In this episode, I talk about our tendency toward being creatures of comfort (guilty!) and how we are better served by developing a healthy relationship with the uncomfortable. I discuss the beneficial practice of training your mind and body to become friends with discomfort rather than resisting the uncomfortable emotions and moments you face regularly. I touch on the notion from Carl Jung that “what we resist, persists” and how you can lessen the amount of time you spend in resistance by making small shifts in your comfortable daily habits. These small, simple changes can help you learn how to stay with the larger, more intense discomforts you inevitably face. I also share what I’ve learned about sitting with discomfort from my personal yin yoga practice as well as from being sick on and off for the last month(!) I’m excited to talk about this important practice that can significantly improve your levels of calm, ease and joy. At the end of the episode, I give you an opportunity to practice right away and I’ve created a Bonus practice for deeper work incorporating yin yoga. Join me now as we being to create space…
