Quieting Your Mind
Loving yourself, being compassionate, and creating are the most important
reasons for being here on Earth. Never create when you are troubled.
you have a busy mind, get physical. The more physically active you are,
the quieter and calmer your mind becomes. "I dance with my Chinese sword
when things are going a million miles a minute and my mind is too busy."-Ken
A third technique is to BREATHE! Find your breath whenever you are anxious, fearful or feel you are not thinking clearly. If you do not know where your breath is: you do not know where you are. Put 'sticky' notes all around yourself (bathroom mirror/ refrigerator door/ car dashboard) that merely say 'breathe'. Just the act of drawing in a slow breath will re-focus you and assist in quieting your mind. Three breaths can take you into a present moment space. "Allow your breath to take you - rather than you taking a breath without focus or awareness in that moment." -Nancy
