Remember to pause.

It’s so easy to get caught up – in the busyness of life, in the emotion of the moment, in the looping thoughts of the mind… Sometimes it can be helpful just to pause, even for the briefest of moments, and check in.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Center. Reset.

Some questions I like to ask myself in the pause:
What am I feeling right now? Physically? Emotionally?
Is there unnecessary tension in my body that I can let go of?
Am I making this harder than it needs to be, and how can I let it be easy?
What is my real priority? If I’m avoiding it, why?
What can I learn about myself from the way I am reacting to this situation/moment?
Can I allow myself to be more present, more grateful, more of service?

Don’t underestimate the power of the pause. It can work wonders.
