Having an Opportunity to make a Fresh Start

Following all the signs from nature, we’re reminded of the opportunity to start fresh everyday.

This time of year it gets darker and colder.  There are holiday celebrations and a new year is coming. All of this can lead us to a new beginnings and intentions.  Having an opportunity to make a fresh start is exciting and maybe little anxious.

When we have a lot of things pulling at us – especially this time of year – it’s important to find a moment, or several little moments, to bring ourselves back to center.

The Winter Solstice is the time of ending and beginning,  a powerful time — a time to contemplate your immortality.  A time to forgive, to be forgiven, and to make a fresh start.  A time to awaken.  Frederick Lenz

Ideas to help us start fresh or reset, on a daily or regular basis, can include:

  • setting  a reminder on your phoncatspaw cushionse to stand and focus on your breath
  • have a cushion in your office to sit on between appointments or meetings
  • set a corner in your home to unplug and sit
  • if you’re driving and come to red light, take in a few deep breaths
  • where ever you are come back to your breath
  • write down a do-able intention
