Living with Ease

What exactly does it mean to “live with ease”?

When I started learning about mindfulness and meditation, I didn’t really know what was meant by “live with ease”.

I’ve come to realize that living with ease is the exact opposite of how I used to live…..

I used to be SO uptight, tense, and completely stressed out ALL THE TIME. Everything was urgent. I was always in a rush, always worried about being late, always worried about making a mistake, always trying to plan 10 steps ahead so I could control anything that might happen.

Any minor inconvenience became a huge crisis…..if I dropped something on the floor, I’d think “Oh my God, I can’t handle this. I don’t have time to deal with this! Why is this happening to me?” The thought of anything serious happening caused paralyzing fear and anxiety. If I couldn’t handle the little things, how would I ever cope with something major?

Life was even more stressful after my daughter came along and my world became even more unpredictable (and sleep became a thing of the past).

Then I found yoga, and I started learning about mindfulness and meditation……

I still have a long way to go, but I am gradually learning to relax and go with the flow; to be more present; to accept things as they are; to have faith that things will work out; and to “live with ease”, and I hope you can too!
