Where Is Your Focus?

Having severe back pain for many years I realized one day that most of my attention and time was spent on thinking about my pain, not on getting better. This does not mean I was not trying to get better or that I did not want to get better -- of course I did. However, the more pain I had the more I focused on it. This left less energy for getting better. As the saying goes... More



Try a simple exercise to begin developing your focusing abilities. Pick something like relaxing your shoulders or maybe you want to stop thinking about something or someone that is bothering you. You can pick anything that is taking a lot of your attention and that you would like to shift or change. You then put your attention or thoughts onto something else that is more positive and relaxing.

It is important to know that often when we begin to focus on something our minds get distracted very quickly. This is normal for most people, so do not get discouraged. Your job is to bring that wandering mind back to what you are focusing on as often as possible. When your mind wanders, you will continue to re-focus it. Every time you focus, you are building your mind's muscles. Therefore, your job is not to stay focused, because you won't for very long, but to re-focus your mind over and over. Notice how this affects your body and mind. Do you feel different?


Stay tuned for details about my upcoming talk and workshop in January 2007
