Simmer Down Time From Mia Park
It's too darned hot.
The weather is hot-humid in Chicago and our head-hearts are filled with emotional heat from recent events. Violence, anger, and passion concretize the already thick air. How can we catch a full breath? How do we cool our selves? How can we calm down?
There are techniques we can utilize to cool us, inside and out. Try sitali
, a cooling yoga breath.
Take a lukewarm bath and rub coconut oil

The most sustainable action you can take to cool and calm yourself is to cool and calm your mind. If you can influence the way your mind fluctuates, heated reactions become thoughtful responses. For sure, feel all emotions that arise. And continue cultivating a clear, tranquil mind. With a clear, tranquil mind, our internal and external thermometers stay even, never boiling, never freezing.
How to? Meditate. Practice self inquiry. Be relentless in creating personal peace. Love, love love. We're on this life journey together. What you do affects me and vice versa. With personal development, we develop the world. Embrace heavy current events whole heartedly and together we can integrate with cool heads and calm hearts. Thank you for your self-awareness!
