A good day  
        For three days in a row now, I have risen at 5:00 a.m. to meditate for 45 minutes, and to exercise for 22-35 minutes. I’m finished with both therapies by about 6:30 a.m., at which time I head upstairs to fix coffee and have some breakfast. The difference in my perspective is enormous although I’m sure no one really notices much of anything obviously different about me. I feel less tired, less confused, less stressed, less indecisive (a big, common problem for me), and perhaps most especially, less concerned about wasting time. Something I finally realized clearly during my Thanksgiving breakdown is that my issues about wasting time come mainly from not meditating and exercising when I know that I really, really need to do both of these things each day. The solution turns out to be so simple: just get both of them accomplished by 6:30 a.m., and there is nothing more to worry about for the rest of the day except what comes up and needs to done. All the stress of having to do something that I haven’t yet found the the time to do (accompanied by much hand-wringing) disappears: I’ve already done the two things I absolutely need to do, so all the rest falls into place.
