I get up at 4:00am every day and not by choice. I don’t do it so I can squeeze in a run or clean my house before the masses emerge… I do it… because I have to. Until I can figure out how to host a Morning Show at noon- this will be my life.
So as you can imagine I exist in a Parallel Universe where 1:00pm feels like 1:00am and dinner plans on a Friday night are about as appealing as frostbite, grey roots or soggy french fries.
Sleep is NOT a necessity in my world it is an obsession…and anyone who stands in my way- will get hurt. That is just one of the reasons Meditation has been such an important part of my life. I can not “wait” to fall asleep -but I am not one of those who snores before impact…I need help to make pillow time productive and restorative.
I need to be able to unwind as easily as possible and ensure that my down-time recharges me fully so I can be “on” when the lights are on me. I love my job but it is not the healthiest lifestyle and so my habits and rituals need to make up for that. I have learned how to release tension, let go of incessant thinking and fall asleep quickly out of necessity …but some days I am tested.
I know how the demands of this life are draining us all but we do have an infinite source of energy and peace available to us… NOW. Make the time and space to practice stillness and watch how your world blooms in new vibrant colour. Meditation is transformative and can take you out of chaos and into peace in an instant.
