“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are October’s” (L.M. Montgomery)
And isn’t that just about right? Just look around you at the colours of the trees and the sunshine and the beautiful skies. There is something about the essence of Autumn that lifts your heart and sings to your soul. Looking around and breathing in the sights and sounds actually has a positive impact on our brains and wellbeing. Being able to be in the moment and totally absorb ourselves in our senses takes our brains away from thinking about the one hundred and one things we must/could/should do - we cannot think and connect to our senses at the same time. Our brains can’t do it. Giving ourselves up to just being relaxes our entire body - from our feet to the top of our heads.
Talking of heads, I would guess that if you are reading this you have access to some sort of technological device. The device that enables us to download or access information, speak and/or see friends, lovers, partners, relatives or even strangers in a heartbeat. All very well and all very good. The problem is your head is down and your spine is tensing and you have cut yourself off from you. I am wondering how many of you reading this actually have the TV on, your iPad close by and are scrolling through messages and perhaps Facebook on your phone all at the same time - well not really at the same time, just quickly one after the other? Madness? Or just the desire to be ‘in the loop’, ‘know what’s going on’, ‘keeping in touch”? Sound familiar? And a little tense maybe?
We are living in the 21st century and this is our life. Like it or not it’s really difficult not to be techno in one way or another - it is what it is.
Yes it is what it is and sometimes we need to just forget about the chaos of life and recalibrate ourselves. To get back in touch with our bodies, to just be, to relieve the tension in our neck and/or spine, to absorb ourselves in feeling totally relaxed, to give ourselves up to some time for us.
