This week, I’m in a particularly good place for making progress on the road ahead. I’m convalescing at home after a successful surgery on my left foot. I have few, if any, distractions.
The impact of distractions can range from slightly annoying to downright dangerous, especially when on the road.
What can we do if we don’t have the luxury of peace and quiet that I’ve enjoyed as I recover?
We have wonderful spiritual practices that can help along the way in Unity, such as prayer and meditation. They provide a sense of purpose and focused attention when done regularly.
In a bustling environment such as a front office of a business, or rush in hour traffic, such practices are not always practical or possible.
There is an exercise I learned as I’ve worked toward my credentialing goals that is simple and has been astonishingly helpful to me. It’s usually done in some sort of group setting but can be done independently.
The facilitator of the group asked those who have distractions to identify them and share them with the group.
The simple act of identifying the distraction as such took its power away!
It seemed nearly effortless afterward to me to move on with whatever task was ahead after I tried this.
I uphold distraction-free travels for us all!
