November news and perspectives!

Posted by Kerry Turner on Saturday, October 31, 2015 Under: Yoga E-Newlsetter

Happy November Yogi’s!

One of my favorite month’s of the year! I love how quiet everything gets when it rains (and even better when it snows!), I love wearing warm, cozy sweaters, I love my toques, I love my rain boots and slushing around in puddles like a kid! I love the storms and the reminder that everything is in flux and always changes! I love the darkness and grey as a contrast to the bright, blue sky as it “allows” me a chance to catch up on indoor activities like reading, writing, yoga, meditation, cuddles with my boys! I love creating warm foods and baking yummy treats to eat with my tea! I absolutely love this time of year. However, I realize that my perspective is not always shared with many people. And it’s just that, perspective. We all have differing perspectives, on every topic. The more we can step back and recognize that our likes and dislikes, our preferences, what makes us “happy”, is all simply perspectives. Sometimes the conflicts we get into in our lives come from an inability to see from another’s perspective. Next time you find yourself in a conversation, and you don’t “agree” with the other person, take a few deep breaths, recognize that it is just “perspective” and see if you can observe from another’s perspective in order to understand the other person better. 

Check out this TED Talk where Emily Balcetis discusses perspectives a little deeper, and relates to the perspective of exercise. Only 14minutes for a great video!! Grab your tea, get cozy and check it out J
