Ways to become more flexible:
• Do yoga! (Flexible. Yoga. Ha! ). In times of change, your health may become less reliable, unless you take extra good care of your body. Times of change are generally times of stress for most of us. And stress wears at the immune system. Relaxation and exercise are both proven to decrease stress, and yoga offers both!
• Evaluate your thoughts as they arise; “I can’t…” can be changed to “I will…”
• Give yourself props for your successful shifts. Even small moments of acceptance or positive movement calls for big amounts of recognition. The more you move into ease and grace with the changes, the more graceful and easy change becomes.
• Enroll support from trusted allies. No tree stands alone; it relies on its environment for nourishment and support. So can you.
Bending means moving with the wind, instead of bracing against it. So, let the change tousle you about. Sooner or later, it is sure to become a gentle dance.
