You are getting all cozed-up after a long day of work and growth, with a cup of tea in one hand and a book in the other. Or maybe you just went straight to bed, fallen flat on your tummy and let sleep take over. Either way, we are about to get our system rebooted. But the data that we input last will be picked up first in the morning. A bit of an irony when you think about an orderly lineup in processing information.
We can give ourselves the opportunity to be bright and excited next day by introducing three simple practices in our evening routine:
- Detach from work through a buffer activity – yoga, meditation, reading, listening to music or a nice bath
- Be thankful for what you’ve achieved, kindness, love and health
- Visualize yourself succeeding, being accomplished, making the difference you want to make into the world and add some descriptions of who you want to become – powerful, in control, creative, committed
Paying attention for ten minutes to our thoughts today and stirring them into the direction we want to go to will have a great impact on the next day and the next day and the next day. Our future is now.
