Music. Music is a massive component of my life, and also the quickest method for me to change my state of mind by covering exterior noise, distracting myself. Songs allows me to re-focus my focus rapidly. Once my focus has been moved away from the ‘stressor’ I should then change to a neutral state, or if I am fortunate a favorable state. From that point on I can begin taking a breath workouts to complete the change to leisure. Currently I’m listening to: ‘Genesis’ by Grimes, and ‘Half the Perfect World’ by Madeleine Peyroux.

It functions wonders!
