“If the moment is restrictive, we can experience feeling cramped even outdoors.” #bgdtcoaching.
When feeling cramped, hemmed in, restricted in some manner, it might be difficult to appreciate all that life offers us. Maybe the stress of ‘running to keep still’, or ‘pushing just to resist’ is sapping us of our normal positive outlook.
Though such moments occur to us all from time to time, they are never easy to manage. However, we need not forget about all the great things that are still part of our life. Indeed life offers us much, even if we lose sight of this on occasions because we are feeling cramped.
Yet it takes little effort to mentally list the said great things. Remembering to do so, unfortunately, is another matter. So, right now, whilst I hope the moment is good and that you are not feeling cramped, why not practice recalling what life is offering you today?
Being present, whether feeling cramped or not, keeps us conscious this moment now will pass just as all the others have to date. Thanks for having chosen to spend time here. If you’d like to share your thoughts on the question of feeling cramped, please leave a comment below.
Best wishes to you.
