Being present while everyone around you has heads bowed is a trial, but I’m going to challenge you to do it anyway. We are staring at our phones in public now like we are standing in an elevator expectantly staring up at the lit- up floor indicators to avoid talking. Loops are being sold to us to attach to our phones to, in turn, attach to us—making our devices more of an appendage rather than a tool or accessory, no longer needing them to ring to gain attention.
Sometimes we all need a trusted, reliable, handy and simple way to shift our energy, calm us down, refocus our thoughts, and prepare us for the moments ahead. If you struggle with anxiety or panic, self-doubt, obsessive intrusive thoughts, or impulsive behavior, this technique is a great one to practice and master.
