The impact of a healthy lifestyle can be hard to grok when we are younger. And often times our lifestyle just kind of happens without us consciously choosing it. Maybe we don’t really think about when we are going to eat or sleep, we just do it when we remember to. Maybe we don’t exercise until we’ve gained 50 extra pounds. Maybe we do not consider conscious relaxation until we experience a panic attack at work. Perhaps we think it is normal to not sleep soundly because no one else does. In the same vein, it is unimaginable to feel the bodily sensations of a person who has practiced yoga for 30 years. It is nearly impossible to comprehend the impact a regular meditation practice has unless you have one. We are unable to comprehend the impact something done, or not done, over the course of decades can have on the quality of our bodies, minds, emotions and spirits. . . – Amy Williams
