…And continuing with Tuesday’s post, a few practices you can adopt…
A practice of any kind can keep you tethered to yourself in those times when overwhelm wants to scatter your energy to the wind. Regularly repeated, these practices are best cultivated in times when things are going well so that they are there to sustain you when you get overwhelmed. Some examples:
• Say a small prayer, read a meditation book or recite a poem each morning to greet the day.
• Walk the dog while whispering all the things for which you forgive yourself.
• Write in a journal as fast as you can for 15 minutes first thing in the morning without editing or judging. Pour it all out on paper.
• Do the “Salute to the Sun” yoga postures every morning after arising.
