Have you ever needed a vacation from your vacation? That feeling of utter joy and exhaustion after the trip you spent coordinating your time off from work, spending your savings, and maybe a bucket list check-off? And why does it seem to take twice as long to get somewhere you have never been, but yet you get back home in a flash? It’s all perspective from your bodymind.
What is your bodymind? We all have one, and in fact, it’s the only one you have. It’s the physical container of you. Recently, there is a lot of conversation around mindfulness – by controlling your mind you can control your life. Yes, that is the “pot of gold” at the end of the rainbow, however the bodymind’s priority is to work together as one unit – rather than separately. Imagine having the car of your dreams and you only maintain the engine but not the tires or the body – like us, cars are made to move.
Think about how to savor each moment while you are on the next get-a-way and you might not need another vacation when you get home.
