I hope you'll enjoy this re-rebroadcast of one of my all-time favorite blogs and episodes of The MOJO Show this week. Apparently it's one of your favorites, too, as the 2nd most downloaded MOJO Show episode! Whenever I catch myself getting daunted by the seeming enormity of it all (and that can be more frequently than I would hope), I remind myself of the nuggets of wisdom in this episode. I hope there's some insight here for you, too, that helps with whatever looming things you've got going on in your week.
Change can be difficult, and boy have we had a lot of changes around MOJO lately! Catch up with Jean Marie and Scott and all the goings on, plus get the lowdown on the immediate future, contribute your thoughts, and pickup some handy resources to help you handle any of your own changes with a little more grace and a lot less AACK!
Sadly, anxiety abounds these days in the US, and it's safe to say in much of the rest of the world. For many it's acutely heightened by political tensions and uncertainty in the moment. For others of us, it's just a daily struggle. Fortunately for all of us, we do have the refuge of meditation and yoga to help us take care of the one thing over which we do have a chance at exercising some control in this world: our state of mind.
I hope you'll enjoy this rebroadcast of one of my favorite blogs and episodes of The MOJO Show this week. Team MOJO is busily preparing to be part of Hawaii's biggest entrepreneurial and tech startup conference at East Meets West. We're kicking off the conference with a yoga class on the beach and wrapping it up with an on-stage presentation of MOJO Yoga to all the people of startup land. Whenever I catch myself getting daunted by the seeming enormity of it all (and that's quite frequently), I remind myself of the nuggets of wisdom in this episode. I hope there's some insight here for you, too, that helps with whatever looming things you've got going on in your week.
Ever feel like you’re lost in the minutiae of day-to-day living? Are you overrun with to-do’s but have no idea where all those do’s are taking you? Me too. That’s why I started a visioning practice: to clarify my vision for my life and my big Why, infusing my to-do’s with inspiration and purpose. I want to share this practice with you this week, along with a Visioning Meditation below, to perhaps help spark some motivation for you in these dog days of summer.
It can really be damn hard to stay focused, especially when we have a big vision with lots of accompanying goals and things to do every single day. No matter what our direction in life, we can easily become so overwhelmed with things that we have to do and want to do, that we might even forget momentarily what it’s like to be in a state of focus. This sort of multitasking existence leads us to touching upon many things, yes, but never truly giving any one thing our full attention.
This week we’re taking a look at simple ways to put things in proper perspective, as it’s just so darn easy to get caught up in the toils of life, make mountains of molehills, or even start to think of ourselves as grand masters of the universe. Living can be exhausting like that, right? That’s why you and I do this work with yoga, meditation, and personal development. It always draws us back to a place of equanimity, balance, and the inner peace that comes from freeing ourselves of the grip of emotional and circumstantial extremes. This week’s blog and podcast shed more light on this critical aspect of our practices.
