One thing I used to hate was getting sick, and this time of year, when seasons are changing and the weather can be unpredictable, illness can run a bit wild. Since I have practised bringing my focus more and more into the present, I’ve noticed a couple of interesting things when it comes to getting sick:
1) Being in the here and now, rather than worrying about how long it will last makes being sick less stressful, almost fun and
2) Bringing awareness into the body right now seems to clear the illness more quickly.
Of course, I haven’t lab tested any of this, but I invite you to test it yourself. The podcast below is from a class I ran last week in Bendigo, in which we used body awareness to boost our energy levels.
So let me ask you when you’ve finished: Do you feel more energetic?
