There’s a few things I do that help me get to a very calm, meditative state. Stretching. I do some breathing exercises. I also have this hot/cold cycling thing I do in showers, and it’s an amazing way to bring about the right state of mind. I’ll interchange 20 seconds of hot water with 20 seconds of cold water. By the time you’re like seven cycles through, you can’t feel if the water’s hot or cold and your skin is tingling. Your breath and heart rate is increased and it’s almost like a workout. The comedown from that experience relaxes the mind because it’s like recovering from exercise.
