From the eCourse, STILL, with Henry Lohmeyer.
Day 8: FEEL
Despite being thoroughly convinced by the science behind mindfulness and meditation, I still struggle to maintain these healthy habits. I have lots of energy. I love to move. My mind stays busy and often wanders. I am easily distracted. Sometimes I forgo my basic needs for sleep and food and push myself too hard and too long. I’d been feeling frustrated with myself because while I want to travel in the slow lane, I keep drifting into the fast lane as though I need to pass someone.
But then I happened upon a powerful book at the library.
Practical Mindfulness for Busy People: The Art of Stopping Time by Pedram Shojai
The book is designed as a hundred-day journey to bring us back to a healthier connection with time. Think of it as a 100-day ritual that helps instill new habits.
I love this book. I’m seeing changes in my life and my photography practice already – and I’m only up to Day 13, which discusses the value of doing one thing at a time.
These words feel like the key to being relaxed and happy.
