With the end of another school year, spring moving summer, and the final push to be productive before the kids are home all day, the load can leave us drained of energy. All of it can feel pretty stressful.

It’s during these times of change when we have to take care of ourselves so the transition doesn’t wear us out.

Here are a few ways I like to reduce stress and find my calm.

Yoga is a powerful practice. It has definitely changed my life and caused me to be a more conscious and centered person day to day.

I’d say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself because of how it’s affected my perspective.

Yoga teaches us a lot about ourselves and others, how we move through life, how we react to things, how we process information. It teaches us how we’re all alike.

We have more in common than we realize, and the similarities are made more clear the more devoted to our yoga practice we become. By tuning in to our own nature, through the movement and concentration yoga fosters, we can deeply connect to the Truth we all share. Observing our innermost essence allows us to see the same essence in others, as if looking in a mirror.

So I imagine if these lessons are what I learned on my yoga mat, then chances are you stand to gain the same during your own practice…and then some.

The highest form of human intelligence is to observe yourself without judgment.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

There’s an old story of two Buddhist monks walking along the far stretches of the Taklamakan Desert. They come across a small stream in Kashgar, and spot a woman struggling to make it across with all her belongings. One of the monks decides to pick up the woman with her things and carry her on his back as the two men cross the stream on foot. Monk #1 sets her down at the other end, says nothing, and continues on with monk #2 still by his side. The two monks walk in silence for miles more before monk #2 speaks up and says, “You know we are not permitted to touch the opposite sex; what you did is offensive.” And he looked on expectantly, awaiting an explanation.

“Oh, you’re still carrying that?” replies monk #1. “I dropped her off 3 miles ago.”Continue Reading..

It’s any wonder why someone would choose darkness when light is just a decision away. A decision to incorporate new thoughts of wellness and peace into one’s mindset, thereby overriding thoughts of disease and hate. A decision to view another person as capable of making mistakes and in need of as much mercy as you or I. In other words, decisions to move out from under the shadows and into the sun.

It’s any wonder, too, that someone would choose punishment over forgiveness.Punishment denotes a jurisdiction of authority over a particular offense, or a perceived power over another person. No amount of accolades or credentials gives anyone enough vindication to punish someone else for any action. What might be justice in your eyes might be torture in another pair. We as humans cannot even agree on forms of punishment, debating whether the death penalty or 5 years in jail is suitable for a count of child molestation. So, is it safe to say that punishment is in itself a subjective decree?
