Here, Now

During my yoga practice this morning I reminded myself that I am in control. I am the only one who controls how I react to the uncertainty facing each of us.

Yes, my day to day life has changed but I am in control of how I handle these changes and differences. I have choices, we all do. It’s a simple has deciding to handle what’s in front of me. Focus on the here and now -because that’s all I have. Worrying about how things are going to turn out is a waste of my energy. Energy I can use productively in this moment. I am finding this leads to me staying present and calm.

Keeping my perspective in the here and now is helpful too. I’ve slowed down; taking the time to understand the news that I am reading and watching. Understanding why and how to do my part to ensure my family, friends and community is healthy and safe. It’s a time to take a deep, calming breath and look at this as an opportunity.

I am taking back my power by:

  • Slowing down and being mindful
  • Being kind
  • Consuming news no more than twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening
  • Continuing to plan, shop and prepare plant-based meals on a weekly basis – just like before!
  • Taking more time to be creative
  • Reading more books
  • Playing games
  • Making a list of projects around the house that I have been putting off and work through that list
