come to your senses

Hello viewers, I hope you'll enjoy this season's Photo Journey, Come to Your Senses . My Photo Journey series is designed to remind us to pause and appreciate even the simplest moments of our amazing existence! I hope you'll find that growing and cultivating this mindset of gratitude can immensely mitigate daily stressors.
When you start seeing those tell-tale signs of burnout and mental strain popping up, it's time to step back, relax, and come to your senses. In a pinch, you can tune into this simple awareness just about anywhere, without special sessions or equipment. Mindful moments can be more powerful than you might think. They can promote calm, clarity, balance, and appreciation, which can be centering forces against the competing demands of the outer world. In addition, these rich pauses can help remind us how fortunate we are to even have the abilities to sense.
So as you enjoy your summer escapades, go ahead-- invite the warm summer air to dance across your bare skin. Marvel at the intricate patterns of leaves or the dance of water in motion. Inhale a heady sweet aroma, soak in summer lights and summer nights, and listen to nature's song. As you wrap your body in the softest, breeziest fabrics, just... breathe! Take time to seek out the sensory delights and gifts of perspective in each small moment--they are there for the taking! Sometimes you just have to slow down and look a little closer. ~efg
