Life is too short, we should all move more slowly.
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Being calm in life's fullness is certainly a challenge. But taking a moment out of your busy day to breathe with awareness and reconnect to your body, and simply feeling into whatever is there without any judgement, is easier than you think.
Close your eyes for a minute now, and notice how your body feels. Notice if there is a call to 'not waste any time' or the need to 'push on'. Simply observe this, as it is..and you'll find tension you didn't know you had in your body will soften. Spend a further moment to feel into any stronger body sensations that are there. The breath. The spine. What is there to feel? Nothing to change. Simply be.
Now times this by 10 and after 10 minutes of inner mindfulness practice, you'll most probably find that there's a lot more clarity, positivity and lightness in your day. Give it a go! I'd love to hear how this experience was for you.
