As a kid did you ever play 3-2-1 blastoff or observe another child doing it? My son frequently played 3-2-1 blastoff, which I have adopted in the morning when the alarm goes off. I count 3-2-1 and make my feet hit the ground. Once I am up I have the energy to take on the day. Motion is a precursor to eliciting powerful emotions, which drive much of our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and actions. Similar to norepinephrine being the precursor to epinephrine (adrenaline) for the fight-or-flight response, putting ourselves in motion starts the day by moving us closer toward achieving what we desire.
