I invite you to pause for a moment and ponder what makes you, you. Not in a mental sense, but in a completely physical sense. Think about the muscles and bones in your body and how they work when you’re practicing yoga, or walking down the street. And mentally observe your internal organs and how they work in harmony both day and night to keep you healthy, happy and alive.
The intricacies of how the body works is something that many people take for granted. For the most part we all run a life of repetitiveness, which is a good thing, the body likes regularity, but we wake up, eat, go to work, after a little while we eat some more, work some more, go home, eat again and then go to sleep, wake up and repeat. Granted there are some errands, appointments and meetings in there, but in our busy lives, do we take pause to think about what our body is doing inside to keep us performing these everyday tasks? Chances are, probably not.
