How to refresh the mind?


How to refresh the mind?

I have tried to find the answer to this question. Searching through my life events, I have found one that has refreshed my mind so many times that I have naturally lost the count.

Every morning I wake up, I push the power button of my laptop. While the laptop turns itself on, I go to the kitchen and prepare a cup of tea. I prefer the Darjeeling tea which is fresh and still looks like leaves while I am boiling it in the water. The hot smoke and the hot air help me to get over my sleep. I, then, come back to my room and increase the volume of my laptop which is suitable to my ear but on the louder side. There is one track composed by Johann Sebastian Bach that I always listen to. Keeping it the same every morning, I play the track and look outside of my room. Slowly I come out to my veranda and let the morning sunlight penetrate my skin. I let the gentle breeze fly through I. Bach's music makes the air dance. When the sound reaches my ears, it is already a bit deemed, but it just soothes my mind. I slowly sip tea, feel the breeze, feel the music, and feel the morning sunlight. I feel so good. I just refresh my mind.

This is how I do it. I am sure you will find one such ritual in your life that you are celebrating for years, but haven't noticed it. You just need to find yours and make it as strong a ritual as mine- if possible, even stronger.
