I seem to have accumulated a few promotional activities in the end of April and beginning of May (I’ve told you about some and I’ll remind you again soon) so I decided this week I would give myself and everybody a break.
If you’ve been reading some of my posts for a while you might remember that after going on a Mindfulness course/retreat for psychiatrists some time ago (I was surprised to realised it’s coming up to three years) I took up Mindfulness. I use an App called Insight that apart from offering a timer and guided meditations also has the option of joining some groups. I’ve found them (especially the Women’s Group) very welcoming and supportive and whenever I have a chance I check the messages. One day somebody had posted a question, the one in the title of my post. And quite a few of the ladies replying to the question mentioned that first thing in the morning they’d do the Five Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation. (OK, and drinking lemon water, hot or not was also a big winner).
Of course, with my rigorous research cap on, I decided to go to You Tube and find out what the Five Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation where. You’ll see if you try, that there are many videos about it. I share one here:
Costa Rica looks awesome too, doesn’t it?
I’ve been doing the Five Rites for almost a year. I’m not sure I’m any younger, but I think it’s a good way to start the day.
And I can’t help but wonder if Julie Andrews knew something that escaped me at the time….
So, friends, how do you start your day? I hope with a bit of time to yourselves and a smile, if nothing else.
(OK, I went to an exhibition in Barcelona, of some of the paintings of the Phillips Collection, and for some reason, this painting makes me smile).
Thanks all for reading, and I hope, whatever you do in the mornings, it starts the day well for you. Smile, like, share, comment, do the rites, sing… whatever!
