What (legal) ways do you pump yourself up to do a call down?

Sometimes sellers get into a pattern or cycle and need to mix it up in order to avoid monotony. That being said, I'm looking for other routines or best practices, heck even rituals to get me amped to make calls. Done everything from playing the classic "pick up the phones and start dailing" speech to breaking out the smelling salts. LMK.

I find that if my heart is going a bit faster than normal I'm a better cold caller. Something about the adrenaline? I'm not a doctor. 

So if I'm sitting down, I stand up. If I'm already standing, I'll do a couple jumping jacks. I don't want to be out of breath, but I want o be jazzed up.

I had a boss who said, "Motion creates emotion people!"

I have a playlist of hype songs that I play to get in the groove.

10 Min Guided Meditation. If that doesn't center me then I rub one out.

Stand up and walk as I do cold calls. Take a espresso shot helps too
