My house has a Zen corner, and that’s where I escape to when my amygdala signals a threat. I sit there for a while, I just sit.
I run to my Zen corner when my hypothalamus signals my pea-sized pituitary to cause stress, and this pea is quite a mighty pod, I must say. I sit there and pour tea deliberately into the tiny little teacups.
While I deliberately pour the tea into those tiny little teacups, that ‘pea’ commands my adrenal glands to secrete Cortisol, wanting to throw me off balance. I sit in my Zen Corner and start sipping the deliberately poured tea, slowly.
I sit in my Zen Corner, pour the tea deliberately into those tiny little teacups and start drinking it slowly, and while I space my mind between sitting, pouring and sipping and sitting, pouring deliberately and sipping slowly…
…My Brain is
The Sit, The Pour, The Sip.
My house has a Zen corner.
