It looks like some calm has finally headed my way. It took a full schedule to finally find some balance. As you already know, school has already started for me, and one of the classes that I am taking on campus is Yoga. Yes, they offer yoga as a class, isn't that awesome! So I decided to take Yoga and am very excited because our teacher is all about learning yoga to de-stress from life, and to de-clutter your mind. I wanted to raise my hand and say "YESSSSS! FINALLY!". But I resisted so I wouldn't scare off my fellow classmates. Not only did she talk about how that is her main focus, but she also went into how she strongly believes in healthy eating to promote a healthy mind. I was so close to jumping up, then thought of my fellow students again... I am definitely going to look forward to the next Tuesday and Thursdays when I have to go to Yoga at the campus, because with everything going on right now, I really need to figure out how to de-clutter my mind. You know at night, when you keep tossing and turning because you have a million things going through your head? That's me times another million!
I also really liked how she discussed how our minds are never in the present. I sat there thinking "Ok, yeah yeah, I've heard about this before." But then she went into detail explaining this. Our minds are never in the present, our minds are constantly in the past, worrying about what we did, how we could've changed it, how we wished things were different, and constantly thinking about things that have already happened. OR, our minds are in the future, afraid of what might, what will come, worrying about our children's future, that job promotion, or worrying about our finances. Our minds never get to sit and relax in the present. It made total sense and I realized that is exactly how I am thinking all the time. I always worry about what has happened and what will be, but never just where I am.
Where is your mind?
