The other day I posted, "Rav Moshe Leib Sassov says that if a person wants to make sure his day is one filled with Avodas Hashem and avoid aveiros, he should try to make sure his first deed is a good one. Since Mitzva Goreres Mitzva, once you have the first mitzva under your belt, the law of this mishna says that it should continue, as you are already propelled in the right direction. This is Mirumaz in the pasuk (Bo 13:2), "Kadesh Li Kol Bichor", the first action should be designated for Hashem."
Yesterday I went to a Tehilim shiur in which the rabbi reiterated the theme of doing something holy when you get up in the morning. He said that our prayers would be so much more meaningful if davening was the first thing in which we engaged when we woke up, rather than turning on the computer, checking what's doing in the world, our stocks, etc...
So, instead of reaching for the mouse, let's reach for the Tefilin and siddurs, and pray with concentration to Hashem without distractions.. - "Kadesh Li Kol Bichor."
