Thanksgiving Throwback: 10 Minutes

On the Mat stopwatch

A throwback to our post on Thanksgiving of last year – my, how quickly a year flies by! – with the hope that its simple suggestion offers the chance for a momentary rest from the holiday craze that has already erupted our streets, stores, and gatherings of family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

This week’s tip is a little different.

You may expect me to share a posture for detox after big Thanksgiving meals or even offer a mantra for gratitude.

Instead, this week I encourage you to take 10 minutes somewhere in your busy schedule, whether you are spending time with family and friends or not, and just sit alone. Grab a cup of tea or hot cider and find a cozy, relaxing space and sit by yourself, with yourself.

No need to meditate. No need to have a purpose or a discovery or even a result. No expectations!

You might be surprised what just 10 minutes spent alone brings to you.

    It’s amazing how hard that ten minutes can be…with no plan, no goal, no purpose other than to be with yourself.

    I find myself feeling the same, Callie!
    Somehow I go on everyday, without ever spending time WITH myself…
