I love the use of simple rituals to prep for work and creative projects. Some add clear, physical benefits, while others simply provide a psychological anchor. Whether it's exercise, meditation, or drinking a special drink, it's helpful to establish a simple ritual that is both pleasurable and effective. These are also little pleasures that help make your immediate experience and overall life a work of art. Here's a very simple ritual you can try that takes seconds and very little preparation: simply inhale the scent of rosemary.
