In this episode, I reflect on how can we access our BEING mind in the midst of a DOING world? 

Upon recording this episode, I am in the depths of the alps, in a valley called Roseg, just outside of the bougie town of St. Moritz. My holiday mode is in full activation, and I can feel my body and mind in a very quiet, serene state of rest. I am far from the bustling city of Singapore, I am away from the friendship orbs and home responsibilities, I am away from the sheer buzz I can feel from my fellow neighbors. The complete change of environment has put in me in a state of BEING which I can feel so intimately.

It's like I’ve taken a back seat in life, where this time and space has allowed me to relish on the little miracles Life has to offer. I can find my breath with greater ease, and more often. The attitude of gratitude becomes more apparent. A stark contrast from the constant swirl of energy and the need to fill in moments of down time that I experience in Singapore. I often wonder why simply doing nothing proves to be such a challenge in the city, not to mention the perception that if you aren’t doing anything, you are wasting your time and thus aren’t moving efficiently on the hamster wheel.

As I feel my nervous system "smoothen" out, it has got me reflecting on what it means to be in BEING state of mind vs a DOING state of mind. I am reflecting on the ways I live in both extremes, and why it is that we can’t find this middle ground where there is a healthy balance of simply BEING, and thus so tied into the moment, but also to operate in a healthy state of DOING where we can support ourselves financially and to keep that drive and fire in our bellies burning.
