By Joshua David O’Brien, O.M.
As often as you can, infuse your day with moments of inner stillness. They awaken the heart, quiet the mind, and help to bring the mind, body, and emotions into harmony. Keep the moments brief if you have to, but observe them often and with a sense of sacredness. For example, take a moment to close your eyes, become aware of your body, and then take a few deep conscious breaths with full presence. = Breathe = When you are done, gently and slowly open your eyes and express gratitude for this moment. Do you feel any different? Even a subtle inner shift can profoundly influence how the day unfolds around you. Practice this kind of exercise once an hour if you can, and see if you notice anything different about yourself or your day.
