We’ve all been there: we start a new exercise routine, we step up at work, we shift the way we communicate with a family member — and then we fall back into our old ways. We forget or get distracted or life gets busy.
It’s totally normal to go off course. Just try sitting meditation and see how easily your mind loses focus, drifts from the present moment. Before you know it, you’re going over your grocery list or replaying yesterday’s encounter or planning tomorrow’s meeting … Most meditation teachers will tell you that your job is to notice when it happens and train yourself to come back, again and again.
It’s the same with making positive change in our lives. When we practice “tuning back in” to ourselves, and to what matters most to us, success comes more easily. But how exactly do we do this?
In this video montage, you’ll hear insights and inspiration on tuning back in from LifeWork faculty, including Eileen Fisher, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Richard Faulds (Shobhan), Katie Hendricks, Tami Simon, and Jack Kornfield.
