There are times we feel overwhelmed with our to-do lists, our responsibilities or our stuff. This can lead to stress, ill health and it can grow the habit of ending our day feeling completely depleted and exhausted.
I've got a real quick, minute-and-a-half meditation you can use so you get focused and stop feeling so scattered.
What happens is we can get in a state of being hyper- alert. This happens so easily today with so much media coming our direction. It doesn't help that we also have beeping, vibrating and alerts that come from our technical devices so we always feel on tap.
We have so much information at our finger tips that our neurons in our brain have been firing on hyper-alert, probably for a long time. We train our neurons (nerve cells) to do this everyday.
Your brain and nervous system may be firing in all directions all the time making you feel hyper-alert and not able to sleep, concentrate, find joy, feel resourceful and simple, have fun or be at peace like you'd like.
...so you reach your goals and feel satisfied at the end of the day
(+ A Meditation Recommendation)
It's easy to fall in a rut where your days get mundane and goals feel unaccomplished and further out of reach.
I am working on planning better because I want to develop the habit of going to bed at 9:30pm, fully satisfied and ready to sleep 8 hours. Why? Because it helps me be my best the next day.
I know that you have some tools that makes you feel your best in your day too. It's just, for whatever reason, these good tools never became habit...obviously because you'd be using them right now wouldn't you?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
