30 Days of Gratitude: Day 7

Take a "music bath"

It's less weird than it sounds. Find a comfortable spot, pick out a favorite song or piece of music, turn off the lights, close your eyes, and listen.

This was nice. I fully enjoyed this exercise.

At first, I considered listening to an album, via CD and CD player, in my office (where my only CD player is located) but, then realized that it would be difficult for me to ward off distractions. My office is a place where I'm used to multi-tasking and it's a "tempting" environment for me, where I would easily get distracted.

So, I dug out the iPod Classic. After charging and syncing it (so it had my latest music), I took it out to my front porch.

No phone (or other device) to distract me, I listened to Sharon Van Etten's album, "Remind Me Tomorrow". While it played, I people watched, appreciated being outside and breathing the fresh air, and was grateful for my time to just sit still.
