One of the areas I hadn't had on my radar before that time was developing a meditation practice. Recognized for health and spiritual benefits, there are many forms and types of practices available. Neuroscience shows that meditation leads to positive changes in brain chemistry and function, and that this contributes to positive moods and behaviors. As my understanding of the benefits grew, and I recognized the incredibly powerful untamed mind that I was living with, I took a more committed path to working with meditation, particularly mind training. I do this by going on a retreat.
Retreat is a time for extensive and intensive study and meditation. Retreat means to extract oneself from the distractions of daily life and focus only on the mind training and taming. Retreat is not a vacation or a time to flop and space out. Retreat involves a strict schedule of practice and study, time to engage without phones, computers, social engagements, and worry about making/spending money. Retreat offers time to focus on what really matters.
I write about this in the hopes that you are consciously looking at where you want to grow, and are setting aside time, energy and the means, to make it happen. And you might consider trying mediation, it is recognized as a key component/skill in developing resilience, and was invaluable to me in times of uninvited change.
“See" you in September. Cheers.
