Let’ Share – What Are Some of Your Daily Rituals?

                                     Good Day World!

I have daily rituals.

You may relate to this one:

One of the first things I do when I wake up is to put on a pot of coffee.

Without my morning caffeine fix my brain stays stuck in first gear. It takes two cups of Joe to facilitate the transformation from near zombie to a functioning person.

I think, in all fairness, what I have is an addiction and a ritual.

Rituals are a feature of all known human societies.

They include not only the worship rites and sacraments of organized religions and cults, but also rites of passage, atonement and purification rites, oaths of allegiance, dedication ceremonies, coronations and presidential inaugurations, marriages and funerals, school "rush" traditions and graduations, club meetings, sporting events, Halloween parties, veterans parades, Christmas shopping and more.

Another ritual I have:

When watching my favorite pro basketball team, The Los Angeles Lakers, I do this little thing with my hands to jinx the opposition when they’re taking free throws. Just before the shooter releases the ball, I shake my hands violently (in fantasy theory distracting him).

The crazy thing is I try not to overuse this tactic because if it comes to crunch time I want my mojo to be strong!

So what daily rituals do you have? C’mon…we all have them.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
