Morning Practice Tips


Morning is one of if not the most important times of the day. What we do in the morning sets the tone for the entire day. Due to modern lifestyle and/or habit, many times we rush into our day unconsciously. Taking some time to start the day in a peaceful way has many benefits such as a calmer state of mind, less stress, and more vitality throughout the day, leading to improved quality of life and less dis-ease.

Upon waking it is helpful to first attend to your bathroom needs. Such as:

evacuating the bowels
brushing our teeth
optionally cleaning the tongue
rinsing face with water and/or taking a shower
drinking 1 glass of water, warm water if possible

On the extra tracks page, there is a 'Preperation' bonus track to turn on immediately upon waking to listen to while doing these routines. There are 5,10, and 15 minute versions depending on how much time you need.

Once our personal needs are taken care of, it is helpful to spend some time with ourselves. For those that are fortunate enough to have time in the morning, it is recommended to sit quietly or do yoga, tai chi, walking, or any other form of movement. Click here for some playlists to support a morning practice.

For those that have responsibilities first thing in the morning, it is helpful to take even 5 minutes to sit quietly. If this is not possible, then my wish is that this album could be listened to while getting ready, preparing food for others, driving, or any other morning activity that could benefit from being infused with more peacefulness and energy.

It is my wish that this album encourages and contributes to a peaceful and energetic morning time for you.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
