Macro problems such as global warming and the renewal of Mother Earth require broad, consensual, and comprehensive solutions embraced by the world’s governments acting in concert. They are clearly beyond the capacities of a single individual.
However, there are strategies we, as individuals, can employ to step off the treadmill of modern life to renew and restore our body-minds. Indeed, using such strategies is crucial if we are to address the demands of modern life, much less to understand and contribute to the alleviation of macro problems.
We need time to allow our bodies and minds to slow down, rest, and restore our equilibrium and equanimity. In short, we need to schedule time for renewal. It is really not an option: renewal is imperative if we are to function at our best in our lives and careers.
Yoga, meditation, fitness regimens, and frequent vacations are all options for renewal, Take time out to examine your life and see whether you need to take more time for renewal. You won’t regret it.
