Every morning when you wake up and start your day, you experience a transition from rest to activation. You transition from family time to drive time, from drive time to work time. When a meeting ends, that's a transition. Our days comprise a series of transitions. Transitions are potentially immensely valuable - a powerful space of freedom between activities, an opportunity to restore and amplify our energy.


Think about all the transitions you experience during the day. Do you ever carry over any negative energy from one activity to the next? Do you ever feel depleted but still plow into your next activity without a break, even though you know you should take a breather? Are you losing a sense of presence and appreciation for life and others the further you go in your day?


Revitalize Your Life


From now on, as you move from one major activity to another, try this:


  1. Close your eyes for the next minute or two & focus on your breath to decompress.
  2. Repeat the word release in your mind, like a mantra. Meditate on it for a moment.
  3. SET INTENTION - Now, think about what you want to feel and achieve in your next activity. Ask yourself "What energy do I want to bring into this next activity?" "How can I do this next activity with excellence?" "How can I enjoy the process?"


This activity, practiced regularly, will become a life saving discipline that helps you to regulate your own energy, to better manage stress and gain more presence.

Want a guided meditative experience? Try listening to the following:


Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) Richard W. Anton, M.A., B.A., Dip Ed


This is a 30 minute Progressive Muscle Relaxation exercise that you may practice.The goal of relaxation therapy is to calm the brain, to permit thinking processes to stream in an even, smooth pace, and trigger the relaxation response. The purpose of progressive muscle relaxation is to learn how to relax by comparing relaxed and tense states. PMR can help reduce anxiety and anger by targeting the physical part of those emotions.
