We have made planning into an art. We have schedules, lists, even detailed reports of where we aim to go. What does all this planning do to the present moment? We may feel rushed or even panicked before the tasks even present themselves. In nature, birds don't panic because they have five nests to build in a week. Deer don't live in fear knowing they have to cross a road tomorrow. Flowers don't tremble if the rain is not forecasted to come.
If you have a busy day ahead, stop to breathe into your body. What do you need in this moment to help you with the days ahead? Perhaps a walk in nature to connect with a world free of planning or maybe dancing childlike to a favourite song. What does your body tell you to do when it is stressed?
Be the moment. Live for now.
