Take it on one by one

There are times in our lives where things are simply overwhelming, when it feels like things are coming at you from all directions and you don’t have the energy or ability to stay on top of them.

At times like this, it helps to take a step back, breathe, and just let it all sink in. When you have a mountain of things to deal with, take them on one by one. By doing so, it makes it easier to focus on the now, on the task at hand, rather than all the stuff in the background that just distracts you.

To be focused means to be in the moment. Make that moment an important one.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
