I hope you are sitting comfortably right now. Of course you might be reading this on a mobile device as you walk down the street or engage in any number of other activities. That said, the idea of sitting comfortably is probably not strange to you so I’ll continue.
Sitting comfortably from one perspective might relate to how we are positioned with regards to our plans and objectives. If we have everything under control and things are moving along nicely for us then indeed we are sitting comfortably.
The expression ‘sitting comfortably‘ could be connected with our actual posture. The chair or sofa under us might be giving our body such good support we can’t help but be sitting comfortably. If we have to spend any great length of time seated, this is crucial for our ongoing wellbeing.
Sitting comfortably may also refer to how we take on board the moment. Fighting against it might cause stress and distress. Sitting comfortably, accepting even if we don’t like what is occurring, gives us the chance to focus on what we can do to improve the situation or change our attitude towards it.
