Lately, I'm also trying some preemptive visualization/meditation: I spend a couple minutes before the meeting, seeing myself in my mind making thoughtful, intelligent contributions...Envision a night of peaceful cooperation and fun with my kid before I pick him up from daycare...see in my head my Husband and myself making good financial decisions (we just cancelled our cable- FINALLY)...visualize myself busting out a 40 minute 5 miler...This kind of visualization does seem to increase the likelihood of success. If nothing else, it provides a few moments of calm purpose to my otherwise chaotic day.
Now, if I could just visualize myself blogging more, that might actually happen too.
