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 for our attention to wander. Just try sitting to meditate and see how easily your mind loses focus and the next thing you know, you’re going over your grocery list or replaying yesterday’s encounter or planning tomorrow’s meeting … The goal is to notice when it happens and train ourselves to come back, again and again.
Why bother? To sustain the changes we’re choosing to make and prioritize what matters most.
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.
