Preparing Your Mind For The Game of Leela

You may be reading this because you're gearing up to play Leela in a few days or might be interested in different practices for preparing yourself for a mentally engaging experience. Whatever path led you to this page, I hope you will find the information useful.

The day before the game offers a unique opportunity to reconnect with yourself, preparing you to fully experience the game and cultivate the right mindset for the game (or for any other significant events).

Here are some tips for spending the day before your game of Leela to enhance receptiveness and embrace an open-minded outlook on the upcoming experience:

1. Reflect. Take some time to reflect on your goals for the game. What do you hope to achieve, and what questions would you like to ask? You may even want to write down some ideas, but it’s not mandatory. If you like journalling, this is a perfect “Dear diary” moment.

2. Physical activity. Yes, you read it right. Exercising has proven benefits for cognitive function and can help clear your mind, facilitating a good night's sleep before the game. This will allow you to approach the game with a fresh perspective. If the gym is not your thing, why not go for a brisk walk in the park or do some Pilates at home?!

3. Mindful relaxation. I bet you saw this one coming. Clearly, incorporating meditation, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques (progressive muscle relaxation, for instance) the day before the game can help calm your mind and improve your focus. You can do it every day, turning it into a part of your everyday routine.

4. Connect with others. Are you excited about the game? Why not talk about it with your friends and relatives? I’m sure they will be happy to hear you are exploring something new in your quest to find yourself and will provide you with emotional support.

5. Leelaby’s blog. There are a few articles where I talk more about the game and share my thoughts on the process and the meaning behind this experience. The next time you commute to work, why not read some of them to ease your nerves about the complexity of the rules? I will happily guide you through the game, so don’t worry if your commute is reserved for reading books or browsing through your favourite websites.

6. Your “security blanket”. Lastly, what makes you feel at peace and mindful? A scented candle, incense sticks, a hot shower, a massage, a video game, a favourite TV show, cooking your favourite recipe, talking with your friend over the phone? Whatever it is, please dedicate the evening before the game to yourself. In a way, you will have already started your game even before it began, so why not embark on this journey in style and great mood?

Now that you have read these tips, you're better prepared for your game of Leela. Embrace this deeply personal experience, enjoy the process, and may your journey with Leela be both enlightening and rewarding.

Best, M
