Today’s zen is a mixtape. It features precisely zero kickdrums — this is a rarity, for the kind of tunes that typically populate my music stream.
Normally I like good 4/4 disco/house/funk to keep me grooving while I move on production tasks in the office, but this particular special blend was just the ticket to mellow out in the face of a massive to-do list.
The synth work picks up a bit in the latter half and at times might be dissonant or jarring, but on the whole this would make for a fine meditation session backing track.
Which I will probably sit and do over the weekend. Work, workout, work/life balance…#adulthood. It remains as important as ever for us to take a daily reprieve — be it a meditation, a fellowship meeting, a mindful break from “responsibilities.”
We can only be at our best when we are not constantly facing our worst.
