January is coming to an end! One month of focusing just 10-15 minutes a day on developing courage definitely helped me move forward in life. I still have some little fears to tackle here and there but I really like the quote "It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop." by Confucius.
This past week I have been spending a lot of time developing the Equanimity course for February and it feels like the stars are aligned! Developing a more balanced could make living with chronic illness so much better. I don't know why I didn't think about this much sooner but I'm going to blame it on the Lyme brain and moldy brain fog! But given our current circumstances in the world with people easily triggered by a comment or politics or news, I think everyone could benefit by developing equanimity.
Equanimity is taught in many Eastern religions but isn't talked a lot about in the western world unless you are a yogi. Equanimity is simply the ability to keep a calm mind despite outside circumstances. Each week will offer a different meditation practice that is simple for the beginner's mind. Six days a week there are small journaling prompts to help you reflect and assess with one day a week to review everything or play catch up on any assignments you missed. It's amazing what 10-15 minutes of mindfulness a day can do to transform your life. I hope you will join me over on Patreon today!
