We need to be able to connect to ourselves and quieten our minds, to find moments of stillness and silence. It is the pause, the slowing down, that enables us to maintain momentum through allowing ourselves to just be, and to know how we are feeling. We can relax our preoccupation with productivity and achievement which may create internal pressure, stress and overwhelm. Sometimes it’s not what we need to do, or the action that we need to take that moves us forwards.
If we can find our centre and feel grounded we can find a sense of rootedness, belonging and safety within ourselves. By reconnecting to an internal sense of space we can resource ourselves. Our state, or embodied emotional well-being, informs how we meet the world and any internal or external challenges. Rather than avoid or distract by being busy, we can cultivate presence and awareness of the felt sense of things rather than our thinking about things.
