Rough life

Life is rough. Tough. Too much to do, too many people expecting too much, too much homework, scary tests, sick people who might die. This is what I hear from my students. They're stressed out, overwhelmed, freaking out, getting sick.

So I tell them:

Put your feet up. Get comfy. Close your eyes.

Imagine you're floating up out of your body. Look down at that stressed self. Float higher.
Float over to the beach. Think about how many drops of water there are in the ocean.

Float back to your body.
Eyes closed, wonder what you're supposed to learn from this situation.
What's the lesson here?

Life is rough? Good! Time to learn something.
Look for a pattern. Make a change.
Get healthier.
