Stoic Week 2016 – Wednesday

The morning reflection for today reminds me of the idea in Zen Buddhism that you don’t need robes and a mountain monastery to have a retreat. Paying attention to your thoughts, your emotions and your body can take you out of the noise of daily life.

Mindfulness was particularly helpful today, I caught a pretty strong flu and re-centering myself on my breathing kept me from stressing over all the disruption to my normal activities.
