What If You Could Escape?

Not completely, but for a few minutes


When you’re overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed out…


For me, these are all situations I never knew how to handle well


My body temperature would rise, my palms would sweat, and I would shake


The people around me might not have even noticed, but I sure did, and I hated it


And that’s when I realized I needed a tool to help me with these situations


I couldn’t keep going through life without addressing my own needs


And I didn’t want to keep finding myself in these situations


I needed a solution, but I didn’t know where to look


Instead, I just kept on going with my life


And then I read an amazing book


That changed everything…


The Body


Mental health is all the hype


But I believe it is a balance that is best


Between both your mental, and physical health…

You see, one without the other doesn’t make a ton of sense


You could be in the best shape of your life, but taking Xanax to sleep


Or you could be mentally aware, but then stuffing your face with bad food


Ideally, if you want to be the best version of yourself, you learn to balance both


And I find the more you listen to your body, the more insight you will have


For example, if your body is telling you it's tired, it’s tired, listen to it


If your body is telling you it's anxious, it’s anxious, listen to it


You see, your body knows both physical and mental


It doesn’t just focus on one or the other


It makes sure to prioritize both


And so should you…


The Mind


Our body sends us signals


But our minds dictate our own reality


And that’s why the mind is such a powerful tool…


No joke, try manifesting something consistently for a years time


And then come back to me in a year from now, and explain what happened


Yeah, maybe it will have not manifested yet, but I’m sure you will have made progress


Why? Because you would have been telling yourself the same thing every day


Just like a teacher, parent, or some other elder may have done in the past


And you believed it…it’s the same concept, but now it’s your words


This is how powerful our minds are, and I have experience


Both with good and bad manifestations in my life


And that’s exactly why I know it works


But again, it’s about balance


Both mind and body…


The Human


Made of body and mind


But all different from one to another


Ironically, we can still relate to one another


It’s the reason why you are still reading this blog post


There is something in this story that resonates with you as well


Unfortunately, it probably goes back to the beginning and wanting to escape


But that’s ok, because it brings us together right now to try and get a little better


And what I am about to share with you is not revolutionary or anything


In fact, it has been around for centuries as a tool humans can use


But most humans don’t seem to be using the tool at all


Instead, they find other harmful ways to escape


Shit, I still do the same myself at times


But I have a tool that helps now


And I use it almost daily


To escape a bit...


The Lesson


You should never have to escape


It means something isn’t aligned internally


But the more you practice, the less noise you will hear…


And overtime, you will become more balanced mentally and physically


Getting to the point where you don’t need to escape because you can manage


These are the muscles I’m building every morning when I sit down for my meditation


I close my eyelids and sit with myself in total silence for at least 10 minutes


I do a body scan and check in with myself physically from head to toe


I focus on my breathing to calm the mind and the body as well


I leave my body for a minute, to remember what it is


And I do all this while sitting in the hot sauna


Why?


Because when I really need to escape


From stress, anxiety, and doubt


I just close both my eyes


And start breathing…


Have you tried using this tool yourself?


With Love,

Steven Arthur George
