    7 Ways to Stop Overthinking

    We’ve all been there. The same thought spinning around in your head, the worst case scenario playing on repeat in your mind as as you stare at your phone or email inbox, unable to stop thinking about a situation or a person over and over. Maybe you are obsessing about an outcome that you want but don’t seem to be able to achieve. So what you do? You start to worry, get upset, angry, or sad, and then make a decision entirely based on a temporary emotion (like sending a rude text or email or making an angry phone call). Sound familiar?

At the end of this madness, we end up having no time to live! We need to make a global paradigm shift and master the art of doing nothing. After all, we are responsible not only for us, but for future generations as well.

    As I walked home from teaching a yoga class this morning, it was raining. Not a downpour kind of a rain but a nice light shower. The sun was slightly peeking behind the clouds. The temperature—not to hot, not too cold—was just right. There was no wind. And you know what...it felt lovely. It was deliciously divine. It felt like a cleansing shower from mother nature.

    5 Life-Healing Lessons We Can Learn from Animals

    Author Lana Fox

    We are often taught in life to avoid being like animals. For instance, the saying, “You’re behaving like an animal,” is used as a put-down more than anything else. But those of us who love animals know that they are, in many ways, far wiser than we are. Indeed through yoga poses such as the ‘cat’ and ‘dog’ we can learn to truly exist in the moment, both physically and mentally.
