Tip a bit early so you can start this day and week, feeling centered, alert and at ease.
Give me three minutes and I will help you create some space in your mind. Turn off all distractions, press play and enjoy. This meditation is for you.
I hope you enjoyed. Now I want to challenge you to flag this email and commit to mediating with the video every day for the rest of this week. Do you think you can do it? Comment below and let me know that you are in!
Sending you lots of love and peaceful feelings.
As always, take care of you.
Love Love Love
