“We must learn to keep ourselves awake by an infinite expectation of the dawn.” — Henry David Thoreau
When doing yoga, there is a magical moment between postures where you breathe and center yourself for the next Asana. In this brief space, time expands and there is a replenishing, calming, and energizing for the next posture that’s to come. It’s in this gap between actions, that you get to choose how you approach the next activity. Whether energized or exhausted, it’s up to you.
In the day-to-day busyness, if you pay attention, you’ll notice there is a moment where one activity ends before the next one begins. No matter how busy your life is, there is still a space between each action. Bring your attention and breathe into this space. Choose to calm your mind before it races off to your next obligation. You’ll find time expands, your body relaxes, and your approach to whatever is at hand won’t be clouded with the carryover from what was.
Reflection: Practice breathing and centering between activities.
Affirmation: I remember there is a moment to breathe between my activities.
