Commitment-Phobia?

A lot of people are terrified of the C-word. You know… Commitment. That word that mentally detonates many of us into instant fight or flight response and causes us to cleave desperately to our perceived vision of “ our freedom” which inevitably consists of: bad habits, tired routines and disappointing outcomes. So what’s to fear in making a commitment to the change you want to see in your own life?

For many of us, taking the first step to anything new is terrifying. And ironically, it often seems like the more we desire something, the harder it is to take that first step.   What is actually an easy task, such as making a phone call, scheduling an appointment, even sending an email or registering on a website, becomes an insurmountable challenge. Psychological paralysis sets in, followed by guilt.

All of us have been there, yet some of us, miraculously, have gotten out. What does it take to make that commitment to You, to be there for yourself the way you wish others would be? What does it take to keep the promises you make to yourself, the improvements that your life is waiting for, and the progress that you long to see?

You may want to sit down for this:
it takes a few seconds.
A few seconds.

Let me just repeat that for emphasis:
it only takes a few seconds.

In a matter of seconds, you can take your mind from 0 to 100 on a scale of motivation to take the first step toward your new life. In a few seconds, you can remind yourself of the commitment you’ve made to You and the fact that if you don’t honor that commitment, no one will. That’s right, no one. No one will improve your diet and eating habits, get you to exercise more, or do anything else that reflects the commitment that only you can make to yourself, and the care that only you can give yourself. In a matter of only a few seconds, you can drum up all the thoughts and reasons you’ve been having all along for taking that very first step. You can drum up the energy, the desire, the motivation, and the confidence you need by simply focusing your thoughts on doing just that. This is not difficult. After all, you are directing your thoughts all day long, doing it constantly. The only difference is that here, you are directing your thoughts intentionally toward your best interest.

There is nothing difficult about this; all it takes is commitment and honoring that commitment.

Practice taking your mind from 0 to 100 on the motivation scale on a regular basis. It’s about focusing on the kind of thoughts you think and not letting any other kind of thoughts take over. Convince yourself to do whatever it is you’ve been meaning to do and stop procrastinating. In a matter of seconds, something that’s been nagging you for months or years could be off your mind forever.

Aren’t you worth it?
Don’t you deserve it?
So how about right now?

Just prime yourself up: take your thoughts from 0 to 100, and go ahead and take that first little step that will change your entire life in a few seconds.

Stretch, Breathe & Relax

Beginning in October 2013, Wednesday evenings at Morphe will be the place to be to get your regenerative groove on.  Stretch, Breathe & Relax is the newest of our class offerings, focusing on the regeneration and rejuvenation of the mind, body, and soul by combining total-body stretching with profound breathing techniques, visualization, and deep relaxation.

Rooted in such ancient practices as Yoga, the practice of uniting breath and motion to rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit is not new.  What many don’t realize, however, is that stretching exercises often cause a slew of injuries: in fact, it is in the act of stretching that human muscles are most easily injured.  Stretching exercises must be done in a proper sequence, with the breath used as an instrument to support the intensity and variety of different movements.  This workshop will guide you through a series of physical movements that allow your entire body to stretch and release physical as well as emotional tension by using the breath in harmony with the body to achieve maximum results.

It is important to warm up and cool down the body at the beginning and end of any stretching routine.  It is also extremely important to utilize breathing techniques to allow for greater extension and increased physical flexibility.  The combination of deep breathing, visualization, and physical movement working in deliberate harmony allows for a far deeper experience of stretching, elongating muscles, promoting balance and proper posture, and releasing psychological, emotional and physical stress.

The act of stretching, done properly in conjunction with deep breathing, relieves muscle tension and pain, increases suppleness and elasticity in the joints, and promotes blood circulation to the entire body, including the internal organs. It also strengthens the core, tones the entire body, quiets the mind, and builds physical, emotional, and spiritual strength, endurance, balance and flexibility: the path to holistic rejuvenation.
