Peace Of Mind Is Closer Than You Think.

Sometimes you have to stop! Not to smell the roses but to simply stop.

Recently, I finished a project that took a great deal of time to complete. But after finishing the project, I didn’t feel the normal peace that I usually felt from completing a task. Instead I felt anxious. It was in that moment that I realized I had become attached to the projects momentum. I felt like I had to maintain a heightened sense of productivity.

When I feel the momentum of my past influencing a present moment, I slow down my thoughts by doing a Nomentum Exercise.

A Nomemtum Exercise is any exercise that brings you back to the stillness of the present moment.

Nomemtum* Exercise I

1) Slow down by taking slow, deep relaxing breaths.
2) When you have found a comfortable rhythm of breathing, recite these three sentences.
(Take your time, do not rush and remember to breathe.)

There is a space between my thoughts.
In that space, there is stillness.
In that stillness, peace resides.

3) Continue until you feel a sense of peace come over you.

*Nomemtum – the absence of motion, absolute stillness.
