A Peaceful Pause
Take a moment to look closely at these Spring flowers—the details, the color, the vibrancy. Then notice, at the same time, what you perceive in your body as you are being touched by this beauty. Is there a small movement inside you that helps you expand and relate differently to yourself? As you resume what you were doing, what shift do you notice in your perception?
If all the working, commuting, errand-running, parenting and partnering, cooking, cleaning and living you do leave you feeling depleted and stressed, take heart. Though you may think it’s impossible to de-craze your life, there are many little ways to create moments of calm. One is a peaceful pause. These are the brief but restorative times when you stop thinking about your have-to list and focus instead on the things that lift your spirits and nourish your soul. There is beauty everywhere. Pause, breathe, and take it in!
For a longer pause that restores body, mind, and spirit, take timeout for bodywork at Massage Therapy Center Palo Alto. Nurturing touch is one of the best ways to calm your nervous system, so that you are more able to enjoy the people and beauty around you!
