Many of us believe that as the world moves faster and faster, we also need to move faster and faster just to keep up. Nothing could be further from the truth! Moving with speed creates stress and confusion, as well as amplifying fear. By simply disciplining the rate at which we move, we intensify our focus as well as increasing awareness. The next time you catch yourself racing around, stop immediately and take a breath. Now begin to move in a conscious and rhythmic way, with a relaxed body. When the body is relaxed, so is the mind. It takes practice, but by moving slowly and with consciousness, we can truly empower our lives.
