Savory Sunday

Savory Sunday

Most dancers are familiar with the phrase “tunnel vision’ and it is something we become very good at – especially when it involves dance technique.

But today let’s turn that laser focus on some other things. Little things. Here’s how: Notice how one particular food or drink tastes and focus intently on savoring it, blocking out everything else. Or notice the petunia growing in a window box and study its beautiful colors, blocking out everything else. It is almost as though the world goes into slow motion for a few brief moments as you focus intently on one single thing.  You get the idea.

Do this every day. Select one thing to savor and put all your efforts and focus into it. You will come away renewed and with a heightened knowledge and appreciation of that object or sensation. It is a simple, effective way to enrich your life.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #74:  
“Pick one thing each day to focus on and savor.”
