Training our bodies AND our minds has always been important, but no more so than now. Looking towards global, long-term goals, can help bring the awareness to the journey. Rome was not built in one day, and change can only occur with perseverance and continued awareness of our chosen path.
Practice calm and self-control in adversity.
Aggression eats away at strength and creativity, replacing them with hostility and closemindedness. Panic also weakens the soul, preoccupying the mind and prohibiting our ability to make intelligent non-reactive choices. When feeling particularly reactive, take a step back, and breathe. Replacing that frantic negativity with calm, controlled perseverance, will help us achieve whatever we set out to do.
