Transitions are the perfect moment to pause and observe how you are feeling in the present moment. This week, we mark the transition from summer to fall or winter to spring, depending upon where you’re located on the globe. Why not slow down, check in, and use this natural transition to appreciate your life? Savor your experiences instead of anticipating what’s next.
Have you been to a concert lately? Noticed all the people with their phones up in front of their faces, videotaping a song instead of actually watching the show? They could be fully immersed in what’s happening on stage, but instead choose to create a barrier with a camera screen in order to save the moment for later. So, they never actually fully experience the gift of the live performance. Now consider in how many other areas of your life you are focused on the past or anticipating the future?
It’s easy to be pulled into the “doing” pattern of life.
We tend to pride ourselves on how many items we can check off our to-do lists and in the process, we can lose the focus on what is really important in our lives. If we are speeding to accomplish and “do” everything, often we are not being. We are not present. We’re so focused on what is next, we aren’t appreciating what is happening now.
When did being busy become a badge of honor?
If you’re living like this in your daily life, chances are you could be speeding through your yoga too. Anticipating instead of living it. The way we show up on our mats is often a direct reflection of how we show up in our personal and professional lives. This week, we offer you the opportunity to dial back the hectic, busy, multi-tasking schedule and purposefully slow down. By choosing to focus on a more serene approach, you create space for more calm and peace inside. We’ve got four classes for you to encourage you to slow down in order to replenish your well-being and approach the other twenty-three hours of your day with more equanimity.
Taking your time is powerful.
