i was just thinking of how much a mood can be changed by different things…
people – certain folks do (or im trained to believe they do) put me in a bad or good mood. uncontrollable really.
music – oh the delicacies of the ears, the sexiest part of the body for sure.
clothing – i am going to wait until i change into my pjs at night b4 i even think about doing yoga…it puts me into such a well..as some1 calls this kind of clothing – “comfort series”. bizness during the day a party in the back @ nite!
drugs – the real mood alterer
lighting – lights off lights on. candles lit. windows closed, windows open.
im listening to a song right now called ‘leaving me’ by aril brikha. wow, amazing on many levels. being left, as in, by a lover or friend or death. or leaving my “self” behind. hmmmm. gorgeous song, no words, ambient, so so nice.
so the pjs are on. lemme hit that 5 minutes yo!
1. setting my own bedtime. i think it will be easier to let go if i take control of the last hour of my night. instead of trying to go to sleep when i have ‘it’ on my mind.
- i am going to say nite when i am ready to end the day. what i do after is my biz. yoga, meditation, reading, quiettime.
2. not having phone wake me up. i always leave it on to see if i was texted. and i always look for texts when i wake. not the best way to start the day on my own accord!
as miss jackson says: control!
gotta start somewhere.
and i desperately need to end/start my day better.
this is one of those things that- no matter what- i always feel good when i am doing it. after, of course, as well. but i think it just sets me up for: believing in myself, smiling, having good posture, not being in pain, going at tasks with the right mindset. it is truly all about me.
if i can give myself 5 minutes in the evening and morning…well that is extremely doable!
