Ready Set Go: Starting Points
By Maria Miniello

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time." - John Lubbock
The middle of summer can be a turning point for many.
Those pre-Christmas stresses followed by the festivities and celebrations, are usually followed by a gentle pause in our energetic out-put, a time when we rest and rebuild our energy stores to start a new year.
How do I kick-start that momentum, that enthusiasm?
It starts from within, our breath, that willingness to let-go of the old and bring in the new.
Hold each finger, one at a time, and start each hold with the exhale, allowing the new breath to come in and fill that empty space.
Repeat this for 9 complete exhalations and inhalations on each finger.
How does it feel to reconnect with the breath, to reconnect with our self?
When we become aware of who we are and where we are, we have a starting point.
