It’s coming up to that time of the year again where life can become a bit overwhelming. Your head is swirling around with far too much information like shopping lists, calendar dates, concerts, parties, Christmas trees, fairy lights, extended hours, bills, money…. the little wheels in your head are turning at rapid rates and little pulses of panic shoot through your body every now and then as you contemplate whether you are on top of it all.
It’s easy to get swept up in it all and run around like a headless chook becoming less and less productive as you slip into some sort of Christmas-mania. This is when we need to remember to stop and breathe, still the mind and recoup.
Walking into A-Space in Collingwood gives you that instant hit of stillness that you need so badly when you’ve worked yourself up into a frantic state. While the world is buzzing along outside in the busy streets of Melbourne, just one step through the doors of A-Space is a world of peace and clarity waiting there for you.
A-Space offers a range of different classes, all aimed at keeping you “clear, calm and connected”. Shura caught up with Manoj, Co-founder of A-Space for a class and a chat about why meditation is so important in combatting stress in our ever increasingly busy lives.
