Slowing Down

Through yoga, we can cultivate attention to the breath that flows through each of us.   As we listen to our breath, we slow down in our thoughts and may even find that we slow down in life.

Over the past several months as my yoga training wrapped up and after, I’ve found myself walking more slowly, taking more photos and pausing to reflect.  I’ve been more present to these moments of observation and have found my attention in general growing.

How can you slow down today and tomorrow?  Start by asking yourself:  What do I really enjoy in life?  Then take some special moments to observe, reflect and savior what you really enjoy.

Having trouble slowing down?  Begin with breathing.  A few deep breathes can make all the difference.  Coordinate some of your every day movements to breath.  You may discover a new slowness and enjoyment in the usual.
