Staying Calm.



After speaking with Kim about composing oneself during an interview, I began to remind myself to be calm whenever I started to feel nervous or out of control. It's not easy, but I figure, like everything else, it will take practice.

Like stretching, for example.

For about a month now, I have been stretching more often and massaging my muscles. Today, I can bend over fully, legs straightened, palms on the floor. It doesn't happen immediately.
 I spend about 5 minutes warming up, by slowly letting gravity pull the weight of my head down to the ground.

It is the most relaxing thing. I breathe deeply into all the tension in my muscles.
I rise up slowly. All the blood is in my head, and I'm smiling, ready to work.

I've found that feeling calmer has a lot to do with feeling good in your own skin. ;)
To more calm days,

Always,
