because it allows for stressors to start rolling through your mind
over and over, and also stress hormones to build up. Think of it like
eating... you want to take preventative measures so you don't get
hungry rather than waiting and needing to eat immediately.
I see it almost exactly the reverse of what you
have described. Starting the day by "programing"
your mind, emotions, and body to be as stress-less
as possible doesn't give your inner chatterer a
chance to allow "...stressers to start rolling
through your mind over and over, and also stress
hormones to build up". And to compare it to
eating I would say that it is like washing and
appropriately preparing the foods so that the
meal can be easily digested and as nourishing
and delicious as possible.
Peace and blessings,
