Day 19 conclusions:
- I am finding that starting one regular practice has had a ripple effect through the rest of my life.
- I am being more proactive and not waiting to get broken, again.
The way we live in our modern world can be so reactive - we wait until something is broken before we work out how to fix it. We wait until we are so stressed that our body tells us to stop through illness, injury or chronic fatigue or we start having panic attacks or experience depression. We allow our body to get so stiff overworked or overweight; and/or we allow our relationships to deteriorate to the extent of social isolation and/or mental health issues.
Yet there are tools we can engage with to reduce the likelihood of things getting broken or at least reduce the degree of broken and can support a faster and more complete recovery when things do break. And I am finding that starting one regular practice has had a ripple effect through the rest of my life.
For example, since starting my 21 day Experiment with Love, I have improved my diet, increased my exercise, established a regular physical asana practice to compliment my mental practice and I am becoming more proactive, generally.
So, note to self – change one aspect and watch the change ripple through your life.
