Imagine a gross case of a person who comes to greet you on a morning he didn’t brush his teeth? Haven't some of us had experiences of waking up with the first thought of a long to-do list? Early morning, when the day breaks and the world at large is asleep, you normally won't have door bells ringing or phones buzzing until you are doing some critically important task at that time. When I meditate I’m calmer, more grounded, and as a result, more present in the moment. I’m motivated to stay with it because I like how I feel and how I deal with things when I do.

By clearing your mind of stressful thoughts and endless lists and by focusing on the day ahead, you can set the day in motion with positive momentum and concise goals. By consciously choosing to make morning meditation a recurring event, you are creating a positive habit that has multiple physical and emotional benefits.

On a similar note, we might also end up sharing what we dumped in the mind last day – a fight with mom, a dish that didn't turn out well, or your senior disapproving a project you worked on day and night. Even 20 minutes of spare time is enough to meditate peacefully and deeply in your veranda with a cool breeze gently stroking you.
And intuitiveness is to be in harmony with nature, with an instinct that tells what's good for you and what's not.
Wouldn't you want enough energy during the day to do mundane routine work with vigor and without getting bored?
To be able to nurture this ability you need to be in harmony with nature and with yourself.
