Slow down your busy mind, so you can recognize how you are feeling instead of sweeping it under the carpet. The first step towards reaching a decision is to pause and sit with your issue. While you may be feeling stuck or stressed, have compassion for your emotions and take the time to learn what they are trying to tell you. Give yourself permission to feel and know that you're exactly where you're supposed to be. Props Suggested: A bolster or chair and a journal.
