How to organise emotional discipline

Working to support people can be hard work at times. I got midway through today and suddenly felt very fatigued both mentally and physically. Getting home from work I found it hard to focus on anything and I considered going straight to bed after dinner. 

Here is what I did.

I spent 15 minutes listening to some meditative music through my headphones visualising yesterdays Mind Alchemy exercise and allowed my body to slow down.

10 minutes lie down on the bed to get a power nap before dinner.

I thought about and evaluated my emotional state. I do have a bit of a cold at the moment. I didn't sleep as well as usual last night because of that. I'd also worked hard last night at the studio with the band laying down 5 track for the bands new album. The working day took its toll by encouraging a positive attitude in my clients. This can take a lot of emotional energy from those of us that do this sort of work, so I needed to acknowledge that and give myself time to recharge. 

Once I was able to concentrate, I then read some positive material online. Seeing positive feedback on my blog lifted me this evening. It is encouraging and motivating.

Once I'd done that, I felt very much better. My mind felt creative again and I was able to think of something to write about today whilst walking down the road during the evening. 

I believe there needs to be a disciplined process to the day to ensure there is time to recharge physically and emotionally. Just having a rest in not enough. The MIND needs rest and recuperation too.

All too often, the day can feel stressful. Yes, we do need to acknowledge that, but it is helpful to seek something positive to end then day with. 

Upbeat and uplifting music.

Positive poetry. 

A comedy TV show of your choice. 

All these help to balance the day. 

I've created a taster youtube video of the work we did yesterday at the recording studio. I hope you understand why I love the band so much with it upbeat music and positive lyrics.
