Yoga is all about restoring balance to both the mind and body. We get so caught up in our everyday grind of life and even the superficial aspects of “beauty” that we forget the importance of balance and good health. You can never attain a sense of balance in your life if you neglect the primal component of rest. Rest and relaxation give the body a chance to recover and mind a chance to unwind. Both are so important that a who portion of your autonomic nervous system cannot conduct the important business of digestion or arm the body’s defense system without ample amounts of it.
So, why do we choose to ignore something we all crave and enjoy? Simple. We let life take the driver’s seat, with its commanding need to eat away at our valuable time with its never-ending list of priorities.
Truth be told, the list will always be there, but the chance to experience life with those you love won’t.
Needless to say, after learning this the hard way, I am all about spending time traveling with my son, enjoying life, unwinding and regaining a sense of “self” throughout the process.
