When was the last time you slowed down ON PURPOSE?
One of my movement mentors Helen Terry says often in her Nia classes, "speed is the illusion of mastery." Often in today's hectic world it can be easy to move so quickly that we may not even realize what we are doing while we are doing it!
Here's the thing: we are dynamic human beings, learning from everything we do. And the brain, a key part of our mind-body system, needs TIME to process our experiences. This means that sometimes simply SLOWING DOWN can make the difference between a surviving and thriving.
At Daily Calm, we make Attention, Breath & Cheer (encouragement) part of every healing session. In just a few minutes, you can bring these elements into your daily life too. Start by SLOWING DOWN enough to notice your surroundings. Notice the details of what is around you. See if you can take 20 seconds to look at one thing in detail. Notice its shape, color, size, texture.
When you simply SLOW DOWN, you can bring more calm, vitality, and even more energy to your day.
