Ghandi once said, “All of man’s problems, stem from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”
In this fast paced world and this high tech age of convenience and 24, hour “everything”, it is no wonder that we have become stressed, overwhelmed, overly connected to “things” and disconnected from nature.
For this reason, I was more than just intrigued when a concept or practice was introduced to me called the “Sit Spot”
The Sit Spot is described as an age-old practice of going to one spot in nature on a regular basis over a long period of time and just being still and observing your surroundings
How can the Sit Spot benefit you, your well-being and perhaps even your business?
First, one can’t deny that there is something special about finding a magical personal spot to just be. I often speak about going for walks when you get stuck in life or in your business just to disconnect from everything and be alone with your thoughts and feelings. I often use the walk to visualize, to pray and get some much needed fresh air and exercise. The “sit spot” has its similarities to my walking in nature but I believe it takes it a step further…
It slows things down in a very fast paced world. It allows you to embrace the importance of taking time for onself. It is a major opportunity for personal growth and it let’s nature just… “happen”.
In our interactive push-botton world, when was the last time you took the time to just “let nature happen”. When was the last time you lived in the present moment and observed what was around you outdoors instead of being in constant action and interaction. It’s amazing and powerful when you just “be”. You will be amazed at what you discover.
So how does this exposure to nature help you in your business and in your life? Exposure to nature helps:
– promote good health
– It is known to reduce stress
– Provides a peaceful calming environment and effect
– Has been connected with higher test scores and graduation rates
– It helps promote creativity
– It increases self confidence
Sit spots, having just been introduced to me are becoming a daily habit. I intend to share my experiences with the “sit spot” practice when I am well into it and I invite you to do the same.
For the next 30 days, take at least a few minutes a day, pick an outdoor spot that you will return to every day and just …stop and be still.
The results can be amazing. I look forward to hearing from you about how it has helped you.
To your success,
P.S I was just part of a 4 week private Inner Power Intensive for women, that was designed to help you take your life to the next level, get unstuck and finally get the results you deserve.
