Create time to think and let your mind wander by taking a short train ride. Commuting by train doesn’t suck the life energy out of you like plane travel. The best thing is, you don’t have to arrive two hours early, in fact, I, you’re better off getting to the station close to your departure time. Also, boarding the train is fast, and once you sit down, you’re in perfect “gazing out the window” position. The swaying of the train as you scan the passing landscape stimulates thought flow and inspires new ideas.
Creating time to run a Google search for an independent bookstore in your town might take up 20 minutes of your day, but it’s time well spent. Quaint and cozy bookstores are ideal if you’re looking for a space to relax and let your mind wander. And if there’s barista behind a bare whipping up coffee specials; Well, that’s better than butter.
When you lay in bed tonight, don’t think about your e-mail or obsess over your incomplete to-list. Instead, occupy your mind with something relaxing, a visual image of you sitting in front of a fire or a dog sleeping in a sunny spot of a room. Let your pillow talk be a list of the things you’re grateful to have in your life. Hey, how about, “a bed to sleep in” for the first item on your list of gratitudes!
