|So Attila went and, not only posted a photo, but an hour long track that he mixed himself. I've dutifully downloading it and listening to the whole movement - it's motivating - the smoothly mixed tracks, bestial bumping beats, rhythmically coaxing me to move - or in my case - fidget, awkwardly.
I learned in Psych 101 that, neurologically, the rhythms that lead to an act that excites or stimulates you are half of the excitement curve to the full effect of the stimulus. So the ritual of grinding beans, adding water and a filter, and percolating coffee is half the entire level of stimulus I'll receive from the actual act of drinking it; even the smell can trigger wakefulness, and attention.
Though I wouldn't call my morning line-up at the 'bucks to be stimulating, maybe you have something that get's you going - before it even happens?
This post is dedicated to Aaron who likes coffee more than anyone I know.
