“Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff and it’s all small stuff… “
the wise title of the wise book full of wisdom by Richard Carlson Ph.D. Yes, it’s been out for a while but, it still rings true. Read it again and again to get a new insight or message each time. Don’t sweat it and remember the key to good communication is listening.
Mountain Pose – (grounding and centering) Stand with feet solidly on the floor feeling the connection on the four corners of your feet, balancing your weight at the center of the base your feet form. Drift your weight upward stacking your knees above your ankles, hips aligned above the knees with the shoulders in line with hips. Gaze forward with sitting bones tucked slightly under, rotate the inner thighs back releasing the lower back. Roll shoulder blades back and down. From the center of your being and up through the top of your head radiate up as if a string were pulling you toward the Universe while staying grounded through your feet.
