Get up and stretch

Stretch your body, stretch your mind. Reach beyond the space where you’ve been confining yourself.

Stretch your awareness, stretch your perceptions. There’s more to know, to imagine, to feel.

Stretch, and refresh your experience of being alive. Stretch, and open up brand new possibilities.

It’s all too easy to get yourself stuck in a self-reinforcing pattern. Yet as comfortable as that can seem to be, you could be walling yourself off from a whole lot of richness.

Stretch yourself a little bit past where you are. Notice how good it feels to uncover new potential, and imagine all you can do with it.

When your mind, your body, your spirit have been lingering too long, get up and stretch. Let yourself be filled with a fresh shot of energy and inspiration.
