For someone whose nickname is “Rush,” finding peaceful moments hasn’t always been easy. But over the past 15 years or so I’ve found that meditation is a great way to connect with the peace and tranquility that’s in my heart. That’s why every morning when I wake up, I roll over, light a candle and then try to spend 20 minutes in meditation. Sometimes I might end up going for forty minutes, but twenty minutes is my minimum. There are mornings I feel extra tired or get up late, but I always try to fight through whatever obstacles I perceive are in my way and make the time for meditation.
Once I’ve meditated, I go downstairs and have a green juice (spinach, parsley, kale, cucumber and apple). After that, no matter what I’ve got on my plate for that day, I feel like I’m operating out of a peaceful, calm and contented state, instead of a rushed and needy one.
