Get up a little earlier

Not being frazzled when you start your day can set the tone for smooth sailing throughout the day.


Morning meditation

The messages we tell ourselves play a huge role in how we respond to the stressors of everyday life. Being able to set the tone with an om or a nice hum can transform your difficulty morning to a more peaceful morning. Being mindful of the words that you say to yourself throughout the morning and day are key elements in shifting your attitude.
