There are days when I feel so scattered and over-whelmed.
Hours of turmoil as thoughts and ‘what ifs’ swirl through my head in a never ending circuit.
Minutes of heart pounding, pulse racing shakiness.
Moments of emotion and anxiety, eyes brimming with tears, lips trembling and throat constricting on the verge of sobs.
I step into stillness.
My stillness is found outside, in nature.
I weed or dig, I wander in the garden and cut plants back, I walk by the river, I lay on the grass.
These are the things that centre my heart, that permit anxiety to dissipate, and a stillness settle.
What is your recipe for a centred heart?
