I've noticed my thoughts moving along these lines recently and i'm glad to see them in writing. Chris refers to it as the 'American' way...well, it's become an American 'export' which is governing the lives of urban dwellers worldwide, i believe. Thank heavens for yoga, thank heavens for the savasana. Let me spend some time in the sun today, looking at the trees and springtime flowers and listening to the orchestra of birds. Slow is beautiful.


Great article! Hope to be one small part of bringing the idea of resting, into the workplace in 2012!

Yoga 4 Love

I am so glad to see this! I am that bi polar opposite who lives running with my soy latte, to rarely relaxing and walking by the waterfall. Through this article I have learned about the non productive time that we think of as relaxation, but really is idle busyness. I will take that Savasana and integrate it in my lifestyle. Thank you! =-)


Perhaps this is mindfulness by another name


My dog has taught me to take these recess breaks. As dogwalkers and families and exercisers stride ever forward on the walking trail at the park near my home, he lays down to take in the breeze and sun, and watch the stream of people pass on by along the river's edge.


very helpful - thank you
