I was running late for yoga this morning and arrived just as the class was beginning. I quickly laid down my mat and tried to get into the process. But a myriad of thoughts kept vying for space in my head. The question I wasn't able to push aside so easily was: what activity allows me to clear my mind and truly be in the moment?
I eventually focused on the instructor and my breathing, paid attention to my body and the poses - and before I knew it I was into the rhythm. Next week I'll be sure not to rush and I have no doubt that will get me off to a less cerebral start.
More importantly, how do you take care of yourself? What do you do that's so engrossing everything else pales in comparison and, at the moment, nothing matters. Let us know and we'll post your ideas next week.
