“He who would learn to fly one day must learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”
A Positivity Practice is an activity you do on a regular basis to increase and expand the experience of well-being in your life. It’s the learning to stand and walk that comes before flying, and the ace-level flying that takes you to new heights.
Train Your Brain
Positivity Practices train your reticular activating system, the part of your brain that filters the billions of bits of data your senses process according to what’s important to you. They teach it that you’re on the lookout for specific kinds of feel-good yummies.
Activate the Body-Mind Connection
Some Positivity Practices train your body as well, showing you how to move with more flexibility, freedom, balance and grace. They teach you to be more aware of your breathing, your posture, your sensory input, your levels of tension and relaxation. They show you how to tune into the messages from your heart, how to listen with your whole body and not just your ears. In short, they build your mind-body connection and integrate you.
On subtler, more advanced levels, Positivity Practices lead you to greater familiarity with your larger mind. They expand your awareness and let you experience the ability to direct your thoughts and to release them, to hone your intuition, to center your attention in the present, and to build your capacity for focus.
Positivity Practices are skill-building tools that enrich all aspects of your life, introducing you to more and more parts of yourself and leading you to greater mastery of the magnificent instrument of consciousness that you are. And because they’re all about you, they’re a source of endless discovery and ever-increasing power and joy.
