Trying so hard? Try this instead...

Do you feel the same way?? I feel like I've been trying SSOO hard to stay afloat for a whole year, and absolutely NOTHING is working out... I'm spinning my wheels and getting nowhere. If that sounds familiar, then let's try this instead... If you were in class this week, then you already know... We practiced the PAUSE. Which is HUGE! The PAUSE is this tiny space in between... In between thoughts, in between words, in between breaths... where a whole new world of possibilities wait to be discovered. NEW thoughts and words that are more evolved and lead to more positive outcomes. Practicing the PAUSE can change the outcome of your day, even your life!

In class this week, we Practiced the Pause with a Box Breathing Meditation.

Here's a video of the meditation, if you'd like to try it and practice with me. In our world, we are trained to rush and push and go faster do moooooore... We are quick to label, and judge, and get bonus points if its quippy!

Spoiler alert - that ain't working!!! In this PAUSE though, we stop. We wait. For another solution to come to light. It's not quitting, and it's not the same as being lazy, as we continue to practice and work on development. It's an acute awareness without trying SO hard!! You can apply this practice to so many different areas of your life. Anytime your feelings are BIG or your decisions are BIG or life seems overwhelming, practice the PAUSE. Try it. And SEE what happens!
