As we go through our day, our shirt gathers wrinkles. Similarly, each experience leaves wrinkles on our mind – the rush to work in the morning, an SUV cutting us off at an intersection or a colleague showing up 10 min late for a meeting. These experiences wrinkle the clear surface of our mind.
Just as we iron our clothes, certain activities help us free our minds of wrinkles and start fresh. We need activities that get rid of the wrinkles in our mind – a good night’s sleep, meditation, exercise or a refreshing hobby.
It helps to start our days with a crisp, freshly ironed shirt.
