I’ve realized that everything we humans do is a skill.
Breathing is a skill — if you’re used to shallow breathing, maybe you can learn to breathe deeply, which releases tension and massages your internal organs.
Walking is a skill — if you’re used to walking slowly, be reminded that any time during your stroll, you have the option to walk faster, so you can reach your destination sooner, or even burn a few more calories.
Eating is a skill — if you like to eat quickly, thinking it’s just eating away your at your time, try eating slowly every once in a while, savor every mouthful; after all, eating should be a pleasurable activity.
Standing is also skill — if you like to stand with your back hunched, maybe you can try standing tall next time; studies show that standing erect affects your confidence level.
Even sleeping is a skill — if you like to think of your problems during the day before you go to sleep, later tonight remind yourself what you have read here; everything is a skill — just relax, close your eyes — and make tomorrow a better day.
