I think I’ve put a finger on it. The exhaustion, the fatigue, the craving to be more inside the shell than out of it. Of course, being an introvert and having too much to do creates tension, but I’ve felt less energetic than usual lately. The culprit came into consciousness after speaking to our next guest on the WELL / AWARE Show (live on Wednesday!), who returned to the same constant when I asked her about her successes. It wasn’t about cutting carbs, getting up at 5:00 a.m. every day to train or a magic potion, although I’m sure those practices don’t hurt. Her key to success and living well is being fully present in the moment.
Living in the present is a deceptively simple but enormous task. For me, it’s one that becomes even bigger with every Facebook notification, bill to pay, obligation to uphold, item on the to-do list.
