How to turn good mornings in to gold mornings
Ho ho ho! But Christmas is over. The Countdown to the Year 2016 is over too. You celebrated with friends and family, exchanged gifts and pledged to be happy, start mornings on good note and have everyday beautiful.
Good is what we always want but you can turn good into gold with a little help of your own. You want a golden morning? The process starts from the previous night.
Brush your teeth twice a day, to keep your laughter healthy and brave.
Brush before you go to bed. I do. This make me feel fresh and when I get up the next morning. I am sure that you will feel better than when you hadn't brush before you went to sleep. Additionally, I chant Gayatri Mantra before I go to sleep. It's that habit which I was accustomed to in my childhood by my mum. It does gimme peace of mind and a sound sleep ahead. The mantra goes like this:
ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः (Om Bhuur-Bhuvah Svah)
तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं । (Tat-Savitur-Varennyam |)
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि (Bhargo Devasya Dhiimahi)
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥ (Dhiyo Yo Nah Pracodayaat ||)
The next morning I get up rubbing my eyes but before I step on floor I face towards east I chant the morning shloka, the first prayer of the day calling upon almighty and it goes like this:
कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मिः (Karaagre Vasate Lakshmi)
करमध्ये सरस्वति । (Karamadhye Sarasvati |)
करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥ (Karamuule Tu Govindah Prabhaate Karadarshanam ||)
I don't believe in keep worshiping the God whole day but before rising and sleeping I do remember them and thank them respectively by way of these shlokas for my gratefulness for them to give the beautiful gift of life which includes my family, friends and without doubt the love for travel :)
Then I get up, drink water kept on my side table and go straight to wash my face, look at the mirror, smile and promise myself that I will try and keep my self happy the whole day, smile and not hurt anyone be it human or any other being (animal or bird). That smile fills me with positivity and optimism.
Then the turn of brushing my teeth comes, the morning mantra is never complete without 'Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold toothbrush' and that acts as a catalyst to turn my good morning into #Colgate360GoldMornings. I feel fresh, rejuvenated and ready to conquer this brand new day.
This is my recipe of turning good morning to god morning. What's yours?
