A simple way of bringing the benefits of ancient Vedic knowledge, such as meditation, yoga, and alignment with nature to anyone's life, is by incorporating it into a morning ritual. – Vish Chatterji
LOS ANGELES, CA, October 07, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- We all know that how your morning starts is a key indicator as to how your day will go. But we often don't know how exactly to craft that optimal routine to maximize our productivity. Vish Chatterji, author of "The Business Casual Yogi: Take Charge of Your Body, Mind, and Career," advises business leaders on this very subject in his East-Meets-West executive coaching practice.
As part of his guidance, he prescribes ancient rituals to address modern challenges. "A simple way of bringing the benefits of ancient Vedic knowledge, such as meditation, yoga, and alignment with nature to anyone's life — including the lives of busy professionals — is by incorporating it into a morning ritual," says Vish. "This allows you to begin your day grounded, balanced, and prepared to manage your day powerfully."
His five-step plan is one that anybody can activate to better manage their day-to-day.
Step 1: Sleep — "A healthy morning ritual actually begins the night before," says Vish. A solid morning ritual is only as good as your morning energy level, which is predetermined by how well you sleep. That means the night before no screens, email, phones, news, alcohol or stimulating activities within an hour of bedtime. Let your brain secrete its natural sleep-inducing hormones uninterrupted.
Step 2: Move — In the morning, get up and get moving! Stretch your body, go for a walk... anything to get the energy moving through the body. No emails, phones, or news just yet.
Step 3: Get Quiet — Bathe, then sit for some quiet contemplation time. Prayer, meditation, journaling — soak in the morning stillness.
Step 4: Eat — Eat a solid breakfast. Food in your stomach grounds you; an empty stomach makes you more susceptible to the ungrounding stresses of the day. Coffee on an empty stomach causes ulcers from a Western Medicine viewpoint and causes Vata/Air imbalance from a Vedic viewpoint, which causes ungroundedness and a lack of focus.
Step 5: Plan — Spend 5-10 minutes planning what you want to accomplish in the day, reviewing your appointments, and getting your head in the right space.
After accomplishing all five steps, you're properly prepared to manage whatever may come your way!
