Yoga Meditation Makes You Stop And Smell The Roses – Huffington Post

I’m a huge advocate of yoga meditation, simply for no other reason that it forces us to slow down and focus on ourselves and what is truly important in our lives. The times we are living in right now are simply more stressful than us little humans were designed for. In my own practice, I see on a daily basis what happens to people when their accumulated stress causes something in them to “break”, and they need to get it taken care of. Elissa Kravetz in writing here for the Huffington Post, shares with us her own perspective about why it’s important to slow down — so that we can all be kinder to each other.

Yoga Meditation Makes You Stop And Smell The Roses – Huffington Post

We all need to stop. Stop and observe. Observe ourselves. How are we treating our family? Our friends? Our teachers, bosses, employees, the person at Starbucks? Are we rude or do we smile? Do we bother to make eye contact?

For those of you reading this, I hope for even just a few moments you pause and think about how you treat others.

Yoga meditation makes us slow down our lives and take notice of the beauty all around us.

Be a little kinder today. Slow down. Breathe. Think about all of the wonderful things and blessings that are in your life.

Especially all of the people around you. Realize that very rarely do the things that we are afraid of happen. Most people act in a state of fear all day, every day. Therefore their actions are fear based, we waste so much time worrying. We need to worry less and love more. Worry less and care more.

Practicing yoga meditation daily gives us that structured break we all need from our daily routines. It carries us through the day and makes us more aware of all the beauty around us in the world. If your world was going by us just a little more slowly, wouldn’t there be a little more room for that extra act of kindness and compassion for another person? Just imagine if all seven billion of our planet’s fellow inhabitants performed just one extra act of kindness for someone else? What a great day that would be, wouldn’t it?

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched… but are felt in the heart.                                                          — Helen Keller
