How often do you stop - as in truly, truly stop and do nothing ? I tried it in Lidl in Southampton above but in all honesty I prefer to do it at home during my yin yoga and mindfulness practice.
So often we keep pushing ourselves to fit more into an overloaded schedule until eventually we have no choice but to stop as we burn out or become ill. Being busy seen as a badge of honour as we do do do.
I love my yin yoga and mindfulness practices as it’s a gentle nudge to take time out and remind me that I’m a human being not a human doing. When we slow our thinking down and stop filling ourselves up with the fear based crap we constantly consume on social media we can step back and see our world with fresh eyes coming up with creative solutions where we’ve been previously stuck.
“In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still”.
