I’m not one to rush into the day. I need a translational period of solitude before hopping into the shower. I like to sip my coffee and stare into the darkness first. It might be the only opportunity I have all day to just be quiet.
The Christmas season is a bonus period because there is a beautiful tree to focus on. The lights twinkle. Ornaments illuminate, then fade. It’s mesmerizing. It’s hypnotic, and it provides an excellent opportunity to slip into a meditative state.
Thoughts are absent. My body is still and relaxed. My breath is slow. It’s blissful. Soon enough the spell is broken and my attention comes full circle, but I feel different, – complete.
I encourage you to allow yourself those moments of stillness, to feel grounded and centered. It can make all the difference in your day.
