“A Busy Mind is Not Necessarily an Anxious Mind”

Greetings all,

The onset of fall has been pulling me in multiple directions. 

I’m thinking the same might be true for many of you.

And while I would like to report that I am clever enough to take my own advice and not become overwhelmed, it’s not always the case. 

Thankfully, I have a glorious yoga therapist who, when asked how I might better manage my mental pinball machine said,

“A busy mind is not necessarily an anxious mind.” 

Gosh, she’s good.

Because while I often give clients who are anxious about public speaking the same type of advice (“You can call it nerves… you can also call it energy,”) I forgot that I can apply that notion to myself.

So while my September is no less full of taking care of this, that, and the other thing, these days I am more careful about labeling my thought processes.

Because embracing my busy mind has increased my peace of mind. 

I hope embracing yours does the same for you.
