Integration. Assimilation. Celebration.

It doesn’t matter what you call it — the last stage of any action (particularly personal growth!) needs to have time to pause.

In yoga, it’s Savasana. Though it looks like we’re not doing anything – it’s the culmination of the entire practice. The mind, body + soul need time to absorb, relax, and reset.

Then we can begin again.


When do you hit the reset button?

    Love this! The time to pause… one that doesn’t come easy… but when it does, sweetest damn thing to feel. =)

  2. You’re so right about it not coming easy — I think we’ve ingrained this idea that to be productive we must work hard, yet this moment of pause can be hard + it can be the most productive of all. Thank you, Maia!

    Not often enough, TT :/. Although as I’ve been musing over my reply, I realize I actually do “reset” sometimes…sipping tea every afternoon, even if I only “reset” for 20 seconds, and very often after dancing as I slowly stretch on the floor. Thank you for the wise nudge to do more of this. xoxo

    P.s. Terrific visual here, as always. Thank you!

    I have a new practice of meditation and yoga at dawn. This is totally my reset time and I am wrong without it!

  6. ST, I love the idea of a simple reset in the midst of the day such as sipping tea — like you do. Thank you for reminding me that resetting can be embedded in your daily routine…so natural. Happy Weekend, my friend! xoxo

  8. What an awesome practice, Sara! I can imagine how this reset becomes an integral part of your day. Thank you for stopping by!
