Be a Big Kid – a de-stressing idea!!!

One great way to quickly restore balance & enjoying good health is to completely experience the ‘present moment’ – in a ‘transcendent’ way, not a stressed way.

Funnily enough, by far the best teachers/examples of this are young children. Before we ‘grow up’ too much, a young child’s world is full of fascination, wonder & innocence (lack of judgement/labels). To observe this state of unbounded freedom & simple joyousness actually helps that same health producing ‘vibration’ resonate within us.

Being immersed in the moment, releases our minds from the day to day stresses of our life and realigns our mind & body to it’s essential nature – pure bliss consciousness – and watching young children play is one of the best ways to bring this experience of joy/bliss to the heart.


Watch and learn from young children – catch them when they are completely immersed in some activity and try to witness the world through their experience – totally carefree, one-pointed & immersed in the moment. Then take that ‘childlike’ quality into your own activities. * Note; being childlike does not mean ‘immature’ – it means being simple, unbounded and impervious to what others are thinking about you.
