Could I get a vote here on the term “ear worm”?

Other suggestions?

I call it the “Soundtrack of my Life” or sometimes my “Personal Soundtrack” … brain tunes, internal playlist … but most frequently I say that I have a song or tune stuck in my head …

I call it a lot of things, but I HATE the term “ear worm” … I don’t actually hear it in my ears, or relate it’s location to my ears, it feels like it’s playing within my head, and I don’t hear it as if it’s entering from outside, but I always have a song playing … always … all the time. Maybe not when I’m asleep, but if I stop to notice at any point during the day, sho’ nuff – I have a tune playing over, and over, and over, and over, and over … sometimes for a few hours, a day, a week, weeks …

No external sounds are interfered with, as I mentioned it seems to be playing within my head, and “ear worm” is just … EW … remember Khan and that scene with Chekov??? I will never NOT make that association :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Today’s track is … Purple Rain … you’re welcome 😉

The peak season for these beauties has passed, but I’ll be looking forward to hitting the Tomato Fest in Nashville, TN again next year!

Happy Monday!!!

Good morning, +Friends 🙂

Ready for a great day?  What are your plans?

Wanna try a quick guided meditation?  You can do it anytime today, and I’d love to hear if you tried it and if it helped you relax and/or focus better afterward.  I personally spent about 10 minutes experiencing the journey that I describe below as I wrote it out, and spending 5 – 10 minutes would be my recommendation.  When you reach the part where you close your eyes, spend a few minutes in the relaxed state that you have achieved, and then open your eyes to continue at the word, “Finally”.

The first step is to make this image fullscreen, and let your eyes and imagination wander through this beautiful scene.  Imagine walking along the path … pick whatever direction you like, but be sure to hop across the rocks 🙂  Now imagine yourself continuing to walk along the path out of view.  What do you see?  Paint the picture as vividly as you can in your mind … include animals, birds, bright sunlight as you move into a clearing …  Now imagine what you can hear … the water gurgling over the rocks in the stream, bird song coming from the trees, the chattering of squirrels, the sound of the wind as it blows softly through the trees …  Next, imagine what you feel.  How does the breeze feel on your skin?  Are you wearing a flowing shirt that allows the breeze to lift the hem and flutter against you?  Is the sunlight warm after emerging from the coolness beneath the trees?  Did the water get into your shoes as you crossed the stream?  If so, remove them and your squishy socks if you had those on as well, and walk barefoot along the dirt path … feel the cool soil against the soles of your feet as you stroll casually along the path – relaxed and at peace. Close your eyes and continue along the path for several minutes while continuing to add detail to what you see, hear, and feel along the way.

Finally, open your eyes and imagine that the path leads you slowly back toward your current location.  Continue walking along the path as you transition the path you have been walking in your mind back into your current setting.  Visualize how this path connects to the driveway or parking lot or sidewalk outside.  Slowly take in your surroundings, and then take three slow, deep breaths to prepare you to return to your regular activities while maintaining the sense of calm and peace from your walk by the stream …
