Listen. – Listen. To yourself, to your heart, to your body. Make the time to settle down enough to hear the messages you have for yourself. When you’re practicing yoga, listen to the resistances you encounter. Investigate them curiously. Same thing off the mat. Listening to yourself on many levels fosters a greater sense of self-trust and prevents injury as well as a myriad of other miseries.
When you make time regularly to listen to yourself, you learn to listen to other people with much greater skill as well. The more accurately you can hear what someone is telling you, rather than filtering what they’re saying through what you want to hear, the better able you are to respond appropriately. This makes for more successful collaborations and relationships.
