Phew! I think by Day 10 it certainly is time for a bit of relaxation. The course has been fascinating if a bit intensive.
But today suits me as I am already a big fan of Silence and stilling the mind. I also agree with Steven that this type of exercise, through time and with practice, will help you to feel a lot calmer and in control. I don’t always categorise this type of self-help as a daily exercise. I use Silence and stilling the mind when things to get busy and my brain feels over-whelmed.
I am known for my enthusiasm and have been nick-named ‘roadrunner’ or the ‘Tazmanian Devil’ (if you know your cartoons. I don’t do relaxation very well. But since my mini-stroke in my early 40’s a few years ago, all of that has changed. I’ve taught myself silence, stillness and more especially how to observe negative thoughts and just let them go. I’m by no means a master yet, but through time and with more practice…..
So, how do you relax?
