This Week's Quick Tip 📝

With the warm summer weather finally coming around, one thing I’ve been doing to set myself up for the day is to get outside shortly after I wake up.

I sit outside on my deck and just...be.

Now, I wouldn’t say I meditate in the “cross-legged, closed eyes, ohmmm” type of way.

But I do simply pay attention to the various sights and sounds around me. I focus on my breathing. I take thetime to enjoy nature and the beautiful world around me.

I’ve found that this small (yet powerful) thing really gets me in the right state of mind to conquer the day ahead of me.

So I encourage you to give it a try. You don’t even have to go outside, but it sure does help.

Take a moment tomorrow morning to just... be. To just pause and enjoy where you are.

You'll thank me (and yourself) later.
