Lessons From The Mat

by Lori Mancini in Worry with No Comments


Eckhardt Tolle once said, “Life is not as serious as the mind makes it out to be.”
I try to think of this quote every time my mind wanders to worry. You could literally worry about everything. Your family, your friends, ex-boyfriends / ex-girlfriends, traffic, the weather, the economy, the election, holidays, illness, food shortages … At what point, do we throw our arms up in the air and say enough is enough?!?!
During yoga, we are asked to let go of our fears, our concerns, our troubles. Those worries out of my control are the first I let go of and I have no doubt they’re the first to go for you as well. Why not implement the yoga lesson in everyday life? Let go of those worries out of your control.
And remember this piece of advice from a very wise yogini: Do not worry your pretty little head over things you cannot control. Relax. Worry causes wrinkles.
