In the schedule-driven course of modern life we tend to lose touch with ourselves. Whether it’s picking up the kids from soccer practice, or that 9:00 AM meeting at work, we bend and mold our lives around the demands placed upon us.
I’ve heard clients describe being pulled in too many directions; of stress around interpersonal communications both at work and at home; and of losing themselves, resulting in feeling depressed and confused. After a while, we begin losing our effectiveness and self-confidence.
I hope that by reading this, more of us will become aware of our depleted selves and take steps to renew and refresh our spirits. I know you’ve heard this before, but here it is again: take some time out, physically, mentally and spiritually! Make realistic goals and take some time for fulfilling them.
The man who doesn’t relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on ~ Elbert Hubbard
Try to spend part of this time alone. Sit in a hot tub, on the beach, in the woods, at a café. Choose your favorite place. Focus on listening to the sound of your breathing. Exchange the air in your lungs, in your cells, with the freshness of new breath in the outdoors. Empty your mind. Do nothing but breathe. This should be daily practice, as little or as much as you need. Get in touch with the essence of who you really are.
Expand your practice to doing physical activities and train your mind to stay in the moment, instead of ½ hour ahead when you will be obligated to someone. Stay in the moment and preserve your true self.
To this day, I believe, David Lynch, the filmmaker, will stop everything and meditate. He does this twice daily, and attributes his creativity to this practice. His creativity is so unique, that even the outcomes of his films or series are unpredictable.
Long ago in the corporate world, I worked for a progressive computer company where the philosophy was, “Your hair grows on company time, so get it cut on company time.” I definitely felt more special when leaving early to get a haircut in the city, followed by dinner and a concert. I extended the specialness of the day, and always came into work the next day with renewed vigor and fresh ideas. Smart company!
